HND Civil Engineering
The Higher National Diploma (HND) in Civil Engineering programme is aimed at training Technician Engineers with sound practical and theoretical background to take up the middle-level supervisory role in the Civil Engineering Industry. These Technician Engineers will also be adequately prepared with the requisite skills to set up their own small and medium scale industries.
The objective of the programme is to turn out highly skilled HND holders with very sound theoretical and practical background to take up the middle and senior level roles in the Ghanaian industry and beyond. The department has introduced the Competency Based Training (CBT) concept which puts on acquisition of practical skills and knowledge into its curricula to achieve the main objectives of the establishment of the technical university status of Kumasi Technical University. The concept allows students to undertake a six-month industrial attachment with any reputable civil engineering establishment to enhance their know-how, practical skills and knowledge, and have a better understanding and appreciation of the industry. The CBT concept also focuses on students’ semester-by-semester projects development in the various civil engineering fields, which must be defended following a technical report submission. The CBT concept is therefore an avenue to achieve a highly knowledgeable and skilled workforce for Ghana’s socio-economic development.
