On behalf of the Mekelle Institute of Technology – Mekelle University (MIT-MU) community, I am so pleased to welcome you all to the 2018/19 academic year. We are happy to have you with us on campus, and we appreciate all the intellectual and creative vitality you bring with you.
MIT has built an outstanding reputation in producing professionals who can invent and innovate, apply research, and build their own careers, thus contribute towards the development of Ethiopia and the transformation of Ethiopians to a self-reliant and vibrant society. As students, you are the most important part of our community of scholars, and we value your contributions and participation. You are the key players in realizing MIT’s Center of Excellence in Science, Technology and Engineering.
As our returning students already know, learning at MIT extends far beyond our classrooms, laboratories, and libraries. You also learn a great deal from each other. We encourage you, our students and all members of our academic community, to be full participants in the free and open exchange of ideas and viewpoints, and hard work that characterize our Institute. We commit ourselves to upholding the values we cherish as an academic institution, and to fostering an atmosphere that is respectful, supportive, and welcoming to all.
There are countless ways for you to get involved and make connections and peace with each other, such as through research and creative projects, student government, campus organizations, intergroup sports, volunteer work in our community, and much more. I encourage you to take advantage of all that MIT has to offer during your time here.
Again, I welcome you to campus and look forward to meeting you. I hope your time in the campus will be exciting, challenging you in new and different ways. Your academic success is our top priority – study hard and enjoy your MIT experience. Have a terrific year!
Peace and Prosperity for All Ethiopians!
Meles G/yesus, Dean
