Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) to introduce Tek TV station

The Department of Communication Design (DECODE) of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) is set to commission multimedia laboratories of the university’s premier TV station, Tek TV.
In the Tek TV brochure copied to, the commissioning is scheduled to be held on Thursday, June 16, 2016 at the Faculty of Arts (Old site) at 9:00am.
Among the dignitaries to grace the occasion are Prof. William Otto Ellis (KNUST Vice Chancellor) and Hon. Dr. Edward Omane-Boamah (Minister for Communications).
The station

The Tek TV will operate a number of channels to primarily serve the interest of KNUST students, other educational institutions and the people of Ghana.
The television station setup in the Communication Design Department of KNUST will be mainly be run by staff, students, and service personnel of the institutions.
The programme content will be in line with KNUST and Tek TV’s values including harnessing leadership in innovation and technology, promotion of diversity and equal opportunity for all, pursuit of culture of excellence, and developing creativity and local talents.
The Tek TV station has multimedia laboratories and studios which are equipped with professional cameras, lighting and post production equipment.
The department
In this era of digitization, the Department of Communication Design, with the support of the Vice
Chancellor, continues to step up its vision, mission and mandate by taking advantage of the technological advancement to advance its course.
One area of advancement is to train and equip its graduates to champion educational broadcasting. Such decision was to augment the teaching and learning capabilities of the department and its graduates.
Establishing a television broadcast on the university campus was also to contribute towards the human resource capacity building of its multimedia students.

The department, and for that matter the university in general, is of the view that having its own television station will strengthen its capacity to give real life training to students.
