I joined the University  of Botswana in 2009 after completion of my Masters Degree. Prior to that i had been working as a Design and Technology teacher in a government school.My desire for this field stems from the intrigue by designed products that i had from a young age. this made me to set  out to seek "how do they do that". I have been engaged with the field of product Design from middle school as a student of Design and Technology to today as an Industrial Design lecturer.  I keep my skills honed by interacting with both electrical amd mechanical products.
