The philosophy of the Polytechnic is reflected in its motto “Technology towards Development”.  This philosophy is being pursued by the provision of courses of instruction, training and research in technology, applied science, commerce, management and other fields of study that may be approved from time to time by the National Board for Technical Education (NBTE).

The NBTE performs this function in its role of monitoring and accrediting courses mounted in the Polytechnic.  This way, the Polytechnic’s programmes are standardised and harmonised with the National policy on Education
