Welcome to the web page of the Faculty of Applied Sciences and Technology, Tamale Technical University. Whether you are a first-semester freshman, a transfer student, or a prospective student browsing the web, let me welcome you to this page and thank you for spending time with an institution I hold dear. The FAST encompasses three academic Departments, namely: Department of Hospitality and Tourism Management, Department of Statistical Sciences, Department of Computer science. The FAST is well placed to make a difference in an ever-changing global society with an exponentially increasing dependence on applied science and technology.
FAST is a place where your journey will be nurtured, supported and deeply enriched by our highly talented staff. We are committed to excellence in undergraduate learning and teaching technologies, there has been an increasing demand for places in our faculty programmes. Applied research and innovation is a key driver of research across the Faculty.
On behalf of the Faculty of Applied Sciences and Technology (FAST) and the staff of the TaTU, I welcome you warmly to the Faculty, Tamale Technical University, and congratulate you on aspiring students securing a place to study in the best Technical University which is increasingly recognised as one of Ghana’s finest. We are the most attractive undergraduate destination in the north where we use hands and brains. You are entering the University at a time when there are many exciting developments taking place that will hopefully impact positively on you as students
Many colleges and universities speak of excellence today. At FAST, we emphasize excellence as well, but we do so in a way that I believe is richer and deeper than most if not all other Faculties of the university. We recognize that excellence can and should take a variety of forms. We are interested in shaping students not just toward intellectual excellence or spiritual excellence in isolation, but in all of the ways that matter to us as human beings. Your time here will be academically demanding but deeply rewarding if you are able to properly allocate time for your academic work and other activities. I wish you a happy stay in the FAST in particular and TaTU in General, and hope that you will be able to strike the right balance.
This is one of the main faculties of Tamale Technical University. The faculty envisions to provide an environment for excellence in teaching, learning and research in applied sciences and technology, and entrepreneurship for industrial and socio-economic development of Northern Ghana in particular, Ghana and Africa in totality.
Due to the technological revolution in the era of globalization, the content of any course that students now receive is subject to prompt obsolescence. Hence, the importance of giving students the ultimate ability of lifelong learning as urgently required in the labour market. Therefore, our curriculum and teaching methods are continuously evolving to help our courses continue to be relevant for our students and enable them to reach their full potential.
When students decide to apply to TaTU, as Dean of the faculty, I am responsible for a plethora of academic and co-curricular resources and administrative offices that usher our FAST students from admission to graduation. Not only do I oversee the academic quality, standards, and policies of FAST undergraduate education in the classroom but outside of it too. Once again, I say Welcome to TATU.
The vision of the Faculty of Applied Sciences and Technology is to provide the environment for excellence in teaching, learning, and research in Applied Sciences and Technology, entrepreneurship for industrial and socio-economic development of Northern Ghana, Ghana and Africa.
The mission of the Faculty of Applied Sciences and Technology is to provide career focused education and training up to the tertiary level in Applied Sciences and Technology to fill the middle level and high manpower needs of the country and beyond.
