    Projects & Students

    • Ongoing projects
      • PPE Project 

        In poor countries like Senegal, educational systems suffer from the lack of means to guide students in making good choices about the right educational programs to follow according to their targeted future professional job. The goal of this project, called PPE for "platforme pédagogique d'orientation" in french, is to fill this gap by proposing a platform able to recommend educational programs and professional career to under graduated and graduated students. This project is made in the spirit of improving the educational system in Senegal based on information technologies. 

      • OMR Project

        In Senegal the access of health facilities is a big issue for people because of the lack of enough human and material resources in health domain. In addition, there is a lack of enough information and statistics about the distribution of the diseases per regions, populations, age, etc. so that the existing medical infrastructures are not properly distributed in the country. Also, the government does not really know what kind of specific medical human resources the country needs according to the most prominent diseases. The goal of this project is to propose  "un Observatoire de la Medecine" (An Observatory for Medical Domain) that will provide enough medical information and statistics about population medical situations in Senegal.
