The Council for Technical and Vocational Education and Training (COTVET) has presented 60 computers and other equipment to the Takoradi Polytechnic for the training of petrochemical, fluid and hydraulic technicians.
This was announced in a press release issued by the Polytechnic on Friday.
The equipment included two heavy-duty copiers, one heavy-duty printer and two servers, which would be installed in the Electrical and Mechanical Engineering Laboratories.
Professor Daniel Nyarko, Rector of the Polytechnic, expressed his appreciation to the COTVET and the Ministry of Education for gesture.
He said the equipment would help the Polytechnic train technicians with the requisite skills to work effectively and efficiently.
Professor Nyarko said 30 of the computers would be used to establish a petrochemical laboratory to train technicians in Process Engineering, Instrumental and Control Engineering.
He said the other computers will be used to set up a fluid and hydraulics laboratory to deal with problems associated with the flow of fluids through pipes or in open channels and other devices for the control or use of liquids.
