From the Principal's Desk….

karthikeyanThiagarajar Polytechnic College - the place where the mind is led forward into ever widening thought and action.

Warm Greetings to all !

I am very happy to share my thoughts with you all.

The world is slowly returning to the new normal after the pandemic with all measures. The education sector is also sustaining the noble cause of imparting knowledge to the young budding citizens amidst the pandemic. As such, our institution has also been adopting many digital tools in the teaching learning process to sustain the academic activities of the institution. The teaching learning and assessment of the odd semester was successfully completed through online mode and the students responded promptly in all the activities.

I am very happy to share that our institution has been sanctioned with grants from the AICTE for conducting Faculty development programmes under various schemes. As such, ATAL FDP Programmes on Sensors Technology and Role of Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality in Engineering and Education, AICTE Short Term Training Programme on Non Destructive Testing Methods, two week FDP on OBE and SAR Preparation Guidelines for Polytechnic Teachers and AICTE ISTE Induction / Refresher Programme on Best Educational Practices were successfully conducted by our institution through online mode during November and December 2020 and TPT takes pride in training more than 1000 faculty members across the nation during this pandemic. I appreciate all the co-ordinators and faculty for their efforts in successfully conducting the FDPs.

For the first time, the admissions to first year and lateral entry second year diploma programmes were made online owing to the present situation. Also, the Freshers’ Day to welcome the new entrants to the institution was held on 05 October 2020 through online mode. I am very happy to welcome all the newly admitted students to this temple of learning. It gives me immense pleasure to note that the newly admitted first year students are being taught online and the response from them is quite appreciating.

The Graduation Day of this institution was conducted on 20 December 2020 in blended mode wherein the graduates received their certifications for successfully completing their diploma programmes. I congratulate all the outgoing students for their accomplishments and wish them all good luck for their prosperous life and career.

With the return to new normalcy, the institution now offers education in face to face mode and the students come to the institution in person. At this juncture, my appeal to all the faculty and students is to follow the Standard Operating Procedures and maintain social distancing for everyone’s wellbeing.

Once again, I welcome all the new entrants and wish the outgoing students for their prosperous future.
