A delegation from Ecole Superieure de Technologie Avancee et de Management (ESTAM) that is, Higher School of Advanced Technology and Management in Abidjan, Cote d’Ivoire has paid a working visit to the Vice Chancellor of UMaT. The Delegation was led by Dr Grobri Zebeyou Nestor, the Manager of the Organisation. He was accompanied by Mr Isaac Odame, his Assistant. ESTAM is a private organisation that puts together about 130 educational institutions in Côte d’Ivoire. These include Senior High Schools, Universities, Professional and Technical institutions.

According to him one of their objectives is to provide orientation to young Ivoirians and their parents about opportunities of studying outside their country. Therefore, UMaT had been chosen as a destination for their training for the English Language as well as Engineering and postgraduate Programmes. According to Dr Grobri Zebeyou Nestor, the mission of their visit was to establish a relationship with UMaT with the aim of providing a mutually beneficial framework that UMaT and ESTAM could work together to achieve.

After giving a brief on UMaT to the delegation, the Vice Chancellor, Prof J. S. Y. Kuma expressed the gratitude of the University to them for their determination to visit UMaT to collaborate for the purpose of attracting students from Côte d’Ivoire to UMaT, which the Vice Chancellor said was the best Public Funded University in Ghana today. He thanked them for their resolve to come and see what UMaT was doing in the area of training of quality engineers. He expressed the hope that the collaboration would allow the two institutions to attract more students to UMaT. The Vice Chancellor also gave some notable achievements of UMaT, including the fact that UMaT was an active player in the training of small scale miners. He indicated that as part of the Government’s policy of curbing illegal mining in the country, UMaT was tasked by the Government to train some 5,000 small scale miners in the best methods of mining sustainably.

Dr Grobri Zebeyou Nestor was happy to note that UMaT was the leading player in the training of small scale miners in the country. He indicated that he would try to impress upon the Ministry in charge of Natural Resources in Côte d’Ivoire to turn their attention to UMaT for this important training to be given to some of their people especially in the area of safety.

At the end of the discussions the meeting agreed on some common grounds for mutual benefit which would feature in a Memorandum of Understanding that would be developed soon.

Also present at the meeting were Assoc Prof V. A. Temeng, the Pro Vice Chancellor, Mr A. K. Doku, the Registrar, Dr Evans Kokoroko, the Co-ordinator of the French Language Centre in UMaT and Mr Paul Yeboah, the University Relations Officer.
