The College, as it was then known, took off officially on the 7th November, 1977 with a student population of one hundred and eighty distributed among two schools namely: 1. The School of Engineering Technology and 2. The School of Business Studies. The School of Engineering Technology comprised four departments of Civil Engineering Technology, Electrical/Electronics Engineering Technology, Mechanical Engineering Technology and Metallurgical and Materials Engineering Technology. The School of Business Studies commenced with one department of Secretarial Studies. Facilities for the take-off of the various programmes in these departments were adequate. The pioneer Rector (then called Principal) Engr. (Dr.) S. E. Chukwujekwu served between 1977 and 1984. He was followed by late Jacobson (1984 ? 1985), then Alhaji M. A. Danzaki (1985 ? 1992) and Dr. Y.W. Awodi (1992 ? 2000). The pioneer Rector with the pioneer Registrar, Mr. Nduka I. Eya worked assiduously to prepare grounds for the proper take-off of the Polytechnic in 1977. The first Governing Council was under the most inspiring chairmanship of Alhaji Umoru Baba who served from 1981 ? 1983. Their commitment and contributions, especially during the turbulent period of the Polytechnic were most exemplary. At the take-off of the Polytechnic in 1977 the programmes that were run include the following: ND/HND Civil Engineering Technology ND/HND Mechanical Engineering Technology ND/HND Electrical/Electronic Engineering Technology ND/HND Metallurgical and Materials Engineering Technology ND/HND Secretarial Studies. At the first convocation in 1983, the departments had grown from five to fourteen. Over the years up to the year 2000,, the School of Technology with the following programmes were introduced: ND/HND Science Technology (Chemistry, Biology/Microbiology and Physics with Electronics options). ND/HND Food Technology ND/HND Hotel & Catering Management ND/HND Mathematics/Statistics. In the School of Business Studies, additional programmes were introduced. They include the following; ND/HND Business Studies ND/HND Accountancy ND/HND Marketing. The growth of the Polytechnic was however hampered by the unfortunate fire incidence of 19 ? which destroyed a number of engineering equipment/instruments. This was a major setback, as the Polytechnic lost its accreditation to run HND programmes in Civil, Electrical/Electronic and Mechanical Engineering.
