The Madina Institute of Science and Technology (MIST), on Tuesday pledged to churn out well-trained graduates for the job market.

Professor Abdulai Salifu Asuro, the President of the University, who made this known at a press conference, said the Institution had partnered strategic industrial players to facilitate internship opportunities for students to learn after school.

He said the Institute was keen on training graduates in integrated arts and science and technology to contribute to Ghana’s industrial growth as well as that of Africa.

He mentioned some of the institutions the MIST was in partnership with as Japan Motors Trading Company Limited, the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research, the Ghana Highways Authority, Accra Technical University and the Takoradi Technical University.

Prof Asuro said the Institute was established by the Madina Foundation for Science and Technology (MFST); a not-for-profit organisation established to provide quality tertiary education to the millions of individuals who aspire to acquire advance knowledge in science and technology.

Prof Asuro said the Institute commenced academic work in 2017 with the School of Engineering, the School of Business and Technology and a Centre for Professional Development.
He said the MIST would soon start the School of Liberal Arts and Sciences and that of Nursing.

“The Institute has a diversity policy meant to broaden and deepen its intellectual horizons, preparing students, staff, and faculty heads to cherish inclusiveness, thoughtfulness and responsible contributions in a diverse world.”

Prof Asuro said the Institute was the brain child of Mr Nasser Mansour Mohammed, an Egyptian philanthropist, who had the needy in society at heart and was determined to make tertiary education affordable and readily accessible.

The MIST provides undergraduate degree programmes that are technology-enriched to enable students to respond to the needs of the evolving workplace and community.
