Dr P Manyere is currently with University of Zimbabwe as a senior lecturer in the Electrical and Electronic Engineering, and Aeronautical  and Avionics Engineering Departments. He has been with the university since 2009. He teaches a wide range of Electrical and Electronic topics including Electrical Principles, Advanced Electrical Principles, Electromagnetics, Microwave Engineering, Analogue Electronics, Navigation Systems and Control Systems,. He is a member of the IEEE and has vast lecturing experience at other universities and colleges such as University of Johannesburg (B Tech), WUA (MIS), Namibia University of Science and Technology (NUST) which was former Polytechnic of Namibia (PON) (B Tech), SAST and STT (Staff Development AFZ). Dr P Manyere supervises BSc, B Tech and MSc student research. He has been an external research projects evaluator and examiner for Namibia University of Science and Technology since 2014 and WUA (MIS) in 2013.

Dr Manyere initially trained as an Aircraft Engineer (AFZ) in the field of Avionics (Aircraft Radio and Telecommunications) and qualified in 1993 as a Class 1 Journeyperson. He has therefore worked as an Aircraft Engineer, Engineering Manager, Training Officer, Research and Development Officer and Officer Commanding Engineering, Defence University Deputy Dean, with the Zimbabwe Defence Forces. Dr Manyere was instrumental in the establishment of the Aeronautical Engineering Department at University of Zimbabwe and was the inaugural chairperson of the same department in 2017. Dr Manyere has chaired the University of Zimbabwe’s Faculty of Engineering Quality Assurance Committee since 2017 and was also a member of the committee tasked to look into the establishment of the University of Zimbabwe Ethics Committee in 2018.

Dr Manyere was also very instrumental in the establishment of the Zimbabwe National Defence University (ZNDU) as a member of the University Council. A former Zimbabwe Defence College became a University in 2018. Dr Manyere played a key role to establish the Defence Engineering Faculty and the Aerospace Engineering Department at the Zimbabwe National Defence University (ZNDU) in 2018.

Dr Manyere has sat on a number Boards, among them, the Zimbabwe National Manpower Development Advisory Council (NAMACO), the National Strategic Research and Development (NSRD), Johane Masowe Chishanu Apostles Trust (Dep Chairperson), Johane Masowe Chishanu Apostles International Relief and Development Foundation (JMCA IRDF) (Dep Chairperson), among others. Dr Manyere is also assisting Johane Masowe Chishanu Apostles Church with professional advice on a number of projects key among them, the establishment of Johane Masowe Chishanu Apostles Church University of Science, Technology and Innovation (JMCA USTI) in Songwe, Tanzania. The University is expected to open its doors to the public in 2025.

Fields of interest for research include Signal Processing with Simulations, Remote Sensing, Radar and Autonomous Vehicle Design.
