The Historic Moment of JNP
Yesterday and today are very special days for all of us, the jnp family. The occasion was celebrated for the official inauguration of B.E Power Engineering, the very first degree programme introduced at JNP in the history of Jigme Namgyal Polytechnic. The honorable lyonchhen Tshering Tobgay officially inaugurated the programme and officially declared the new name of the institute which was kept secret and unknown for quite long time and we were really curious to know the new name of the institute. Another historic moment was the institute getting its name changed from the Jime Namgyal Polytechnic (JNP) to the Jigme Namgyal Engineering College (JNEC) in the history of JNP.
I think that we the 2015 and 2014 batches are the luckiest batches of the JNP as we got the privilege to be known as the Polytechnic students as well as will be known as the JNEC students. The batches before us and after us will never get privilege to be known as both JNP and JNEC students so, I consider myself as one of the luckiest student and luckiest batch. We know how we felt as the Polytechnic students and how we feel as the Engineering College students.
To make the day more remarkable there was a showcase of science exhibition, showing the innovation of students and the book fair presenting various types of engineering books and literature too. The two days celebration kept, so that everyone around can make a visit to the college and make the moment more remarkable. The 27th of Oct 2015 will always be a special day in the history of Jigme Namgyal Polytechic. I think we will be missing the remarkable name ‘Polytechnic’ always.
The celebration was good and successful and we all are happy with the new name of the institute but at the same time as I said earlier, we all will be missing the 'Polytechnic' as we already got connected with it.
