In a related development, Consular Officers of the Canadian High Commission in Ghana visited the Catholic University to meet the Vice-Chancellor and his Management team for discussions on areas of possible bilateral collaboration. In his welcoming address, Professor Daniel Obeng-Ofori welcomed the team to the Catholic University, briefed them about the University’s programmes and catalogued a couple of future programmes it intends to roll out in the very nearest future and the required support needed for the programmes as follows:
1. Engineering: The Vice-Chancellor indicated that CUCG intends to develop Faculty of Engineering to run the following programmes:

  • Electrical and Renewable Energy Systems Engineering
  • Electronic and Telecommunication Engineering
  • Civil and Environmental Engineering
He added that CUCG will require support in the areas of :
  • Engineering laboratory
  • Equipment and
  • Staff training

2. Medical School: He further hinted that the University intends to start a medical school and requires:

  • Medical laboratory
  • Staff training and
  • Equipment

3. Law School: Again, the Vice-Chancellor said plans are far advanced for CUCG to establish Law School. He further indicated that this will require a law library and staff training. He concluded that the University was ready to collaborate with the Canadian High Commission in areas of mutual interest.

In her response, Ms Susana Serwaa Ofosu, Consular Officer of the High Commission of Canada sought clarifications on how international students are assisted in terms of their accommodation and security on campus for which clarification was given. For her part, she said, the High Commission has a number of specialised departments, so her team will submit a report on the meeting and link the appropriate departments to Faculties, Schools, Departments and Centers in CUCG for further discussion on possible areas of collaboration.
