The Federal Polytechnic, Idah is founded on the Philosophy of "TECHNOLOGY FOR SELF RELIANCE". In other words, it is built to build job creators rather than job seekers. Since its establishment in 1977, the Polytechnic has been striving to keep faith with this vision with the view to meeting the aspirations and dreams of the founding fathers. The foregoing being a top priority, the Polytechnic is currently in another era of transformation with a six point plan of action: staff and student welfare and security, administrative and academic development; infrastructural development, pprudent management of financial resources and internal revenue generation.
