Brief History of Accra Technical University

Accra Technical University was initially established as a Technical School in 1949 and commissioned in 1957 as the Accra Technical Institute.

In 1963, it was converted to a polytechnic and it became the key determinant in the creation of other polytechnics in the country and led to the enactment of the PNDC Law of 1992. A year after the enactment of the law, Accra Polytechnic was officially recognized as a tertiary institution.

In 2007, the polytechnic started awarding Higher National Diplomas, Diplomas, and several other certificates and courses accredited by the National Accreditation Board. This was after the approval of the Polytechnic Act (Act 745) in the same year.

Accra Polytechnic gained the status of a technical university after the coming into force of the Technical University Act, 2016 (Act 922).
