Vice-Chancellor of Koforidua Technical University (KTU), Professor David Kofi Assuman has confirmed that the Institution has introduced welding and fabrication as two new courses in its four-year B-Tech Programme.
According to him, the new programme is set to begin in the 2021 academic year adding that it will be the game-changer.
Speaking on an Accra-based radio station, the Vice-Chancellor said "We are hoping to start on 2021 and luckily, we have taken delivery of all the equipments we will require to train them properly. Most at times, people see welding as business which is done on the roadside but we want to tell them we are doing a degree programme on that in Koforidua Technical University"
He further indicated that, he believes students will show interest, enroll, study, pass and obtain their degrees adding that welding and fabrication provides lots of opportunity in the market.
"I am grateful to have these equipments. This four year course will produce technical people who will support the one district, one factory programme initiated by President Akufo-Addo" he noted.
The Vice-Chancellor added that since many factories require people to handle its machinery and equipments, he is urging the public enroll, get trained professionally and help others in future.
