The Software Incubation and Innovations Unit aims at grooming the next generation of programmers that will empower and drive Uganda’s software industry.We do this through practical code labs, workshops and bootcamps.
According to the National Business Incubation Association, 3 out of 5 new business start-ups fail within their first 5 years. However, 4 out of 5 new businesses that start in an incubator program succeed within 5 years.
We empower students with cutting edge thinking, practices and technologies with tried and tested approaches to give their future clients an edge.
The Software Incubation and Innovations Unit builds software systems for Mbarara University of Science and Technology. Some of the successful software systems that have been developed include: the Student Academic Records Management System (SARMS) and the University Central Timetabling System.
