This was a hands-on course that emphasized interactive examples and practice.

Prof. Dr. Henk G. Sol a world renowned scholar of Information Systems research. Professor Henk has supervised over 800 masters’ students, promoted 78 PhDs and currently has over 20 PhD students near completion at the University of Groningen under his PhD school of engaged scholars.

Participants were PhD students in both science and humanities at various levels of their research from Makerere University, Kyambogo University, Busitema University, Mbrarara University of Science and Technology, Ministry of Energy – Kenya and UTAMU.
