Some of these promising innovations under incubation in the University include;

  1. The Voice of Mau – a voiceless radio station
  2. The Jenga Customer – a platform for monitoring and innovatively luring customers using e-payment methods
  3. The axial weight load monitoring device – a gadget to monitor weight of automobiles
  4. The SATS programme – a platform to remotely regulate infrastructure weight
  5. The tujot programme – a platform to regulate sharing of educational materials

i. HRSuite

A holistic human resource platform with several human resource compartments under a single program. The innovation is fully secure and ready to deploy to assist in automated, smooth and transparent running of organizations – right from job advertisement, shortlisting, recruitment, monitoring and evaluation, preventing ghost-workers, payroll monitoring, employees benefits etc.

ii. DIGIFiles

An automated platform that provide an option of uploading files systematically, dictate who can access those files, how and who can update them, how the files can be retrieved or reproduced and also the legal framework for handling such documents. In organizations that employees continuously go for leaves, take loans, have renewal of contracts, change job groups, get promote and get trainings among others then this application is timely. All this can be easily stored in soft copy for easier referral when the need arises.

iii. A& V Technologies

This invention seeks to replace use of mobile money in payment of bills by radicalizing all other forms of money (such as airtime) in payment of other bills. This will enhance online payments while minimizing the charges and huddles faced by ensuring clients have mobile money for settling bills.

COMMERCIALIZED INNOVATIONS

Briquette fuels

In the spirit of promoting clean energies to mitigate against environmental pollution and climate changes, the Directorate has continuously produced biogas and briquette fuels from waste biomass materials in the University. This has significantly contributed to prudent cleaning of the University compound. While briquette production reduced use of firewood and charcoal in the University by 100%, the recently renovated biogas unit aims at reducing use of LPG by 25% within the third quarter of 2021/22 FY.

Industrial Sanitation Products

the covid-19 era, the Directorate has responded by preparing several sanitation products thus saving The University on money and time used in procuring these products. The products include; Hand sanitizers, Hand wash solutions, Broad spectrum detergents, Surface deoderants, Man-hole descalors and Fumigants. Sanitation products prepared by The Directorate of Research and Innovation meant to mitigate covid-19 i.e (a) broad spectrum detergent, (b) descalors, (c) hand sanitizer, (d) surface deoderants and (e) hand wash detergents
