PIC: Laboratories and classrooms construction works underway
The Polytechnic, as one of the beneficiary institutions of the Skills Development Project (SDP) funded by World Bank, intends to strengthen students’ performance through construction and rehabilitation of its infrastructure such classrooms, lecture theaters laboratories and office space.

For a long time, the Polytechnic has been providing students with high quality education. However, due to lack of modern scientific laboratories, classrooms and lecture theaters, the college has been struggling in the area of research and in marketing the relevance of its programmes such as Engineering to the stakeholders. 

This has been a setback for students who have been graduating with good scientific research projects that could benefit Malawi, but due to lack of modern scientific laboratories the projects could not be implemented.

The Polytechnic is now going to wear a new face as these laboratories will be the core centres of research for students pursuing science programmes at the institution. This will be in line with the mission of the institution, which is to advance in knowledge, professional competences and innovations in science, technology, commerce and communication through excellence in demand driven education, research, consultancy and outreach. 

This will also identify Polytechnic among many institutions of higher learning around the world that are recognized on the basis of their research projects. Further more the college will undertake tracer studies and bridging courses to improve the performance of students in science subjects.
