At that moment, Mr. Yonas Mitiku, Deputy Scientific Director of BiT and Assistant professor of Mechanical Engineering, stated that the institute is working hard to support the GTP plan of the country. In this regard, besides the normal teaching-learning process, we try to reach to the community in various research and community service activities. Hence, we believe this program will assist the station workers in particular and EEPCo in general to strength the fundamental knowledge on Electrical Engineering. In addition, the program will assist our institute to get practical knowledge from the industry. For this, we try to fulfill the required demands for the program based our capacity. We hope, we will continue such effort for other disciplines.
