Abstract

This paper presents the findings of a needs assessment (NA) which served to determine the particular needs for Institutuion (IB) and Capability Building (CB) in the Construction Industry (CI) for the upgrading of Building Technology (BT) education at two selected Polytechnics (PTs) in Ghana. The NA is part of a project, carried out to contribute to the improvement of the CI by means of Technology and Knowledge Transfers (TKTs) for IB and CB at PTs in Ghana. The methodological approach is multidisciplinary. The paper discusses the Ghanaian education system, particularly education in BT; the state of art of education programs, staff capabilities, teaching materials and facilities for the BTech and MTech curricula in BT. It concludes with recommendations for strategies for TKTs, IB and CB, and the organisation and teaching in the Ghanaian context.
