Christopher Lovett's library donates to STU

Retired UK lecturer donates to Sunyani Technical University

Christopher Lovett's library donates to STU

The Sunyani Technical University (STU) has taken delivery of forty-seven (47) text books on communication engineering from Christopher Lovett, a retired lecturer of the University of Portsmouth, U.K.

The donation formed part of activities marking the tenth anniversary of the Anglican Bishop of Sunyani, Rt. Rev. Dr. Festus Yeboah Asuamah.

Christopher Lovett, who is also a member of the St. Thomas Anglican Cathedral of Portsmouth, decided to give away his library books for use by students and lecturers to broaden their horizon in the area of communication engineering, as he bows out of work as a lecturer.

STU, which is located within the jurisdiction of the Sunyani Diocese of the Anglican Church, benefitted from the benevolence of Christopher Lovett as a result of the link between the St. Thomas Anglican Cathedral of Portsmouth and its counterpart, the St. Anselm’s Anglican Cathedral in Sunyani under the auspices of the Inter-Diocesan West African Link.

Three members of the Anglican Diocese of Portsmouth, U.K, Lay Canon Marion Syms, Rev Linda Porter and her husband, Dr. Steve Porter on behalf of Christopher Lovett presented the books to the University. They were led by Rev. Canon Martin A. Amankwah, a lecturer and Chaplain of the STU and also an Anglican priest.

The Vice-Chancellor of STU, Prof. Ing. Kwadwo Adinkrah-Appiah received the books on behalf of the university.

Present at the ceremony were the Pro-Vice Chancellor, Dr. Justice Solomon Korantwi-Barimah; the Registrar Mr. Samuel Ankama Obour and Dr. Samuel Wiafe, Acting Dean of the Faculty of Engineering as well as other senior members of the university.

  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.
