POF was established in December, 1951. It started growing rapidly resulting in a need to have a training centre to meet its ever growing requirements of skilled work force. In 1954-55, a technical training centre; well equipped for training facilities in the areas such as Fitting, machining, metrology and inspection was established. In 1967, the training centre; called TTC (abbreviation for technical training centre) was affiliated with the Punjab Board of Technical Education, for three (03) years Diploma course in mechanical and electrical technologies.
With the expansion of POF and introduction of latest Technologies, the need for further expansion of this Training Centre became necessary. In 1988, the scope of training was extended to include training programs in the areas such as CNC Machining, Hydraulics, Pneumatics, Controls, Power Systems, Advance Electronics and Electrical Technology. Present site was selected, new building / infrastructure was constructed and TTC was shifted to the new location. Soon, it was re-designated as POF Institute of Technology (POFIT).
This Institute has been playing the vital role in Human Resource Development. Its regular training programs are designed to meet POF training requirements for following levels of employment.
