Description

OUR STORY
The University of Energy and Natural Resources (UENR) was established by an Act of Parliament, Act 830, 2011 on December 31, 2011. The University is a public funded national institution which seeks to provide leadership and management of energy and natural resources and be a centre of excellence in these critical areas. The University approaches its programmes and research emphasizing interdisciplinary collaboration and taking into account, areas such as economics, law and policy, management, science, technology and engineering as well as social and political issues affecting energy and natural resources.

Prior to the passing of the bill establishing the University into law, the then President, the late Prof. J.E.A Mills set up a National Task Force Planning Committee on  January 8, 2010 with the mandate to develop, organize and supervise the implementation of the programme for the establishment of the two new Universities at Volta and Brong Ahafo Regions. The 24-member Task Force was chaired by Prof. Samuel Kofi Sefah-Dedeh, a former Dean of the Faculty of Engineering Services, University of Ghana with Hon. Dr. Christina Amoako-Nuamah of the Office of the President, Castle Osu as the convener.

Following the recommendations of the Committee, the former President, Prof. J.E.A Mills cut the sod for the commencement of the University at Sunyani on February 8, 2011.  The Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology also handed over its campus of Faculty of Forest Resources Technology to the UENR at a colorful ceremony at Sunyani on June 7, 2012. The University currently operates under the following schools below ;

  • School of Engineering
  • School of Sciences
  • School of Geosciences
  • School of Agriculture and Technology
  • School of Natural Resources
  • School of Graduate Studies

  4. Partnership with stakeholders in skills and knowledge generation and application

The University Of Energy and Natural Resources is a multi campus set-up and currently has three campuses located in Sunyani, Nsoatre and Dormaa Ahenkro. The Sunyani campus which is approximately 85 acres is home to the School of Sciences; School of Natural Resources; School of Graduate Studies and the Main Administration of the University as well as the University Library.

The School of Engineering would be located at the Nsoatre campus which is approximately 2,000 acres. The School of Agriculture and Technology and Geosciences would be situated on approximately 2000 acres of land at the Dormaa campus. The University would also have four field training stations in Mim, Bronsankoro and Kyeraa for the Agriculture and Forest Resources Management students and one at Bui for Engineering students. The University hopes to become a centre of excellence for the training of scientists and technologians for Ghana and beyond.

University Of Energy and Natural Resources Logo and what it symbolizes

This logo is made up of a simple shield, a globe with the African Energy Symbol embedded in the background imposed on a flowing river.
The sides of the river represent the earth which is brown in color. This represents the petroleum products and other minerals stored in the earth’s crust and animals.

The river is blue color which represents water as the most abundant resource on the planet.

The yellow, green and brown colours signify recycling and conservation of our natural resources which is the University’s core mandate.

The motto of the University is (Knowledge integrity impact). Each word stands on its own without full stops and commas.

The meaning of the colours are as follows;

The blue stands for loyalty and confidence.

Green is for growth and productivity.

Brown is for humility, simplicity, dependability, steadfastness, friendliness and good health.

The yellow stands for wealth, wisdom and highly networked faculty.

The University of Energy and Natural Resources stands for these great attributes of the colours in the Logo.
