THE Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) has held a special congregation to confer postgraduate degrees on deserving students.
The Special Guest of Honour was the Asantehene and Chancellor of the University, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II.
In a speech, the Asantehene said the KNUST had chalked up many successes in science and technology education in the country, and added that when the university celebrated its 60 years of existence later this year, it would be doing so with pride.
He challenged the graduates who passed out with Master’s and PhD degrees to go out and portray the good image of the University by contributing positively to national development at their various places of work.
Otumfuo Osei Tutu commended the outgoing Vice Chancellor (VC), Prof. K.K. Adarkwa for effectively steering the affairs of the University during his tenure and expressed confidence that the incoming VC, Prof. W.O Ellis, would build on the achievements made so far.
In his remarks, Prof. Adarkwa said the University would continue to introduce new programmes tailored at meeting the needs of the nation.
