About the Website

Welcome to Ethiopian Society of Electrical Engineers website.

Ethiopian Society of Electrical Engineers, ESEE for short, is an organization that supports and facilitates all electrical engineering related professions and researchs in Ethiopia. Comprised of professionals and students in the field, it organizes workshops, seminars and exhibitions to create awareness and give public advice. On top of that ESEE is responsible for managing the STEM Center (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics Center) located in Addis Ababa.

The Society is established in 1998 with a group of dedicated engineers promoted the idea of establishing a professional society and realized their ambition. Past presidents, in order of their service period, include Dr. Tesfaye Bayou, Dr. Fekadu Shewarega, Dr. Assefa Gebreselassie, Eng. Kassa Woldesenbet, and Eng. Amare Mergia, who have contributed a lot to the present status of the ESEE.

Its name at establishment was Society of Ethiopian Electrical Engineers (SEEE) but later was changed to the current name, Ethiopian Society of Electrical Engineers (ESEE) to match the amharic version and also to refine it for better meaning .

At times there were arguments on whether the term Electrical in the name of the Society includes Electronic, Computer, Communication, Control, Instrumentation,...etc. Based on the historical development of electrical engineering as the mother of all specialties in the field, it is understood and accepted that all the sub disciplines are also active parts of the ESEE until the need for separate branches is felt.

The world is changing; the multiple issues that we face in the 21st Century invariably revolve around STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) related issues. Resolving these issues will require enhanced STEM research, but also a STEM-educated workforce and a STEM knowledgeable citizenry, both which in turn require significant improvements in STEM education (before college, at college and across the lifespan). By understanding the above Mr, MARK .. generously leads, innovated and donated the STEM Center.

Equally, the Tigray Development Association (TDA) had played a vital role in the establishment of the STEM Center. The former president and Vice Preident of the Society namely Dr. Frehiwot W/Hanna and Dr. Colonel Alemayehu G/Egziabher are also mentionable personal in the establishment of the STEM Center.
