Work Experience

Eng. Emanuel Rashayi is a registered Professional Engineer with Engineering Council of Zimbabwe. He is a Member of ZIE and IEEE (USA). He graduated with a first class Bsc (Hons) in Electrical Engineering in 1999 at the University of Zimbabwe. Briefly worked for South Wales Electric Pvt Ltd in Design and Development of Power and Distribution Transformers before joining the University of Zimbabwe in 2001. He did his MPhil in Electrical Engineering at the University of Zimbabwe. His research studies for MPhil looked at Simulation and Optimisation of grid connected Photovoltaic Systems in Zimbabwe. Currently a Lecturer in Electrical Engineering. Courses taught include Microcontroller Fundamentals, Computer Engineering & Computer Networks, Power Electronics, and Control Systems. A versatile Academic, Lecturer and Trainer. Has received extensive training in Internet Technologies at Cisco Headquarters in San Jose, California, USA in 2006. This was under United States Telecommunications Training Institute initiative. Has worked with Cisco Systems Inc. in conjunction with UNDP, UNIFEM, USAID and ITU in providing ICT education with emphasis on hands-on skills in Universities in Zambia and Zimbabwe.

He is a moderator for the several courses at the Polytechnic of Namibia including Microcontroller Applications at BTech and BEng level. Is very much involved in review of publications in his field.

He is the current chairman of the UZ/ZIE paperettee Competition committee, vice-chairman of the Faculty Research committee, Faculty representative on the UZ consultancy committee, alternate member of the UZ computer committee, member of the Faculty Accreditation committee.

His Research interests include Renewable Energy Technologies, Modelling and Simulation of Systems, Computer Networks and Embedded Systems. Current Research being sponsored by ZERA include “A study of Solar Water Heaters for Zimbabwe: Demand-side Management, GHG-emission abatement, Consumer Economics and Rolling-out” and “Assessment of Potential of Roof Integrated PV systems in Zimbabwe”
