You are a welcome visitor.
Ho 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.
Though the Technical Institute was re-designated a Polytechnic in 1986, it was not until 1993 that it got full backing of the law (Polytechnic Law PNDC Law 321) to become a tertiary institution with statutory objectives and functions. The Polytechnic Law (PNDC Law 321) was replaced in September 2007 by the Polytechnic Act (Act 745). The Polytechnic now offers the practical oriented Bachelor of Technology programmes is Mechanical Engineering (Automobile Engineering) and Fashion. We have accreditation for Bachelor of Technology in Agricultural Engineering and it may be mounted in the 2010/2011 academic year.
