The University of Mines and Technology (UMaT) at Tarkwa has established two satellite campuses in Sekondi and Cape Coast.

The first is the School of Railways and Infrastructure Development at Essikado where six programmes already running at the university will be offered at the new Campus to expand access, with the second being the Mfantseman Institute of Technology in Cape Coast.

The Vice-Chancellor of UMaT, Professor Jerry Yao Kumah was speaking at the 12th Congregation of the University which was partially held virtual.

As part of the COVID-19 protocols, only graduates who had first class were allowed to be physically present at the programme while all other graduates joined the ceremony via virtual platforms.

Degrees, Diplomas and Certificates, as well as Honorary Doctorate Degrees, were conferred on seven distinguished personalities.

Professor Kumah said UMaT has initiated various interventions that are aimed at turning out graduates who will offer solutions to the myriad of challenges facing the country.

The Western Regional Minister, Kwabena Okyere Darko-Mensah indicated that UMaT will under the Enterprise Western Region Agenda be made to partner the implementation process of a five million dollar grant geared towards the setting up of clean water systems.
