Professional Profile
Lwanga Herbert
Global Chair of the IEEE Humanitarian
Technologies Board (HTB)
Lwanga Herbert is a technology promoter, innovator,
researcher, entrepreneur, and enthusiast best known for
promoting technology, innovation, and entrepreneurship
for the benefit of communities and society as a whole.
Additionally, he puts his emphasis on promoting those
technologies that address humanitarian challenges
that prevail with diverse communities and the world at
large. Lwanga Herbert currently serves as chair of the
IEEE Humanitarian Technologies Board (HTB), which
focuses on supporting impactful and ethically informed
volunteer-led initiatives, programs, and projects, and
mutually beneficial partnerships, as well as inform policy
formulation that harnesses technology and innovation
to address societal challenges in a responsive, effective,
and sustainable way. Previously (2021 - 2022) he
served as Global Chairman of IEEE SIGHT, where he
managed a combination of sustainable development
programs on a global scale. He is also a co-founder of
the Logel Science Foundation, a non-profit organization
that focuses on conducting research, development,
and innovation activities whose end results are aimed
at benefiting humanity. The organization also uplifts
the efforts of upcoming innovators and technologists
to ensure that they transform communities through
concrete engineering and technology approaches.
In his career development, he also co-founded LOG`EL
GROUP Ltd., a technology company that emphasizes the
use of local talent to develop technology solutions that
address locally-based challenges and concerns. Through
this approach, local talent is bound to grow and develop
as it addresses societal challenges using a home-grown
approach. Previously, he has won multiple awards,
including the 2005 Ugandan Presidential Innovation
Award which focused on rewarding young innovators.
THE BRIDGE
Lwanga chose to study engineering out of a childhood
desire to create things that are useful and make life
easier for the people in his community. He derives
satisfaction from responding to life's challenges and
creating solutions to make life better. He finds that
engineering challenges his thinking and creativity,
through which he is able to create unique and exciting
solutions to prevailing challenges within society. Over
the course of his engineering career, he has experienced
the transition from analog to digital, which has made
engineering products significantly more accurate and
efficient, and the shift from manual to automated
processes. Looking towards the future, Lwanga believes
that we are heading in the direction where humanity
will have access to engineering solutions that are more
efficient, accurate, and human-centered, making life
more predictable and controllable.
The most important lesson Lwanga has learned as an
engineer is that engineering is valuable and useful when
it is applied to create solutions that reduce challenges
faced by humanity. By applying his engineering skills
with that motivation, he can and has contributed to
improving the comfort and satisfaction of humanity.
His best advice to recent graduates is to cultivate and
develop broad-based thinking that focuses on humanity
as an overarching factor in driving the development
process. Such a holistic approach will enable graduates
to function effectively as they utilize the key resources
to advance their engineering professions. He believes
the greatest opportunities for IEEE-HKN over the next
three years are: (1) mentoring and inspiring young
engineering professionals to advance and consolidate
their engineering careers; (2) volunteering to give back
to the community; and (3) promoting IEEE-HKN activities
within the wider IEEE space and society in general.
