We believe research holds the key to unveiling secrets of life and the path to create a better future for all. KNUST has several research centres including new ultra-modern and refurbished laboratories to make our aim of becoming Africa's model university a reality. These research facilities and laboratories help students approach studies more practically and consolidate theories. Postgraduate study is continually being improved to develop a strong research base and streamline development in all aspects of our lives. KNUST research centres cover areas of research into science, arts, business and more. We have a centralized database system which stores information on our research areas and publications.
