The Air Force Institute of Technology (AFIT) also known as the Nigeria Air Force University is a military school approved by the National Universities Commission to run undergraduate and postgraduate courses in 2018/2019.[ It supports the Nigerian Air Force (NAF) and civilian communities by provision of basic training on Aeronautics, aerospace engineering mechatronics engineering and avionics. It is located in Kaduna state, Northern side of Nigeria.
Following the outbreak of the Nigerian civil war, variety of aircraft types and associated weapon systems resulted in a skilled manpower to operate and maintain them. The NAF at that time depended on foreign assistance for manpower development. However, the training vacancies which friendly overseas countries offered the NAF were limited, inadequate and also required huge foreign exchange financing. Consequently, soon after the civil war in 1970, HQ NAF mooted the idea of establishing an indigenous Technical and Supply School.
AFIT was founded in 1977 with the name NAF Technical and Supply School (TSS). It was supported by Messrs Dornier of Germany. The institute was renamed in 1979 as Technical Training Wing and was called NAF Technical Training Group (NAF TTG). The group was tasked with the responsibility of providing basic training for NAF personnel in the field of aircraft maintenance, armament and communication. Others are supply management. By the year 2000, its identity was changed to 320 Technical Training Group (320TTG). It was created to manage aircraft and equipment bought during Nigerian Civil War in 1967.
The need to keep pace with technological development through increase in manpower capacity building further led to upgrade of most of the certificates awarded by the Institution to a National Diploma, with full accreditation by the National Board for Technical Education, (NBTE). The Institute was also affiliated with Cranfield university, UK for post Graduate Studies in Aerospace Vehicle Design and related fields and it became evident and necessary to effect a change in the nomenclature to reflect the expanded role of the institute. AFIT thus came into being on 12 March 2008
