Masinde Muliro University of Science and Technology has today, 20th December, 2022, received a donation of Trans-African Hydro-Meteorological Observatory (TAHMO) from Prof. Nick Van De Giesen of Delft University of Technology, which is based in the Netherlands. The equipment worth three hundred and eighty one thousand, seven hundred and sixty five shillings (Kshs. 381,765), is a token of appreciation to MMUST from Prof. Nick Van De Giesen who is a co-supervisor of Mr. Rens Ampting, together with Dr. Veronica Kiluva, a senior lecturer in the School of Disaster Management and Humanitarian Assistance.

Mr. Ampting is a visiting student from Delft University of Technology, currently hosted at MMUST under the supervision of Dr. Kiluva as he collects and analyzes data for his research.

TAHMO will be beneficial in research activities on climate change for our students pursuing both the undergraduate and postgraduate degree programmes in Disaster Preparedness and Engineering Management. Additionally, the equipment will also enable the colleges and secondary schools visiting the University to learn aspects of hydro-meteorology.

It is worth noting that MMUST is developing an MoU with TAHMO, an initiative aimed at rolling out a network of 20,000 affordable weather stations in Sub Saharan Africa.
