AIR Student Exchange Program Opens the Door

for a Student to Start a PhD Cooperation

Kealeboga Radiposo, student at Botswana University of Science & Technology (BIUST) in Palapye, took part at the student exchange program of the AIR project in November 2016.

Mr. Radiposo stayed at our partner university Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University (NMMU) in Port Elizabeth, South Africa, for a total of 10 days where he gathered valuable experiences in the field of Renewable Energies which helped him for his further studies. Thereby, he took part at a Wind Energy course including a visit to the 27 MW Metrowind Wind Farm where he learned more about the operation, composition and costs of such installations.

As he established good contacts both at NMMU and the Renewable Energy Industry in Port Elizabeth he is now in communications with our partner university to continue with his PhD program there.

This shows that the AIR student exchange program enabled this kind of collaboration and created a great opportunity for the Botswanan student and hopefully likewise for further African students in the near future.
