Professor Ben Honyenuga, Acting Vice Chancellor, Ho Technical University has described the University as the reference point for hospitality training in the country.

He said the University was therefore achieving its aim in skill development and training through innovations and transformational activities.

“We may not have everything but we have what it takes to transforms students to be the best,” the Acting Vice Chancellor said.

Prof. Honyenuga said this at the 26th matriculation of the 2nd batch of students for 2018/2019 academic year and 3rd batch for Master of Technology in collaboration with the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology.

He enumerated a number of national awards won by the University in recent times and told the Ghana News Agency that HTU remained the best technical university in the country.

Prof. Honyenuga said the University was the pioneer in Automobile Engineering and also the first to run Masters of Technology in Refrigeration, Air Conditioning, Agriculture and Production Engineering, saying, “we have come very far and you must be happy to be here.”

He asked the students to integrate academic excellence with integrity, self-discipline and moral uprightness to excel.

Prof. Honyenuga cautioned that acts of gross indiscipline such as fighting, stealing, noise making, use of drugs and alcohol and examination malpractices would not be entertained.

He also warned against acts including occultism, homosexuality, sexual assault and provocative dressing.

The Acting Vice Chancellor advised students who found it difficult to quit such acts to consult the University’s Counselling Unit for assistance to avoid sanctions when caught.

Miss Selase Yayra Kokroko, who delivered the matriculants’ expectations appealed to the University to address residential accommodation challenges and provide modern teaching and learning equipment.
