UNBS SIGNS MOU WITH UCU TO PROMOTE QUALITY STANDARDS IN INSTITUTIONS OF HIGHER LEARNING

The Uganda National Bureau of Standards (UNBS) on Thursday signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Uganda Christian University (UCU) Mukono to promote Standardization and Quality Assurance in Institutions of Higher Learning.

According to the Executive Director of UNBS Mr. David Livingstone Ebiru, the Bureau intends to promote quality culture by mainstreaming quality standards in education curricula of Institutions of Higher Learning, especially Universities and Tertiary Institutions.

According to Mr. Ebiru, Students are the future Innovators, Industrialists and Entrepreneurs who must appreciate the importance of quality standards as a tool for competition and market access of products, given that the global focus of consumers is the demand for safe and quality products.

The UCU Vice Chancellor, Prof. Aaron Mushengyezi, pledged full support to ensure the objectives of the collaboration are met. “We are ready to work with UNBS in developing standardization curricular, trainings in short courses, research, and internship opportunities for our students to ensure that the standards of this country are upheld,” said Prof. Mushengyezi.
