Shri Guru Gobind Institute of Engineering and Technology

Shri Guru Gobind Singhji Institute of Engineering and Technology (SGGSIE&T) at Nanded is an autonomous institute set up and entirely funded by the Government of Maharashtra. The institute is approved by the All India Council for Technical Education, Government of India. The institute is entirely autonomous - academically, financially and administratively - and is one of the five such institutes in Maharashtra.[3][4]

The institute is located at a campus of over 18.62 hectares. The land for the institute was donated by Sant Baba Harnam Singh Langer Sahib Gurudwara trust, Nanded. The Institute is named after the tenth Sikh guru, Gobind Singh.[3] [1] The institute is affiliated to Swami Ramanand Teerth Marathwada University, Nanded,[3] It started with two under-graduate courses in 1981. The institute currently offers under-graduate, post-graduate and doctoral courses in science, engineering and technology.[1]

SGGSIE&T is currently chaired by Baba Kalyani, who is also the chairman of Bharat Forge Ltd..[3]


The project was approved by the AICTE on 17th December 1981. The institute was registered under the Society's Act, 1960, and was fully funded by the Government of Maharashtra.

The Sant Shri Baba Harnamji trust donated a 46 acres land for the institute. Hence the institute was named after the 10th Sikh Guru, Shri Guru Gobind Singhji. The Governing Board, with the Director of Technical Education at its helm, overlooked the completion of the project. In 1983 Prof. B.M. Naik was appointed as the first full-time director.

In 2004, a committee headed by Dr. F.C. Kholi conducted a survey which identified three engineering colleges with potential for excellence. SGGSIE&T was one of the three selected institutes. The Government of Maharashtra took the initiative of granting autonomous status to these engineering colleges under its TEQIP program.

The SGGS Institute of Engineering and technology is one of the selected few engineering colleges to be offered total autonomy- academic, financial and administrative. In the Eligibility Criterion of NPIU, Institute secured 59 Marks out of 63 and is selected under TEQIP for assistance and provided stiff competition to other institutes.

Mr. B.N. Kalyani, an eminent industrialist, heading the Kalyani Group of Companies, has been nominated by the Government of Maharashtra as Chairman of the Governing Board. The Government has also appointed renowned personalities form business and industry, academics and its senior administrative cadre on the Governing Board. The Institute will continue to receive block grants from the Government of Maharashtra, from time to time. The SGGS Institute of Engineering and Technology enjoys a sprawling campus of over 46 acres, donated by Sant Baba Harnam Singh Langer sahib Gurudwara trust and is affiliated to Swami Ramanand Teerth Marathwada University, Nanded.


The institute is an autonomous institute and has been approved by th All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE).[3] In 2011 it had a first year intake capacity of 575 for its under-graduate courses which included 105 seats under AICTE's tuition fee waiver scheme.[4]
