Globally, there are many colleges and universities springing up daily due to the growing demand for tertiary education. The demand has been propelled by public knowledge that people who graduate with university degrees make an average of more than twice the incomes of those who have not. People with tertiary education are also more likely to have a reliable source of income than their counterparts in various industries. Additionally, college education increases civic engagement, volunteerism, healthy lifestyle, innovation, and passion for success needed to drive change.
The Madina Institute of Science and Technology (MIST) is a technology and innovation oriented Liberal Arts institution founded on Islamic values of honesty, sincerity, hard work, and integrity. It was founded and commissioned by Madina Foundation of Science & Technology (MFST) to provide access to high quality education through teaching, research, and mentorship to empower graduates to provide solutions to everyday problems in communities. The institute holds a great promise for current and future generations, who aspire to explore the world around them. Its three schools and Center for Professional Development as well as upcoming Islamic banking center provides the stimulating environment for academic and professional inquiries into complex issues and finding effective solutions to problems. The institute is envisaged by the founders to serve as a vehicle through which complex research is initiated and undertaken to inspire change.
MIST trains students to receive respectable and prestigious degrees awarded by the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science & Technology and University for Development Studies, which are recognized around the world by employers, who yearn to recruit graduates with integrative theoretic and practical knowledge as well as willingness to add value to existing processes and systems.
At the institute you will find the opportunity to receive excellent education in engineering, business, and liberal arts. Our faculty members, who are academically and professionally qualified, will provide you with the support to think critically, act ethically, pursue truth, and contribute to the development of society.
