According to Professor Nana Aba Appiah Amfo, the centre was opened in October 2023, and aims to provide students with hands-on training and experience in the field of engineering.
“This facility exemplifies the synergy between academia and industry and is a significant contribution and investment to the University’s engineering programme,” she said.
Speaking during the first in a 15-part series of congregation ceremonies, Prof Amfo said that Toyota Ghana is committed to providing $2 million worth of equipment over 10 years to support the training of students.
Prof Amfo added that Toyota Ghana has donated a 33-seater Toyota Coaster bus to the university as part of its commitment to the partnership.
In addition to the partnership with Toyota Ghana, the university has also formed significant collaborations with other leading companies in Ghana to support the university’s growth.
