About the Institute
Newly formed Uttarakhand is the 27th state of India having 13 districts with population of 1.03 Crore according to the 2011 census. In the light of adverse geographical circumstances of hilly areas and increase in the availability of technical education, fast establishment of Government Polytechnics began after formation of the State. Till date the State has 72 Government Polytechnics, in the Kumaon and Garhwal regions.
This Polytechnic was established by Government of Uttarakhand in December 30, 2005 for Diploma course Computer Science and Engineering. Keeping in view the vast progress in the field of industrialization in this state, Polytechnics have to redefine themselves and come with shoulder to shoulder status with the industries. We are trying to develop human resource with same pace as industrial growth is going on. The Institute is situated on Rishikesh-Badrinath National Highway-58, at village Ratura, District Rudraprayag. We have 2.881 hectare land. As the place Rudraprayag is a holy confluence of Alaknanda and Mandakini rivers, in a similar fashion for our students this institute is a confluence of Skill and Will.
I am honored and feel very privileged to be the Principal of Government Polytechnic Rudraprayag. Government Polytechnic Rudraprayag has an outstanding reputation for establishing high expectations and achieving excellent academic results. Talents too are constantly developed through sports and varied co-curricular activities. While academic excellence is our major thrust, the College is also devoted to prepare the students for life, groom them to face the challenges of tomorrow, and encourage them to be socially relevant. We constantly endeavour to always live up to this ideology and inculcate this into everything we do, with the aim that we will be able to ensure that the students grow to their full potential. I believe that having quality, inspirational and passionate teachers is essential to a Institute’s success.
