Inauguration of Sunyani Technical University

Welcome you all to this memorable ceremony which symbolizes the inauguration of the Sunyani Technical University, launching of the new University Logo, launching of a five-year strategic plan."

Inauguration of Sunyani Technical University

I am highly honoured to welcome you all to this memorable ceremony which symbolizes the inauguration of the Sunyani Technical University, launching of the new University Logo, launching of a five-year strategic plan, which will guide the future direction of this university, and honouring of some distinguished personalities by naming some landmark facilities after them for their invaluable contributions to the development of this institution..

Also, at this ceremony, freshmen and women admitted to pursue various programmes of study at the Technical University for the 2016/2017 academic year will be matriculated.

Mr. Chairman, permit me to give a brief account of our past to the present. The Sunyani Technical University was established as a Technical Institute in 1967, as a non-tertiary institution, under the Ghana Education Service. It was subsequently upgraded to a Polytechnic in 1997, following the passage of the Polytechnic Law of 1992 (P.N.D.C. Law 321), by the Government of Ghana, as a Tertiary Educational Institution to run Higher National Diploma (HND) programmes. The Polytechnics Act, 2007 (Act, 745), which was an amendment of the P. N. D. C. Law 321, subsequently mandated the Polytechnics in Ghana to run and award Higher National Diploma (HND) Certificates, Diplomas and other higher degrees, subject to the approval of the Polytechnic Councils.

Ladies and Gentlemen, It will interest you to know that during the first ten years of the upgrading of the Polytechnics to tertiary status, not a year passed by without one form of agitation or the other by students, Lecturers or non-teaching staff. There were demonstrations and boycott of lectures by students to back their demands for recognition of the HND certificate, avenues for academic progression and appropriate placement of the Polytechnic graduate in the Public Service.

The Lecturers and non-teaching staff on their part were unhappy about their conditions of service, often basing their discontent on salary disparities between them and their counterparts in the universities who possessed the same or similar academic and professional qualifications.

  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.
