Benue State Polytechnic (Benpoly) was established in 1977 during Colonel Abdullahi Shelleng’s regime as the military governor of Benue State. The Polytechnic was created a year after Benue State came into existence and required manpower to boost its socio-economic growth and development.
It was previously known as Murtala College of Arts, Science and Technology, Makurdi. Its name was later changed to Benue State Polytechnic in 1983. It is located in Ugbokolo, Okpokwu LGA, Benue State, Nigeria and accredited by the National Board for Technical Education (NBTE).
The Department of Agriculture of Benue State Polytechnic became part of Akperan Orshi College of Agriculture, Yandev in 1983. The National Diploma (ND) and Higher National Diploma (HND) programmes began during the 1977/1978 academic session with just 143 students and three departments. Benpoly has been gradually adding different accredited courses to its curriculum since then. It goes without saying that it keeps growing at an unprecedented rate as the current number of students exceeds 5000. Some of the available facilities provided by the school include hostels, library clinic with seasoned academic and non-academic staff. The current rector is Dr Usman David Kuti.
Benpoly has seven basic schools namely:
- School of Technology
- School of Engineering
- School of Environmental Studies
- School of Business and Management Studies
- School of Administrative and Vocational Studies
- School of Art, Design and Printing
- School of General and Preliminary Studies.
