The visionaries of the institutes were highly appreciated for ensuring the institute stays on course for almost seven decades. “Today KIHBT stands tall for producing some of the best brains in the wider infrastructure sector. These achievements continue to be our greatest strength and are a clear indication of the legacy of academic excellence we have attained over the years” said Mr. Etyang’
