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 Titah during the National Teachers' Day Celebration on 18
In January 2012, Politeknik Brunei began operation at the 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. 7 years later, the
institution now has a total of over 2070 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 was a result of the 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 goals and strategies identified and outlined in Politeknik Brunei's
5 Year Development Plan 2015-2020, we will continue to work collectively to
develop Politeknik Brunei into a reputable institution 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 everyone at Politeknik Brunei
will continue and be sustained in driving our institution forward towards
achieving our vision and mission.
