The Integrated Polytechnic Regional College (IPRC) Karongi was initiated in 1989 by the Government of Rwanda supported by the World Bank in terms of equipment and infrastructures as a Technical Secondary School. In September 1990, the first batch of 160 students divided up in four classes all boarded was admitted in the school year 1990/1991 with trades of Industrial Installations, Heavy Machine Mechanics and Maintenance mechanics. The school started with four Trainers including a Director. At that time, the school had two Workshops, six classrooms, four dormitories, a kitchen + dining room, an administrative block and fifteen houses for trainers.
In April 1994, the Genocide arose when the fist batch was about to graduate in July of that year. The school then stopped its activities because of the war. There was looting of equipment, tools and teaching materials especially for Automobile Mechanics option. The presence of the MINUAR (United Nations Mission to Rwanda) and afterward those of Operation called “Turquoise” increased largely this situation of looting and destruction.
