Students Interview Materials Researchers at University of Ghana, Legon

2007-2008 has been a memorable year: a sabbatical leave from Penn State University enabled me to spend the academic year at the Federal University of Minas Gerais, Belo Horizonte, Brazil, and the University of Ghana, Legon. At Legon I taught a course in the newly established Faculty of Engineering Sciences: MSEN 325--Materials and the Future. As part of that course, students identified faculty doing materials research, and armed with a simple digital camera, set out to interview 6 of them. The interviews are posted below:

Prof. Edmund Osae, Dept. of Physics

Dr. R. Kwadjo, Dept. of Physics

Prof. Adanu Dept. of Physics

Mr. Lucas Damoah, Materials Science & Engineering

Prof. D. K. Asiedu, Department of Geology

Dr. Elsie Effah Kaufmann, Dept. of Biomedical Engineering

Kwadwo, this is wonderful! There's lots of stuff I didn't know about materials research at UG and the people involved. The faculty/researchers are great, and the students are bright. I will be contacting some of the profs interviewed.

The AUST students were impressive as well. I need to learn about AUST to see if I can participate in some way.

Thanks for a job well done!

Thanks for your encouragement, Alex. The hope is that this blog can be a platform for conversations on materials and Africa.

Yes, please follow up on your interests in exploring developments at the University of Ghana and AUST.
