Happy Dassain 2016

Dassain is the longest and most auspicious festival in the Nepalese annual calendar. The festival is celebrated by Hindus families of all caste and creed across the globe especially in Nepal, Bhutan, Burma and North Indian hills .  It is celebrated in the tenth month Kartik ( late Sept and early Oct) of Nepalese Calendar. It is the fifteen days celebration which occurs during the bright lunar fortnight and ends on the day of full moon. Goddess Durga Dassain commemorates a great victory of the gods over the wrecked demons and symbolize the victory of good over evil.

JNEC –Article II

Though the college was established in 1970s, I feel that the college is still unfamiliar to many of the young students and also the adults of the nation. Taking the example myself, I heard the name Poly for the very first time, only when I was in eleventh standard that also with unsure location.  Even now whenever I chat with my friends, juniors and other Bhutanese, many of them don’t know about the JNEC but that doesn’t mean that JNEC is not doing good,  it may be due to the location and the changing name of the college and I feel that it’s our duty to make the name of the college renowned and familiar to everyone as a student of the JNEC. The college is headed by the Director supported by the three Deans namely, Dean of Academic Affairs, Dean of student Affairs and the Dean of Research and Industrial Linkages, Administration and Finance officers directly under him. The college provides eight different courses with one Bachelor degree programme and seven other diploma courses.


It was my very late thought to share about the JNEC here in my blog since I was in the first year but due to time circumstances I was not able to do that instantly, but today, I thought of sharing few things about the JNEC for those who may would like know about the JNEC and for my own information. Jigme Namgyel Engineering College (JNEC), formally known as Jigme Namgyel Polytechnic and initially known as the Royal Bhutan Polytechnic, was established in 1972 at the beautiful place called Dewathang, Samdrup Jongkhar and popularly known as Poly in the region. It is situated at 1000m above the MSL and 18 Km away from the Samdrup Jongkhar in Eastern Bhutan. Although it started with the infrastructures developments since 1972 but the institute started offering the Diploma level programmes in Civil and Electrical Engineering from 22 th Feb 1974. The Mechanical Engineering course was introduced in 1988. In early 70s, the institute also offered certificate level course in Surveying
