The project, which is in addition to the ongoing classroom projects, would be replicated at the College of Technology Education (COLTEK) and other campuses of the university.

Professor Afful-Broni said management was determined to increase the intake of students from the 2018/19 academic year as part of the desire to ensure that as many qualified young men and women as possible, received high quality university education.

He said the university was deeply committed to training and raising high calibre of disciplined, hardworking and dedicated people with high academic and moral repute for the country.

Professor Afful-Broni urged the graduates to face the challenges with courage and due diligence, while ensuring optimism at all times.
