The Hassan Usman Polytechnic in Katsina has secured accreditation for 28 courses from the National Board for Technical Education (NBTE).
Ibrahim Kurfi, the rector of the polytechnic, announced this on Thursday April 7, 2022.
The NBTE gave its nod to the polytechnic to award National Diploma and Higher National Diploma in the 28 courses, said the rector.
Mr Kurfi named some of the courses include Welding and Fabrications, Architectural Technology, Library Science and Information Management, Animal Health Production, Hospitality and Tourism.
He attributed the accreditation to the support of Governor Aminu Masari to the polytechnic.
“The governor has been assisting the institution, not only to ensure accreditation of the courses but to make the polytechnic meet the standards that can compete favourably with any polytechnic nationally or internationally,” explained the rector.
He added, “You should note that I assumed office here as rector in 2017, and the governor has been assisting me tremendously in running the affairs of the school toward making it a world-class institution. I am also happy to state that all the 28 courses got the accreditation during my tenure.”
The rector assured that the institution’s management would strive hard to ensure that discipline and academic excellence were maintained in the institution.
