Engineering design and mathematical modelling are key tools/techniques in the Science, Technology and Innovation spheres. Whilst engineering design is concerned with the creation of functional innovative products and processes, mathematical modelling seeks to utilize mathematical principles and concepts to describe and control real world phenomena. Both of these can be useful tools for spurring and hastening development in developing countries. They are also areas where Africa needs to ‘skill-up’ in order to build her technological base. This special issue of the African Journal of Science, Technology, Innovation and Development (AJSTID) contains 13 original articles that cover relevant research trends in the fields of both engineering design and mathematical modelling. These articles can be broadly classified into status of engineering design in African nations (3 papers) and applications of mathematical modelling in the following areas: emissions modelling (1 paper), education (1 paper), urban city dynamics (2 papers), finance (1 paper) and energy (5 papers).
