This course provides job-focused training for specific roles or careers in health and health related occupations.

The Market survey established that demand for skilled workers in the field of health monitoring and evaluation (HME) is growing rapidly. The central issue is the lack of skilled employees who can monitor health related programmes and evaluate the impact of their implementation in a systemic and professional way.

The Certificate in Health Monitoring and Evaluation is designed for learners with little or no experience in monitoring and evaluation. It caters for individuals without any prior work experience in the health sector and those who may have some work experience in the health sector but need to gain a relevant formal qualification that both enhances their career prospects and opens avenues for further studies in the discipline.

The purpose of the Certificate in Health Monitoring and Evaluation is to provide personnel that are skilled enough to apply health and monitoring techniques to monitor and evaluate health programmes to improve outcomes.

Mode of Study

Campus Learning

 

The Computer Engineering programme at Botho University runs for five years plus a sixmonth sandwiched internship programme. There are eleven semesters, out of which the students will be expected to do an internship (Professional Practice) in one of the semesters.

A Computer Engineering graduate studies the design of systems such as hardware and software, digital systems and computers. They focus on the digital device programming and interfacing between devices and users. Their work, for example, will involve areas such as the development of mobile phones, alarm systems and x-ray equipment, which use a combination of embedded software and hardware. They can also work in areas such as Computer system design, Scientific Research and Development, Computer and Electronic Manufacturing, Telecommunications, Wholesale and trade and Public administration.

Programme details The programme consists of core (required) and elective modules as detailed below. Some modules may have pre-requisites (i.e. may require the student to pass another module or set of modules first). Some modules may be co-requisite (i.e. such modules are required to be taken together). The number at the end of the module in parenthesis indicates the credit load of the module. 1 credit is equal to 10 hours of learning (guided, in-class and independent combined); therefore a 10-credit module requires on average 100 hours of learning from the student.
