    Call for Your Reflection

    Mekelle Institute of Technology(MIT) is a young Science and Technology Institute in Mekelle (opened in November 2002). It has made impressive progress in producing professionals in critical fields of information communications engineering and technology. Currently, the Institute is making preparations to launch graduate MBA program as of October 2011.
