Kaduna Polytechnic Application Form: How to Get Yours

The history of Kaduna Polytechnic can be traced to the establishment of Kaduna Technical Institute in 1956. The establishment of the Technical Institute, Kaduna was due to the British Government accepting the recommendation of the Higher Education Commission, which suggested the upgrading of Yaba Higher College to Technical Institute and the establishment of technical institutes in Kaduna and Enugu.
One of the institutes eventually became the Kaduna Polytechnic in 1968 which was based on the Federal Government Decree No. 20 of 1968 (the decree was later revised in 1979)

Kaduna Polytechnic is one of the major tertiary institutions in the Northern part of the country. Currently, the polytechnic has a student enrolment of over 25,000 students in over 138 programmes and 44 Academic Departments.
