I am very fulfilled and happy with my contribution to the growth of education – Prof Elsie Kaufmann

Ghanaian biomedical engineer and Quiz Mistress of the National Science and Maths Quiz professor Elsie Kaufmann in an exclusive interview with Deloris Frimpong Manso on the Delay show expressed her worry on how difficult it has been for students to transition beautiful ideas (projects) into commercial use.

According to her, she has supervised a lot of mind blowing projects from her department as professor and is expecting those ideas to materialize but very unfortunate students have little or no avenues to support those projects.

When asked on why a lot of students are very good in class with projects but haven’t invented anything after school, she stress on the need for students to reason beyond classrooms and academics, putting into practice what have been taught, for that is the only way change can be made.

“I have seen and supervised beautiful projects in my department but the problem has always been how to transition those ideas into commercial use and to me that has been very worrying, professor Elsie Kaufmann told Delay.

On the show, recounting how far she has come as professor and a quiz mistress, revealed that she is very fulfilled and happy for the growth she has contributed and making the difference especially as a woman in the field of biomedical Engineering.

Prof. Elsie Effah Kaufmann is an Associate Professor and founding Head of the Department of Biomedical Engineering, University of Ghana. She holds a Bachelor of Science in Engineering (BSE), a Master of Science in Engineering (MSE) and a PhD in Bioengineering, all from the University of Pennsylvania, USA.
