History & Foundation[edit]

The foundation stone of the institute was laid in May, 1986 by the then Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh, Vir Bahadur Singh. The first director of the institute was Prof. Ram Singh Nirjar,[3] who went on to become the Chairman of All India Council of Technical Education AICTE. He assumed office as the first director of the institute (then known as "Bundelkhand Engineering College") in 1988.

The institute started with two branches - Computer Science and Engineering, and Electronics and Instrumentation Engineering, with an intake of 30 students in each. Now the institute has seven undergraduate. courses and five postgraduate courses with annual intake around 475 in each year.

The campus added two additional branches - Mechanical Engineering and Civil Engineering - with an intake of 20 students each in 1990. In 1996, Chemical Engineering with an intake of 30 students was started and in 2000 Information Technology with intake of 40 students was added. In the same year, the intake of Mechanical Engineering, and Computer Science and Engineering, were raised to 45 and 60 students respectively, and Electronics and Instrumentation Engineering was rechristened as Electronics and Communication Engineering and intake was raised to 60. In 2006, the intake of Civil Engineering was increased to 45. From 2007 a four-year B. Tech programme in Electrical Engineering with an intake of 60 students was added to the existing B. Tech programmes.

In 2005 two postgraduate programmes in Environmental Engineering and Construction Technology and Management (in the Civil Engineering Department) and one in Manufacturing Science and Technology (in the Mechanical Engineering Department) with intake of 18 students each, was started. In 2006 an M. Tech. programme in Digital Communication System (in the Electronics and Communication Engineering Department) with an intake of 20 students was added to the list of postgraduate programmes. In 2007, a two-year management programme leading to an M.B.A. degree with an intake of 60 students, was started. The total intake of students in the institute, including M. Tech. programmes, is 474.


The institute admits students for its Bachelor in Technology (B.Tech) programme from all over India through the competitive Common Entrance Test SEE-UPTU.


For the academic session 2012-13 the institute was ranked 5th (next to Harcourt Butler Technological Institute, Kanpur and Institute of Engineering and Technology, Lucknow) in terms of university results declared by UPTU among all the state level engineering institutes affiliated to the university.[4]
