PIC: Chimono during the presentation
University of Malawi, the Polytechnic, congratulates Chimwemwe Chimono, an assistant lecturer in the Electrical Engineering Department who successfully defended his thesis towards the Master of Philosophy in Engineering on 12th February 2021.

Speaking after the presentation, an excited Chimono explained that the research was generated on the decision-making support tool that enables site visualization, data analysis for sites which are inaccessible and whose relevant data is missing.

“I am overjoyed to have completed the study which gave me an opportunity to evaluate myself in terms of weaknesses and strengths, hence gave me a wonderful platform for personal growth.  The most challenging part was when I had to rework the project plan as the research objectives articulated in the proposal were modified and also the COVID 19 pandemic disrupted many scheduled meetings which were crucial to the completion of the study,” said Chimono.

Chimono acknowledges his supervisors Engineers Dr. Gregory Gamula and Dr. Suzgo Kaunda for the support and guidance in completing the thesis.

In addition, he also appreciates Charles Kapachika from the Department of Land Surveying with his invaluable lessons in GIS which went a long way in making the study a success.
