Organisational Chart

Don Bosco Technical Campus is run by the Salesians of Don Bosco, St.Joseph ITC was first started at Tirupattur by Rev. Fr. Carreno, Sdb. The Institute then had six trades- Cabinet making, Engineering, Welding, Printing, Tailoring and Photography. It was originally started for the training of youngmen aspiring to join the Salesian Society.

Later in 1950, under the direction of Dr. Louis Mathias, Archbishop of Madras – Mylapore, it was shifted to the present site and more new machines were added with the combined purpose of training the aspirants and helping the poor boys of Madras city. On 9th November 1950, the Wood – Works Department was transferred together with then students to the present site. Exactly a month later the Engineering Department,. Excepting Tailoring and Photography was established at the present location. In the year 1969, due to expansion and lack of space, the Printing Department was shifted to SIGA, Taylors Road, Kilpauk. Since 1951, The Technical college has served the poor youth.

The year 1973 was another landmark in the history of the Institute, with the recognition by the Government of India, the I.T.I. trades of Fitter and Turner. In 1977, we were fortunate to have 2 more new trades recognized Welder and Machinist. The welder course has been shifted to St. Joseph, Katpadi. In 1984, two more new trades namely Electrician and Draughtsman (Mech.) were started and have been affiliated to N.C.V.T. In August 1987, the trade of Electronic Mechanic was started. This also has been affiliated to N.C.V.T.


In the year 1985 Rev Fr. John Joseph under the guidance of Rev Fr. John Peter Sathiyaraj then Provincial of Southern Province proposed for Don Bosco Polytechnic College and AICTE approved the proposal. Since it would cater the richer youth the Salesian Congregation dropped this approved proposal.

In December 2011 Rev. Fr. Ashok Amaladoss applied for Don Bosco Polytechnic College after the inspection by AICTE and DOTE members, the approval was granted for the year 2014-2015. Thus the college was established and functioning

Don Bosco

Saint John Bosco, popularly known as Don Bosco(Italian for Father Bosco) was born at Becchi, in Piedmont, Italy on August 16, 1815. From a very young age, he had decided that he had been called to work for the poor boys of that era when Europe was under the grip of the Industrial Revolution, and many young people who came to the cities to study or in search of work fell an easy prey to the many social evils of the time.

After being ordained a priest of the Catholic Church in 1841, Don Bosco came to the rescue of these poor boys with his novel method of educating youth through total dedication and personal involvement in their lives and problems.

To ensure that his total dedication to their cause shone through his actions, he based his education on the three great principles of Reason, Religion and Loving-Kindness, loving those to whom he dedicated his life as a caring father, and doing everything possible for their welfare. Don Bosco was attuned to the needs of his society. He did not visualize education in isolation from the community within whose parameters it functioned. Vocational guidance, vocational training, job placement and follow-up were as integral to Don Bosco's scheme of things as they are in modern education.

The system of education that emerged from these principles of Don Bosco is popularly known as the Preventive System and is the system that is followed in Don Bosco University. Joseph Zoppi, the Swiss educationist said, "If there ever existed a method of education adapted to inspire confidence and love, it is the method of Don Bosco." The system aims at creating a generation of young men and women steeped not only in sound knowledge-based education but also in a strong value-based education for life.

Educational Philosophy

Every educational system is based on some philosophy. We who have inherited the Salesian educational system may therefore ask: what is the philosophical basis of our system? It is a well known fact that Don Bosco was not a theoretician. He never elaborated a complete and organic educational treatise, nor did he ever express his educative method in a completely systematic way. Still, Don Bosco did have theoretical interests, and was interested in pedagogical problematics, even though not in an academic way.Clearly, he did have a method, and it is recognized that his educative efforts did form a system.

“Preventive System as the Preferential option for the poor” has impelled us in all our educative interventions at the school and college levels. The same choice now calls us to provide diploma courses to the youth in Basin Bridge,a large slum whose inhabitants are settlers from rural Tamil Nadu and from the neighboring states and who had come in search of employment. , disadvantaged because of poor economic and social conditions.

We are called to accompany the young in the crucial moments of their life. Technical study is a time in their life in which they make the more important decisions for their future. Vocational orientation in the fundamental choices of their life or profession is required most at this stage.

There is a need for a presence of the Salesian Congregation in those environments in which social change, especially in relation to youth is being promoted. We spend so much of our time, energy and means in reacting, counteracting and correcting negative youth culture. Preventive System calls us to be present in the very places where such culture is created.

Don Bosco Polytechnic College together with Industrial Training Centre can contribute to the qualified formation of youth for entry into the world of work and for their responsible involvement in society in such a way that their involvement goes beyond the demands and needs of the market and produce changes and new developments in society itself.

Don Bosco Polytechnic College is engaged in a Technical reflection on the Salesian educative system, both in theory and in practice, and its interface is with the world of technology and culture, as an attempt to make a specifically Salesian contribution in the field of education.
