Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) is a university located in Kumasi, Ghana.[citation needed] The Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology is the public university established in the country, as well as the largest university in the Kumasi Metropolis and in the Ashanti Region.[4] KNUST has its roots in the plans of Agyeman Prempeh I, Asantehene, to establish a university in Kumasi as part of his drive towards modernization of his Ashanti kingdom.[5] This plan never came to fruition due to the clash between British empire expansion and the desire for King Prempeh I to preserve his Ashanti kingdom's independence.[5]

However, his younger brother and successor, King Asantehene Agyeman Prempeh II, upon ascending to the Golden Stool in 1935, continued with this vision.[5] Events in the Gold Coast in the 1940s played into his hands. First there was the establishment of the University College of the Gold Coast. Secondly, there were the 1948 Accra riots and the consequent Watson Commission report which recommended that a university of sciences be established in Kumasi.[6] Thus, in 1949, the dream of the Prempehs became a reality when building started on what was to be called the Kumasi College of Technology.[7]

The Kumasi College of Technology offered admission to its first students to the engineering faculty in 1951 (they entered in 1952), and an Act of Parliament gave the university its legal basis as the Kumasi College of Technology in 1952.[8] The nucleus of the college was formed from 200 teacher training students transferred from Achimota College in the Greater Accra Region. The college was affiliated to the University of London. In 1961, the college was granted full university status.[9]

The university covers a total land area of 2512.96 acres.[10] The main campus which is about seven square miles in area, is about eight miles (13 km) to the east of Kumasi, the Ashanti Regional capital.[11]

In November 2019, KNUST was ranked as the best university in Ghana and West Africa by U.S. News & World Report.[12] It was also ranked 14th in Africa and 706th in the world, with a global score of 42.4.[13] In November 2020 it was ranked the best for the second time by U.S. News & World Report. This time it climbed 2 positions to be 12th best in Africa.[14][15]

History[edit]

Early history[edit]

Osagyefo Dr. Kwame Nkrumah, the first President of the Republic of Ghana

The Kumasi College of Technology opened officially on 22 January 1952 with 200 teacher training students transferred from Achimota, to form the nucleus of the new college.[16] In October 1952, the School of Engineering and the Department of Commerce were established and the first students were admitted. A Pharmacy Department was established in January 1953, with the transfer of the former School of Pharmacy from Korle Bu Teaching Hospital, Accra, to the college.[citation needed] The department ran a two-year comprehensive course in Pharmacy leading to the award of the Pharmacy Board Certificate.[17] A Department of Agriculture was opened in the same year to provide ad hoc courses of varying duration, from a few terms to three years, for the Ministry of Agriculture. A Department of General Studies was instituted to prepare students for the Higher School Certificate Examinations in Science and Arts subjects and to give instruction in subjects as requested by the other departments.[18]

From 1952 to 1955, the School of Engineering prepared students for professional qualifications only. In 1955, the school embarked on courses leading to the University of London Bachelor of Engineering External Degree Examinations.[19]

In 1957, the School of Architecture, Town Planning and Building was inaugurated. Its first students were admitted in January 1958, for professional course. As the college expanded, it was decided to make the Kumasi College of Technology a purely science and technology institution.[citation needed] In pursuit of this policy, the Teacher Training College, with the exception of the Art School, was transferred in January 1958, to the Winneba Training College; in 1959 the Commerce Department was transferred to Achimota to form the nucleus of the present School of Administration of the University of Ghana, Legon.[19][20]

In December 1960, the Government of Ghana appointed a University Commission to advise it on the development of university education, in connection with the proposal to transform the University College of Ghana and the Kumasi College of Technology into an independent University of Ghana.[21] Following the report of the commission which came out early 1961, the government decided to establish two independent universities in Kumasi and Legon, Accra.[22] The Kumasi College of Technology was thus transformed, under the supervision of R. P. Baffour,[23] into a full-fledged University Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology by an Act of Parliament on 22 August 1961. The name honors Kwame Nkrumah, the first prime minister and later president of Ghana.[4]

The name was changed to University of Science and Technology after the Revolution of 24 February 1966. The University of Science and Technology was officially inaugurated on Wednesday, 20 November 1961. However, another act of Parliament (Act 559 of 1998) changed the name back to its original version, the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, Kumasi.[24]

Organization and administration[edit]

Principal officers[edit]

The principal officers of the university are the chancellor, chairman of the University Council and vice-chancellor. As of 2018, the position of chancellor was held by the Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II.[25]

Governing body[edit]

Governance is carried out by the University Council, primarily through the Academic Board, which is responsible for:[26]

  • formulating and carrying out the academic policy of the university[27][28]
  • devising and regulating the courses of instruction and study, and supervising research[29]
  • regulating the conduct of examinations and the award of degrees, diplomas and certificates[30]
  • advising the University Council on the admission of students and the award of scholarships[31]
  • reporting on such matters as may be referred to it by the University Council[32]

Student participation in university administration[edit]

Students through the KNUST Students' Representative Council (KNUST SRC) participate in the administration of the university through their representatives serving on the University Council, Academic Board, the Welfare Services Board, Faculty and Departmental Boards, Residence Committee, Library Committee and on the Hall Councils.[33]

Collegiate system[edit]

College of Engineering, KNUST auditorium

KNUST has, since January 2005, transformed from its previous centralized system of administration into a decentralized collegiate university. Under this system, the faculties have been condensed into six colleges.[34]

The university had been administered on the faculty-based system. This led to administrative difficulties as new faculties and institutes were created to meet the ever-growing academic pursuits of students. To solve this problem, a collegiate system was officially adopted on 29 November 2004. On 5 April 2005, the pioneering provosts were inducted and invested into office at the Great Hall of the KNUST.[35]

The colleges are semi-autonomous, which means that they are given the power to largely run on their own without much dependence on the central administration for financial support. A college registrar, finance officer and librarian assist the provosts. Under them are the faculties, centres and institutes, headed by deans and directors. As heads of the colleges, the provosts provide academic and administrative leadership for the colleges and oversee their overall running.[36]

Housing and accommodation[edit]

There are numerous KNUST approved hostels, mostly in close proximity to the main campus. Students of all financial backgrounds have their accommodation needs catered for.[37] There are six halls of residence at the Kumasi campus, each administered by a hall council consisting of senior and junior members. There are few hostels on campus like the GUSS hostel, Brunei, and Tek credit hostel. The executive head is the hall master, who is assisted by a senior tutor. There is a hall bursar and other supporting staff.[38]

Halls of residence[edit]

Hostels[edit]

About 60% of the student population is non-resident. There are private hostels around the campus and in Kumasi for students who, as a result of the limited facilities/rooms, could not be admitted as resident students.[42]

There are facilities on campus where non-resident students can rest between lectures and study before they leave for their homes and hostels.[43]

In January 2014, the top floor of the Crystal Rose Hostel[44] caught fire while most students were on vacation. The cause of the fire is still not known.[45]

International students[edit]

There is a large multinational international community at KNUST as a result of the high standards of education. There is an international student association that sees to the interests of foreign students such as accommodation, orientation and campus tours.[46]

Academics[edit]

The Peace Pole was erected on the campus of the university on 21 September 2006 on the International Day of Peace. The pole is made of a 105-year-old sapele tree that used to stand in the university's botanical garden. The pole is 16.7 metres (55 feet) tall. Indigenous symbols have been carved in bas-relief on it in five languages (Twi—a local language in Ghana, Hindi, Chinese, Swahili, and Arabic). The peace prayer on the pole says: "May peace be upon Earth".

From the 2010/11 academic year some of the colleges operate a two-tier system, while others maintain their three-tier system.

This decision was made to offer opportunity for people to pursue academic programmes with the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, while still on full-time employment.[36][52]

In October 2007, the Academic Board changed the status of the Faculty of Distance Learning to the Institute of Distance Learning.[36]

Library and digital resources[edit]

The KNUST Library provides information in electronic and print formats to staff and students mainly to support teaching, learning and research in science and technology for national development. It is a depository library for all materials published in Ghana and for international institutions and organisations like the World Bank and other United Nations Agencies.[53]

Digital services are available through the Open Educational Resource (OER) as well as the DSpace repository.[54]

  • The Open educational resources (OER)[55] component of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology fosters collaboration on curricula, course materials, and content; generates connections between disciplines, teachers, and learners; and inspires use of educational materials in a more effective way.[56]
  • KNUST Online Repository[57] is the university's digital repository. Data for the repository is still being added.

Affiliated institutions[edit]

In December 2019, an agreement was signed between the Gambian government and Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology to set up Science, Technology and Engineering University in The Gambia. In the accord, the administrative and teaching faculties will be set up, coached by and affiliated to KNUST.[61]

Research centres[edit]

KNUST Students' Representative Council (KNUST SRC)[edit]

The KNUST Student Representative Council colloquially known as “KNUST SRC” is the legitimate representative student government of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, Kumasi. The council was established in 1957 . The Council is responsible for the administration of student services, campus-wide events, and student advocacy at KNUST.[64] There are about 40 students at any giving time serving on the council: a president, vice president, general secretary, financial secretary, women’s commissioner, 2 from each of the six residential halls and other appointees. Students from the six colleges and foreigners also have a representative on the council. The SRC also collaborates with the local chapter of the Graduate Students Association of Ghana (GRASAG)  and the National Union of Ghana Students (NUGS). Samuel Sesah is the immediate past president[65] with Michael Aboah as the current president.[66][67]

History[edit]

The KNUST SRC even though was listed as one of the university governing council's[68][69][70] representatives per the act that established the KNUST in 1952 had no representation on the council until 1957 when Dr. Joe Okyere Condua[71] who served for two consecutive years was appointed as the SRC president, but was not recognized on the university governing council.

Operation[edit]

Founded with the purpose of representing undergraduates at KNUST to the administration, faculty, and wider community, the KNUST Student Representative Council is chiefly responsible for advocacy on behalf of students and funding student activities on campus.[72] The Council operates with a budget that is primarily dispensed to student organizations, but it also funds social events and student initiatives. As the sole representative student government, the KNUST SRC provides student services like most student unions and also performs advocacy on behalf of the student body.[73][74]
