The long-term objective is to contribute to poverty alleviation through training of cost management and control professionals for better and more rational use of resource within the construction industry in Uganda. Laboratory and computer training in the curriculum provide hand-on opportunities to apply knowledge to solving practical problems of engineering. There are also practical training components
