In a conscious move to create Excellence in Learning, Heritage Polytechnic places emphasis on research. All departments are properly funded to carry out researches which are particularly focused on community-related problems, and projects that can be translated to practice and policy to improve human welfare issues, as well as making Heritage Polytechnic a research centre. Laboratories, studios and library are up to date to assist staff and researchers make the best of their ability.

 Research findings from Heritage Polytechnic are published in reputable international journals.
