Information reaching hypeghnewsroom has it that, the Vice-Chancellor Of UCC has commissioned the School of Business Building and a state-of-the-art Data Centre at the North campus.
With about 2-days left on his tenure of office, the Vice Chancellor of the University of Cape Coast has commissioned all projects completed under his watch as VC.
He commissioned a multi-million Lecture Complex and couple of days ago and he has commissioned the new School of Business Office Complex and a new Data Centre.
Speaking at the commissioning of the School of Business Building, the Vice-Chancellor commended the School for making judicious use of its Internally Generated Fund (IGF) to put up their own office complex.
Again, he encouraged other departments in the University to emulate the example of the School.
In his comments at the opening of the Data Centre, the Vice-Chancellor noted that the new Network Operating Centre (NOC) had been furnished to deliver quality internet services to the University Community.
“The old NOC was in bad shape and could not meet the expectations of the University so we relocated it to this place and augmented the equipment, especially the servers to meet the needs of the University,” he explained.
In addition, Prof. Ampiah noted that the Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) control room was also established to enhance security and track the activities of criminals on campus.
Moving on, he disclosed that the University had purchased 300 pieces of high-resolution CCTV cameras and installed at vantage places on the entire campus. Prof. Ampiah indicated that the Centre served as the hub for monitoring of every nook and cranny of the University.
“From here, the security officers will monitor every activity going on at all times,” he noted.
He said they were working hand-in-hand with the Security Section to train their officers to manage the CCTV monitoring room.
Mr. Sam indicated that a fire suppression system had been fixed at the centre to automatically prevent fire from destroying the equipment.
He said the next phase of the project was to improve the faculty networks and to make sure that they were in good shape so that they can easily integrate it into the system.
