The Santiniketan Institute of Polytechnic founded in 2010 is located at rural backdrop far from the madding crowd. Still, all the facilities of Bolpur and Santiniketan are within easy and comfortable reach. The impact of Tagore’s school is well felt here. Santiniketan being very close to Santiniketan Institute of Polytechnic the cultural traditions of Visva-Bharati cast a magic spell all around. The students and teachers are deeply imbued with Rabindranath Tagore’s mission and educational concepts.
The setting is not only serene and solemn but also intimately attached to nature, which is vibrant with the notes of birds, whispering wind, the mesmerizing fragrance of flowers and of course, the positive nod of tree-tops.
