Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), has opened an electronic library and a micro-electronic laboratory to deepen research and train engineering students.

Professor Mark Adom-Asamoah, Provost of the College, said the 30-seater capacity electronic library will provide students with electronic resourcesto boost academic work.

The micro-electronics laboratory was also meant to offer practical training in integrated circuit designs and manufacturing to students.

Prof. Adom-Asamoah also says, he is hopeful that the laboratory would help the students come out with innovative technological designs for the benefit of society.

Prof. Kwasi Obiri-Danso, Vice-Chancellor of the University, affirmed the resolve of the University to promote science and technology education.

This he said will help produce the critical manpower needed in those areas to spearhead the nation’s socio-economic growth.

He praised authorities of the College of Engineering for their sense of creativity.

According to him, they had over the years been instrumental in finding innovative means to fund most of their projects to enhance academic and administrative work.

The facilities he said were established through a collaborative effort of the College and Texas Instruments, a US-based technology company that specializes in designs and manufacturing of semi-conductor and various integrated circuits.
