Press Release: Kabale University launches its Centre of Competence in Digital Education (C-CoDE)

To enhance the quality of digital learning and education at Kabale University, the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) in Switzerland and Université Mohammed VI Polytechnique in Morocco have funded the C-CoDE project. A total of six African C-CoDE centers were established as part of this project. Under this project, this is the only center established in Uganda.
