About the institute:
The foundation of college was laid under the guidance of Shri Narayan Dutt Tiwari, Govt. of India on April 20, 1986 during the reign of Late Chief Minister Shri Veer Bahadur Singh when 155 acres of land was allotted for college by the UP Govt. Academic session in B.E. was started with 2 branches CSE and ECE in year 1991 with a well planned educational programme,similar to the one followed at IITs and RECs / NITs of the country for the development of technology & engineering education facilities in the Kumaon Region.. Seeing the availability, capability and usefulness of land, college prepared a master plan and project report regarding development of college in different fields in the year 1996, which was approved by administrative council. Now, it has entered in its second phase with the addition of two Graduate engineering programmes i.e., Mechanical Engineering and Biochemical Engineering and one Post Graduate programme i.e., Masters of Computer Applications. Besides this, several other infastructural facilities for faculty and students, such as hostels, staff residential campus, departmental buildings, students' activity club and a multipurpose hall have been developed. Under the Technical Education Quality Improvement Programme (TEQIP) we have been allotted Rs 4.19 Crore through the World Bank in the initial phase. This is for strengthening labs, library, internet facility, development of Computer Centre, and other infrastructural facilities, training of staff etc. The hostels are to be rennovated and internet facility is to be provided to the students in the hostels, too. An atmosphere conducive to learning and all-round personality development of the students is being created. Emphasis is being laid on self discipline & mutual respect. Efforts are being made to upgrade this College as the National Institute of Technology (NIT) of Uttarakhand State.
