Ashesi University to introduce Engineering Courses in September 2015

The Ghana National Accreditation Board has granted programme accreditation for Ashesi University College to offer degrees in Computer Engineering, Electronic and Electrical Engineering, and Mechanical Engineering.

Developed over two and a half years, Ashesi’s engineering majors will be the first major addition to the university’s academic programmes since 2005.

“This is a moment that caps two and a half years of focused effort to lay the foundation for an engineering programme at Ashesi,” said Ashesi President, Patrick Awuah.

“It also marks a beginning for us, as we start recruiting our pioneer class of engineering students for September 2015, and set off on a journey of design, tinkering and innovation.”

Ashesi’s new engineering majors, by placing emphasis on hands-on learning, entrepreneurship, design and problem solving, will equip students with skills to create long-term solutions to Africa’s engineering challenges and deploy better-designed infrastructure for local needs.

In May of 2015, construction teams at Ashesi also handed over keys to a new engineering building on the University’s campus in Berekuso, which will house engineering labs, classrooms and faculty offices.

As a pioneer in liberal arts education in Africa, Ashesi’s world-class teaching model has inspired many universities across the continent. Our engineering programme, developed with support from university partners and industry stakeholders, will add strong complementary skill-set to the growing community of young African leaders being educated at Ashesi.
