Construction Technology Training Institute, known as CTTI, was initially established as Construction Machinery Training Centre (CMTC) in 1986 by the Government of Japan through JICA for 4 x short courses in construction machinery of 3 months duration each. In 1989, CMTC was inaugurated by Shaheed Mohtarama Benazir Bhutto. In 1992, after the introduction of Diploma classes in Mechanical Technology with Specialization in Construction Machinery, CMTC was upgraded to CMTI. In August 2006 CMTI started 13 Skill Development Short Courses ranging from 3 to 6 months along with 3 years Diploma in Auto & Diesel Technology. The same year, Prime Minister Shoukat Aziz during his visit to CTTI directed to launch Phase-IV for capacity
enhancement to cope with the emergent requirements of Government’s Skill Development Programme. In pursuance to Prime Minister’s orders, DAE Civil along with capacity enhancement in all departs was started. As the training mandate shifted from Construction Machinery to Construction Technology, CMTI was renamed to Construction Technology Training Institute (CTTI). Presently 4 x Diploma courses of 3 years duration and about 22 x different vocational short courses ranging 3-6 months duration are being conducted by this Institute.
