EO Graduate students’ tuition fees Directive

Written by Ermyas Aklilu on .

Entoto Observatory and Research Center (EO) Graduate students’ tuition fees Directive:

It is necessary to set up tuition fee regulation for the observatory. Thus, Entoto Observatory and Research Center (EO) sets two different rates of tuition fees for each individual master and doctorate degree programme of study.

Studying the stars and the galaxies will be vital for this Horn of Africa nation's development and will hopefully also go a long way to developing brotherly love, say scientists who are part of the project.

Space technology is often considered a luxury only for developed countries," Solomon Belay, director of the Entoto Observatory and Research Centre, tells IPS. "But it's actually a basic and vital need for development."
