About the Polytechnic Campus

The Polytechnic Campus, located about 65 miles west of KSU's main campus in Manhattan, is centered around the student experience emphasizing innovative learning, real-world experiences and industry connections. Our student to faculty ratio is 14:1 - meaning our faculty are focused on each individual student. We are a tight-knit family with a small college feel and the resources of a Big 12 university. Kansas State University Polytechnic has an award-winning professional pilot program with more Master Certified Aviation Instructors than any other college or university in the nation. We have a fleet of more than 30 aircraft and flight training devices, and a large and active regional airport steps away from our classrooms.
