The challenges facing engineering in the Lusophone world will be under discussion for the first time in a single event, starting today in Maputo, the organisation announced.
The Mozambican capital receives until Friday the 8th Luso-Mozambican Congress and the 5th Engineering Congress of Mozambique, an event that will bring together Mozambican and Portuguese professionals.
“For the first time, we will discuss the engineering challenges in the Portuguese-speaking Community (CPLP) universe in Maputo,” Ibraimo Remane, a member of the Order of Engineers of Mozambique, told Lusa.
Among the themes that make up the program are “The Teaching of Engineering and of Information Technologies” and the construction of “Public Works and Transport Infrastructure,” as well as “Works of Urban Regeneration” and “Housing in Informal Areas”.
Ibraimo Remane said that, in addition to creating a platform for dialogue, the congress will serve as a tool to strengthen the partnership between Portugal and Mozambique, and recalled that the last memorandum in the area between the two countries was signed in 2004.
“It will be a way of strengthening the cooperation protocol,” stressed the Remane, who points out cooperation in the field of education as one of the issues that most concern the Order of Engineers of Mozambique.
“Our goal is to raise the quality level of students and this involves cooperation with other countries and the relationship with the universities in the country, especially private usitiesniver,” concluded the official.
In total, the Mozambican Order has 2,654 registered engineers.
The event, which will last four days, is being organised by the orders of engineers from Portugal and Mozambique, Faculty of Engineering of the University of Porto and Faculty of Engineering of Eduardo Mondlane University in Maputo.
In addition to the opening session scheduled for today there will be a solemn session on Wednesday with the presence of the Mozambican head of state, Filipe Nyusi.Source: Lusa
