About the Department:

JSSPDA is conducting a diploma and short term courses in Jewellery Design and Technology from the academic year 2000-01 with the support of World Gold Council and JSS MVP, an International non-profit making organization, involved in jewellery production technology promotional activities. This is the first polytechnic across India to offer a three year diploma course, in Jewellery design and technology coursing the areas of Jewellery Design and Manufacturing Techniques.
According to the industrial needs the curriculum has been implemented which includes subjects like Mathematics, Chemistry, Introduction to jewellery making techniques, Stone settings, Casting and design studies etc. The department is having Experienced and highly qualified staff who have acquired communication skills and subject skill to teach differently abled students.

The programme aim is to give more practical knowledge in the area of jewellery design and making. The students can participate in state as well as international level in jewellery designing and making. The department conducts various guest lectures, Workshop, Industrial visit to expose the students to know practically through interaction, working method and employment practices. Many of our Alumni are placed in various Jewellery industries like Tanisqh(Titan), Joyalukkas, Blue stone, melora jewells,  Arum, A – Star, Ganjam jewelers, Rajesh exports, Pruthvi Jewels,3D-Max and many more Industries.

Eligibility: Candidates who have passed SSLC (Karnataka) or its equivalent and students with loco motor disabilities and hearing impaired are eligible for admission.
