The University College of Engineering, Kakatiya University public engineering institute located in kothagudem, India. Formerly known as the Kothagudem School of Mines(KSM). It is the First mining college in Telangana and the second in India.


The first of all UCE, UCE(KU)] erstwhile KSM, started functioning in 1956 with single department Mining Engineering Established in 1976, the University College of Engineering, Kakatiya University, is the oldest institution for mining in Telangana. It was formerly known as Kothagudem School of Mines, originally established under osmania University. It was later made a college under Kakatiya University under which many names were changed for the institute now settling with the name University college of engineering.[1]

The college moved to its present permanent building in 1996( except the mining department). Today it is the biggest among the campus colleges of Kakatiya University. There are 103 non teaching staff members, and around 20 regular professors. The college offers undergraduate B.Tech in CSE, EEE, Mining ECE,IT courses.


The college admits undergraduate students through the statewide EAMCET exam conducted every year. It offers Bachelor of Engineering (BE) courses in multiple disciplines. The institution boasts good academic performance, which would have been much better if the institution was made autonomous or made as a separate technical University, independent of the great Ku.
