The Vice Chancellor of the Takoradi Institute of Technology (TTU), Rev. John Eshun, said one of the ways the university becomes visible is through the promotion of research and community services.
He said TTU embarked on an active research effort to aim at equipping staff to assess the research’s contribution to university rankings and visibility.
Rev. Prof.Eshun disclosed during the TTU’s Sixth Congregation to confer degrees, diplomas and certificates to deserving students.
Rev. Prof. Eshun mentioned that, from next academic year, faculties will be ranked according to their contributions to research.
“We believe this will lead to access to grants, since every lecturer is expected to be a fund raiser to support the institution as well as promoting research among faculty members.
“The vision of Takoradi Technical University is to be a world-class technical university recognised for excellence, innovation and societal relevance with its niche area in the oil and gas engineering. This vision is the driving force of all our activities as a technical university.” he said.
