Wednesday, February 4th, 2009
12:05-1:00pm in Science Room 101
A light lunch (pizza and drinks) will be served.
Globalization has taken on a characteristic that emphasizes that no continent, no nation, can be left behind as the world advances in technological development. This requires that the technology gap between developed and developing nations has to be bridged. This forms the basis for Dr. Ofosu’s work with two universities in Ghana: the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) and the University of Cape Coast (UCC).
