The extent law establishing it assigns to the institution the task of producing well trained and highly skilled middle level manpower for the national economy in the areas of engineering technology, science environmental studies, Management studies and Art & Design.
The Polytechnic is reviewing and updating its curricula to meet current national and global challenges. The thinking is to enrich the curricula and re-orientate students to be self employed and create jobs on graduation. Already, entrepreneurial courses have been introduced in most programmes offered in the institution.
To make the learning environment conducive, the Polytechnic has updated its workshops and laboratories. Physical structures are being provided to expand classroom space and thus reduce congestion. So far, the beneficiaries of the physical expansion projects have been the school of Art & Design; the School of Environmental Studies which got a nod for the expansion of the faculty building with its own workshops, studios, classroom and staff offices as well as School of Business Studies. Reconstruction is being carried in the institution.
