It is my pleasure to heartily welcome you to the official website for the Directorate of University Affiliations, the Federal Polytechnic, Bida, Niger State.
The Directorate of University Affiliation was established in the polytechnic to run degree programmes in affiliation with reputable universities in an effort to strengthen its academic programmes and bring about knowledge sharing and access to affordable university education to people from all walks of life.
For sometimes now, the Federal Polytechnic Bida has got both national and international recognition for its academic standards. The institution began as BIDA COLLEGE OF TECHNOLOGY following its relocation and subsequent change of name from Federal College of Technology, Kano, in Kano, Kano State, to a new place, Bida, Niger State, in July 27, 1977. Eyagi Technical School, Bida was its first settlement before moving to the present day Ndayako Day Secondary School, Bida, earlier occupied by Federal Government Girls College, Bida, which had moved to its permanent site along Lemu Road, Bida.
Today, it is gratifying to note that the Institution is carrying out its businesses in its permanent site along Bida-Doko road, Bida, Niger State. It is on record that “Decree No 33, Federal Polytechnic Decree 1979” changed the name of the institution from BIDA COLLEGE OF TECHNOLOGY, to THE FEDERAL POLYTECHNIC, BIDA, NIGER STATE. This name has, over the years, become a phenomenal name, particularly as it is christened BIDA STANDARD (BIDA CENTRE OF EXCELLENCE). In addition, our structural facilities, equipment and other related facilities required for convenient and conducive teaching and learning environment are available and second to none. I am happy to be associated with the institution, the students and of course, the staff. My mission to leave the Polytechnic better than I met it is already a mission accomplished. It is therefore, my joy and satisfaction to formally invite and welcome you to the university affiliation programme of The Federal Polytechnic, Bida, Niger State (the home of BIDA STANDARD) which shall continue to be showcased and accessed through this website.
