Welcome Message by Director
Welcome to the official website of Politeknik Brunei.
The consent for the establishment of a polytechnic in Brunei Darussalam was given by His Majesty Paduka Seri Baginda Sultan and Yang Di-Pertuan of Brunei Darussalam in his Decree during the National Teachers’ Day Celebration on 18 October 2008. The intention for the establishment of Politeknik Brunei was for the institution to take over the role of offering the ‘Higher National Diploma (HND)’ level technical programmes from Institut Teknologi Brunei (now known as Universiti Teknologi Brunei) after its official upgrade to a ‘University’ status.
In January 2012, Politeknik Brunei began operation at its modest temporary campus at Jalan Ong Sum Ping, Bandar Seri Begawan, as the first polytechnic in Brunei Darussalam by offering a total of 9 Advanced Diploma programmes with a total of 401 students being enrolled as its inaugural intake. 5 years later, the institution now has a total of 1550 students enrolled into its 21 programmes which are currently being conducted at 3 separate venues including the campus at Ong Sum Ping.
The phasing out of the 2-year Advanced Diploma programmes by the 3-year Level 5 Diploma programmes in July 2015 reflects the current development of the technical education system in Brunei Darussalam that began with ‘The National Education System for the 21st Century’ (SPN21) in 2008 and the announcement of the ‘Brunei Technical Education Transformation’ by His Majesty Paduka Seri Baginda Sultan and Yang Di-Pertuan of Brunei Darussalam in May 2014.
Based on the strategic plans identified and outlined in Politeknik Brunei’s 5 Year Development Plan 2015-2020, we will work collectively to develop Politeknik Brunei into a reputable institution in the country by providing quality technical education to the students in helping the nation to meet the challenges of the 21st century. We are confident that our graduates will continue to become useful and innovative human resources who will be able to help with the social and economic development of the country towards achieving the Wawasan Brunei 2035 goals.
I wish to express my sincere thanks to the Project Team and all who have contributed towards the continuous development and update of this website. I hope the co-operative spirit and dedication of all at Politeknik Brunei will continue and be sustained in driving our institution forward towards achieving our vision and mission.
