KNUST students to enjoy Wi-Fi off-campus soon

Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) students would be enjoying Wi-Fi off-campus soon.

The 5GB bandwidth cap now available to the university community will be taken off, according to Emmanuel Nii Okaidza Afful, director of University Information Technology Services (UITS).

“There should be access available to students wherever they are, whether they are on or off campus.

“Through the Vodafone bundle provided, you have bandwidth but it’s limited. The idea is, this will practically take off the cap. Once you’re on it you consume the band,” he disclosed.

The university’s strategic plan includes provisions for adequate connectivity for both staff and students.

He was presenting as a part of the KNUST E-learning Center’s inaugural e-learning week celebrations.

The week-long KNUST e-learning week is a festival that includes a variety of events designed to raise awareness of e-learning within the University.

Prof. Mrs. Rita Akosua Dickson, vice chancellor of KNUST, expressed her satisfaction with the university’s accomplishment in the digital sphere. She believed that the rest of the country would follow in that regard.

However, the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) through the Auditor-General’s (A-G) report has revealed the school runs over 200 unaccredited programmes.

The report, dated June 1, 2022, is directed to Mr. Alban Bagbin, Speaker of Parliament.

Some academic programs provided by the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) have not received accreditation, according to the Auditor-General’s report for 2021.

“Out of the 360 programs administered by the University, only 61 have been accredited,” the report’s findings state. “190 have been referred to the National Accreditation Board (NAB) for accreditation and reaccreditation, and 109 have not yet been forwarded to NAB for accreditation.”

The Auditor-General has therefore “recommended to Management to cease running programmes that are not accredited or having its accredited certificates expired, until they are accredited or renewed, to avoid sanctions by NAB.”
