Enrolment into government’s Railway University at Ketan in the Western region will start before the year ends.
The Minister for Railways Development, Joe Ghartey, who announced this said the university will start with the training of human resource to build the railway infrastructure.
The Minister, was addressing the Kuntum festival of the Chiefs and people of Essikado Area.
He said the Ministry has completed rehabilitation works on the Railway Training School. What is left is for the University of Mines and Technology UMat, to grant it accreditation.
In 2018, the Ministry for Railway Development signed an MoU with the University of Mines and Technology to commence both certificate, diploma and degree programmes beginning 2018/19 academic year.
The MOU was seen as the first step in turning the defunct railway training school into a centre of railway engineering courses and eventually the University of Railways and Infrastructural Development.
