Lead Innovations & Inventions

"...the key objectives for the establishment of Technical Universities in Ghana are to promote Engineering, Technical and Vocational Education and Training, based on skills development and Technology Transfer, for the creation of wealth and employment opportunities to contribute to the socio-economic development of the country."

I am extremely happy to welcome you all to the first of series of colloquia lined up by the Authorities of the Sunyani Technical University, STU, to sensitize our Faculty/Staff and Students on our key responsibilities, as a Technical University, in the quest for providing sustainable development, through industrialization, to our country, Ghana.

The theme for the 1st STU Colloquium is “Science, Engineering, Technology and Innovation for Sustainable National Development”. Mr. Chairman, I find this theme to be in line with the Technical Universities Act, 2016 (Act, 922) that established the Technical Universities in Ghana to provide higher education in Science, Engineering, Technology and Innovation based disciplines, Technical and Vocational Education and Training, Applied arts and related disciplines.

Mr. Chairman, the key objectives for the establishment of Technical Universities in Ghana are to promote Engineering, Technical and Vocational Education and Training, based on skills development and Technology Transfer, for the creation of wealth and employment opportunities to contribute to the socio-economic development of the country. The Ghanaian Technical Universities are, therefore, like the MIT of the USA, or the Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs), as they lead innovations and inventions in their respective countries.

Today’s Lecture will remind the Faculty and Staff of Sunyani Technical University to recognize our mandate of imparting practical skills training; through Science, Engineering, Technology and Innovation; Entrepreneurial Development; and Critical thinking to our students; and it will equally challenge our students to understand that Ghana is hopefully looking up to them for solutions to the problems faced by society through the knowledge, skills and behavioral change that they acquire from the four corners of this University.

Mr. Chairman, by the end of this colloquium, we expect to find teachers and students of this university being ready to contribute positively to the country’s industrialization drive through programmes such as the 1D1F, Ghana beyond Aid and Planting for Food and Jobs through the available concepts of Science, Engineering, Technology and Innovation.

Mr. Chairman, we are privileged to have in our midst a very erudite and experienced Engineering Professional who has been associated with industry over the years. Despite his busy schedule, he agreed to be here with us today to share his experience on the chosen theme.

It is my expectation that, you will pay particular attention to the presentation so that you can ask productive questions at the end. Let me also assure you that these lectures will be organized once every quarter to keep both Faculty/Staff and Students on their toes towards our mandate to help build this country’s future through Science, Engineering Technology and Innovations.

Thank you very much and God Bless you for your attention.
