KsTU Holds Its 2022 Special Congregation Ceremony

The 18th Congregation of Kumasi Technical University (KsTU) was held on 21st December 2022 at the New Great Hall of the University with a total number of 1,567 students who completed their programmes in the 2020/2021 academic year. The programme categories were Master of Technology (MTech), Bachelor of Technology (BTech), Professional Diploma, Ordinary Diploma, and the Commission for Technical and Vocational Education and Training (CTVET) Diploma programmes.

Speaking at the ceremony, the Vice-Chancellor (VC) Ing. Professor Nana Osei-Wusu Achaw noted that the University, in keeping with its vision of becoming a world-class technical university, had redoubled its efforts to introduce new academic programmes. They are two Master’s programmes – Master of Science (MSc) in Accounting and Information Systems and Master of Technology Mechatronics, five undergraduate programmes, three diplomas, and a pre-engineering course.

Prof. Wusu-Achaw said the University was poised to lead in technology and innovation education, and that was why KsTU had developed a cabinet of new programmes to drive and address Africa’s technology challenges. The institution is the first public technical university to introduce a bachelor programme in artificial intelligence, which would be rolled out in January 2023. “KsTU is committed to redefining itself as a world-class technical institution and, therefore, actively supports and encourages faculty to engage in research activities that support the development of Ghana,” he stated The University, he said, was also collaborating with varied partners in delivering relevant and comprehensive knowledge and skill sets in higher learning.

The VC said with the introduction of the new programmes, the University currently runs 76 programmes. They are made up of Master of Technology programmes, Bachelor of Technology programmes, Higher National Diplomas, non-tertiary Diplomas, and tertiary and technician programmes.

The Chancellor, Dr. Addo-Kufuor, on his part, urged the graduates to use the skills acquired to position themselves to be self-dependent and develop their businesses to strengthen the private sector and the Ghanaian economy. He underscored that it was the conviction of many Ghanaians that the Technical and Vocational Education Training (TVET) would be the game changer in the development of the country. The Chancellor lauded the policy of the government to commit many resources to TVET as a way of enhancing and promoting graduate self-employability.
