He said inadequate funding was making it difficult to meet the demands on its services by the growing student enrollment.

Dr Andoh was addressing the 19th Congregation of the College of Technology Education of the university in Kumasi.

A total of 3,847 students received Masters and Bachelors? degrees and Diploma certificates in Business, Technology and other programmes offered at the college.

Two hundred and thirty three students who pursued Diploma in Education programme at the Cape Coast Polytechnic, under a collaborative programme between the university and the polytechnic, also graduated.

Dr Andoh said the College of Technology Education had been transformed into a premier institution for training of professionals in technology education and related fields in the West African sub-region.

The increasing number of graduates? year-after-year was indicative of its commitment to excellence and continued growth, he said.

He, however, pointed out that the rise in student admission and technical programmes would have to be matched with appropriate financial and material support.

Dr Andoh advised the graduating students to be humble, honest and exhibit high sense of integrity which, he said, were essential in the teaching profession.

Professor Akwasi Asabere-Ameyaw, the Vice Chancellor, advised the students to be hard working and to develop right attitudes at the workplace.

He said the university would continue to explore opportunities through innovative ways to equip its students with the right skills to tackle the challenges facing the society.
