The Ramakrishna Mission makes an honest effort to practice the ideal “Service to Humanity is Service to God” given by Swami Vivekananda. At Ramakrishna Mission Shilpapitha, Belgharia, Kolkata 700056, we are translating the ideal since 1958 by providing a right atmosphere mainly to village students to study Diploma Engineering.
Ramakrishna Mission Shilpapitha is a Government Sponsored Polytechnic managed by Ramakrishna Mission Calcutta students’ Home, Belgharia, Kolkata-700056, focused to impart technical education mainly to the poor village students as wished by Swami Vivekananda. Our Shilpapitha is recognized by West Bengal State Council of Technical Education and All India Council of Technical Education.
In our institute we offer three-year (six semesters) diploma courses in Civil Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering and Electronics & Telecommunications Engineering. Total number of students is nearly 650. Two third of our students are from villages and many of them are from needy and distressed family. Since our first batch in 1961, our institute helped many students to be knowledgeable diploma engineers with strong values and ethics. Like all the educational institutions managed by Ramakrishna Mission, we also maintain very good academic ambience in our institute. Our teachers are very sincere and as a result our students attain depth in technical knowledge. Almost every year our students get gold medals from West Bengal State Council of Technical Education.
We believe that developing young men of strong moral character is the only solution for the regeneration of India as envisaged by Swami Vivekananda. Along with their academic studies we try to induce in our students’ character qualities like honesty, dedication and sense of commitment. Many of our students get chance to participate in Flood Relief, Cyclone Relief, Distress Relief, etc. conducted by our Ashrama and thus inculcate the spirit of Unselfish Loving Service to the poor and downtrodden masses. As a result students of our polytechnic have been found to be loyal and dependable employees, which no mere salaried employee-awareness can ever confer.
We have one of the best training and placement cells among all the polytechnics of West Bengal, which ensures placement to nearly 90% of our students. Companies like Tata Steel, Tata Motors, Tata Cummins, Asia Brown Brewery, Shapoorji Pallonji & Co. Ltd, Larsen & Tubro Ltd., etc. regularly visit our campus. We are committed not only to provide technical education to poor village students, but also we make sure that they could get a placement at the end of their course. Thus we helped many many poor families to earn their livelihood for the past 50 years.
We earnestly request you to participate in this Educational Yajna for the alleviation of the Poor Village Students started by our founders and strengthen our hands in the noble venture.
