Director's Welcome Message

 

Prof. David Dodoo-Arhin

Welcome to the Institute of Applied Science and Technology (IAST) of the University of Ghana. In January 2012, Council of the University of Ghana on the recommendation of the Academic Board authorized the establishment of an Institute of Applied Science and Technology. This followed the report and recommendations of the Vice Chancellor’s Committee on the Creation of an Institute to enhance the transfer of knowledge, technology and innovation from University research to meet the needs of industry. The committee which was chaired by Professor Ivan Addae-Mensah also recommended that IAST be a multidisciplinary institute bringing together researchers from the entire university.

The Committee further recommended that the programmes of the Institute should be industry-led through the establishment of an Advisory Board with strong representation from Ghanaian industry. The governance structures of the Institute which include the Advisory Board and Management Committee are expected to ensure that this is done. Administratively, the Institute sits in the College of Basic and Applied Sciences which is an amalgamation of the previous Faculties of Science, Engineering Sciences and School of Agriculture and their associated research institutes namely the Institute of Environment and Sanitation Studies and the Institute of Agricultural Research.
