The Vice Chancellor, Prof J. S. Y. Kuma on behalf of the University of Mines and Technology (UMaT), Tarkwa, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Perez University College (Perez-UC) at a short ceremony held in the office of the Vice Chancellor. Prof J. Owusu Sekyere, the President of Perez-UC signed on behalf of the Perez University College.
The Vice Chancellor, Prof J. S. Y. Kuma, indicated to the team that the MoU was signed with the aim for UMaT to mentor and guide Perez-UC. He further said that there were enough reasons why their request to UMaT to collaborate with them was in the right direction. He highlighted some of the achievements of the University and why the MoU would yield maximum mutual benefits for the two institutions. Prof Kuma further said that they had made the right choice by coming to UMaT for this collaboration because UMaT was the best public funded University and the most compliant of the standards and norms of the National Accreditation Board (NAB) and National Council for Tertiary Education (NCTE) in Ghana today. He told the team that UMaT has the best Student-Teacher Ratio in science and engineering, a strong quality assurance system, practically oriented programmes, a very serene and a disciplined academic environment conducive for learning and a competitive school fees regime.
Prof Kuma further indicated to the team that, as a specialised institution that trains engineers, UMaT’s programmes are designed such that a balance is achieved between theory and practical exercises both in the laboratories and in the field. This balance is to enable our graduates to get the requisite hands-on skills to prepare them adequately to enter the world of work. According to Prof Kuma field trips are therefore arranged for all students to mining and allied industries and then during the vacation, a considerable number of students are able to secure attachment to some mining, petroleum and other allied industries for internship. 
Responding, the President of Perez-UC, Prof Owusu-Sekyere, indicated that Perez University College was grateful to UMaT for accepting to mentor her.  He said further that they found University of Mines and Technology (UMaT), Tarkwa as an ideal institution because according to him UMaT is a well established University in the country. The President said that he was very excited that they had come to give meaning to the discussions that had started sometime ago and was hopeful the MoU will bring mutual benefits to the two institutions going forward. 
Perez University College (Perez-UC), formerly Pan African Christian University College (PACUC) is an educational initiative of the Perez Chapel International with the vision to produce highly trained human resource through academic excellence, christian character development, commitment to knowledge, research and action. Perez Chapel International recently acquired PEREZ-UC, a brain child of Church of God World Missions. Located at Gomoa Pomadze – Winneba, PACUC was the first accredited private University College in the Central Region of Ghana.
The general objective of the MoU is to establish a framework and define guidelines for UMaT to mentor Perez-UC for the training of academically qualified and professionally competent engineers as stipulated under the guidelines for affiliation by the National Accreditation Board (NAB), Ghana. It is also to ensure that Perez-UC attains and maintains high standards for the promotion of academic quality in the fields of Computer Science and Engineering and Electrical and Electronic Engineering.  The MoU also stipulates that UMaT shall award Certificates to graduates of Perez-UC. 
Present at the signing ceremony from UMaT were the Pro Vice Chancellor of UMaT, Assoc Prof V. A. Temeng, the Dean of Planning and Quality Assurance Unit, Assoc Prof S. Al-Hassan and the Dean of the Office of International Programmes, Assoc Prof E. K. Asiam.
