While our students work hard in the classroom, they have plenty of time to get involved in student clubs and extracurricular activities. Clubs bring students together to share topics of mutual interest. These clubs often supplement coursework through engaging in social events and guest lectures.

Data Science Club
There are lots of potential innovations, insights and brilliant solutions to tackle some of Africa’s most challenging problems that are hidden in structured and unstructured data. Would you like to position yourself in a club that can prepare you to take up the challenge? Would you like to learn or even teach how to clean data, draw insight from data and build predictive models using machine learning and deep learning techniques? We have a strategic partnership with our surrounding community and industry to accomplish this goal. We partner with AI Saturdays Kigali to train people in our community and Zindi Africa for their platform. We’ve recently organized a hackathon with sponsorship from Ingressive and IntelAI. We also have a good relationship with African Leadership University, African Masters in Machine Intelligence and African Institutes of Mathematical Science.
