CK. Tedam University of Technology & Applied Sciences
The C.K. Tedam University of Technology and Applied Sciences (CKT-UTAS) was established by an Act of Parliament (ACT 1000) which came into effect on 23rd August, 2019. It 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. This certainly posed serious challenges for the effective running of the University. For instance, the Vice -Chancellor who is the Chief Administrative Officer of the University performed his duties from the United States of America, owing to the restrictions on foreign travels at the time.
Professor Gordon Awandare, Professor Eric Magnus Wilmot, Dr V.A. Ankamah-Lomotey and Mr. Anaamoatulim Anab are foundation Governing Council Chairman, Vice -Chancellor, Registrar, and Director of Finance respectively.
At its Maiden Matriculation Ceremony held on Saturday 6th February,2021, it was reported that Two Hundred and Forty Nine (249) students had enrolled for various Diploma programmes while Five Hundred and Ninety Five (595) and Three Hundred and Thirty One (331) students had enrolled for various Undergraduate and Postgraduate programmes respectively.
Prior to gaining autonomous status, CKT-UTAS was one of four campuses of the University for Development Studies (UDS). As a campus, it housed the Faculty of Integrated Development Studies (FIDS), 1994-2002, Faculty of Applied Sciences (FAS), 2002 to date, Faculty of Mathematical Sciences (FMS), 2009 to date and Faculty of Earth and Environmental Sciences (FEES), 2017 to date. However, the School of Computing and information Sciences (SCIS), was curved out of the Faculty of Mathematical Sciences in 2020 under the newly established CKT-UTAS.
It is worth noting that the Faculties of Integrated Development Studies and Applied Sciences were relocated from Tamale/Nyankpala to Navrongo in 1994 and 2002 respectively. The Faculty of Integrated Development Studies was subsequently relocated to the Wa campus of UDS in the Upper West Region.
We for see the future to be very bright.
