Welcome Message by Acting Director
Greetings and welcome to Politeknik Brunei's Website!
It gives me great pleasure to welcome you, on behalf of Management and Staff to
Politeknik Brunei's Website.
Politeknik Brunei (PB) was established in 2012 starting off with nine Advanced
Diploma programmes and a total student population of only 442. In 2014,
the Politeknik Brunei Order was written and published turning PB into a
corporate body governed by its own Board of Governors (BOG) who were tantamount
in steering Politeknik Brunei towards further development. This included the
adoption of the School of Health Sciences and the extension of the School of
Science and Engineering to a satellite campus which were milestones in the
institution's Academic journey.
Now following Brunei Darussalam Qualification Framework (BDQF) and the Ministry
of Education's Skim Pendidikan Negara Abad 21 (SPN-21), PB increased the quality
and quantity of its Level 5 Diploma programmes to 21 and consequently increased
the total student population to 1,323. As of July 2021, from the
continuous advice of our BOG and effective collaboration with industry partners
and stakeholders, PB has a total of 31 Level 5 Diploma programmes and a total
student population of 2,582.
It is our determined policy to adapt an agile mindset and assimilate ourselves
to the world of digital transformation and therefore, PB will continue to
develop by embarking on its new Five-Year Development Plan (2021-2025) in order
to progress as a Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) provider
among Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) in Brunei Darussalam.
Taffawuq (Excellence) is PB's single but powerful core value, and
together we inculcate it effectively in our day-to-day operations and
performance where we are always striving for excellence.
Our vision is generating innovative and future ready graduates
by upholding its mission of delivering industry-driven quality
education and training. It is the hope of PB that the
graduates from this polytechnic will have the required skills and expertise to
drive the industry through the unforeseeable future. These hopes
will be driven by our four strategic focus areas that we will be enhancing for
the next five years (2021-2025); (i) Institutional Governance,
(ii) Quality Education and Training, (iii)
Infrastructure Development and (iv) Strategic
With this direction, PB will continue to grow aligning its direction to support
the digital economy master plan of Brunei Darussalam, Brunei Darussalam's
economic blueprint and the Manpower Planning and Employment Council (MPEC) to
prepare its students to become useful and innovative assets in the
socio-economic development of the country and ultimately to the attainment of
the Brunei Vision 2035 (Wawasan Brunei 2035).
PB would like to acknowledge and give thanks to its BOG for their continued
advice in steering PB to where it is today and to what it will become in the
future. This acknowledgement also extends to Industry partners and stakeholders
who have been with PB throughout its development since its inception.
My sincerest gratitude to the team who have contributed to the development and
sustainability of this website. Thank you for the collaborative and
cooperative spirit dedicated by everyone in PB and I hope that it will sustain
towards the achievement of our vision and mission.
I encourage you to explore our website and find out how you could be involved in
some of the programmes and services we have to offer.
