Welcome message from vc

It is my great pleasure as Vice-Chancellor to warmly welcome you to the University of Energy and Natural Resources (UENR), the University of Technologians. As a promising academic institution in the Bono, Bono East and Ahafo Regions of Ghana, UENR has made outstanding strides in its first decade of existence. Having commenced in August 2012 with just 154 students enrolled in two schools, namely, the Schools of Engineering, and Natural Resources, UENR currently has over 11,000 students from Ghana and abroad enrolled in seven schools. These schools offer state-of-the-art, cutting-edge multidisciplinary postgraduate, undergraduate and diploma programmes in a host of fields such as Renewable Energy, Natural Resources, Agriculture, Science and Engineering.

Your informed choice to study at UENR provides you with the opportunity to be part of a full-fledged university with the core mandate to provide higher education, disseminate knowledge, and undertake research in energy and natural resources. UENR aspires to be named among the best internationally recognised universities in Africa and beyond in these areas which are sine qua nons for quality life. I assure you as a student of UENR in these trying times of covid-19 that your life is of utmost priority to us. The University’s environment for teaching and learning is safe for academic activities as covid-19 protocols are strictly adhered to and handled as a life-and-death matter. The University is endowed with competent teaching, administrative and professional staff to equip you with critical skills and productive reflection for both academic life and the job market.

I am happy to invite you from every part of Ghana, Africa and the world to take advantage of this opportunity and be a part of the unique UENR Experience, which is built on the bedrock that excellence goes beyond the borders of skill to embrace attitude. Connect with us and let us forge a great alliance for our country and humanity.
