The Polytechnic of Namibia is driven by the belief that development (national or international) is based on knowledge and knowledge management.
Academic institutions have always been key agents in the dissemination of knowledge. Since the advent of the Internet, the spread and management of knowledge have taken on a new meaning and "globalization" is very much the result thereof.
Economic development, a major event in globalization, requires the participation of all of us - rich and poor, young and old, educated and uneducated. Thus, our pre-occupation is the integration of all in our society by means of education and training, science and technology, research and development.
This explains why we have embarked on a path to constantly modernize the institution by making vast investments in curriculum development and the infrastructure. The diversification of curricula at international standards - which entails new and higher qualification - reflects the Polytechnic's commitment to national development. The Bachelor's degree (B.Tech) is now the reference point across the curriculum.
At the same time, we are maintaining a state of the art environment for new and innovative ways of teaching and learning, research and service. In a nutshell, the institution is your gateway to opportunities all over the world in this millennium.
To all students and staff, I say: this is your time; seize the opportunity and make the best returns on our investment.
