About the Institute:

Pondicherry Engineering College was established in 1984 by MHRD, Government of India under the Seventh Five Year Plan to meet the requirement of an engineering institution in the Union Territory of Puducherry.  Ever since its inception, the college has maintained a steady academic and research growth both vertically and horizontally with an aim to offer quality technical education and cater to the diverse requirements of the industries besides the expectation of the prevailing societal system. Eight UG and nine PG programmes in core engineering disciplines besides MCA and Ph D programmes in all engineering disciplines and basic sciences are currently offered in the college. As the first engineering college in the Union Territory of Puducherry, it preserves its uniqueness among all professional institutions which were started later. The college enjoys significant autonomy for administration. The college initially affiliated to Pondicherry University, has been granted ‘permanent affiliation’ as the first and significant step towards attainment of academic autonomy and obtained Autonomous status from 2014-15 onwards.  The Ministry of Human Resource Development, Government of India under the Centrally Sponsored Scheme “RASHTRIYA UCHCHATAR SHIKSHA ABHIYAN (RUSA)” has approved for the Upgradation of the Pondicherry Engineering College to a Technical University and to incorporate it as an affiliating, teaching and research University at Puducherry to facilitate and promote studies, research, technology incubation, product innovation and extension work in Technology, Management and Science and also to achieve excellence in higher and technical education and other matters connected therewith or incidental thereto.

 PEC is ranked 76 in Engineering Category by NIRF India Rankings 2019.

The major strengths of the institution are its location, well-connected by land and (upcoming) air routes to major cities in India, highly qualified faculty and adequate infrastructure. The college, preserving its brand name, attracts the meritorious students of UT of Puducherry in addition to students from neighboring states. The placement of students through campus is progressive since inception. Considering all these aspects, the strategic plan for institutional development for has been prepared with the following specific vision: “To transform this technical Institute into a Technological University with greater autonomy and evolve the university as educational institution of national importance and global eminence”.

 

To become a world-class technological university and to keep abreast with emerging technologies that grow rapidly in all disciplines of engineering due to day-by-day revelation of newer research outcomes and technical know-how, and introduction of faster methodologies, it becomes mandatory that, (i) the faculty and staff have to be trained to improve in terms of qualifications and competency, (ii) academic and non-academic reforms have to be carried out to achieve full academic, administrative and financial autonomies, and (iii) the institute has to be strengthened with improved laboratory and computing facilities, advanced campus networking and upgraded teaching-learning resources in all respects. Further, it is reasonable to state that towards substantial improvement is achieved by the institution to find gainful employment which contributes to the growth of economy and industry of the nation. It is expected that, through the continuous conduction of finishing schools, the soft skills of weaker students will enhance their employability.  Pondicherry Engineering College was established in 1984 by MHRD, Government of India under the Seventh Five Year Plan to meet the requirement of an engineering institution in the Union Territory of Puducherry.  Ever since its inception, the college has maintained a steady academic and research growth both vertically and horizontally with an aim to offer quality technical education and cater to the diverse requirements of the industries besides the expectation of the prevailing societal system.
