Prez Cuts Sod For $90 Million University At Bunso

President Nana Addo Danquah Akufo-Addo on Friday, 20 May, 2022, cut sod for the commencement of the construction for University of Engineering and Agricultural Sciences (UEAS), at Bunso in the Eastern Region. In the State of the Nation’s address on March 30, 2022, the president indicated that steps were being taken to turn the planned Bunso campus of the University of Environment and Sustainable Development into an independent university dedicated to the study of Engineering.

“I also indicated that construction of this campus will begin within the next three(3) months. As you already know, President Akufo-Addo does not make promises he cannot fulfil, and I am happy that we are all gathered here at Bunso to cut the sod for the construction of the University of Engineering and Agricultural Sciences, which will be the Centre of Excellence in Engineering, Agricultural Sciences, Applied Sciences and Built Environment,” the President said.

Addressing the gathering, the Prez stated that energy, agriculture, medicine and health, clean air and water, transportation, sanitation, the use, management and conservation of natural resources – all are based ultimately on science and technology.

“So it is obvious that to be a part of this modern world, there must be science and technology elements at all levels of he development process. This means that a country’s development depends on its ability to understand, adapt, produce and commercialise scientific and technological knowledge in ways appropriate to its culture, and level of development,” he added.

When completed, the President state that UEAS will be the second public university in the Eastern Region, which will focus on satisfying human resource demands from domestic industries.
