The institute Established in 1981, Shri Guru Gobind Singhji Institute of Engineering and Technology (SGGSIET), Nanded, is a promising leader in the area of technical education, research and technology transfer. It is 100% grant-in aid from Government of Maharashtra. The institute is approved by the All India Council for Technical Education, Government of India. Institute offers 10 undergraduate and 10 postgraduate programs. It also offers Ph. D. program under its affiliating University, Swami Ramanand Teerth Marathwada University (SRTMU), Nanded and under Quality Improvement Program of Ministry of HRD, Government of India, New Delhi. The institute has acquired full autonomous status from June 2004. Pragmatic Management of the Institute has taken proactive steps to raise the institute to greater heights. The Institute has state of the art equipment and machinery for teaching as well as research/consultancy services. Faculty have contributed for laboratory development through various funding agencies like AICTE, DST, BARC, NRB, etc. other than the funding received under two phases of TEQIP and from Government of Maharashtra. Four departments of the institute are recipientof DST-FIST sponsored laboratories. Faculty research abilities have led to the establishment of a "Center of Excellence" in the area of Signal and Image Processing (S&IP) under TEQIP. The Institute has a very progressive and pragmatic approach in providing its services to all its stakeholders. The Institute has collaborations with a number of premier institutes (including foreign universities) and industries through which opportunities like internships, credit transfers, industry relevant projects, etc are made available for the students. The students have also taken due advantage and performed par excellence in placement, higher education in India and abroad, entrepreneurship, administrative and engineering services. The students have exhibited their overall development through participation in socially relevant projects and activities. The research culture of the institute has been proven through publication in peer reviewed national/international journals, reputed international conferences. Many faculties are reviewers for international journals and have published books. Establishment of Innovation Laboratory, incubation centre and participation of students in various innovation projects is a key feature of the institution.

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]

SGGSIE&T is currently chaired by Shri Sunil Raithatha, who is also the chairman of Chairman and Managing Director, Vinodrai Engineers Pvt. Ltd, Jalna


The project was approved by the AICTE on 17 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.

Shri Sunil Raithatha, an eminent industrialist, 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]
