I am currently Manager; Planning and Programming for the Uganda Road Fund. My main responsibilities include to manage the planning and reviewing of funds allocated to the various Local Governments and Roads Authorities in Uganda.

I believe my experience at ITS helped me in my present job/career because the study was quite demanding and challenging but overall life at Leeds University was good. The experience and knowledge gained was fundamental in helping me progress through my career.

I undertook undergraduate studies in the Civil Engineering Department at Leeds University so I got to know a lot about ITS as my tutor in the Civil Engineering department (Dr. Miles Tight) also lectured at ITS.

If I were to give any advice to students interested in this course it would be to just go for it – it will be worth it in the long term…
