Dr. Simon Obenofunde
Asst Professor of Computer Science
Before joining LCU, I served as a visiting assistant professor of computer science in the University of Burgundy, Dijon France, after serving in a similar capacity in the University of Paris 8, Saint Denis, France in the 2019/2020 academic year. Until March 2019, I was an assistant lecturer and Coordinator of Computer Engineering department in the University of Buea, Cameroon, a job I started in 2010. All-in-all my teachings have been centered on computer networking, computer systems (including programming), telecom and even on some electrical engineering courses like power systems and machines.
Prior to academics, I have held several management positions in several para-public corporations in Cameroon. Most notably, I was the Deputy Director of Projects and Investments in Rural Electrification Agency, Yaounde, Cameroon. I also manage the Soap Factory while working for Pamol Plantations Plc.
In addition, I had been quite active in business, haven established and ran many in communications and other sectors in Cameroon. Cable TV was first brought to the city of Kumba Cameroon by my humble self. “Campus Shuttle” in the University of Buea was my brainchild.
Socio-politically, I have created and headed so many social. I have been PTA (parent teacher association) chairman in various schools in Cameroon. In the 2007-2013 political session, I was municipal councilor for Eyumojock Council representing the Abat constituency.
