Higher and Technical Education in our State of Sikkim has been in the forefront agenda for the Government. The Sikkim Institute of Science and Technology (SIST), a Government Engineering College is the first State Government run Engineering College in the state.
Established under the RUSA project of MHRD, the state established its campus within an existing polytechnic CCCT at Chisopani, South Sikkim. Presently it offers two AICTE approved Bachelor in Technology courses in Computer Science and Engineering and Civil engineering with intake of 40 each from academic session 2018-19. Both courses are approved by AICTE and is affiliated to Sikkim University (A Central University). The curriculum is drawn based on the Model Curriculum provided by AICTE in 2018.
That the campus already had the infrastructure and facility of a polytechnic, many of the facilities are shared. The campus provides a serene environment for education and training. The hostels for boys and girls apart from library, workshop and sports & games are common.
The permanent buildings within the campus are being built by the Government on fast track mode. It is expected that the first block will be available for use by April 2019. The existing temporary building has sufficient facilities of two classrooms, drawing hall, computer lab, chemistry lab and physics lab apart from administration office.
The Government provides free education to all students of Sikkim Origin. However they have to pay Security Deposit, hostel & mess fees, University registration etc. as per state rules. With this facility, one of a kind in the nation, we expect that the admission of 2019-20 will be competitive with merit students.
The Higher & Technical Education Directorates of HRD Department, Government of Sikkim administers the affairs of the college with a small management group at the campus.
I urge all the people of Sikkim and outside, especially the youth, to avail this wonderful facility and policy established by the Government and utilize it to their benefit for a career in engineering.

Wishing all a very Happy New Year 2020.
