The International Conference on Advances in Engineering and Technology (AET2006) was a monumental event in the engineering and scientific fraternity not only from the African continent but also from the larger world, both technologically advanced and still developing. The Conference succeeded in bringing together to Uganda, affectionately called "The Pearl of Africa", scores of some of the world-famous scientists and engineers to share knowledge on recent advances in engineering and technology for the common good of humanity in a world that is no more than a global village.
These Proceedings are a compilation of quality papers that were presented at the AET2006 Conference held in Entebbe, Uganda, from 16 th to 19 th July, 2006. The papers cover a range of fields, representing a diversity of technological advances that have been registered in the last few decades of human civilization and development. The general areas covered range from advances in construction and industrial materials and methods to manufacturing processes; from advances in architectural concepts to energy efficient systems; from advances in geographical information systems to telecommunications, to mention but a few. The presentations are undoubtedly a pointer to more such advances that will continue to unfold in the coming years and decades to meet the ever growing demands and challenges of human survival in the face of diminishing natural resources for an ever-increasing population. The timing of the Conference could not have been more appropriate: it is at the time when most of Africa is facing an unprecedented energy crisis engendered by a combination of factors, namely drought (resulting in the recession of water reservoir levels), accelerated industrialization that outstrips available power generation, inadequate planning, poor economies, etc. We think the AET2006 Conference has presented practical ideas for solving this and many other problems that face the peoples of Africa and other continents.
The editors of the Proceedings, on behalf of the AET2006 Conference Organising Committee, extend their thanks to the authors for accepting to share their knowledge in these Proceedings. All the experts who peer-reviewed the papers are most thanked for ensuring that quality material was published. The guidance given by the members of the International Scientific Advisory Board is greatly acknowledged. The Sponsoring Organisations are most sincerely thanked for making it possible for the Conference and its Proceedings to be realized. The staff of the Faculty of Technology, Makerere University, and particularly the Dean, Dr. Barnabas Nawangwe, is given special thanks for providing an environment that was conducive for the smooth accomplishment of the editorial work. Finally, the editors thank their families for the cooperation and support extended to them.
