Three University of Ghana Students, Samuella Chiakwor Otuteye, Philip Fiifi Ghanney and Caleb Senyo Ansah have received prestigious award from the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).
The award ceremony which came up in Vienna, Austria saw the three Biomedical Engineering students recognise for their unwavering dedication, academic excellence and exceptional contribution to the field of environment, science, technology and innovation.
The team comprising the three Biomedical Engineering students focused on Nuclear Science to design a situation for cancer management while raising awareness about Nuclear Sciences’ diverse potential applications.
Speaking, Otuteye, one of the three students, expressed, “Our primary objective was to raise awareness and dispel the misconception that Nuclear Science is solely associated with atomic bomb explosions and warfare.”
“We aim to debunk myths surrounding Nuclear Science and technology, particularly in Africa, emphasizing its advantages. As Biomedical Engineering students, our focus was on cancer management, providing insights into the relevant steps involved.”
Reacting, the Dean of the School of Engineering Sciences Professor Elsie Effah Kaufmann said, “…it is a testament to the creativity of these students to be able to put in a winning entry…it was a pleasure to work with them.”
Kaufman added that the win was a big plus for University of Ghana, the school of Engineering Sciences, and the Department of Biomedical Engineering.
