Department of Cyber Security & Computer Engineering Technology


A warm welcome to all stakeholders and prospective applicants from all around the world to join and study with us in our Department poised to train well-rounded manpower in cybersecurity and computer engineering technology.

Our qualified and affable teaching and administrative staff are ever ready to provide you conducive teaching and learning experience so unique that no other choice of academic Department in the country can provide.

Our academic programmes are cutting-edge and among the flagship study programmes that you can find in any university in the country and all around the world. The Department currently runs academic diploma and degree programmes in cyber and information security and software engineering technology.

Moreover, the Department is striving with every effort to equip its staff to also run masters and doctoral programmes.
Among our immediate vision is to blend research and technology to drive the information technology application industries and champion the course of moving the university upwards to become a research hub in cybersecurity and software engineering technologies.
Potential partners and collaborators are therefore invited to help build a strengthened department with every capacity to train the next generation cybersecurity and software engineering technologists who will be up to the task to design, implement and oversee cybersecurity applications software for the country and beyond.

Since its establishment, the Department had two successive Heads, namely Dr. Alhassan Abdul-Barik as foundation Head and Dr. Paula Aninyie as Acting Head in April-June, 2021.
Dr. Daniel Adu-Gyamfi, a Senior Lecturer is currently appointed as substantive Head of Department for two years with effect from 1st August 2021 to 31st July 2023.

You’re therefore inspired to partner with us, join and/or study in our young, vibrant, and focused Department and tap into the rich academic and industrial experiences of our faculty members to enable all of us to contribute positively to society

Cyber Security & Computer Engineering Technology

The Ministry of Communications, Ghana with the support of the UN Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA) began a process in 2011 to review Ghana’s ICT for accelerated Development (ICT4AD) policy document to include recent developments in ICTs that were not originally included in the document.

Cyber Security, as well as Software Engineering Technology, are integral components of the four thematic areas under this review.
The department has thought-provoking, modern and marketable programmes that have synchronized meshed academic knowledge and industrial practice and demand.

It is geared towards a full blend of the academic knowledge acquired in the lecture room using modern, cutting-edge technology and tools to resolve the numerous challenges confronting us as a people to enhance industrial and socio-economic advancement. DCSCET offers you the opportunity to learn and be exposed to the real-life of work by making industrial attachment and taking up of projects per identified challenges a must.

The Department intends to be the center of excellence in providing a diverse range of skills and competencies that are both discipline-specific and job-related.

Graduates of the department are expected to be job creators and not job seekers as a result of the practical knowledge that will be given out in lectures, practical industrial projects, and supervised mandatory industrial attachment. This will subsequently lead to more growth and prosperity for the student, the region, Ghana, and the world at large.

The Department of Cyber Security and Computer Engineering Technology is under the School of Computing and Information Sciences (SCIS). It is a new department created in 2020 to provide modern programmes to speed up the technological drive of Ghana.

The Department currently runs BSc. degrees in Cyber and Information Security, Software Engineering Technology and Diplomas in Cyber and Information Security, and Software Engineering Technology.

Dr. Daniel Adu-Gyamfi is currently appointed as Head of the Department of Cyber Security and Computer Engineering Technology, School of Computing and Information Sciences, CKT-UTAS for two year term with effect from 1st August, 2021. Dr. Adu-Gyamfi is a Doctor of Software Engineering.

He obtained academic degrees of PhD in Software Engineering, Master’ s in Computer Science and Technology, and Bachelor of Science (honours) in Computer Science.
