College History

The Govt. Polytechnic College, Palakkad is situated in a vast 33 Acres of land adjacent to one of the largest Industrial Area of Kerala state. Palakkad district is considered to be one of the socially and economically backward districts of Kerala. The very existence of a Government college like ours plays an important role in the social development of the district.

Established in 1980, the College started under the respectful leadership of Sri. Ramachandra Pisharody, with two speciality- 3 year engineering Diploma courses in Foundry Technology and Power electronics.

In the next year (1981) itself running beyond the time, a new 3 year diploma course in Instrument Technology started which was a milestone for this college. The course at that time was rarest among those in the whole world, and its fruits were very sweet too. Most of the alumni of Instrument Technology course could find their international career successfully.

In the year 1984, 3 year Diploma course in Civil Engineering started and also standardized the courses Foundry Technology into Mechanical Engineering and Power Electronics into Electronics Engineering.

Advent of computer technology in industries, on par with training the younger generation in the year 1990, Computer Hardware & Maintenance 3 year diploma course was started in the college.

But the absence of diploma course in one of the basic engineering discipline was a major defiiciency and we could overcome and fulfill this by starting Diploma course in Electrical and Electronics Engineering from the year 2014.

The College also offers Part-time diploma courses in most of the disciplines for the working professionals of the nearby industries. The academic rating of our college is considered to be one of the best in the whole state.
