Final-year students of the Asankare Technical Institute (ATI) in the Asante Akim South District of the Ashanti Region have visited the Akenten Appiah-Menkah University of Skills Training and Entrepreneurial Development (AAMUSTED) on an educational tour ahead of their final examination in a few months.

The educational tour of March 22, 2024, allowed them the chance to visit laboratories and workshops of the University to garner firsthand experience with various tools, equipment, and machines.

They were also treated to a special welcoming session where the Heads of Department from the Faculties of Technical Education (FTE) and Vocational Education (FVE) and some personnel from the Admissions Section of the University exposed them to operations and opportunities in AAMUSTED.

Dr. Francis Bih, Head of the Department of Wood Science, encouraged them to work hard to qualify for admission into AAMUSTED. He said the University has been established to develop the skills of citizens to go into job creation and improve the employment situation of the country.

He, thus, assured them that their choice to pursue a career in Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) was the best and that if they gained admission into AAMUSTED, they would have the added advantage of being trained as professional teachers and entrepreneurs.

The Head of the Department of Hospitality and Tourism, Dr. Doreen Dedo Adi, was happy that the ATI chose AAMUSTED to visit at a time when its students were preparing to write their final examinations. She hoped that the visit would open a door for a stronger bond between the two institutions and their students.


She said AAMUSTED would be glad to admit all the ATI final students during the next academic year if they could all meet the basic entry requirements of the University.

Other faculty members present to receive the ATI students were Dr. Frederick Simpeh, Dr. Offei Gyimah, Dr. Patrick Ayambire, all from the Faculty of Technical Education. Other staff were Mr. Richmond Butler, Manager of Mynd FM, and Mr. William Attah Armah, Admissions Section.

Miss Beatrice Quansah, Tutor, who led the over sixty (60) ATI students, was grateful to the University for the warm reception they received. She said their expectations for the visit were exceeded and the students had gained valuable practical experiences that would help them in their examinations.

The other tutors from the ATI were Linda Serwaa Asare, Emmanuel Osei Amoah, Davis Simon Acquah, Patricia Oforiwaa Adomako, and Cynthia Agbotse.
