VOCATIONAL POLYTECHNICS

We focus on training of Africans especialy required for our commercial projects. The first program contains the training of new welders, blacksmiths, space roof constructioners, solar heater montagers-upkeepers, lathe operators and social based elementary courses. The courses are free of charge and held in member polytechnic schools or new ones at the destinations of our commercial projects. Each successful student obtain an internationally recognized certificate after courses.

GRADUATE TRAINING INITIATIVE [ GTI ]

Background

The Abdou Moumouni University of Niamey, Niger, with support from the government of Niger, has requested that a program be established to provide doctoral training for fifty (50) mathematicians and twenty five (25) computer scientists over a five year period.    The participating students are expected to have obtained a first class Masters of Science Degree under the French program.       The project is expected to commence in January of 2011. In response to this request, and in recognition of the dire need for a program such as this for all of Africa, Dr Hamet Seydi, of the Université Cheikh Anta Diop de Dakar, Senegal, Dr. Tepper L. Gill, of Howard University, USA and Dr. Gaetana Restuccia of the University of Messina, Italy have formed the USA-Europe-Africa Graduate Training Initiative in Mathematics and Computer Science (GTI).          The overall goal of the GTI is to plan, organize and establish programs that will allow for the effective and efficient provision of advanced graduate level training at strategic locations throughout the continent of Africa.

Organization

Dr.’s H. Seydi, T. Gill and G. Restuccia will co-direct the project under the umbrella of the African Mathematical Union with coordination by the Benjamin Banneker Mathematical Research Institute of Université Polytechnique de l'Ouest Africain of Dakar, Senegal. In addition, the program will have the support of an International Advisory Board, consisting of members from the respective universities, the mathematics and computer science profession and, official representatives from, American and European Mathematics and Computer Science Organizations.     The purpose of the Board is to review plans, suggest improvements and assist in securing post-doctoral positions for program graduates.    (Identification of Board Members is under way.)

Approach

The first year of the program for each location (center) will consist of ten students in mathematics and five  in  computer science. In the second and third  year, ten additional students in mathematics and five additional students in computer science   will be added. The program will require two years, including two summers for completion.         The first summer will consist of four courses, meeting six days a week for one and one-half hours.   Each class will have four days for lectures and two days for problems and discussion. The purpose of each course is to provide the post-masters training required for doctoral research. Student course plans will reflect their particular doctoral research interest. At the end of the summer, the first group of students will be assigned a series of papers and   special   topics   that  will   prepare   them  for   their  doctoral  examination. This  exam will be administered   at   the   beginning   of   the   following   summer   and   will   be   both   oral   and   written.   Its purpose   is   to   assure   that   the student has acquired a sufficient depth of understanding of the relevant theory and literature in order to successfully write a first class thesis. During the second summer, the students will participate in a series of research seminars led by a research supervisor.        In addition to active participation in the seminar of their research interest, students will be required to participate in at least two other seminars. Students will read selected research papers in preparation for identifying a research topic and preparing a research proposal by the end of the summer. The next nine months will be devoted to the writing of their doctoral thesis.

The students from the first year will also be required to lead the problem and discussion
section   (in   their   area   of   research interest) for the second group of program   participants. Upon completion   of   the   doctorate,   each   student   will   be   assisted   in obtaining a postdoctoral position abroad. The purpose is to help them deepen their  knowledge, strengthen their research competence and confidence and, broaden their contacts with the international community. Each year, the students will attend a special workshop at the Université Polytechnique de l'Ouest   Africain   de   Dakar,   Senegal. (We  expect that this workshop will be supported by the Ecole   Normale    Supérieure   de Paris  (France), the French Government and the Third World Academy of Sciences.)
