The two (2) Faculties and the Six (6) Departments started with the Institute on its inception as a Premier Private Training Institution, in 2017 and are all popular among prospective applicants because of the diverse nature of programmes offered to students. The individual Departments have flexible and industry relevant approach to instruction by incorporating measures that allow students to choose programme paths that suit their future aspirations.
All Faculties have as their mission and mandate to train professionals in all technical areas in contributing towards the socioeconomic development of Ghana and beyond and be recognized internally as pace-setters in the development of appropriate practical strategies for technology implementation at all levels of industry and the fore-runners of research into issues of technology across the globe.
The shared aims of all the faculties include but not limited to:
- Quality practical education that will be recognised both locally and internationally
- Opportunities for students to develop their unique skills set that will enable them to become expert professionals in their career.
- A conducive and suitable learning atmosphere for interactions between students and recognised subject specialists
- A suitable teaching environment for lecturers it employs so as to facilitate the state-of-the art 21st century instructional modes for the benefit of all learners.
The Institute started with two (2) Faculties with Sub Departments:
- FACULTY OF ENGINEERING
- Mechanical Engineering Department
- Electrical And Electronic Engineering Department
- Mechatronics Department
- Civil Engineering Department
- FACULTY OF AGRICULTURE AND ENVIRONMENTAL STUDIES
- Agriculture Mechanization Department
- Renewable Energy Technology Department
With the turn of the century, the field of mechanical engineering enters a particularly vital era. The “information age,” born in the last century, has already affected every aspect of our discipline and, without a doubt, revolutionized the field of mechanical engineering.
At the beginning of the 20th century, mechanical engineers designed and worked with large rotating machines. Today, our work spans all areas of energy production and transfer, as well as the vast area of system design and control.
Mechanical Engineering as an engineering subject has great relevance and provides valuable insights for students who are interested in understanding transmission and maintenance issues in society. Mechanical Engineering has gained importance in various transmissions and power generation in this changing world. It provides a foundation for students in their quest to know hands-on skills based on Competence Based Training (CBT) models in both workplace and research.
The four-year Bachelor of Technology programme in Mechanical Engineering seeks to prepare students with the appropriate skills for the understanding of workplace experience. This programme will develop and sharpen the workplace capabilities of students and appropriately apply the relevant skills in establishing themselves in small to large scale businesses or fit into the industry requirement.
Goal and Objectives of the Programme
The goal of the programme is to provide students with the necessary hands-on skills and training through practical and workplace experience and internships to help them improve their skills in analyzing and finding solutions to technical and vocational issues and problems.
The specific objectives are to:
- Enable students to acquire relevant technical/vocational skills and perspectives on manufacturing and maintenance problems
- Enhance students’ analytical and problem solving skills on manufacturing and maintenance problems.
- Help improve the ability of students to deal with technical/vocational problems
