Vice Chancellor of Bells University of Technology, Ota, Prof. Isaac Adeyemi, has charged freshmen of the institution to be focused and rise up to the challenges and rigours posed by tertiary education.
Adeyemi, who spoke at the university’s 11th matriculation ceremony, which took place recently, advised the new students to brace up and take such challenges as necessary hurdles that must be scaled with courage and sheer determination.
Adeyemi, a fellow of the Academy of Sciences, further admonished the new students saying hard work, focus and diligence would certainly pay off handsomely as the university offers scholarships to the best students in each of the colleges (faculties) at the end of each academic year. This is besides the prizes also awarded to deserving students across the departments and colleges at the end of their programmes.
Adeyemi, who informed the students and their parents that all the courses offered by the institution were fully accredited by the National Universities Commission (NUC) added, “Bells University of Technology, in affiliation with the Joint Preliminary Examinations Board (JUPEB), has commenced a foundation degree programmes (specifically) in the sciences, engineering and management sciences.”
He added that: “Students who are successful in the JUPB examinations would be granted admission into 200-level of relevant university degree programmes.”
The vice chancellor, who enjoined the students to actively participate in extra-curricular activities so as to hone their talents, also reminded them that what they seek at this level of education woud contribute immensely to shaping their future hence the need for them not to toy with it, more so when “globalisation has made it imperative for students and graduates to empower themselves for the highly competitive job market, by acquiring additional skills and professional certifications.”
He added that it was in the light of this that the university has on campus, an accredited centre, ATLAS, which prepares students for professional examinations in accounting and personnel management. “Similarly, the Skills Development and Resource Centre (SDRC) is coming on stream to avail the students hands-on training on several significant areas of the economy such as mechatronics, marine engineering, ship repairs, negotiations and fashion design for mass production”
