Fashion Design and Technology

Kenneth Boateng

Mr. Kenneth Bright Boateng, HOD

Before the upgrading of the Polytechnics in Ghana to the tertiary level, programmes offered in the Department were mainly intermediate and advanced courses.  The Higher National Diploma in Fashion Design and Textiles Studies was introduced in October, 1994 in this Polytechnic, as a result of the Ghana Government Educational Reforms.

The HND Fashion programme took off in 1994 academic year with only nine female students, six of whom successfully graduated in July, 1997.

Vision

The vision of the Department is to prepare and turn out skilled manpower, in the areas of supervision and managerial levels, so as to provide effective support for textiles and modern garment industries, now springing up not only in the Western Region but also in the entire country.

Mission

The mission of the Department is to provide meaningful and comprehensive education through full time course, with special emphasis on broad technical and vocational training as well as to encourage the application of the Arts in order to promote creativity self-expression for the foundation of uniqueness to achieve individual originality.

  • To meet domestic as well as external needs; and
  • To train a new generation of more forward thinking and intuitive professionals, to meet international standards, and to maintain and promote our cultural integrity and heritage with due regards to social ethics and traditional dress codes.
