Kansas State Polytechnic


Polytechnic campus

Kansas State Polytechnic provides a small campus atmosphere with a professional learning environment built on theory, research and industry application in the classroom. The campus is also home to an elite aviation program that has more Master Certified Flight Instructors than any other college or university and is located adjacent to a 12,000-foot runway. The Polytechnic campus sees an approximate 97 percent placement rate of its students in either employment or higher education after graduation.

Students can choose from 16 undergraduate programs and a Professional Master of Technology, making the university an equally diverse community of traditional and nontraditional students. There are close to 1,000 Wildcats enrolled at Kansas State Polytechnic with 82 percent being Kansas natives. 

Classes and faculty

Small class sizes mean a more personalized learning experience. For example, first-year English and speech courses are limited to 25 students. Engineering technology and aviation maintenance students begin their hands-on education the very first semester and private pilot students begin flying the second week of school.

Campus life and facilities

They have the opportunity to live in suite-style residence halls and be involved in more than 30 clubs or organizations.


Students living on campus pay tuition, fees, room and board. Students in the professional pilot program will also have flight costs.


Two 100-bed suite-style residence halls are located conveniently on campus. New students are encouraged, but not required, to live on campus during their freshmen year. Computer laboratories and printers are available in each hall and hi-speed internet connections are available within each room at no additional costs. Laundry facilities are available on each floor and Resident Assistants plan events nearly every week. View current room and board rates.
