In Ethiopia, the first Materials Engineering Department was inaugurated at Adama Science and Technology University in 2013. The department, pursuing world-class excellence both in teaching and research, will strongly contribute to Materials Science, Technology and Innovation (STI)-led industrialisation in Ethiopia. To this end, Korea's Pohang University of Science and Technology, and Techno Peace Corps have served as our global partners through Official Development Assistance (ODA) supported by the National Research Foundation of Korea, an approach which is in line with the United Nation's Millennium Development Goals. Overall, the STI-ODA is considered to be an effective strategy for sustainable development in sub-Saharan Africa.
