Auchi Polytechnic is located in Auchi, Edo State, Nigeria and came into existence in 1963. It was formerly a technical college that offers only Ordinary Diploma Certificates in Business and Engineering.
The increase in demand for skilled manpower led to its upgrade to a functional polytechnic in 1973. National Diploma (ND) and Higher National Diploma (HND) programmes in Art and Design, Engineering, and Environmental Studies are now available. The ownership of the tertiary institution was later transferred to the Federal Government in 1994. The Polytechnic has 7 basic schools. Here is the list of the courses offered by the institution:
- Agricultural Engineering
- Banking and Finance
- Business Administration
- Graphics and Textile
- Chemical Engineering Technology
- Civil Engineering
- Food Technology
- Mass Communication
- Public Administration
- Sculpture and Ceramics
According to history, Auchipoly is one of the first four polytechnics that was ever founded in Nigeria. It remains a foremost tertiary institution with a safe environment till date. There are more than 10,000 students in various departments and the schools’ curriculum is regularly updated. As a matter of fact, entrepreneurial courses have become an intrinsic part of all the programmes in the polytechnic. It should be noted that the tuition isn’t expensive due to the fact that is run by the Federal government. Facilities such as hostels, library, and clinic are enjoyed by indigene and non-indigene students.
The students of the polytechnic usually excel in many competitions and debates that are organized in Nigeria and Africa. Typical examples include the Polytechnic Expo of Engineering Design and Fabrications in which they bagged the first position. It is the only Nigeria based partner institution with the Commonwealth of Learning (COL) as we speak. The institution regularly organizes brief and effective programmes for interested individuals that want to acquire different skills. There is a possibility that it will be converted to a university if the proposed bill is finally approved.
