Excerpted from website:
- Soon after the creation of Pakistan, it was found that there was hardly any Technical Institute in the country. In view of this the Government appointed a Council of Technical Education for Pakistan. In June 1948, the said council set up a committee of Technical Experts to carry out survey of few existing Technical Institutes in the country, and to discuss with the Industrialists, Employers and Provincial and Central Government personnel about industrial development programmes. The Committee recommended the scheme of Polytechnics and the same was approved by the Council in September, 1950. Upon the recommendations of the Council, the Karachi Polytechnic scheme was sanctioned by the Central Government in the Year 1952 and as a result of which the Karachi Polytechnic Institute came into existence. Karachi Polytechnic Institute started functioning in September, 1954 with three technologies namely ELECTRICAL, MECHANICAL and RADIO ELECTRONICS. Through various development schemes, the Institute further expanded and new technologies were introduced from time to time. The College is now offering 3 Years D.A.E Course in fourteen (14) technologies. In order to keep the doors of higher education open for the Diploma engineers, the Government approved the Scheme of B. Tech (Pass) and B. Tech (Hons) programme in March, 1974 and with the introduction of this programme, the institute was upgraded and renamed as GOVERNMENT COLLEGE OF TECHNOLOGY, KARACHI.
