Technical vocational and engineering education in Afghanistan has a long history but because of the instabilities in the country, this sector like many other sectors, has experienced catastrophic destruction. This paper discusses the history, present conditions, and the progress of Engineering and Technical Vocational Educational (TVE) institutions in Afghanistan. It has been recognised that the establishment of Engineering and TVE institutions is vital for the reconstruction and future development in the country. Therefore, recommendations are made as to how TVE and Engineering education in Afghanistan may be re-established to meet international standards and to address local needs.
