The Quezon City Polytechnic came into existence on March 1, 1994 by virtue of City Ordinance No. SP 171 under the name Quezon City Skills Training Center to undertake the training of skilled workers in response to the manpower requirements of industry and business establishments in the city.
The three-year Technician Curriculum was introduced in academic year 1994–1995 to develop highly competent technicians for industry in the areas of automotive, electrical, refrigeration and air-conditioning, fashion technologies. The following academic year, electronics, mechanical, and computer technologies and the industry-led pilot course on boiler technology were added.
The Quezon City Polytechnic (QCPU) established its reputation among local government units as a show window and model technology-based institution paving the way for its recognition by the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) and for developing a strong alliance with the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA).
In 2001, Ordinance SP 1030 created a charter for the establishment of Quezon City Polytechnic University.
Under its present setup, meaningful access to higher education is envisioned. In academic year 2005–2006, the university started offering degree programs.
