BRIEF HISTORY OF SUNYANI TECHNICAL UNIVERSITY

Sunyani Polytechnic has now been converted to Sunyani Technical University (STU) with redefined mandate to provide higher education in engineering, science, and technology based disciplines, and technical and vocational education and training, applied arts and related disciplines. This is clearly stated in the Technical Universities Act, 2016 Act 992 passed by the Parliament of the Republic of Ghana and assented to by the President of Ghana on 31st August, 2016.

This conversion has presented the institution with a unique opportunity to reposition itself and elevate technical and vocational education and training as a key provider of highly trained critical human resources for industry to spur on national development. It has also created a clear progression and career path and development for graduates of technical and vocational institutions in the country. Hitherto, such graduates were absorbed midway into mainstream research focused traditional university education, and thus truncating the practical education and training they had received.

Consequent to this new development, STU has submitted several uniquely crafted 4-year Bachelor of Technology programmes to the appropriate national bodies for approval and accreditation as required. These programmes will be offered in addition to the 2-year Bachelor of Technology top-ups for HND graduates and other qualified persons. STU will also continue to run technician and other non-tertiary certificated craft programmes already in existence. Preparations are also underway to seek accreditation for the running of Master of Technology and Doctor of Technology programmes in the forseable future.
