KENOMO project establishes a long-term collaboration between the Faculty of Computing and Information Management at KCA University (KCAU), Network Partner University of Nairobi (UoN), School of Computing and Informatics and the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at the University of Stavanger (UiS, Norway), Linking Industry with Academia (LIWA), and Center for Internationalization of Education (SIU). The main goal of the KENOMO project is to recognize and empower under-represented groups in Computer Science.
The KENOMO project will provide masters and doctorate students from KCA University and University of Nairobi a fully accredited mobility stay at University of Stavanger starting 1st August 2018.
Through funding from the Norwegian Partnership Programme for Global Academic Cooperation (NORPART), 25 Masters students from KCAU and UoN will each gain 30 ECTS- the European Credit and Accumulation System- during a six month stay at UiS. Furthermore, 9 Doctorate students from KCAU and UoN will attend UiS for three months and earn 10 ECTS each, while working under joint supervision to perform research leading to a peer-reviewed publication. One PhD student from UiS will attend KCAU and UoN for 3 months, guest lecturing while working under joint supervision to perform research leading to a peer-reviewed publication.
KCAU Masters and Doctorate students are invited to apply to participate in this project. To apply fill in the application form below by 23rd March 2018
