IMT Enugu, a polytechnic university in Nigeria, established in 1965, is a state-owned institution with formal certification from the National Board for Technical Education.

The Institute of Management and Technology (IMT) in Enugu was established in 1973 under Edict No 10 of Nigeria. Before this, the College of Technology, Institute of Administration, and Co-operative College offered courses in Engineering, Laboratory Technology, and Co-operative Studies.

The institutions were autonomous and controlled by different ministries, with the College of Technology, Administration, and Co-operative College under different ministries. Staffed by civil servants, that could be re-posted to other departments.

In 1970, the Ukpabi Asika administration merged the former College of Technology with the Institute of Administration, merging them to create a higher institution for technological, managerial, and engineering training.

In October 1973, the Administrator appointed a Provisional Council to determine and recommend a suitable man-power structure for state and national needs. The Council submitted a report, leading to the promulgation of Edict No 10 of 1973.

The edict took effect from 1st of July, 1973 and this gave birth to what is now known as the Institute of Management and Technology (IMT), Enugu. Dr. Ukwu I. Ukwu became the first Chairman of Council while Professor M.O. Chijioke and Mr. B.O. Akwukwuma became the first Rector and the first Registrar respectively.
