Transforming Africa through better solar cell efficiency
As the world grapples with the challenges of energy demand and a changing climate, we are committed to enabling Africa’s youth to shape the continent’s future through Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics education.
We are training the next generation of leaders in science and innovation.
One such leader is Dr. Hind Ahmed, PhD. She graduated AIMS South Africa in 2006 with a Master’s degree. Hind completed subsequent graduate degrees in Micro/Nano Electromechanical Systems and a doctorate in solar energy from the Dublin Institute of Technology where she developed new methods of solar cell efficiency.
“If not for AIMS, I wouldn’t have achieved all of this,” she says. “The solution to Africa’s challenges lies with Africans themselves.”
Hind’s goal is to succeed so other young girls can have a role model to strive to emulate.
At AIMS our students and alumni are our greatest indicators of success. We are proud to have produced 1,222 graduates, one-third of whom are women. Our alumni hail from 42 African nations, and are fast becoming leaders in academia and industry across Africa and around the globe.
Our remarkable success rate will continue with your support. There are thousands of deserving students with incredible drive to solve challenges who have some of the most remarkable stories, but they need you to help them realize their dreams.
