First-year engineering students at Kumasi Technical Institution (KsTU) have demonstrated their abilities by developing and moulding working coal pots as part of their academic projects, which the institution calls "a remarkable display of ingenuity and collaboration".


The students in the Automotive Engineering degree went beyond what was taught in the classroom to investigate creative solutions.

Gladys Cobbinah and her associates spearheaded the team's endeavour to shape the coalpots.

According to a release by the University Relations Office on its website, "their commitment and cooperation were evident as they successfully presented their creation to the University Management."

Gladys Cobbinah conveyed her appreciation for the University's Engineering Department's steadfast support.

She emphasised how their teamwork enabled them to turn a concept into a workable invention. 


"We created this coal pot with the help of our department and my other coworkers. It's evidence of the university's dedication to supporting hands-on learning," Cobbinah said.

The coal pots were given to the Registrar and his staff, demonstrating the pupils' practical knowledge.

These creative coal pots would be thoughtfully given out to the university employees. It went on to say that this not only demonstrated the students' inventiveness but also offered the university community a long-term answer.

In a brief ceremony, the coal pots were accepted by the university's registrar, Mr. Ebenezer Kofi Boakye. He appreciated the students' work and underlined the need to foster an innovative and creative culture inside the university.

Kumasi Technical University is still a centre for progressive education, encouraging students to contribute to real-world problems and think beyond the classroom. These first-year students' accomplishment in building working coal pots is a motivating illustration of the university's dedication to encouraging creativity and hands-on learning.
