CIICP
Canada-India Institutional Co-operation Project
(Established under Canada India Institutional Cooperation Project)
Our Institution is one among the four polytechnics selected for the replication process of CIICP under Phase-II based on our overall performance and achievements. The Project is in operation from 01-04-1999. It is a process-oriented Project and not person oriented. The CIICP has proved to be an ideal model for strengthening the institutional capabilities and continuing education programmes at the polytechnics.
Strategic Planning
Apart from adopting curriculum and evaluation system stipulated by Board of Technical Education we also offer consultancy services and need-based courses for the upliftment of the society through various programmes by optimum utilization of available resources, through strategic planning. Based upon the SWOT Analysis, periodically revised and reviewed, the following Thrust Areas are identified. Each Thrust Area is looked after by one Manager and Back up. The Strategic Planning and Implementation Committee which comprises all the HODs, Process Champion and the Thrust Area Managers under the leadership of the Principal, assembles periodically to devise and implement policies and guidelines for the overall and wholistic development of the institution.
