New $25m Science College Building Inaugurated


In line with a 2014 agreement that was reached between the Governments of Eritrea and the PRC, Chinese Civil Engineering Construction Corporation (CCECC) has completed the construction of the 3-storey Science College building complex and handed over to the Ministry of Education.

The construction that was underway on a 37,979 sq. meters area within the premises of the Eritrean Institute of Technology (EIT) took 30 months and USD $25 million to complete.

The building includes administrative and staff rooms, laboratories, lecture and meeting halls, class rooms as well as other educational facilities.

The Eritrean Institute of Technology (EIT) consists of three colleges, namely the College of Science, College of Engineering and College of Education.

The new College of Science building is, therefore, expected to offer services to 6,000 students and it has full infrastructural capacity to embrace the Colleges of Engineering and Education within its premises.

During the handover ceremony, Chinese Ambassador to Eritrea announced that the People’s Republic of China will continue to fully fund the construction of similar new building complexes for the College of Engineering and College of Education.

The Eritrean Institute of Technology (EIT) is the leading higher educational institution in Eritrea offering University level programs since its inception in 2004.

The successful expansion of the new College of Science is part and parcel of the overall endeavors being made to provide wider access to higher education. Similar plans have been mapped out to upgrade the remaining six colleges of higher education in the country.

Last week, the Hamelmalo Agricultural College inaugurated a new $5 million dollar modern laboratory.
