Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, the first Prime Minister of India, laid the foundation stone for the S.V.University College of Engineering on 13th October 1959. In the four and half decades, it has become a premier technological institution in India due to the untiring the efforts of the faculty and students.
At the inception, the College offered three conventional disciplines of Civil, Electrical and Mechanical Engineering, leading to the Degree of Bachelor of Engineering. Subsequently, new disciplines and courses have been introduced both at undergraduate and Post-graduate levels, in tune with the changing needs and scenario in the field of technical education. At present, the College is offering 4 year B.Tech. Programmes in Chemical, Civil, Electrical and Electronics, Electronics and Communication, Mechanical and Computer Science Engineering and 4 Semester M.Tech programmes with ten specializations. More than fifty candidates were awarded Ph.D. degrees and a good number of research works are in progress. The College has extensive building accommodation comprising lecture and seminar halls, drawing halls, administration and office accommodation, faculty rooms, laboratories and workshops for different Departments. There are four hostel blocks - two for B.Tech. one for M.Tech., and one for women students. Other infrastructure includes a College Computer Centre, Departmental libraries, book-bank etc. Adequate facilities are available for games and sports activities including separate Gym for boys and girls. The curriculum is of good standard and updated at regular intervals to incorporate the current technological trends. The standard of instruction imparted is of high order. The faculty are experienced and highly qualified. They are up to date in Teaching, Research and Consultancy. The institution has a strong tradition of conducting tests and examinations in the best possible manner. The assessment of students has always been fair, reliable and trustworthy.
Many International / National Conferences, Seminars, Workshops and other Continuing Education Programmes have been organized by various Departments. In each Department Technical Associations exist with students as office-bearers along with faculty advisors. Seminars, quizzes, guest lectures, group discussions, educational tours are some of the programmes undertaken by the Associations. National level technical paper presentation contests for students (SIGMOID, CHATURYA etc.) are being organized. The mega annual cultural event Rhapsody speaks of the talents inherent in the engineering students. Students are encouraged to participate in cultural activities conducted by other Colleges and they regularly bag prizes. The various wall magazines project the creative thinking of the students. NSS, NCC, Rotary club, Environmental club function effectively to inculcate social commitment. Thus, the College provides a scope for the overall personality development of the students.
The performance of students in competitive examinations like Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE), Indian Engineering Services (IES), Common Admission Test (CAT) for management studies is quite impressive and richly accredited. After successful completion of B.Tech. students get seats in the institutions of excellence both in India and abroad. The placement cell functions effectively and the students find placements in reputed companies and organizations.
The alumni of this College have been occupying apex position in organizations of repute both in our Country as well as in other countries of the world. The success of these institutions is based on continuous maintenance of quality in technical education and a crystal clear vision for the future.
