About Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology

Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology has a history that dates back to 1951 when the Kumasi College of Technology was established. In 1961 the college was granted full university status and it became Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology.

The university is located in Kumasi, a city in southern Ghana. Kumasi is the capital of the Ashanti Region and is the second largest city in Ghana after Accra, the capital.

There are six colleges within the university: the college of agriculture and natural resources, college of art and built environment, college of humanities and social sciences, college of engineering, college of health sciences and the college of science. These colleges are comprised of faculties, which are subdivided into departments offering a range of undergraduate and graduate degree programmes.

In 1974 the Board of Graduate Studies was established to provide further education to students looking to specialise in science and technology. In 2000 the board was given the status of a school and has since been developing graduate programmes that contribute to the economic, scientific, technological and social advancement of Ghana.

Outside of the classroom students are encouraged to get involved in the university’s extracurricular activities. There are currently more than 100 student groups and organisations on campus but this number is increasing every year as students start new clubs to fit their interests.
