NTNU Alumni Ghana

NTNU Alumni Ghana

NTNU Alumni Ghana is a network for all our former students living in Ghana.

It is a social and academic meeting place – a shared arena where you can become involved as an NTNU person.

The ambition is to have a large and active network where a strong NTNU identity means that members are good ambassadors and partners for their alma mater. Members should be a resource for NTNU and for each other. The network aims to link NTNU with business and society in Ghana to enhance cooperation and contribute to developing more knowledge for a better world.

NTNU Alumni Ghana arranges a variety of activities during the year, both social and professional. It is an outstanding arena for keeping in touch with NTNU. You will get many opportunities for updates in your field as well as networking and teamwork.

Sign up and get involved together with your NTNU Alumni fellows!
