Posted on: 09 November 2017


KAAF University College has held its Matriculation and Orientation of freshmen and women for the 2017/2018 Academic Year.

The Rector of the University, Dr. Francis Achampong, used the occasion to formally welcome the matriculants to KAAF University College and announced to them that with their matriculation today, Thursday, 9th November, 2017, they are now full members of the University fraternity.

He congratulated them for having been admitted into a unique tertiary institution that offers its students a wide range of learning opportunities, has a tradition of hardwork, pursues excellence, and aims at developing industry-ready graduates. He mentioned the programmes being offered by the University which included Engineering, Business Administration, Law, Nursing and Computer Science. He further stated that, because of the varied nature of programmes being offered by the University, the University is currently affiliated to the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) as a mentor institution for Business Administration and Engineering programmes, to the Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration (GIMPA) for the Law programme, and the University for Development Studies (UDS) for the Nursing and Computer Science programmes. The matriculants were admitted into the following undergraduate programmes;

  1. Engineering - with options in Civil, Mechanical, Electrical/Electronic, Geomatic and Construction Technology,
  2. Business Administration - with options in Accounting, Banking and Finance, Marketing, Insurance, Human Resource Management and Enterpreneurship,
  3. Law,
  4. Nursing and
  5. Computer Science.

The Rector continued by drawing the attention of the matriculants to the fact that University education is not cheap, which means that their parents/guardians, and in some cases the matriculants themselves make tremendous sacrifices (financial and otherwise) for their education and advised them to work hard and diligently to ensure that the objectives for being at the University are achieved. He assured them that all the lecturers and staff of the University administration are available to help them succeed and hoped that they take advantage of that and make the best of their time spent as they pursue their studies that will help develop their careers for the service of their families, communities, and the world at large. He told them to remember that they need to succeed for others, if not for themselves, and that how they exit the University College will depend on the effort they put into their studies beginning right from their first semester. He went on to entreat them to avoid falling into bad company which has ruined otherwise potentially worthy lives and make friends with quality people, those who can teach them, challenge and encourage them, and learn from such people. He also advised them to build and guard their integrity jealously because having integrity allows you to base your decisions and actions on your moral beliefs, for no real success can be achieved without integrity.

He concluded by reminding the matriculants that their future would always be determined by their actions and they should endeavour to do the right and honest thing always, study hard and play smart, adding that these actions when followed on a consistent basis will assure them a bright and promising future. He then congratulated and wished them a fruitful period at KAAF University College.
