Professor Edward Ayensu, the Chairman of the AIT Board of Trustees in his address to the congregation, reported that efforts in all the directions towards the mission to deliver quality university education and facilitate cutting-edge research work at this University are proceeding according to plan.

He thus assured the Congregation, and all stakeholders, that AIT shall not relent in its efforts to ensure the full fulfillment of that vision.

The initial remarks by the Chairman of the Board of Trustees was followed by the Address of the President of AIT to the Board of Trustees and this Congregation.

He highlighted that AIT is currently doing Ph.D. research work in Engineering, Information Technology, Education, and Business Administration with an enrollment of a number of the academic and senior administrative staff of almost all the public and private universities in Ghana.

He underscored how achieving such a feat within the span of ten years is nothing short of an academic marvel given the fact that AIT has successfully offered, run, and graduated students on an internationally benchmarked Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) degree program within a context where the Ph.D. per capita of Ghana is extremely low.

He concluded his speech by encouraging the graduating class to avail themselves and make the best of all opportunities that may come their way after their graduation.

He assured those planning to pursue graduate studies at either the Master’s or the Ph.D. level of an enriched academic life and experience at AIT, should they choose to enroll with their Alma Mater.

In line with this entry protocol, staff and visitors or clients are to present acceptable evidence which is: COVID-19 Vaccination Card, any identification card connecting the holder to the vaccination card, preferably the National Identity Card; Driver’s Licence or International Passport.

This stipulation is to ensure, among others, that staff or visitors do not present vaccination cards that belong to other individuals.

JAMB in its bulletin said from available statistics from relevant agencies, the virus is spreading like wildfire, hence the clarion call for all to be vigilant, observe all protocols, and for institutions, be it public or private, to adopt relevant protocols to nip the spread of the virus in the bud.
