MUST Wins Mozilla Grant

Meru University of Science and Technology (MUST) has won a grant of USD $25,000 from Mozilla: Kenya’s inaugural cohort of responsible computing challenge.  MUST is among eight (8) Universities that have received the grant.  The eight universities will be the first group of grantees in the country since Mozilla announced that the initiative would expand to Kenya and India with support from the United States Agency for International Development (USAID).

“The eight awardees have proposed projects that will embed ethics and holistic thinking into their Computer Science curricula, for the increased benefit of their students and society at large. Students who engage with these curricula will inculcate responsible thinking in their innovations as they join the workforce as developers and entrepreneurs.” Dr. Chao Mbogho, Responsible Computing Challenge (RCC) Fellow, Kenya.

The winning team from MUST consists of Dr. Mary Mwadulo (Principal Investigator and Chairperson of the Computer Science Department), Dr. Amos Chege (Coordinator, Innovations & Entrepreneurship and Lecturer, Computer Science Department) and Antony Irungu (Lecturer, Computer Science Department).
