Established in 1963


Our Golden Jubilee Year :1963 - 2013



South Delhi Polytechnic for Women is in a legendary city. It lies on the banks of the River Jamuna. Ancient artifacts like Ashoka’s Pillar and the Old Fort, take us to the time of Lord Buddha. There are also a plethora of relics from the Mughal era.

Scholars have visited us from remote Continents. The Polytechnic in turn has had Staff and Students, from all over the World. This gives a cosmopolitan ethos, to our Campus.

The Polytechnic was established 53 years ago, at South Extension. To later move in the early 1980s - to the present, spacious & leafy green campus at Lajpat Nagar. It has now grown to be the largest, in the Country.

It is run under the aegis of the Vocational Education Society . Vocational training here, is for Professional Careers leading to jobs. We help Students in Placements and train them in Entrepreneurship or Self-Employment. We also aid them to embrace technology and digital tools (including CAD & Social Media) but always for a relevant purposeful work.

Our Polytechnic Philosophy is to pave pathways that promote the wellbeing and welfare of women. We are proud to find many girls, labelled as a dropouts or failures, have been absorbed successfully into the our college. Despite a global world and net connectivity, often a Woman's Education is in imbalance. It is this that we try to redress.

We strongly feel that to be skilled, is what stands by you and with you, in life! You can see, we have evolved with applause. A creative climate prevails at our College. I hope that by being a part of us ~ makes your life richer and better !
