    Polytechnics in Ghana are tertiary institutions with the mandate to equip students with technical skills required by industry. It takes three years to study at the polytechnic for a Higher National Diploma (HND), and four years for first degree at universities.

    In 2013, the Government of Ghana thought it prudent to convert polytechnics into technical universities and accordingly legislation was enacted to support the polytechnic-university migration.

    Eight out of the ten polytechnics in Ghana were upgraded to the status of technical university, commencing during the 2016/17 academic session. The remaining two polytechnics Bolgatanga and Wa Polytechnics were to be evaluated and upgraded to university status when they meet the standards and requirements.

    Information reaching Harmattangh.com details how the two polytechnic gained technical university status after so many years.

    Hence forth, the Bolgatanga Polytechnic will be named the Bolgatanga Technical University.

    Whereas, the Wa Polytechnic is now Dr.Hilla Liman Technical University, named after the former head of state.

    This comes after the Technical Universities Act(922) was successfully amended in Ghana’s Parliament.
