The Pan African University (PAU) is a African Union initiative to breathe life into African higher education, to counter brain drain and improve the employability of African graduates. While the PAU is based in Addis Ababa, the PAU Institute for Energy and Water Sciences (PAUWES) is located at the Abou Bakr Belkaid University of Tlemcen in Algeria, and in September of 2016 the first tranche of 26 graduated from in Water and Energy Engineering.
AltGen has been retained to assist PAUWES to assist these graduates with their job search in the water and energy markets in Africa. With graduates from all over the continent, including Egypt, Benin, Kenya and others, we will be reaching deeply into the water and energy markets, empowering the students to be able to market themselves to prospective employers.
The skills are there, now we need to leverage these skills to the broader benefit of Africa.
