The President of the University, The Reverend (Rev.) Dr Samuel Donkor announced this at this year’s matriculation to formally welcome newly admitted students into the university.
He said the University was the first institution in Sub-Saharan Africa to establish the first amateur ground station for research into space science and satellite technology.
Dr Donkor said in May 2013, the University made history by being the first university in Sub –Saharan Africa to design , build and launch a miniature educational satellite, and that in December last year, the ground station of the University was able to make contact with the International Space Station.
He said the University aimed at delivering a world class educational system to produce graduates who could transform the African continent from low levels of production to a level that Africa could pride itself as being a continent rich in human and natural resources.
The President urged the students to challenge themselves to reach as high as possible on the academic ladder and provide the required leadership to the society.
He further urged them to take responsibility for their successes, happiness and mistakes.
