RST Instruments, a Geotechnical Instrumentation and Monitoring Company from the United Kingdom has donated two Piezometers at a cost of USD2, 500 to the Department of Geological Engineering of the University of Mines and Technology (UMaT), Tarkwa. At a short ceremony to present the equipment to the University, the Instrumentation Specialist of RST Instruments, Mr Josh Smith indicated that, it was a privilege to be donating such important equipment to the University. According to him they were making the donation because UMaT was producing world class graduates who were doing very well at their work places. Mr Smith was hopeful that the donation of the equipment would enable the University to provide effective training for students in the Department of Geological Engineering. Mr Smith was accompanied by Mr Augustine Adoboe, Chief Executive Officer and Water and Sanitation Expert of AD Resources Limited and Dr S. S. Yirenky, the Chairman of UMaT Council. A piezometer is a small instrument designed for exploring and measuring water pressure/ water levels below the earth’s surface. It is described as a type of manometer. Piezometers are commonly used in special wells.

The Vice Chancellor, Prof J. S. Y. Kuma, responding, thanked Mr Smith for the gesture and assured him that the equipment would be used to the benefit of students and enhance research in the Department of Geological Engineering. He emphasised that the donation will also boost the desire of the University to train students with practical skills for the mining and allied industries.

Present at the ceremony were Assoc Prof V. A. Temeng, the Pro Vice Chancellor, Mr A. K. Doku, the Registrar of UMaT, Assoc Prof Michael Affam, the Head of Department of Geological Engineering and Mr Paul Yeboah, the University Relations Officer.
