The President  revealed that of the first ten top students at the HND at the national level, eight were from HIPDET. He said despite the challenging period students from his institution braved the odds and took more lectures online because of the Covid-19, and still made it in flying colours which to him is thanks to the cream of lecturers both home and abroad.

To him, studying within this period of technological advancement, he can see that some of graduands would in the near future be flying in space stations and finding a cure for cancer while others find solution to global warming, preservation of natural resources, solution of environmental concerns and development of alternative energy sources.

According to the vision bearer of the Institution, Dr Troy Richardson, who is the Vice President, HIPDET is into partnership with some universities in Europe and America. HIPDET he said is being built on a solution based education and many students in the nearest future shall not envy going to Europe or America for education because HIPDET would be a reference in Cameroon and neighbouring countries.
