Special courses offered at our polytechnic

CO-Operative scheme of Diploma (Industry Institution Participation Programme)



His Holiness Jagadguru Dr. Sri Shivarathri Rajendra Mahaswamigalavaru, the founder President of JSS Mahavidyapeetha had a clear vision of the fact that nation would be strengthened if the rural people were strengthened with education in professional courses. JSS Polytechnic at Nanjangud is a result of the great vision of his holiness. The present pontiff His Holiness Jagadguru Sri Sri Shivarathri Deshikendra Mahaswamigalavaru has been blessing us in all our activities, which has contributed to the overall development of the Polytechnic. The blessings and encouragement of his holiness has made this polytechnic to grow by leaps and bounds.

Polytechnic is offering three years diploma programmes in the following disciplines.

  1. Electronics and Communication Engineering (CO-OP)
  2. Mechanical Engineering (CO-OP)
  3. Civil Engineering
  4. Mechatronics Engineering (CO-OP)
  5. Computer Science and Engineering
  6. Electrical and Electronics Engineering

Late eighties and beginning of nineties saw decline in admission to diploma. Also, there was a rapid change in technology combined with change in industry and market needs. At this point of time, JSS Mahavidyapeetha, with the blessings of HH Swamiji and vision of Prof.

M.H. Dhananjaya, Advisor, (then Director), Technical Education Division, JSS Mahavidyapeetha, thought of introducing need based diploma education, called CO-OP scheme to cater to the needs of the industry. It’s an Industry Institution Interaction diploma education where students are given on the job training in industries. Industrial training is interspaced between institutional training.

Since 1992 we are offering Co-operative scheme of education, which is an Industry Institution Participation Programme. JSS Polytechnic has made collaborations with many leading industries of the country. This is the only polytechnic in the entire state of Karnataka to offer Diploma education under CO-OP scheme.

Polytechnic has an Industry Institution Interaction Cell which looks after industrial training and placement activities. Placement activities take place during January – March and August – October.

Many reputed companies visit institution for campus selection. Selection is based on written test followed by group discussion and/ or interview. If the vacancies in the company are very few, then they seek list of passed out students (fresh) and sometimes students with one or two year experience. IIIC share the resume of the students who satisfy the requirements of industries. Later industries invite the students for selection to their venue and inform us about the details of selected candidates. Further, IIIC inform the students about the Job Mela, campus selection arranged at a centralized location in any of the polytechnics at Mysuru and see that they attend the same.

Polytechnic has achieved almost 100% placement.

Entrepreneurship Development:

Polytechnic has established Entrepreneurship Development Cell with assistance from AICTE, New Delhi under EDC scheme. Entrepreneurship Awareness Camps are being conducted for final year students every year. Entrepreneurship Development Institute of India, Ahmadabad sponsors programs under NIMAT project of Department of Science and Technology, Govt. of India. Also, students are encouraged and facilitated to become self- employed.

Alumni speak:

“much valuable and the early exposure to industry gave me clear path ahead to build my future. The industrial training helped me to connect with the management, engineers and trainees…… helped me to identify my strengths and the field of job in which I find pleasure working in future. I am glad and proud to say that to become a successful System Integrator, the basic stepping stones were laid down from my industrial training” – Praveen B, E & C Engineering (2006 batch)
