The Institute in brief

The Administrative Technical Institute of the Polytechnic University of Duhok, established in 1989, encompasses various technological and administrative departments. In 2009-2010, administrative divisions were separated from technological ones, resulting in the creation of the independent Administrative Technical Institute under the jurisdiction of the Erbil Technical Education Authority. Following the establishment of the Polytechnic University of Duhok, the institute became one of its academic pillars responsible for cultivating and graduating middle-tier professionals. The institute offers a two-year academic program, with approximately 60% of the curriculum dedicated to theoretical and practical training. Additionally, students undergo summer internships in governmental and private sectors, a prerequisite for graduation. Upon completion, graduates receive a Technical Diploma, enabling them to work in various governmental and private institutions. Admission is open to high school graduates from scientific, literary, and vocational branches.
