BlueCrest College was conceived in 1999 as the front runner in IT Education and Training with the core objective of addressing the IT needs of Ghana. It tied up with NIIT Limited (one of the top 10 IT Training companies worldwide) to offer NIIT benchmarked IT Education and Training in Ghana. The first centre started in May 2000 and within a year of its operation, BlueCrest College achieved the status of the largest IT Training School in Ghana. Other IT centres were opened in Kumasi, Takoradi, Tema and Tamale to extend its reach across Ghana. To value-add to its offerings of Certificates and Diplomas from NIIT, BlueCrest College sought affiliation with University of Education, Winneba. Under this alliance, BlueCrest College started offering undergraduate degree programmes at Accra and Kumasi, to be followed by Masterâ€™s degree in near future. The College had one Faculty at the onset â€“ Faculty of Technology with only one Department â€“ Department of Information and Communication Technology. However in 2012,after the rechristening from NIIT Ghana College to BlueCrest College, with a vision of offering wide range of programs in diverse fields, College constituted two more faculties. Presently,the College has three (3) Faculties namely, Faculty of Technology, Faculty of Business and Faculty of Energy Management and a total of five (5) Departments. BlueCrest College is accredited by National Accreditation Board of Ghana as a Private Tertiary Institution. BlueCrest College has become very popular among prospective applicants because of the diverse nature of programmes offered to students. The College has an innovative and flexible approach towards academic instructions that incorporates multiple programme paths to suit their future aspirations. Though all programmes are directed at training students to become seasoned in their chosen field, they are also developed to promote self-employment as successful entrepreneurs and provide employment opportunities to the youth.
