School of Pre-engineering and Sciences

A Brief Profile of the School of Pre-engineering and Sciences

The School of Pre-Engineering and Sciences at the Ethiopian Institute of Textile and Fashion Technology (EiTEX), Bahir Dar University, is a dynamic academic unit committed to excellence in education, research, community service and innovation. Established in September 2023, the school builds upon the legacy of the former Basic Engineering and Sciences research and innovation center (BES-RiC). The school has 32 highly qualified academic staff who teach different subjects, including Mechanical Engineering, Computer Science, Mathematics, English, and Social Sciences.

The school works on problem-solving through implementing applicable research and disseminates its outcomes to the scientific and academic community through publication, technology transfer and community-based activities that include training. Besides, the school undertakes joint research with the other faculties in the institute and also by delivering basic engineering and science, social science and statistical study courses concerning textile, garment and leather engineering programs.

To undertake effective research and teaching-learning process, the School of Pre-Engineering and Sciences is equipped with five laboratories, comprising two computer-based labs, two mechanical engineering labs, and an English Language Improvement Center, which are organized and managed based on the KAI ZEN principle, ensuring optimal functioning.

Aim

In line with the stated missions and vision of the institute, our aim is to provide high-quality education, foster interdisciplinary collaboration, and promote cutting-edge research in the fields of engineering, computer science, mathematics, English, and social sciences. We strive to equip
