Students Learning How to Operate a Drone

The University of Mines and Technology, on Monday 25th and Tuesday, 26th July, 2022 hosted students of some selected Senior and Junior High Schools in its catchment areas on an educational tour of the University and its laboratories. The event, which formed part of activities scheduled for the celebration of the University’s 70th Institutional Anniversary, was aimed at encouraging the students on the need to pursue Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) programmes in the pursuit of their careers.

Prof. Richard K. Amankwah, Vice Chancellor, welcomed the students and assured them that the University has opened its doors to all students in the University’s catchment areas who want to undertake such educational tours or further their education in the University. Prof Amankwah stated that as part of efforts to encourage the study of engineering, UMaT offers a one-year pre-engineering course for all non-science students who are tutored in basic engineering principles and other relevant science subjects, to prepare them for the University’s engineering programmes. He therefore encouraged them to study hard in order to realize their academic ambitions.
