Ujjain Engineering College, Ujjain formerly known as Govt. Engineering College, Ujjain was established in 1966 by Govt. of Madhya Pradesh with a view to improve the technical education. Qualified Engineering graduates may thus be produced who could bear the responsibility of providing impetus to growing industrialization of the country. Initially there were only three branches of engineering i.e. Civil Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Electrical Engineering. Later on Electronics Engineering (1985) and Chemical Engineering (1986) branches were introduced. From Session 2001-2002 Bachelor of Engineering in Computer Science and Engineering course has also started. College Also run post graduate program in engineering. (M.E.) in various streams and offers M.Tech in Chemical engineering stream. Professors at the college are one of the most qualified in the Technical education stream. Many of the Professors hold Ph. D. (most of them from IIT)

The college was declared autonomous by the state Govt. in the year 1997. Under this arrangement it is governed by a Governing Body, whose Chairman is minister of Man Power Planning Department of Govt. of M.P. and Secretary is Principal, Engineering College, Ujjain.
