His words:  “We appreciate the confidence, with the promise that we will continue to provide solid education in an environment of best global practices. With the fresh approval, the third faculty (i.e. Faculty of Environmental Sciences and Management) is being consolidated, since we have already consolidated in the Faculty of Engineering and Technology as well as the Faculty of Natural and Applied Sciences.”
