The Faculty of Engineering endeavours to train students to acquire technical skills to enable them deal with engineering challenges facing the nation. The training emphasizes the acquisition of practical skills, the right attitude to work , respect for time, tembuilding discipline and self-sacrifice.
The department produce graduates who are well equiped to solve industrial problems such as managing and operating industrial plants and equipments as well as design and build plants and equipments. Our graduates also work in commerce and in the service industries example in technical sales and consultancy.
Presently, there are six (6) departments in the School namely
Each of these departments offer one or more programmes at the Higher National Diploma (HND) level.
The vision of the Faculty of Engineering is to become a pace setter in the training
of skilled tertiary level manpower in the area of Engineering for the development
To churn out products who are skilled enough to champion the developmental
agenda of the country in the area of Engineering.
Management of the Faculty
The Faculty is headed by Dr. Anthony Osei-Twumasi as the Dean who is ably
supported by a Vice Dean(Debrah- Apraku Felix) and an Assistant Registrar(Charles Obeng-Sarpong).
There is an ongoing collaborative discussion between the Faculty and the Port
Harcourt University to run a PhD in Chemical Engineering.
Also, the Faculty is in discussion with Ghana Breweries Limited to train their
staff in Basic Electrical and Mechanical Engineering. Again, the Department of
Electrical Engineering in collaboration with Japan International Cooperation
Agency (JICA) has designed a solar-powered fufu pounding machine.
Currently, four (4) lecturers from Chemical Engineering Department are pursuing
their PhDs in Loughboroug University (UK), UNESCO-IHE Institute for water
Education (Netherlands), and Yangtze University in China.
Also, one Senior Instructor was awarded a scholarship by the Polytechnic to pursue
his Master’s Degree in China.
The Faculty was relocated to the new B.Tech Extension block.
A new ultra-modern Mechatronic Laboratory as Centre for Energy and Process
Training was established.
- The Faculty intends to go into assembly of motor vehicle.
- In collaboration with Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA), the Faculty has plans to design and put in operation a solar-powered wheel chair and a solar tracker.
- Within the year, the Faculty shall go into commercial production of the solar–powered fufu pounding machine, solar cooker and solar oven.
- In collaboration with COTVET, the Faculty shall establish a Renewable Energy Research Centre of Excellence for the benefit of the general public especially, the Polytechnic.
