Takoradi Technical University TTU Liaison
The Industrial Liaison and Career Development Office is a department within the Takoradi Technical University that is charged with the responsibility of co-ordinating industrial attachment/internship programmes and industrial visits (field trips) for staff and students in the University.
The cardinal goal of the Department is to ensure a smooth transition of the theoretical knowledge acquired by students in the lecture halls into the World of Work (WoW). The office is also responsible for the placement of staff and students in related industries or organisations to enable them acquaint themselves with current technological transformations in the work environment.

- help equip staff and students with the practical skills and knowledge in their major fields of study, via practical industrial training;
- assist staff and students to acquire the behavioural skills appropriate for the World of Work through hands-on-learning programmes;
- prepare students for job placement after completion of their programmes;
- encourage students to acquire and practice relevant entrepreneurial skills via practical attachment programmes and guest lessons; and
- ensure that our students are preferred to all other students for employment opportunities.
