Unitech Making Progress For Resumption of 2016 Academic Year

The PNG University of Technology Administration is progressing towards the resumption of classes later this month.

The temporary mess facility has been prepared for students use when they return to the campus on the 24th of this month.

The University of Technology is preparing to begin the academic year again after it came to an abrupt end when a student was killed on campus.

The finishing touches are being made to the union hall that will be a temporary messing facility, replacing the old one that got burnt down at night on the 25th of June, when a student got killed.

The mess was burnt down after a first year student was attacked while asleep in his dorm resulting in the immediate closure of the university the next day.

Today, the University comes closer to resuming the 2016 academic year.

The messing facility was the only set back that needed managing, but the Unitech administration has resolved the matter.

With overwhelming support from Senior Statesman and Chancellor, Sir Nagora Bogan, Vice Chancellor, Dr. Albert Schram who is away in Japan meeting with Japanese Universities for future programs said the academic year would continue.

The Unitech administration has been working ever since the campus closure to resume the academic year.

The Unitech Academic Board met on the 27th of last month, and have approved the calendar leading up to the arrival of students on the 24th.
