Puntland Technical University brings together researchers from across the university and facilitates collaborations with industry and government. The university supports hundreds of research projects across the Institute, including those awarded through the European Union for innovative early-stage energy research projects.
The university research department was established to address energy and environmental issues through training and research. The department focuses on training and research in energy resources, generation, utilization and conversion technologies. We recognize that energy is a dominant development component for any nation or community.
