President John Dramani Mahama has commissioned the building for the Faculty of Engineering in Koforidua Technical University.
The launch attracted hundreds of student onlookers, and the faculty is expected to facilitate teaching and learning in the area of Engineering at the Koforidua Technical University.
President John Mahama, as part of his working tour of the Eastern region inaugurated an engineering block to kick start the Technical course in the university. The faculty of Engineering has five well equipped laboratories, ten workshops, a conference hall and a lecture hall among others.
The Koforidua Polytechnic is now Koforidua University of Technology as it is the second after the Takoradi Polytechnic to meet the conversion criteria. The Koforidua Polytechnic is therefore among the first six polytechnics to become technical universities beginning next academic year.
