Polytechnic Institute ULK foundation goes back in October, 2014. The idea to put in place such an institute came after realizing that Rwandans and even people from beyond the borders have an increasingly burning desire to acquire technical skills which enable them to become job-creators other than job seekers.
Currently, the institute runs two departments: Civil Engineering as well as Electrical and Electronics Engineering. The former has Construction Technology and Land Survey Engineering as options while the latter has Electrical Technology as well as Electronics and Telecommunication Technology as options. Besides, the institute also organizes short courses in Linesman Training, Solar Systems training as well as Masonry and Plumbing training.
