Dr. Kwame Awuah-Offei, associate professor of mining and nuclear engineering, was awarded a fellowship by the Carnegie African Diaspora Fellowship Program to travel to Ghana, West Africa, to work with the University of Mines and Technology (UMaT).
At UMaT, Awuah-Offei will work with Dr. Victor Temeng, associate professor of mining engineering, on a project named “Initiating Enhanced Collaboration in Mining Engineering Research through Curriculum Development and Graduate Student Training and Mentoring.” Awuah-Offei will present seminars, assist with revising graduate courses on simulation and optimization, mentor graduate students and teach a course for graduate students during his visit.
The UMaT project is one of 69 projects that will pair African Diaspora scholars with higher education institutions in Africa to collaborate on curriculum co-development, research, graduate teaching, training and mentoring activities. Awuah-Offei is one of 70 African Diaspora scholars awarded fellowships to travel to Africa beginning in December 2016 to conduct projects.
