BABA BANDA SINGH BAHADUR EDUCATION TRUST
S.Gobind Singh Longowal (President, SGPC & College Trust)
S.Mahinder Singh Ahli (Secretary, College Trust)
We have witness phenomenal growth in technical education in the country, in recent times. This has been possible mainly by the the private sector institutions off-loading the government expenses and contributing immensely to the growth of technical education at diploma, under-graduate and post-graduate level. The massive turnout from these institutions provided the much needed professional manpower to boost the economy. Baba Banda Singh Bahadur Engineering College and Baba Banda Singh Bahadur Polytechnic College, known as top-class sikh minority institutes, came into existence in the year 1993 and 2006 respectively at Fatehgarh Sahib, the most precious and sacred land in the world, where the younger Sahibzadas of Guru Gobind Singh ji – Baba Zorawar Singh ji and Baba Fateh Singh ji were bricked in alive. The main objective of establishing these institutes, under BBSB Education Trust, by the SGPC was to uplift the regional students, who were deprived of engineering education opportunities as compared to their counterparts in the other states. The college campus exhibits professional environment prevailing among the students and the faculty. The labs, equipped with the latest set-ups of international repute, reflect our professional commitment to the industry. You will be amazed to see how beautiful the institution has created the facilities for the students – every aspect has been taken care of as far as the all-round development of the students is concerned.
To provide guidance, motivation and training along with formal education to the youth to join armed forces, where the strength of Sikh Officers has drastically reduced, BBSB Armed Forces Preparatory Academy was started in April 2016 at Fatehgarh Sahib. The Academy conducts two integrated courses – NDA with 10+2 for male students and WES with Graduation for female students. To achieve the aim of the Academy, a team of experienced & expert faculty and trainers along with a team of advisors from Armed Forces, has been appointed.
I wish all the students achieve excellence in their respective areas and bring name & frame to their Alma mater.
