To engineer a brighter future for Africa!

We focus on using engineering and technology to support communities in Africa through innovative initiatives, training, and collaborations, aiming for a positive and lasting impact on the continent's future.

A little bit about us

Engineer Africa stands as a prominent organization committed to advancing engineering practices, fostering innovation, and promoting development throughout the African continent. Our overarching mission revolves around empowering African engineers, strengthening engineering education and skills, encouraging technological progress, and addressing local challenges through innovative engineering solutions.

We firmly believe in the transformative potential of engineering to fuel sustainable development, spur economic growth, and drive social progress in Africa. Our dedication extends to constructing a resilient engineering ecosystem that nurtures talent, supports entrepreneurial endeavors, and facilitates collaboration among engineers, academia, industries, and governments.

Engineer Africa actively pursues its mission through various avenues, including knowledge sharing, capacity-building programs, mentorship, and networking opportunities. By focusing on diverse engineering domains such as civil engineering, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, software engineering, and more, we empower African engineers to serve as catalysts for positive change in their communities and the continent as a whole.

Our initiatives span critical areas like affordable housing, road development, flood prevention, and wireless mesh design. Through innovative engineering solutions, we aim to address pressing issues and contribute to a future where Africa emerges as a hub for technological advancements and engineering excellence.

In acknowledgment of the brain drain phenomenon, where African engineers migrate to the West, Engineer Africa actively engages the African diaspora as integral members of the global community of African engineers. This strategic approach seeks to enhance Africa's engineering capacity and drive the continent's overall development.

Established in December 2018, Engineer Africa operates as a nonprofit corporation and holds tax-exempt status as a public charity under section 501(c)(3) of the US Internal Revenue Code.


Engineer Africa envisions a future where African engineers, both within the continent and in the diaspora, come together as a global community, uniting their knowledge, skills, and experiences to empower Africa's engineering capacity. We strive to reverse the brain drain phenomenon by actively engaging the African diaspora, fostering collaboration, and creating opportunities for growth and impact. Through this collective effort, we envision a transformed African continent where engineering excellence thrives, innovative solutions address pressing challenges, and sustainable development propels economic prosperity and improved quality of life for all.


Our mission is to build a robust engineering ecosystem in Africa by engaging the African diaspora as a vital part of a global community of African engineers. We aim to harness their expertise, foster collaboration, and create a platform for knowledge exchange, innovation, and development. By providing opportunities for engagement, skill transfer, and investment, we strive to increase Africa's engineering capacity, tackle brain drain, and retain and attract talent. Through partnerships, capacity-building initiatives, and impactful projects, we are committed to driving sustainable development, economic growth, and social progress across the continent. Together, we Engineer Africa's transformation and forge a brighter future for all Africans.
