The Darjeeling Polytechnic, which is located in Kurseong Sub Division, was established in the year 1964 and presently is the only Polytechnic offering Diploma Engineering courses in the two Hill Districts (Darjeeling and Kalimpong) of West Bengal. It was established to cater to the needs of aspiring students from the Hills of West Bengal who wanted to study engineering but did not have the financial means to leave their homes , move to far flung places and get educated. In the course of 54 years of its establishment the Institute has surely achieved more than what it was meant to be. Students have successfully completed their Diploma education in the fields of Civil, Electrical and Computer engineering and got themselves established in the Government as well as Private sectors. As a matter of fact most engineers working in different departments in the Hill Districts are invariably an alumnus of Darjeeling Polytechnic. This highlights the role the Institute had played for local students and it has lived upto all its glory.
