Building Technology Alumni Donate to Department

The Department of Building Technology received a set of building equipment from the 1999 year batch to support teaching and learning. This comes handy as the Department embarked on the construction of a 3-bed bungalow as part of practical works of the students of the Department.

At a brief handing-over ceremony on 30th May, 2019 at the practicals construction site, the Head of Department Dr. Divine Norvieto expressed his heartfelt appreciation to the 1999 batch for their selfless gesture to the Department. He also entreated other year groups to emulate this gesture.

The Registrar, Dr. Christopher Amehoe said when the Department came to Management with the idea of building a bungalow the Vice Chancellor embraced the project and encouraged the Department and students to make it work. He was grateful to the Alumni for their gesture.

A representative of the year group, Raymond Kirk Apawu recounted that he visited campus and saw the project the students were doing and was glad that they were acquiring the needed hands on skills as expected of students of the Department. He recounted that a number of his colleagues were touched by his accounts of practical works of students, which has culminated into the donation.

The Vice Chancellor, Professor Ben Honyenuga expressed gratitude for the step taken by the past students and urged others to emulate same. He stated that practicality of training is what distinguishes students of the University from their colleagues from other Universities.

“The difference we bring is experience and hands on skills that when our students go out they do not need additional coaching before they start work unlike the other Universities. The equipment will go a long way to help the students in skills acquisition and also help the University to house its members.”- Professor Honyenuga said.He used the occasion to encourage students to aim higher in whatever they do.‘The world is a simple place so do not make it complex but take it little by little’. - Professor Honyenuga reiterated.
