First Annual School of Engineering Conference

Road to 2063 - Unlocking development through engineering and innovations

The Malawi University of Business and Applied Sciences (MUBAS) has among strategic pillars the advancement of conduct of intense research and consultancies that impact both the local and global village. The Malawi 2063 which is drawn from SDGs aims to achieve Agricultural Productivity and Commercialization, Industrialization and Urbanization in a sustainable manner.

The School of Engineering is one vehicle that MUBAS is using to unlock opportunities to deliver Malawi 2063 by having annual conferences on engineering research and consultancy outputs. It is therefore expected that the diverse engineering field practitioners will own and patronize these conferences as one way of remaining relevant to the country development and the profession.
