The Federal Polytechnic Daura, Katsina State (Establishment) Act, 2019, establishes the Polytechnic (FEDPOLYDAURA) to provide full and part-time courses of instruction in different fields of studies. The primary objective of the Polytechnic is to provide skill-based and practice-oriented training for self employment as well as to produce middle and high level technical manpower for both public and private sectors of the economy.
The Federal Polytechnic Daura came into being on a motion raised by late Senator Mustapha Bukar Madawakin Daura in the Green Chamber. Unfortunately, the late Senator could not live to see the motion passed as Law. His colleagues, determined to actualize his dreams, promised to pass the motion as Law during the valedictory session in his honour. Senator Ahmad Babba Kaita made sure that the bill was signed into Law on 5th July 2019 by the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
Federal Polytechnic, Daura contextualizes its philosophy, vision, mission and core values on its motto, which is “Knowledge that Inspires individuals to skills and Entrepreneurial Development”. It hopes to operate a polytechnic curriculum based on the functional education concept. The focus is to change the orientation and mindset of students towards functional knowledge, creativity, innovation and entrepreneurship.
