From 19 – 30 September 2022, Prof. Kisangiri Michael, Centre Lead at CENIT@EA and Dr. Mussa Ally Dida, Dean of the School of Computational and Communication Science and Engineering (CoCSE) visited project coordinator University of Oldenburg. During their stay, their participated in a Teach-the-teacher module on SAP S4/HANA and got to know the research landscape in Oldenburg.
Getting to know SAP S4/HANA
With Prof. Kisangiri and Dr. Mussa, who is also the Deputy Centre Lead at CENIT@EA, the two leading representatives of the Centre participated in the Teach-the-Teacher module on SAP S4/HANA to pass on their experience to their staff, fellow teachers and supervisors. Colleagues in Oldenburg who are experienced experts on the subject introduced their colleagues from Tanzania to the use of SAP S4/HANA in teaching contexts by involving them in their lectures during their stay and introducing the virtual learning environment SAP University Competence Centre (UCC) Magdeburg to them.
The UCC will allow them and their colleagues at NM-AIST to enrich their courses with various practice-oriented teaching and learning environments. Staff at NM-AIST and the students in the Master program for Embedded and Mobile Systems will receive access to the UCC which will allow the students to practically implement learned processes based on SAP technologies.
Research for Research
The second focus of Prof. Kisangir`s and Dr. Mussa`s stay in Oldenburg was an exchange on research activities. The Centre of Excellence will start its own Research Hub during the remaining run of the project to be continued after the project`s runtime. For this purpose, Prof. Kisangiri and Dr. Mussa discussed research projects at the VLBA department with the responsible colleagues and visited partner companies to deep-dive into the transfer activities of the department. They also met with colleagues fom COAST, the Research Centre for Environment and Sustainability at the University of Oldenburg. The intense exchanges from colleague-to-colleague can provide the basis to further sharpen and strengthen the research profile of NM-AIST.
