Kisumu Polytechnic

Kisumu Polytechnic is situated on the outskirts of Kisumu City, within Kisumu County, approximately three kilometers east of the city centre and about 342 kilometers from Nairobi.

Kisumu City stands at the centre of the Great Lakes Region and is fast emerging as a hub for the East Africa Economic Union. It is also emerging as an academic city with a range of newly established and flourishing colleges and universities.

Kisumu National Polytechnic began operations in 1967 as a technical secondary school. The management admitted its first batch of students at Sigalagala Technical and Trade School while they awaited completion of Kisumu Technical Secondary School which was officially opened in 1971.
In 1988, the Ministry upgraded the institution to a Technical Training Institute with an aim to produce hands-on human resource, competent in the application of technical skills. This coincided with the national rollout of the 8-4-4 education curriculum that required such institutions to cater for the rising demand for technical skills.

In 1996, the Ministry further upgraded the Technical Training Institute into a National Polytechnic to cater for the regional demand for technical skills.
On 22nd August, 2014 in response to section 26 (2) of the Technical and Vocational Education and Training Act of 2013, the Cabinet Secretary for Education Science and Technology promulgated the  KISUMU NATIONAL POLYTECHNIC ORDER, 2014 with a wider mandate that has now occasioned the new name. This new order required the institution to constitute a Governing Council to steer it and repeal Legal Notice No 85 of May 30, 2001 that recognized it as a polytechnic. The Governing Council assumed office on August 2015.
