Mr. Tumuhairwe Kirabo Timothy
Mr. Tumuhairwe joined our institute as a practical instructor in May, 2019.
Mr. Tumuhairwe has earned his Bachelor's in Agro-Processing Engineering from Busitema University. Additionally, he holds certificates in welding and metal fabrication from Kazo Technical School. Further, he achieved internationally recognized welding certificates from Engineering Construction and Industry Training Board at the Solid Rock Life and Business institute.
Mr. Tumuhairwe has a passion for teaching and enjoys the challenge of instruction by means of practical learning activities. As any good practical teacher does, he makes confusing theory understandable with well chosen practical exercises. Mr. Tumuhairwe has both knowledge and practical skill in many different welding processes including Shielded Metal Arc Welding, Gas Metal Arc Welding, Oxyacetylene Welding and Cutting, Oxyacetylene Brazing, Gas Tungsten Arc Welding and General Fabrication. Because of his mastery in these areas, he can both demonstrate and explain all aspects of the curriculum to his students.
In conjunction with a colleague, Mr. Tumuhairwe formed his own welding and metal fabrication business in 2019. Their company performs all kinds of welding but specializes in fabricating prototypes for clients. This gives him valuable real-life experience that he can refer to while teaching. Being a full-time instructor and a business owner on the side are not easy, but Mr. Tumuhairwe works hard.
Finally, Mr. Tumuhairwe guiding educational philosophy comes from Mikhail Kalashnikov, “Things that are complex are not useful. Things that are useful are simple.” There are very many complex things about the science of welding but Mr. Timothy makes them both simple and useful for his students.
