Cooch Behar Polytechnic : The long cherished dream of Cooch Behar came into being on August 10, 1964 when a technical institute under the aegis of the state government sponsorship and in the name of Cooch Behar Polytechnic was established for imparting Diploma Level Engineering education in three branches viz. Civil, Electrical and Mechanical.Jenkins School and Cooch Behar ITI provided infrastructural supports at its initial stage. Afterwards, a huge three-storeyed building including some other tin-roofed buildings on a sprawling area of its own on the Keshab Road and nearby the Cooch Behar Palace managed to steal the hearts of all.It came under the direct control of the Government of West Bengal in February, 1978. Considering the socio-economic condition and changing industrial scenario world-wide, two more Diploma Level Branches, Automobile Engineering and Pharmacy were also added to its teaching process in the last decade of the last century.
