He praised the quality of technical education offered by KsTU, stating that affiliating with the University aligns with KTI's mission to equip African youth with industrial skills and knowledge to thrive on the competitive job market.

Prof. Kofi Agyarko Ababio, Director of the Institute of Distance and Continuing Education (IDCE) at KsTU, highlighted that the MoU, which commenced last year, has undergone revisions for enhanced effectiveness. Notably, both parties have committed to providing practical training for artisans and students, along with facilitating access to facilities and fostering collaborative projects.

In his response, Prof. Gabriel Dwomoh commended the initiative and assured the delegation of KsTU's commitment to implementing the MoU. He emphasised the need for tangible outcomes and meaningful engagements stressing the importance of collaboration beyond mere formalities.

This initiative aims to provide opportunities for students to further their education and contribute to the advancement of technical education in the region.
