"GTUC vision is to be the centre of academic excellence providing training in technology oriented education to meet the needs of Ghana and the sub-region."
Ghana Telecom University College (GTUC) is a new university for the new Ghana.
The Ghana of today is rich with tradition and culture, and with talented men and women who have been shaped by this heritage. The new Ghana, the Ghana that has decided to join the global economy, has to help its citizens develop the skills and knowledge they need to take part in the new economy. GTUC is dedicated to this mission.
The new economy is a knowledge economy, a globalized network economy made possible by the new information and communication technologies (ICTs). For Ghanaian organizations to operate successfully in this economy they need mid- and high-level professionals who can plan, organize, operate, maintain and manage these telecommunication and ICT-based services.
The graduates of GTUC’s certificate and degree programs will have the theoretical knowledge and hands-on experience that will equip them for successful careers in the telecommunication and ICT industries, and as ICT professionals in any Ghanaian business or organization needing ICT talent.
The focus on preparing graduates for the telecommunications and ICT professions will be the hallmark of GTUC. Like all universities, however, it is committed research and public service, and as part of its leadership commitment it will explore ways to accelerate the use of the new technologies to bring jobs and income to village Ghana and West Africa.
The university has established two core faculties: the Faculty of Telecommunications Engineering and the Faculty of Informatics. Both faculties will offer programmes at the certificate, degree, and post-graduate level. Credits earned in a certificate programme will be applicable to the bachelor’s degree program. And bachelor’s degree programmes will prepare students for post-graduate study. And programmes at every level will prepare students for meaningful and rewarding careers that contribute to the nation’s economic growth and social well-being.
