The Polytechnic has its antecedents in the former Ho Polytechnic 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 Ho Polytechnic 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). Meanwhile our certificates are still awarded by NABPTEX.
The vision of the Ho Polytechnic is: A reputable technological institution contributing actively to national development by providing career-focused education and; skills training to the highest level possible and exploiting; opportunities for conducting practical research in close collaboration with business and industry.
Maintain a conducive teaching and learning environment to promote the training of highly-skilled and competent manpower imbued with entrepreneurial skills in partnership with other institutions and industry.
