UENR Appeals For Facilities

uenr_logoThe Vice Chancellor of the University of Energy and Natural Resources in the Brong-Ahafo Region,Prof. Esi  Awuah, has appealed to the government and the private sector to partner the university in providing adequate facilities and infrastructure in order to enhance access and quality education.

Prof. Awuah explained that out of 909 applicants who applied for admission this year only 560 were admitted due to limited facilities and infrastructure.

“The university could certainly have admitted more if our lecture theatres and laboratories could allow for more of qualified applicants to be admitted,”Prof Awuah explained.

Prof. Awuah said this at the second matriculation ceremony to admit fresh men and women held at the forecourt of the Get-Fund Hostel on Saturday in Sunyani.

The Vice Chancellor who administered the matriculation oath to the students, advised them to show absolute obedience and respect to the school authorities as well as all those who had been placed in responsible positions to serve them in accordance with the university statutes.
“As a matter of fact, your continuous stay in this university would depend on the extent to which you adhere to the tenets of the oath you have sworn today,” she said.

She announced that five new programmes had been added to the three programmes that the university started with at its opening last year.
The new programmes are: B.Sc. Electrical and Electronic Engineering, B.Sc. Mechanical Engineering, B.Sc. Environmental Engineering, B.Sc. Computer Science and B.Sc. Mathematics.

French is being introduced as a working language to be studied by students as a means of giving them a strong competitive advantage in the global market.
