The Ethiopian Airlines started flights from Addis Ababa to Hawassa last 16 April 2016 and the Mojo – Hawassa highway similar to Addis Adama has been practically started. Huge Hotel and other settings are starting as well as becoming operational every now and then. In line with this Hawassa Industry Park located very close to HU is proving a key partner to the University in Technology Transfer and job market for the graduates.

So far EPIC Designers Ltd. of Hong Kong and Busana Apparel Group, Indonesia have come to Hawassa University, Discussed with officers and gave presentation to graduating students expressing the type of jobs they have for them.
