Ministry of Education has taken the initiative to begin two Postgraduate programs in Civil Engineering: Geo-technical and Structural Engineering video conferencing. The program is unique in nature as it is conducted through videoconferencing from Addis Ababa University and other national universities in Ethiopia.
One of the advantages of videoconferencing is that students attend classes from different locations at the same time. In addition to this, the lectures will be available on servers for future reference. Currently, as Jimma University is the only university which owns the recording and streaming systems and it is giving this service to students of all the universities in the country.
