The M.B.M. Engineering College was established on 15 August 1951, by the Government of Rajasthan. This was made possible by a donation of Rupees 8,00000/- from Seth Ramcooverji Bangur of Didwana, to perpetuate the memory of his late brother Seth Mugneeramji Bangur, together with Rupees 2,00000/- from the Hanwant Benevolent Fund. Through the efforts of Shri Mathuradas Mathur and Professor A. D. Bohra, the college started functioning in the Ugamji's Bungalow near the railway over bridge leading to Sojati Gate, within two months of obtaining approval from the Government. The laboratories and hostels were housed in the old guest house in Ratanada. After a couple of years, the college was sifted to its present location covering an area of 92000 sq.m. and new hostels were constructed. With the establishment of the Jodhpur University (now J.N. Vyas University) in July 1962, this college became its constituent Faculty of Engineering.
