All You Need To Know About Ho Technical University


Ho Technical University, formerly known as Ho Polytechnic, is a public tertiary institution in the Volta Region of Ghana.

The Polytechnic started in 1968 as a technical institute with the goal of providing pre-technical education. By 1972, the Institute made tremendous progress and upgraded its courses. In 1986, the institution was upgraded into a Polytechnic.

However, it was not until 1993 that it got the full backing of the law to become a fully-fledged tertiary institution, charged with the responsibility of training students to the Higher National Diploma (HND) and Degree Levels.

Strategic Plan
The Polytechnic has its antecedents in the former Ho Technical Institute, which was established in 1968 to provide pre-technical training courses in various engineering and building trades. In 1972, the pre-technical courses were upgraded to more advanced programmes in technical, business and other vocational disciplines.
