The Ghana Engineering Students Association (GESA- KNUST) has applauded students for designing an application software to address challenges students of KNUST face with respect to accommodation. They are therefore entreating other students to emulate this or even do better.
Team ‘Idea Divine’ were adjudged winners of the 2014 edition of GESA markers’ faire which took place at the Engineering auditorium on the 10th of October, with an innovation to ensure easy allocation of rooms for students. This comes in the wake of predominant accommodation challenges facing students of KNUST and its attendant problems. Most students have lamented on the poor state of some hostels and exorbitant amounts charged by hostel administrators but insist their options are limited.
This new application according to the designers, will give students the opportunity to assess various hostels thoroughly before renting them. They also added that the initiative will give hostel administrators the opportunity to keep track of all residents.
The President of the Ghana Engineering Students Association, Precious Eshun Baidoo in an interview has applauded the initiative by the student group and is urging other students to emulate.
