Ucad - Les cours interrompus, les étudiants exigent la libération de leurs collègues
A university student chants a slogan during a protest against higher enrolment fees at Cheikh Anta Diop University, in Dakar April 9, 2013. Despite increasingly high demand in Africa for skills in manufacturing, engineering, agriculture, retail and hospitality, graduates in these fields were scarce. Once the top institution in West Africa, Cheikh Anta Diop University is slowly introducing reforms despite a lack of financial resources and crippling strikes by students and lecturers over poor working conditions, often ending in clashes with police. It launched a civil engineering course this year, partnering with firms such as France's Eiffage, the curriculum structured jointly by company executives and lecturers. But Saliou Ndiaye, rector of Cheikh Anta Diop University, said applying the reforms across the sprawling university will take time, with 65,500 students crowded into facilities built for just 5,000.
