MAKERERE UNIVERSITY PROFILE

MAKERERE UNIVERSITYmukBACKGROUND Makerere University is a reservoir of the country’s intellectual elite with the core obligation to champion social, political and economic change in society through professional extension services and influencing policy. Having started out in 1922 as a technical college, affiliated to the University of London, Makerere University mutated into one of the three constituent colleges of the University of East Africa in 1963.Later in 1970 it went on to become an independent University by an Act of Parliament. This status continued until 2001 when the Universities and Other Tertiary Institutions Act was enacted.

The University is harbored on three campuses- the Main campus on Makerere Hill, 5 km from the city centre, the College of Health Sciences- Formerly (Faculty of Medicine and School of Public Health) on Mulago Hill adjacent to the National Referral Hospital – 2 km from the Main Campus and the Agricultural Research Institute, Kabanyolo 30kms from Kampala.The University Estate also includes, Buyana Stock Farm – under the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine which is located 60kms on the Kampala -Masaka highway. Kasangati Health Centre- Linked to the School of Public Health. Kibale Forest Reserve under the Institute of Environment and Natural Resource and Budongo Forest Reserve under the Faculty of Forestry and Nature Conservation. Attached to the Institute of Adult and Continuing Education are 9 adult education and extramural centres.

Before the decision to turn Makerere University into a collegiate university, the university had one Constituent College (the College of Health Sciences) and twenty two Faculties, Schools and Institutes offering day, evening and external study programmes to a student body of over 30,000 undergraduates and postgraduates.

The University Council together with the University Senate observed that Makerere University had become too big to be managed at the Centre. There was a need to divide functions between the central administration of the university and viable constituent colleges. The transformation into a collegiate university has involved restructuring of the twenty two existing academic units into nine (9) constituent colleges and one (1) school.And it was on 1st July 2011 when Makerere University got fully transformed into a collegiate university with nine (9) constituent colleges and one (1) school.

College of agricultural and environmental sciences

To establish a world class college of agricultural and health sciences, the scholars that were tasked with the job of establishing the college had to draw ideas from a wide spectrum of structures of other Universities around the globe that have Colleges with disciplines related to agriculture, forestry environment, food and geographical sciences.
And it was through their findings that the scholars managed to trace high levels of course duplication within the faculties that were running agriculture and environmental science- related programs. As a result a number of programs were clustered together as a mechanism to reconcile the earlier anomalies which were undermining the quality of education passed on to the students.

From that arrangement, three major clusters, which emerged, constituted the three schools and two research institutes in the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences. Since the fundamental overhaul of the structures of the college, the college has now steadily grown into an outstanding training ground for agriculturalists and environmentalists.

The College of Business and Management Sciences (COBAMS)
CoBAMS is an educational unit and of an exemplary combination. Rigorous academic procedures, commitment to quality education, extensive investment, solid management and continuous development are the principles that will raise the College’s profile and shape its growth over time. Students at CoBAMS will enjoy the advantages of the unique combination of FEMA and ISAE that comes with offering educational experience which is shaped by commitment, enthusiasm, discipline, effectiveness, insight and creativity: an educational experience which can withstand the demands of the contemporary world. The college is committed to establishing a College environment that allows it’s students to flourish and to grow intellectually, emotionally, and socially.

Under the school is the Faculty of Economics and Management (FEMA) which evolved out of the Makerere University Institute of Economics (MUIE). It was formerly the Department of Economics, under the Faculty of Social Sciences before the year 2000. MUIE was elevated to a faculty status in October 2004.

The faculty was mandated to teach Economics, Business and Management courses in Makerere University as well as carrying out research. The Faculty of Economics and Management is comprised of five departments which include the Department of Economic Theory and Analysis, Department of Development Economics, Department of Economic Policy and Planning, Department of Finance and Accounting and, the Department of Marketing and Management.

The college also pays homage to the Institute of Statistics and Applied Economics that was established in July 1969 as an autonomous Institute, within the legal framework of Makerere University. It was to provide facilities for high level professional training for personnel in Statistics and Applied Economics so as to meet the urgent needs of Uganda and other East African countries, as well as other English-speaking African countries.

The ISAE has grown both in scope and depth of its programmes and services since it was founded four decades ago. In order to consolidate its past successes in training statisticians at professional level and to adequately develop the post-graduate and specialized programmes, the University Council approved three departments for the ISAE, namely: Department of Statistical Methods, Department of Planning and Applied Statistics, and the Department of Population Studies.

The individual disciplinary areas of Economics, Statistics and Population Studies offered in the college essentially serve the development policy arena, and greatly support the efficient and effective functionality of Business and Management of organizations, across the spectrum of public, private and non-governmental/civil society sectors.

College of Engineering, design art and Technology
The college of Engineering, design art and Technology started out as Faculty of Technology in 1969 though it fully opened its doors in July 1970 with an intake of 26 students in the three traditional areas of Civil, Electrical and Mechanical Engineering.
That was the time when the Uganda Government realized that industries needed more technical manpower than what was being produced, mainly from the University of Nairobi and abroad at that time.

The college of boasts of three schools which includes the School of Engineering, Margaret Trowell School of Industrial Fine Arts and the School of Built environment. The School of Engineering houses the three traditional Engineering Departments in Makerere University and hopes to be a leading school in Engineering Education and Research innovations in Africa.

The school produces graduate engineers who are well founded in engineering fundamentals, blended with the highest standards of professional and ethical behavior, and are prepared to meet the market technical challenges and the needs of the society. The School offers both undergraduate and graduate programs in various engineering disciplines consisting of civil, electrical, and mechanical engineering. The management and use of the built environment is increasingly becoming of paramount importance in Uganda and the world over.

There are many challenges associated with the ever increasing population of the world including overpopulated cities, inadequate housing, mushrooming slums, land related conflicts, poor land management, corruption in construction, cost and time overruns, inadequate public infrastructure and many others.

These challenges are especially apparent in developing countries like Uganda. And it is against that background that while forming the college of Engineering, Design, Art and Technology, the university thought it wise that it should incorporate a School of Built Environment into the college. The School of Built Environment houses the Department of Architecture and Physical Planning; the Department of Geomatics and Land Management; and the Department of Construction Economics and Management.

The school currently offers programmes in architecture, physical and urban planning, land surveying, quantity surveying, land economics and construction management. Moving on, the Margaret Trowell School of Industrial and Fine Art (MTSIFA) is the oldest and one of the most celebrated Art School in East Africa. Founded in 1937 by Mrs. Margaret Trowell, after whom it is named, MTSIFA has three departments: Fine Art; Industrial Arts and Applied Design; and Visual Communication Design and Multimedia. It is a close-knit community of faculty, students, and professionals that serves largely as an arts conservatory and center of excellence in the arts for the East African region. MTSIFA currently offers programs in fine art and industrial design at Bachelors, Masters and PhD level.

College of Veterinary Medicine, Animal Resources and Bio-Security (COVAB)
The college of Veterinary Medicine, Animal Resources and Bio- Security is an academic, research and education pillar in the animal and associated industries. COVAB primary aim was to produce quality veterinary degree graduates to serve in the state sponsored veterinary departments across the country. COVAB was established in 1922 as a technical certificate training unit of Makerere College that was later upgraded to veterinary diploma training department in 1949 under British colonial rule.
From 1953, the department offered a Veterinary degree of the University of London until 1963 when it reverted to the University of East Africa.
The Makerere University Act of 1970 established it as a legal entity that became the Makerere University School of Veterinary Medicine in 1971.

With globalization and alterations in macro-economic policies, the public craves for universities that can equip its graduates with competences that can transform youthful minds into entrepreneurial and useful citizens that are responsive to the demands for poverty eradication and creation of sustainable livelihoods in the country. Abd it such graduates that COVAB produces.

As a result COVAB envisions her purpose as to capacitate people and empower communities while fostering sustainable development through impact-oriented research, training and offering services in animal and related agricultural, biomedical and wildlife tourism industries. Over the years, COVAB has shifted from being a mono-degree institution, offering the state sponsored classical Bachelor of Veterinary Medicine degree, to a multi-degree and multifunction service institution offering diverse demand driven undergraduate and graduate training programs, research and development outreach services.

School of Law
Since its establishment in 1968, the School of Law has sought to provide quality education in study of Law and Legal Sciences, and to promote the development of a well-rounded scholar and advocate. Over the thirty years of its existence, the School has expanded tremendously. While the fast graduating class (1968-71) was made up of 17 male students and 6 women, the school in this day and age usually admits over 300 students every year, the majority of which are female students. And whereas the School opened with only 6 teachers, in this day and age, the school boasts of a teaching staff of over thirty distinguished scholars.

All of them are Ugandan academics who have distinguished themselves in their respective disciplines. Commencing as a department in the School of Social Sciences, today the School is divided into four departments, viz., Law & Jurisprudence, Commercial Law, Public and Comparative Law and the Human Rights & Peace Centre (HURIPEC). The education offered by the School today is extremely diverse. Not only is the regular (day) program growing from strength to strength, but in 1993 the School pioneered the introduction of Evening classes – a practice that was quickly emulated throughout the university campus- Postgraduate degrees are currently offered at the Masters (LLM) and Doctorate (LL-D) level, and both are attracting a considerable clientele.

The School of Law is poised to enter the 21st Century as a trail-blazer in the arena of legal teaching scholarship and practice, providing personnel for traditional law practice, non-governmental service, international diplomacy and academia. Not only has it strengthened the traditional areas of teaching such as Legal methods, Land law and Civil Procedure, but it is introducing new areas that meet the challenges of the new millennium, such as Legal informatics, Gender and the Law, and Clinical Legal Education.

All these developments have projected the School back into the international arena, drawing student applications from within the Greater Eastern Africa region, and even stretching beyond. At the undergraduate level, the School of Law offers a 4-year undergraduate Bachelor of Laws (LLB.) degree. This course is conducted simultaneously in the Full-time Day program and Evening Program. Each of the two is specially suited for a different class of student, the latter being tailored to professionals who want to deepen their knowledge of law or are called to the legal profession later in life and is exclusively available to self-sponsored students.

The extension of the course to four years was intended to both broaden and deepen the students’ grasp of legal concepts and their relationship to other disciplines. It also gives a much wider choice of subjects, particularly in the final year of study. At the graduate level, the School of Law offers a 2-year Master of Laws (LL.M) degree and the Doctor of Laws (LL.D.). At the Master’s level, there is no specialization but the student has the choice to tailor his/her academic and professional needs according to their interests.

The Doctor of Laws generally follows the Doctor of Philosophy structure and is similar in academic rigor.

The Human Rights and Peace Center (HURIPEC)
The Human Rights and Peace Center (HURIPEC ) was established under the Faculty of Law in Makerere University in 1993, as the first human rights center of its kind in in Sub-saharan Africa. Although several human rights-related subjects were already being taught at the Faculty of Law, HURIPEC was established solely to foster on teaching, research and activism on human rights and peace issues at the University. Since that time, not only has the number of subjects in the area expanded considerably, but so to have the range of activities being pursued.

HURIPEC represented a Makerere University’s response to a sustained period of gross human rights violations in Uganda. The principal perpetrators of human rights violations against the population have been the state and rebel groups however, increasingly, non-state actors, ranging from the family to corporate entities have been responsible for perpetrating various human rights abuses. Cross-boarder incursions and was complicated and deepened further Uganda’s human rights situation. Far- reaching consequences have included acute decline in economic production, the decay in economic infrastructure and the cllapse of the state and political institutions.

By far the gravest consequences of sustained gross human rights violations is probably the collapse or emasculation of civil society and the widespread feeling of helplessness among large sections of the people.
