KeNoMo (Kenya-Norway Mobility Programme for Computer Science Education) selected for NORPART grant


Senter for Internasjonalisering og Utdanning (SIU) recently published which projects will receive funding under the NORPART (Norwegian Partnership Programme for Global Academic Cooperation) programme. In total, SIU received 114 eligible applications from 19 higher education institutions in Norway. A total of 21 projects were selected for funding.

One of the projects that will be funded is KeNoMo (Kenya-Norway Mobility Programme for Computer Science Education) led by Professor Chunming Rong, leader of the Center for IP-based Service Innovation at the University of Stavanger (UiS). 

KeNoMo is 5 years in duration and establishes a long-term collaboration between the Faculty of Computing and Information Management at KCA University (KCAU) in Nairobi, Kenya, and the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at UiS.

KeNoMo will provide student mobility between KCAU and UiS. The project will center on education in shared subjects within computer science. It will further support internationalization at the home institutions through joint PhD supervision, summer schools, and guest lectures.

Both KCAU and UiS recognize the importance of excellent education in the fields of data science and cybersecurity. Modern decision-making processes are increasingly driven by cybersecurity considerations and informed by data science. Competent data science and cybersecurity professionals are already in strong demand, and this demand is expected to grow. Therefore, students who receive a high quality education in these fields will benefit from a wider array of career choices, while contributing to the economic growth and progress of society. Developing advanced competencies through this strategic partnership will benefit both Universities in terms of education quality in computer science.
