The Energy Research Center (ERC) at the University of Khartoum is an interdisciplinary body that was established to help advance the frontiers of energy science and technology in Sudan and Africa.
It concentrates on crucial energy issues that are most pressing for the development of both rural and urban populations. Its interdisciplinary nature facilitates full utilization of the Faculty of Engineering's staff and laboratories.
The research programs handled by the ERC are manned by staff from different departments, as would be required by the interdisciplinary nature of the research. This constitutes a welcomed departure from conventional single department activities.
Energy, being the undisputed foundation for enhancement of human life, needs a sound scientific approach and a strong support structure. Specifying energy as a priority in different sectors helps establish a base for all the other fields for development.
