The Ghana Institution of Engineering (GhIE) inducted 42 members into the Occupational Group of Professional Engineers at the RWESCK building in KNUST on Monday June 20, 2022.
The inductees included 16 from the Electrical/ Electronic Technical Division, 13 from the Civil Technical Division, 5 from the Chemical/ Mining Technical Division, and 8 from Mechanical Technical Division.
The President of the Institution, Ing. Rev. Prof. Charles Adams urged government to employ registered engineers in the MMDAs to ensure quality delivery of engineering works.
“Government must ensure that anyone who works at the municipalities or assemblies are registered and qualified as an engineer.”
“The law stipulates that craftsmen should also be professionalized so that in their practice, they will uphold standards,”.
The President admonished the government to support the GhIE to help build resilient systems.
The Immediate Past President, Ing. Leslie Ayeh advised the engineers to carry out their mandate to impact society.
“We need to be able to improve upon the things we came to meet. What’s your role in transforming society? The challenge is on us to ensure we become game-changers,”.
The Executive Director, Ing. David Nyante, admonished the engineers to produce local materials to lessen the nation’s dependency on foreign products.
