1st Colloquium: Welcome Address

I am extremely happy to welcome all of you to the first of series of colloquium lined up by the University authority to build the capacity of Faculty to meet the challenges ahead as we transit from the Polytechnic status into a Technical University.

Additionally, the colloquium is in preparation towards the introduction of the 4yr Bachelor of Technology programmes which we are assuredly waiting for approval and accreditation.

The theme for the colloquium “Science, Engineering, Technology and Innovations for Sustainable National Development”. Mr. Chairman, I find the theme to be in line with the Technical University 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 objectives for the establishment of Technical University education in Ghana is to promote technical and vocational education and training, technology transfer and skilled development to enhance the socio-economic development of the country.

To-days training programme is to equip you with the practical approach to the training of students that will enable come up with more forward-looking and resourceful ways of ensuring that trainees’ graduates acquire direct practical expertise that would distinguish them from their colleagues trained in other similar tertiary institutions such as the traditional Universities.

Mr. Chairman, it is a fact that Technical and Vocational education holds the key to the country’s developmental agenda. This therefore calls for the training of skilled manpower to lead Governments crusade towards its industrialization policy of one District one Factory (1D 1F).

Mr. Chairman, we are privileged to have in our mist a very knowledgeable and experienced personality who has been associated with industry over the years. Despite his busy schedule, he agreed to be here to share with us some of his experiences in industry.

To conclude, I will like to assure you that we will continue to organise and invite experts in areas that are related to our core mandate to come and share with us their practical experiences in industry so as to improve on our quality of teaching.

It is also my expectation that, you will pay attention to the presentation so that you will be able to ask questions that will impact positively on your teaching most especially Faculty members in Engineering, Built Environment and Applied Arts and Applied Science and Technology.

I thank you for your attention.

Prof. K. Adinkrah-Appiah

  2. Salancrete Building Blocks From A Mixture Of Sand, Laterite And Cement For Sustainable Housing Construction In Ghana

    This paper assesses the suitability of Salancrete block – mixture of sand, laterite and cement – for urban housing delivery in Ghana. Three Salancrete blocks were moulded from four lateritic soil samples obtained from Fiapre, Magazine, Kotokrom and S-Poly, all in the Sunyani Municipality. Also, three blocks each were moulded for sandcrete and landcrete (laterite and cement), using 10% cement content in each case. The 28-day compressive strength values were 5.76, 3.78 and 3.09 N/mm2 for Salancrete, Sandcrete and Landcrete respectively. It was concluded that combining laterite and sand will produce a more suitable block input for sustainable housing delivery in Ghana.

  3. Towards A Sustainable Ceramic Industry In Ghana: An Assessment Of The Working Environment Using Five Forces Industrial Model

    This paper discussed ceramics as an industry that is capable of improving Ghana’s economy and providing direct and indirect employment, and penetrating the international market. The working environments of the companies within the local industry were analysed using the Porter’s Five Forces Industrial Model which revealed that the Ghanaian Ceramic Companies are competitively weak in the areas of exports, and not able to compete favourably with new entrants, although, strong in the area of raw materials and resource inputs. Study showed that the challenges within the industry can be nipped in the bud if academia, industry and government work indivisibly.
