The first batch of 13 graduate students admitted to newly converted Ho Technical University (HTC) to pursue Master of Technology (MTech) has had its matriculation.
The technical university has thus becomes the first polytechnic to begin a Master in Technology degree programme in the country after being the first to begin bachelor degree programmes.
It has therefore provided a platform for training human resources of the country at higher levels of education.
The HTC is running the programme in collaboration with the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST).
The student will undertake course in mechanical engineering with specialization in automobile engineering, production engineering, refrigeration and air conditioning engineering; agriculture engineering with specialisation in soil and water engineering and post-harvest engineering.
Addressing the matriculation ceremony, the acting Vice Chancellor of HTC, Dr Ben Hoenyenuga, said as pioneers, they must conduct themselves so as to consolidate the image of the technical university.
