The Registrar of the C.K Tedam University of Technology and Applied Sciences (CKT-UTAS), Dr. V.A Ankamah-Lomotey has said the university is shaping up to become the best university in the area of science and technology.
If given the time and adequate resources, the university is confident it would outclass the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST).
While barely 2 years old, the university has chalked some tremendous gains; the infrastructural, funding and staffing challenges notwithstanding.
“Well, looking at the pace we are going, and indeed let me state that the only university that maybe we will want to rub shoulders with will be Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology because they are running the exact programs we are running here and so they are our targets.”
Dr. Ankamah-Lomotey was optimistic that the pace with which the university was going, the university within the next five years would be head off.
“But looking at the pace at which we are going, in less than five years we would be ahead.”
The Registrar was quick to add that the journey towards being a premier university in the country needn’t be rushed. He said the university would take time to do things right.
“It is not a race with anybody. We want to take our time to crawl, and then walk and then we can begin to run so that we don’t get fixated anywhere.”
While the university is on track, it is challenged with infrastructure. He said the management of the university has had some level of engagement with investors and stakeholders to invest in the university.
