It was first established as Kumasi Technical Institute in 1954. The programmes of study at that time were craft courses. IN October, 1963, the institution was turned into a Polytechnic under the control of the Ghana Education Service. The main programmes which were taught from that time included technician courses in Engineering, Catering, Fashion Design, Royal Society of Arts (R.S.A.) and Diploma in Business Studies (D. B. S.)

In the wake of the educational reforms in the early 1990`s the Polytechnic Law 1992 (P. N. D.C. Law 321) was passed to raise Kumasi Polytechnic, among others to a tertiary institution with a mission to:
(a) Provide tertiary education through full time courses in the field of manufacturing, commerce, science, technology, applied social science, applied arts and such other areas as may be determined by the authority for the time being responsible for higher education;
(b) Encourage study in technical subjects at tertiary level; and
(c) Provide opportunity for development, research and publication of research findings.

Kumasi Polytechnic currently runs eighteen (18) full-time Higher National Diploma programmes and twenty-four (24) part-time programmes, with a student population of about eight thousand (8000).
