Tamale Technical University began as a Trades Training Centre in 1951 and then became the Government Training School in 1954. It was converted to a junior Technical institute in 1960.
The School was elevated to a Polytechnic in August 23, 1992 and now to the statutes of a Technical University, in 2016. As a result of the Educational Reform Programme and the enactment of the PNDC Law 321 in 1992, Tamale Technical University was elevated to tertiary status together with Accra, Kumasi, Ho, Cape Coast and Takoradi Polytechnics. The Polytechnic now trains students up to the Post Graduate level, with provisions to mount second degree programmes soon.

I have always felt that I was so lucky to be a student at Tamale Technical University, and not at any other private or public schools. The thing I admire the most about Tamale Technical University is the support I received from everyone at the school. I wouldn’t have been able to achieve what I have achieved without that caring environment.
