Polytechnic Education in Chennai

Updated on: Apr 11, 2013

Polytechnic institutes are vocational schools that let you gain hands-on skills and earn a diploma in technical fields like computer science, information technology, and civil, electrical, and mechanical engineering. Polytechnic diploma programs typically take three years to complete, and they provide an alternative to traditional four-year bachelor-degree programs.

While universities and colleges provide you with strong theoretical knowledge on a subject, a polytechnic school is more likely to train you in the necessary practical skills used in the workplace, which could help in your job search. Many polytechnic institutes also offer placement programs to help you find work.

There are over 3,000 polytechnic institutes across India and more than 80 percent of their courses are devoted to engineering and technology professions. A few of the polytechnic diploma programs you can pursue are:

  1. Diploma in Automobile Engineering
  2. Diploma in Civil Engineering
  3. Diploma in Computer Engineering
  4. Diploma in Electrical and Electronics Engineering
  5. Diploma in Mechanical Engineering
  6. Diploma in Mechatronics Engineering

Coursework will depend on which field of study you enter. However, you can expect the subject matter to be similar to what you'd find at an engineering college, only with more hands-on, technical instruction. There are often more lab- and workshop-based classes as well, and some diploma programs might include on-the-job training through industrial training courses.

Chennai is home to a diverse pool of polytechnic schools. One example is the V. Ramakrishna Polytechnic College, where as a student, you'll have the opportunity to take trips to a variety of companies to help give you a better idea of manufacturing and industrial practices. Mechanical engineering students might visit KCP Limited, while automobile engineering students might tour Hinduja Foundries.

This is, of course, just one of the many quality polytechnic institutions in Chennai -- all of which you can find more information about on this page.
