The Ghana Technology University College (GTUC) has admitted 1,094 fresh students with a call on them to be transformational thinkers and doers for the country.

Professor Abeku Blankson, the Vice President of GTUC said this at the 21st matriculation ceremony held in Accra, at the weekend.

Professor Blankson said the country needed transformational leaders, thinkers and most importantly doers who were committed to propelling Ghana’s development.

He said, “Education is not the preparation of life, but it is life itself and therefore encouraged the students to work hard and take charge of their education seriously to help shape their future and destiny at GTUC.”

He challenged the students to open up themselves and their minds and take their education to the highest level.

He urged them to make an effort to excel in various co-curricular activities of the university and represent GTUC in all the activities.

Professor Blankson said, the college stands for excellence, driven by passion, commitment and unreasonable desire to be the best.

“It also stands for student-centeredness, to see students succeed and transformed into future leaders and professionals,” he added.

On academic freedom, the vice president said, the college encourages diversity of thinking and development of students, staff and   faculty.

“With innovation and integrity, the college stands to discover and partner and also bound by honesty ethics and accountability respectively he said.

The Vice president said the college again stands in a place where theory combines with practical to give a better understanding of the world around them.

Out of the 1,094 students admitted into the college, 928 are males and 166 are females, with a total of 27 International students, to do both degree and diploma.
