ECU is the first Catholic University in Ethiopia, located in the outskirts of Addis Ababa. The University counts over 300 students and offers five-years degree courses in medical laboratory technology and four-years degree courses in Social Work. During the past years, the University has enlarged its campus in order to provide also the schools of Engineering (5 Yrs) and Medicine, while a Perinatal Clinic is already operative in the campus. The medical school buildings will be completed in Fall 2020. The goal of the University is to shape the future leaders of Ethiopia through education, where students not only cultivate their skills, but also a sense of responsibility for equal and sustainable development in their country.
ECU is building an on campus cafeteria thanks to the support of Caritas Pro Vitae.
