M.B.M. Engineering College (Mugneeram Bangur Memorial Engineering College, MBM), Jodhpur is one of the oldest engineering colleges in India.

History[edit]

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 INR 8,00000 (8 Lacs) from Seth Ramcooverji Bangur of Didwana and INR 2,00000 (2 Lacs) from the Hanwant Benevolent Fund. Mathuradas Mathur and A. D. Bohra started the college 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 moved to its present location covering an area of 92,000 sq.m. and new hostels were constructed. With the establishment of Jodhpur University (now J.N. Vyas University) in July 1962, this college became its Faculty of Engineering.[1]

V. G. Garde became Principal on 3 December 1951. Professors who later joined the college include Hari Singh Choudhary, S.C. Goyal, R.M. Advani, M. L. Mathur, Alam Singh, S. Divakaran, V. S. Bansal, D. C. Surana, and BC Punamia.[1]
