The Bolgatanga Technical University, as part of its move towards gender inclusivity and excellence in engineering, has advanced plans to institute an award scheme that will honor the best female engineers each academic year.

The move, according to the Vice Chancellor of the University, Prof. Samuel Erasmus Alnaa, will not only support female engineering students financially but also bolster female representation and success in the field of engineering.

Speaking on A1 Radio, Prof. Alnaa highlighted the university’s commitment to fostering an environment where female engineers can thrive.

He emphasized that while traditionally male-dominated, engineering should be equally accessible and rewarding for all genders.

“We are not leaving the male to have it, but the female can also have it,” he affirmed, underlining the university’s dedication to gender equity in engineering education.

Prof. Alnaa explained that the award will be presented at each graduation ceremony, honoring the emerging best female engineering graduate.

He shared that last year, a deserving female student was awarded GH¢2,000.00 for her exemplary performance as the best female engineering graduate.

“This financial reward serves as both recognition for the recipient’s hard work and dedication, as well as an investment in supporting their future endeavors within the engineering field.”

Prof. Alnaa also underscored the importance of collaborative efforts in advancing gender diversity in engineering education.

He expressed gratitude for the partnership with CAMFED (Campaign for Female Education), which is actively involved in projects aimed at empowering women and girls through education.

Prof. Alnaa, therefore, noted that initiatives like these would play a vital role in realizing the goal of increasing the number of female engineers graduating from the Bolgatanga Technical University.
