I am deeply honored and humbled to serve as the Chancellor of FOMIC Polytechnic University (FPU). In this new prestigious position, I am committed to the quality of education offered at FPU, in both the Buea and Douala campuses.
I plan to bring my teaching, research, extension and outreach knowledge and expertise and to utilize my 33 years’ corporate and academic experiences to elevate FPU to the highest level of knowledge production and dissemination in Cameroon and entire Sub-Saharan African Region. With my vivid understanding of both the Anglo-Saxon and Francophone educational systems, my focus is to provide total quality assurance educational system in all our academic and professional programs with the goal of elevating FPU as #1 private institution of higher learning in the country and region.
Despite the crises caused by Covid-19 pandemic, our country’s economy is booming especially in the areas of new businesses and infrastructural development, thus, the need for well-trained qualified human resource professional needed in the various labor markets. To bridge these qualified labor shortages, FPU’s School of Business, Engineering and Medical Biomedical Sciences are preparing top notch students with hands-on experiences ready to fill the gap in the current and future job markets. We offer different levels and high-quality programs such as HNDs, B. Techs, BSc. and MBAs in our various schools.
Furthermore, given that our country and continent are highly agriculture base, FPU is ready to create a new International School of Agricultural Sciences and Bio Engineering. This school will train the badly needed future agricultural scientists, entrepreneurs and professionals to fill the huge gap. We will offer degrees courses for future scientists and certification and short refresher courses for professionals already in the field or those interested in new start-up ventures such as crop production using plasticulture, aquaponics, integrated rice farming and aquaculture cage fish farming to name a few.
I wish to express my appreciation to the Vice-Chancellor, the Rector and all the Professors and Staff for their leadership and effervescent commitment for excellence.
