Academic Metropolis introduces Ghana’s first BSc in Industrial and Methods Engineering programme


Educational Town College Faculty, a quality Science, Technological innovation, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics tertiary institution has declared the introduction of a degree programme in BSc. Industrial and Techniques Engineering, the 1st of its kind in Ghana.

This innovative and demand-pushed programme has productively obtained the required approval from the Nationwide Accreditation Board and scheduled to begin in September, 2020.  

The programme aims to provide college students with a complete comprehension of the use of modern-day producing techniques and technologies, optimisations of complex programs, procedures and corporations to achieve output efficiencies, product excellent and international management.

Prof. Fred McBagonluri, President of Tutorial Town University University

As the African continent gears toward industrializations for financial development, it has develop into essential to make industrial and method engineering an integral part of the industrialization push.

Industrial and Units engineers are essential in this section of the progress of the continent in buy to offer an built-in and dynamic technique viewpoint to challenges confronted by firms in the automobile producing, healthcare, finance, education among other folks.

It is in this endeavour that Tutorial Town has launched its Industrial and Units Engineering programme to nurture and equip the youthful generation with a broad-primarily based engineering basis, techniques considering point of view and potent facts evaluation abilities to design, assemble, optimize and administer productive and intricate modern-day output devices.

Talking about the new programme, Prof. Fred McBagonluri, President of Educational Metropolis expressed delight at the graduation of this new programme which he described as a key milestone in the background of the country’s tertiary instruction and observe up from the 2019 Peduase Declaration.

According to a report by US Bureau of Labour Figures, global employment of industrial and devices engineers is expected to improve steadily over the subsequent 10 years, more rapidly than the typical for all occupations.

“As the globe seeks engineers with analytical expertise and potent units standpoint, Academic Metropolis is committed to nurturing learners to come to be 21st engineering authorities who can boost productivity and efficiency as nicely as bettering present methods and setting up dynamic modern day devices for the continent,” Prof. McBagonluri mentioned.

Industrial and Units Engineering is anxious with the layout, advancement and installation of integrated devices of persons, materials, info, equipment and vitality.

It draws upon specialised know-how and ability in the mathematical, physical, and social sciences collectively with the principles and strategies of engineering investigation and layout, to specify, predict, and appraise the effects to be acquired from these types of units.

As a forward-considering educational institution, Educational City is on the verge of getting the initially university in Ghana to give degrees in Artificial Intelligence, Robotics and Biomedical.

According to Prof. McBagonluri, “We have submitted all the needed documentations to College of Mines and Know-how, Tarkwa which is our affiliate for assessment.

Ideally, we will get the acceptance from the Nationwide Accreditation Board on time to begin as shortly as possible.”

At Academic Town, innovation and entrepreneurial pondering are deemed core to a student’s foundational studying and improvement, and consequently are made into its programmes to create leaders of thought and initiators of thoughts.

It has one of the most effective-geared up STEM workshops in Ghana and is on track to open its next engineering workshop in September.

Each workshops are furnished with the genuine point out of the art industry equipment and tools to give pupils a first-hand, practical working experience of how these devices function.

The university’s fully digitized state-of-the-artwork campus is situated at Haatso, a suburb of Accra – Ghana. It has a assorted academic local community of college students, faculty as very well as staff from throughout the planet.
