The C. K. Tedam University of Technology and Applied Sciences (CKT-UTAS) was established by an Act of Parliament ACT 1000(2019) which came into effect on the 27th Day of May 2021.
CKT-UTAS was named after a Ghanaian Politician, Patriot and Statesman, Clement Kubindewor Tedam from the royal family of Paga in the Upper East Region of Ghana.
The mandate of the University as spelt out in the parent Act is to Disseminate Knowledge related to Theory and Practical Development in Integrated Technology and Applied Sciences.
The Governing Council and Management Team of the newly established CKT-UTAS were inaugurated amid the COVID-19 Pandemic.
Professor Gordon Awandare, Professor Eric Magnus Wilmot, Dr V.A. Ankamah-Lomotey and Mr. Anaamoatulim Anab are the founding Governing Council Chairman, Vice-Chancellor, Registrar, and Director of Finance respectively.
