The Directorate of Technical Education ensures a planned development of technical education in the state consistent with the policies of State and the Nation. We are committed to provide need based, quality technical and professional human resources to the industry, business and community.
Some of the technical skilled educational institutions are started before Independance(since 1943), by name "Occupational Institutes". Then later, these are renamed as "Polytechnics"(multiple technical skills/many technical skills). All these Polytechnics were working under "Public Instruction Department" ,since before independance to till 1959.Since number of Polytechnics and Technical degree colleges are increased, the new department called "Technical Education Department" came into existance in 1959.
