KNUST Partners with GRATIS Foundation

The Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology has entered into an agreement with the Ghana Regional Appropriate Technology Industrial Service (GRATIS) foundation to offer the opportunity for both parties to collaborate in progressive and supportive activities.

The partnership would provide opportunities for student interns to enhance their engineering skills with the state-of-the-art training facilities at GRATIS during their internships and facilitate research, innovation and product development in both institutions.
In his statement, the Vice-Chancellor, Professor K. K. Adarkwa hailed the good news and praised the delegation of GRATIS foundation for the initiative. He added that, as a Premiere University offering Science and Technology education in the country, KNUST aims at getting closer to industry and spearhead the developmental agenda of the country by solving the societal problems. He highlighted on a variety of innovations and researches undertaken by students and internship programmes organised by the University to develop their practical skills.

He however attributed the challenges of such programmes to the increase in student numbers. He thus hoped the collaboration would help improve the practical skills of students.
The C.E.O. of GRATIS foundation and an alumnus of the University, Mr. Emmanuel Adusei giving the background of the partnership, mentioned that, he was handicapped after graduation, as far as the practical and industrial experience aspects of his training were concerned. He said, he had to learn from those he supervised when he started his career.

He maintained that, the partnership would help students gain the practical experience in order not to end up in such a situation. He added that, his organisation is more concerned with increased female participation. He assured the house that, they were geared up for implementation of the MoU.
