Opportunities:

Opportunities for graduate studies will be posted here when they are available.

However, students with 85% or above in their B.Sc. and M.Sc. are always encouraged to apply as there may be special opportunities for exceptionally talented students.

 Then Peter, filled with the Holy Spirit, said to them: “Rulers and elders of the people!  If we are being called to account today for an act of kindness shown to a man who was lame and are being asked how he was healed, then know this, you and all the people of Israel: It is by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified but whom God raised from the dead, that this man stands before you healed. Jesus is

“‘the stone you builders rejected,
    which has become the cornerstone.’

Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved.”


Acts 4:8-12

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Courses

teaching

I started my university teaching career as an assistant lecturer immediately after my graduation with B.Sc. degree in Mechanical Engineering from Addis Ababa University, Ethiopia in 1995. I have greatly enjoyed teaching undergraduate and graduate courses during my career. I taught more than 20 different courses (most of them multiple times) in two countries and three universities.

I am so passionate about my teaching and there is nothing that makes me feel proud more than seeing my students succeed in their professional career. Though, students successes are cumulative effects of the contributions of many extraordinary educators, parents and the students themselves, I will not take my part very lightly. In this endeavor, I am always committed to keep course materials current, relevant, simple, understandable and clear without losing the much needed theoretical depth for a university level teaching. I am also devoting sufficient time and efforts in identifying appropriate delivery methods for the courses that I am teaching to keep students interested, engaged, motivated and understand and eventually benefit from taking these courses. The following are list of courses that I taught in the past so many years.
