Harare Polytechnic was established in 1919 when George Challoner, credited with being the “father” of technical Education in Rhodesia, started mechanical engineering classes for a small group of young white men. Classes were held in various schools and halls until the Polytechnic was established just before the Second World War on the site between Fourth and Fifth Streets. Harare Polytechnic commenced operations in 1964 at its present location after construction work which cost two hundred and seventy five thousand pounds. It has grown from one department to 17 departments and divisions.
