Amrita School of Engineering (ASE) is an engineering institution, part of Amrita University located in Ettimadai, Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu, India. It is located on a 420 acres (1.7 km2) campus at the foot hills of the Western Ghats. ASE provides UG programmes in seven branches and PG programmes including MCA, and M.Tech in eight core areas.

History[edit]

The beginnings of Amrita University can be traced to 1994 when a School of Engineering was started in an obscure village named Ettimadai, at the foothills of Bouluvanpatty ranges of the Western Ghats in the Coimbatore district of Tamil Nadu. At that time there were 120 students and 13 faculty members. Today, Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham has five campuses in three different states of India. There is a student population of over 12,000 and faculty strength of nearly 1500. Over 120 UG, PG and doctoral programs are offered.

When Amrita became a university in January 2003, it was the youngest group of institutions to be conferred this status. As Amrita's first campus, Coimbatore is home to the administrative headquarters of Amrita University.

Campus[edit]

Schools of Engineering and Business in addition to Departments of Social Work and Communication are located on this campus. Research centers include AMBE, CEN, CES and Cybersecurity. The campus has nearly 3500 students and about 600 faculty and staff members.

Academics[edit]

The college follows a CGPA method of grading on a scale of 10. The yearly tech fest of the college is called Anokha and the cultural fest is called Amritotsavam.[1]

Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham University is accredited with the highest grade of 'A' by the National Assessment and Accreditation Council.[2] A review report of the Ministry of Human Resources Development listed Amrita in the top category of all Indian universities.[3]
