The Govind Ballabh Pant Engineering College (also referred to as GBPEC or, colloquially, Pant) is a public engineering college located in Okhla, Delhi, India. It was established in 2007 by the Directorate of Training and Technical Education, Government of National Capital Territory of Delhi. GBPEC is affiliated to the Guru Gobind Singh Indraprastha University.[1]


As compared to the sanctioned intake in degree-level courses of engineering in metropolitan cities, Delhi had the lowest intake among Bangalore, Mumbai and Kolkata. Therefore, the need for further growth of educational facilities in engineering and technology at the degree level was felt.

GBPEC was inaugurated by Delhi's chief minister Smt. Sheila Dikshit in 2007. Smt. Dikshit said, "Setting up of the Govind Ballabh Pant Engineering College in the campus of the Govind Ballabh Pant Polytechnic Institute in the year 2007, is a part of this endeavor of the Government of Delhi".


GBPEC covers an area of around 2 acres in Okhla Industrial Estate - III, Delhi, India on the sidelines of Aravali Hills, adjoining the Govind Ballabh Pant Polytechnic Institute and Banarsidas Chandiwala Institute of Hotel Management and Catering Technology near Kalkaji Temple on Maa Anandamayi Marg, Kalkaji, Okhla, Delhi. It shares its boundaries with the Govind Ballabh Pant Polytechnic Institute and IIIT Delhi.

GBPEC started offering Bachelor of Technology programs in the disciplines of Electronics & Communication Engineering (ECE); Mechanical & Automation Engineering (MAE) in 2007; and from the academic year 2010-11, Computer Science & Engineering (CSE), with an intake of 60 each. The institute, since its inception, has made rapid strides by way of developing excellent and world class laboratories.


The admission towards a full-time Bachelor of Technology degree in GBPEC is through the national level Common Entrance Test (CET) conducted by the Guru Gobind Singh Indraprastha University. 85% of the total seats in the college are reserved for students from the Delhi Region (candidates passing the qualifying exam from the recognized Board / College / Institution located within the National Capital Territory of Delhi) and 15% of the total seats for candidates belonging to outside Delhi Region (candidates passing the qualifying exam from the recognized Board / College / Institution located outside the National Capital Territory of Delhi).

To appear in the CET, candidates need to buy the Engineering and Architecture Admission Brochure along with Application Form of the Guru Gobind Singh Indraprastha University and submit the Application Form at the university counter by hand or by post or online. The Admission Brochure is available in the month of February–March.

Advanced Microwave Lab at GBPEC

GBPEC has developed an advanced Laboratory for the research purpose in the field of Microwave Engineering in the Department of Electronics & Communication Engineering. This is a unique testing facility for testing antennas. This laboratory has a tremendous potential for providing specialized and unique services in the area of consultancy and design, calibration & testing of Antenna, far-field near-field testing and Training, Research & Development and Certification etc. for the Industry/Defense Organizations & Space Organizations. This testing facility for microwave antennas and systems can be classified into outdoor and indoor test ranges. Due to the weather limitations and other demerits like EMI/EMC problems, ground effects etc. indoor ranges have become very popular over last few decades. The indoor test range can be divided into far field and near field range. This facility is designed for carrying out Near field and far field measurements. This laboratory also provide Radar Cross Section Measurements (Both Mono-static and Bi-static ) of standard targets and assorted complex shapes and models of warship/tanks/aircraft can be carried out in this chamber. This lab can also be used for RF-ID antennas and applicators evaluation. The design and selection of absorbers make this facility suitable/extendable for Near Field and EMI/EMC measurements, making it a unique/only facility of its type with any of Technical Institution including IITs.

Training And Placement Cell[edit]

The T&P Department provides active support in placing the students in industries for summer internship and in final placement.

College Societies[edit]

GBPEC has a student chapter of SAE INDIA (Society of automotive Engineers India) and IEEE(Institute of Electronics and Electrical Engineers).

Festivals and other activities[edit]

Skasolit was the first version of the Annual Cultural Festival of GBPEC.
