Achievements

The present SoE is housed in seven buildings, one building each for the six engineering departments, viz., Civil, Mechanical, Food Engineering and Technology, Computer Science & Engineering, Electronics and Communication Engineering and Energy, and one separate building of approximate built-up area of 2980 Sqm for housing common facilities for all the departments under SoE. It has a common drawing hall, Chemistry and Physics laboratories, a common Computer Centre, a lecture hall, lecture gallery, Microsoft Incubation Centre, office of CIIIE and a state-of-the-art video conferencing room. The lecture hall, lecture gallery and class rooms are used for conducting common classes of SoE, as well as for departmental courses of the constituent departments. The administrative set up of the School comprising the Dean’s office, conference room, B Tech Admission, AICTE cell, examination control room are located at this building.

All the six engineering departments have adequate space with sufficient number of class rooms, tutorial rooms, seminar hall, department library and laboratories for UG and PG programmes as well as for research activities. These departments are equipped with all the recent state-of-the-art equipment to support academics and research. The current faculty strength of the school is 77, out of which 47 are with PhD. Every faculty member is motivated to publish per-reviewed article in leading Int’nl journal and conference proceedings.

At present SoE offers six UG and eight PG programmes. The various UG programmes are: B. Tech in (a) Civil Engineering, (b) Computer Science and Engineering, (c) Electronics and Communication Engineering, (d) Mechanical Engineering, (e) Electrical Engineering and (f) Food Engineering Technology. The eight PG programmes running under SoE are: (a) M.Tech in Bio-Electronics, (b) M.Tech in Electronics Design and Technology, (c) M.Tech in Energy Technology, (d) M.Tech in Information Technology, (e) M.Tech in Food Engineering and Technology, (f) M.Tech in Mechanical Engineering, (g) Master of Computer Application and (h) Integrated M. Tech. in Food Engineering and Technology. Most of the students of the AICTE approved M.Tech programmes with valid GATE score receive AICTE’s GATE scholarship. The current strength of students in the school is 1426

The school also offers PhD programmes on all the engineering disciplines. At present more than 150 students are working in this school leading towards PhD.
