The University of Energy and Natural Resources (UENR) is to set up an assembly plant for the manufacture and assembling of solar products at the University.

Currently, discussions are on-going between the University and Zoomlion, a Ghanaian Waste Management Company and SolarGrid, a Canadian Company to form partnership for the project’s take-off, Professor (Mrs.) Esi Awuah, the Vice-Chancellor said on Saturday in Sunyani.

Prof. (Mrs.) Awuah who was addressing the fourth matriculation ceremony of the University said the project, upon completion would provide opportunity for some engineering students to undertake their internship or attachment in the company.

She therefore expressed optimism that through their increasing collaboration with their partners, they would continue to nature high class professional graduates who could bring about the needed scientific, technological and socio-economic transformation.

Prof. (Mrs.) Awuah explained “globalization is about building partnerships, as in this knowledge age, knowledge generation is not confined to only the universities but includes industry and other organisations”.

Hence, the University has partnered with several institutions to share ideas, provide platform for student and staff exchange, as well as serve as practical training grounds for their students for the mutual benefit of industry and the University, the VC indicated.

On the 2015/2016 academic year enrolment, Prof. (Mrs.) Awuah said the University had 1,582 applications but 1,272, representing 80 per cent out of that number qualified for admission.

She said the University was able to admit only 794 students which represented 62 per cent of the total qualified applicants and explained that, out of that, 677, indicating 85 per cent were males while 117, that is 15 per cent were females.

This year’s enrolment has therefore brought the total student population of the institution to 2,377, the VC added.
