As part of efforts to improve academic facilities, Management has upgraded the main Computer Laboratory at the Department of Computer Science with 60 new Huawei computers, a smart screen, central server, and CCTV cameras.
The project, according to the Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Ben Honyenuga, was funded through Internally Generated Funds with support from Huawei Technologies. He added that the Department has consistently seen increase in its enrolment, with programmes that are steadily becoming the flagship programmes of the University. He commended the students for their hard work and their regular award winning in competitions.
The Registrar in a remark urged students and faculty to regulate the use of the laboratory for sustainability. According to him, the University, including the Department has many needs which needs critical attention. It is therefore crucial that the maintenance of the retooled laboratory and other facilities intended for practical training, be taken seriously. He commended the Vice-Chancellor for the retooling, adding that this was one of the many initiatives the Vice-Chancellor has taken to improve teaching and learning in the University.
Representing the Head of Department, the immediate past HoD, Mr. Adolf S. Adu assured Management that the facility will be handled with optimal care and use.
The Director of Works and Physical Development, Mr. Nicholas Awagah added that the fabrication of the desks for the facility was fully done by the carpentry section of the Directorate. He commended his staff for an excellent production of the furniture and assured the Department of its durability. He also indicated that the make of the furniture was to make it difficult for students to move them out of the lab.
