The Faculty of Engineering and Technology was established in 1985 with the objective to provide outstanding engineering education directed at enriching the quality of life in an emerging knowledge-based society. The mission of the Faculty is to graduate morally conscious and highly competent engineers, conduct internationally recognized research, and provide quality professional and community services. The Faculty operates as an administrative unit within the University and thus is home to over 3000 students and over 200 academic, administrative and technical staff. At present, there are six departments in the Faculty –civil, mechanical, electrical, electronics and communication, and computer engineering, and applied sciences and humanities. Undergraduate program leading to B. Tech. are offered in civil, mechanical, electrical, electronics and communications, and computer engineering. The Faculty has a continuing education programs for in-service engineers leading to B. E. degree in civil, electrical, mechanical, electronics and communications, and computer engineering. The faculty also offers postgraduate programs – M. Tech. (Environmental Sciences and Engineering), M. Tech. (Earthquake Engineering), M. Tech. (Electrical Power Systems Management), M. Tech. (Control and Instrumentation System), M. Tech. (Mechanical Engineering – with specialization in Thermal Engineering, Production and Industrial Engineering, and Machine Design) and M.Sc. (Electronics). The University Polytechnic offers regular and part-time (evening) courses leading to diploma in civil, electrical, mechanical, electronics and communications, and computer engineering. Research programs leading to PhD are also offered by all the departments. All courses of the Faculty are duly approved by the All India Council for Technical Education, and the medium of instruction is English for all the courses.
