We approach technical education in a holistic perspective.  More than being just a process of imparting specific knowledge and skill, education is really the processing ,enabling the personality of the individual to blossom.  Acquiring latest technical skills is of paramount importance, so is the acquisition of soft skills.   The acquisition of transferable cutting edge technical skills enhances the employability of the students   to meet the current needs of industry and business.  The polytechnic imparts critical thinking skills as well as fosters creative abilities to promote innovation and development.   The aim is to provide qualified & competent technical manpower who are able to positively contribute to the development of the nation.  Human values, concern for environment, moral and ethical values are essential ingredients of education leading to the transformation of students into competent engineers as well as ideal citizens.
