On the 15th of November, 2022, the School of Technology and the Center for Teaching and Learning Excellence (CTLE) held a 1-day competency-enhancement workshop at the Kenya School of Monetary Studies in Nairobi as part of the Kenya Norway Mobility (KeNoMo) project activities.

The training comprised a series of tutorials and demonstrations on discrete event modelling delivered by Prof. Reggie Davidrajuh, a renowned professor of Informatics at the University of Stavanger (UiS) in Norway.

It is expected that the workshop will trigger research interest on discrete event modeling using petri nets among faculty members.
