About Kano State Polytechnic:

Kano State Polytechnic is a Nigerian Tertiary Institution located in Kano, North-Western Nigeria. Established in 1975, which is regulated by the National Board for Technical Education (NBTE)

the polytechnic is made up of five schools(faculties) : School of Technology, School of Management Studies, School of Environmental Studies, School of Rural Technology and Entrepreneurship Development, School of General Studies.


The Polytechnic was first established in 1976 to bring six different schools hitherto controlled independently by related ministries in the State under one administrative umbrella.

Some of these schools were started as far back as 1970, in the wake of urgent Educational and Manpower needs in Kano State. By 1978, another Educational Organization emerged, replacing Kano State Polytechnic.

The new organization, Kano State Institute for Higher Education, established under Edict no. 18 of 1978 by the then Military Administration, had eight post-secondary institutions spread across the state.
