Our History

​@ Early part of life

In the early part of life of the Home, it was realized that students having only academic qualifications found it difficult to get a job soon after their completion of studies. To help them secure some manual skills, manual training was introduced as part of the High School curriculum. This comprised of carpentry, weaving etc.

​@ 1930

To help boys who could not even complete their matriculation, workshop practices such as smithy and foundry were introduced as early as 1925. In 1930, as part of the silver jubilee celebrations of the Home a workshop was started and the inauguration done by the then Governor of Madras, Sir Frederic Stanley.


In 1932, we secured permission from the Govt. of Madras and started a licentiate course in Automobile Engineering. Initially it was a five-year course and the Home students who secured this diploma were in great demand in the Department of Transportation not only in the then Madras Presidency but all over India. As per Govt.'s directive this course was changed as three year diploma course from 1949 onwards.


In the year 1958 Govt. of India gave permission for starting additional diploma course in Mechanical Engineering. When this course (DME) was started in 1959 as per the advice of AICTE, LAE course was replaced by post diploma course of 18 months duration after DME. However the full time LAE course was totally stopped in 1962-63 as per the advice of AICTE.


In 2005, as part of the centenary celebrations of the Home it was decided to introduce 2 more three year diploma courses, DAE (Diploma in Automobile Engineering) and DCE (Diploma in Computer Engineering) besides the then existing DME, with the permission of the Government and AICTE. 


Because of the starting of multiple diploma courses, what was called as 'The Technical Institute' has been renamed as 'Ramakrishna Mission Polytechnic College' in the year 2007.
