Pentecost University is recruiting students to its 5 Bachelor of Engineering (BEng) programmes. This follows approval granted the University by the Ghana Tertiary Education Commission. This makes PU the first indigenous Ghanaian University to start industry-focused BEng programmes on its own.
The programmes include BEng Robotics and Automation; BEng. Electricals and Electronics; BEng. Systems Engineering, BEng Manufacturing Engineering and BEng Environmental Engineering.
Commenting on the development, the Vice-Chancellor of PU, Prof. Kwabena Agyapong-Kodua described it as monumental. The VC said the 5 programmes will reinforce the University’s position to provide industry-relevant engineering education that will equip the next generation for the increasingly sophisticated Industry 4.0/5.0 requirements. Linking it to the Pentecost Engineering Village, the VC said, there will be intensive practicals, research and nurturing of sufficient expertise for national development.
Commenting on the uniqueness of the BEng programmes, the Acting Director of Pentecost University’s International Digital Centre, Isaac Kuma-Yeboah said they are significantly different from the regular Bachelor of Science programmes. According to the Director, the BEng Engineering Programme is more geared toward practicals, research, teaching and learning with intensive industry engagement for both the students and faculty members. Providing further details on the models, Mr Kuma-Yeboah said the students will undertake industry attachment in their first three years of study and spend the entire fourth year in the industry under the joint supervision of faculty and industry practitioners.
Pentecost University is a leading multidisciplinary University in Africa. The new programmes add to its strategically diverse programmes in Business, IT, Health, Law and Theology and Leadership.
