The Kumasi Technical University is in collaboration with the The Ghana Association of Garages at Suame Magazine for what can be of mutual benefit for both sides.
The tie between industry and academia would lead to unveiling income generating avenues for the youth and for that matter job opportunities.
Owing to this, some executives and members of the Suame Magazine Garages were hosted and conducted round the engineering workshops of the Adako Jachie Campus of the Kumasi Technical University to see at first hand some sophisticated machines installed for purposes of boosting mass production and job creation.
Speaking to the media in an interview, the Vice Dean of Engineering at the University Dr Owusu Ansah was of the view that the bond between the two institutions if strengthened could lead to a drastic reduction in importation of outmobile parts as well as machine parts since they would be able to produce them locally.
He said both parties are expected to bring their rich expertise to bare as well as vast experiences in order to achieve this. Some of the newly install requirements include milling outmotives, machine designs electronic among others.
