The Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) General Overseer, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, has announced the establishment of the Redeemer’s College of Technology and Management (RECTEM), a new polytechnic established by the church to raise champions in the field of technology and management.
Adeboye, who made the announcement at the just-concluded 2018 December retreat at the church’s headquarters, said: “The Redeemer’s College of Technology and Management is now open here at the Redemption Camp. So, if you are interested in technology or management, this is your opportunity. Tell your friends or relatives. By the grace of God, this particular College of Technology is extremely well-equipped.”
The Rector of the College, Prof. Adedeji Daramola, who reiterated that the students would benefit from both rigorous academic and practical training at the college, said: “RECTEM is fundamentally unique from similar institutions by virtue of its vigorous involvement in research and development in technology, through its set pattern of exploratory innovation outside the traditional classroom environment.”
The students, he said, will learn through simulations in an interdisciplinary setting such that they will develop the ability and passion to work wisely, creatively and effectively for the betterment of humanity and ensuring global relevance.He added that the college has a strategic study plan that focuses on learning by doing and combining liberal, professional and industrial education.
“The college will enjoy a 24-hour power supply, courtesy of a twin-turbine power generation plant, in addition to other facilities like batching plants, banks, advanced computer centre, medical centre, hostels and others.“All programmes of the college have been approved by the National Board for Technical Education (NBTE), the regulatory body in charge of polytechnics in Nigeria,” the rector stressed.
