Cape Coast Technical University CCTU Logo
Cape Coast Technical University was established in 1984 as a second cycle institution. In 1986, it operated under the administration of Ghana Education Service to offer intermediate courses leading to the award of non-tertiary certificates. In 1992, the University was upgraded to tertiary level by PNDCL 321 to run programmes for the award of the Higher National Diplomas. The new Polytechnic Act of 2007, Act 745 has given the University the mandate to run degree programs.
Cape Coast Technical University is situated about 5km from the Pedu Traffic Lights off the main road linking Cape Coast and Twifu Praso.
The vision of Cape Coast Technical University is to be a leading Technical University in Ghana that offers high quality career-oriented vocational and technical education for national development.
As enshrined in our motto “Nyimdzee na Nkyerekyere ma Nyansa” literally explained as “Knowledge and Education culminate in Wisdom,” Cape Coast Technical University has as its mission to provide increasing access to tertiary education for all people who have a yearning to acquire a hands-on training for academic and professional excellence.
