Baba Banda Singh Bahadur Engineering College (BBSBEC), Fatehgarh Sahib, Punjab, India was established in 1993 by the Baba Banda Singh Bahadur Educational Trust formed under the patronage of Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee with the approval of the Government of Punjab.
The college is approved by AICTE, New Delhi, and the Ministry of H.R.D., Government of India and is affiliated to Punjab Technical University, Jalandhar and now recent batches with Maharaja Ranjit Singh Punjab Technical University, Bathinda. BBSBEC was the first college to get its courses accredited by the National Board of Accreditation among the colleges affiliated to Punjab Technical University, Jalandhar.
The college started with BTech programs in Computer Science and Engineering, Electronics and Communication Engineering, and Mechanical Engineering with a strength of 30 students in each major. In 1997, the intake was increased to 60 students in each discipline. The intake was further increased to 90 students each in Computer Science and Engineering, and Electronics and Communication Engineering in 2000-2001. Two new programs - B.Tech. in Information Technology with an intake of 60 students and B.Tech in Electrical Engineering with a strength of 60 students - were introduced from the 2001-2002 and 2002-2003 sessions respectively. In the 2006-2007 session, the intake was increased to 120 students each in Computer Science and Engineering, Electronics and Communication, and Mechanical Engineering.
