President's Welcome

Welcome to the College of Science, Technology and Applied Arts of Trinidad and Tobago. At COSTAATT, we are strongly committed to the principle of ‘transforming lives, transforming communities and transforming the nation …one student at a time’. Inherent in our institutional philosophy and a key component of our educational thrust is a commitment to community service. Now, more than ever, our nation requires a highly educated workforce comprising citizens who understand the need for quality public services and lifelong learning as two of the hallmarks of a vibrant economy and sustainable development.


COSTAATT offers courses of study that lead to certificates, diplomas, associate degrees and bachelor’s degrees. With campuses and Learning Centres located in Chaguanas, Port of Spain, El Dorado, Sangre Grande, San Fernando and Tobago, we are continually developing programmes and initiatives to meet the needs of the various sectors that we serve. At COSTAATT, we recognise that globalisation is shrinking our world and we are, therefore, committed to preparing our students to compete in the global knowledge economy, by stimulating them to use their minds, to become critical thinkers, decision makers and leaders of their respective communities.
