About Gondor University

The University of Gondar is one of the oldest universities in Ethiopia. Established in 1954 as a Public Health College and Training campus Center, the University has steadily grown and evolved into one of the top education institutions in the country today.

The Gondar School of Science and Technology (GSST) is the evolution of a series of Successful Schools inspired by Astronomy and Space Science. Though GSST’s primary objective is to provide a platform (for students, teachers and scientists) for presenting and  disseminating  their  research  works  and  findings,  and  exchanging  ideas  on current  development  in  science  and  technology,  it  is  also  used  as  stage  for promoting STEM education and other activities like Life Skills Training and All Inclusive Education. The School is hosted and sponsored annually by the University of Gondar since 2010.   Previous  and  current  potential  sponsors  include  North  Carolina Agricultural  and  Technical  State  University,  Ethiopian  Ministry  of  Science  and Technology,  Ethiopian  Space  Science  Society  (ESSS)  and  Ethiopian  Scientific  and Academic Network (ESAN).
