Hollo!, I’m Prof. Ing. Kwadwo Adinkrah-Appiah

On behalf of the Governing Council, Management and Staff of Sunyani Technical University (STU), in affiliation with the Management and Staff of the Ghana Armed Forces Engineer Training School, Teshie, here in Accra, I have the pleasure to welcome all Freshmen and Women to the first Matriculation Ceremony of the Engineer Training School. A matriculation ceremony is held at the beginning of every academic year to formally admit fresh students into a university. This morning, the first batch of students of the Armed Forces Engineer Training School for the 2023/24 Academic Year would be made to swear the matriculation oath of Sunyani Technical University. They would be led to pledge solemnly and publicly to obey the provisions of the Students’ Handbook, the Statutes, and other Rules and Regulations of the University, as well as to strive to achieve excellence through the pursuit of knowledge and skills for personal and community development.


In May 2023, Sunyani Technical University signed a Memorandum of Agreement with the Armed Forces Engineer Training School, Teshie, Accra, to collaborate to develop and roll out academic programmes, undertake joint research and training seminars for mutual benefits. Barely a year after the signing of the said MoA, the partnership has culminated in the rolling out of three Bachelor of Technology (BTech) programmes at the Engineer Training School, here in Teshie, Accra, including: BTech Building Technology; BTech Electrical and Electronics Engineering and BTech Wood Technology.

Ladies and Gentlemen, I must state at this juncture that the Management of Sunyani Technical University is quite satisfied with this positive development so far and hence promise to double up our efforts to ensure continuous growth of this partnership. We pledge our continuous dedication towards the achievement of all the objectives set out in the partnership agreement signed between our two Institutions.


The first intake of the Armed Forces Engineer Training School, Teshie, Accra, in affiliation with Sunyani Technical University, for the 2023/24 Academic year stands at a total of 96. Out of this number, 94, representing 97.9%, are Males, whilst 2, representing 2.1%, are Females. In terms of disciplines, 39, representing 40.6%, enrolled in BTech Building Technology; 34, representing 35.4% enrolled in BTech Electrical and Electronics Engineering; whereas 23, representing 24.0% enrolled in BTech Wood Technology.


As students of Sunyani Technical University, you are expected to exhibit a high sense of purpose and diligence in pursuing your academic career here at the Engineer Training School. This will help you achieve the required skill-set and competence that will make you successful in the world of work. You are the future leaders of this country, as some of you here, in not too far in the future, would become Lecturers of this and other Institutions, Professional Engineers, High Ranking Military Officers, Parliamentarians and even President of this country.

You should, therefore, be serious with your studies here at the Engineer Training School campus, an affiliate of the Sunyani Technical University, so that you can climb the academic ladder successfully.

The Sunyani Technical University requires you, as students of the University, to be disciplined and Law-abiding. As Military Officers, we are aware that discipline is one of your core values already, but we expect you to improve upon it during the course of your studies here at the Engineer Training School. You are here to be trained not only in academic work but also in decent character formation that would make you responsible citizens in future, to contribute positively to national development. Negative attitudes such as violation of laid down rules and regulations of the University; including examination malpractice, alcoholism, betting, thievery and all forms of sexual promiscuity among students would not be tolerated. Culprits of such acts would be made to face disciplinary procedures and consequent sanctions from the Management of the University.

I, therefore, urge you to read and understand fully the rules and regulations of the Sunyani Technical University as enshrined in the Students’ Handbook, copies of which have been made available to you individually and also published on the University Website, so that you will be conversant with them.


In conclusion, as an academic institution of higher learning, we take pride in our students and hence, we are very proud of you as our first batch of students at the Engineer Training School, Teshie, Accra. We, therefore, expect you to abide by all rules and regulations and take your studies seriously in order to excel here on campus and later in the world of work to make STU proud. Put up good character everywhere you find yourselves so that you would serve as good ambassadors of the Sunyani Technical University. I wish you a happy and successful academic career here at the Engineer Training School, and may the Lord guide and protect you till you successfully complete your programmes of study.

Thank you very much and may God bless us all.
