Technology Students Association (TESA)
TESA is the first non-faculty based student organization founded by students of GTUC in 2007 and inaugurated in 2008. TESA focuses on ICT, Entrepreneurship, Personal and Community development. Over the years, TESA has achieved immeasurable milestones and has been a great ambassador for GTUC both in Ghana and abroad. Any student who has attended any of our programmes can confess, that, they are not time wasting at all. We say “improve or discover!” We are practical minded and our entire programmes add value to our academics, professions and careers, dreams and aspirations. We create the opportunity for members to have contacts and network with industrial giants in the ICT and business sector. We compete in Inter-tertiary programmes in order to share knowledge and ideas and also to discuss issues in our fields of study. We also deliberate on issues that affect all university students and seek ways to develop ourselves whilst in school and after graduation. www.tesaworld.org TESA: Technology for Development!
