The origin of Ho Technical University goes back to 1968. It was established as a Technical Institute with the primary objective of providing pre-technical education. By 1972, the Institute had made tremendous progress in upgrading of the courses offered. Consequently the pre-technical programmes expanded to courses in the Engineering and Vocational fields, e.g. Basic Engineering, Agricultural and Mechanical Engineering, Building Technology, Fashion, Hospitality Management and Business Education.
In 1986, the Institute became a Polytechnic. It however continued to operate as second cycle institution, until 1993 when the Polytechnic was upgraded to a fully-fledged tertiary institution by the enactment of PNDC Law 321 and charged with the responsibility of training students in the technical and vocational skills to the Higher National Diploma [HND] level. Subsequently, in 2007, Polytechnics were given the mandate by the Polytechnics Act 745 to award their own degrees to the highest level.
The passage of the Technical Universities Act 2016 (Act 922) provided Ho Technical University and mandated it to award degrees, diplomas, certificates and other qualifications to the highest level in Engineering, Science and Technology based disciplines , Technical and Vocational Education and Training, Applied Arts and related disciplines.
