UVCE - OUR BELOVED ALMA MATER

The University Visvesvaraya College of Engineering (UVCE) is one of the oldest & most reputed engineering colleges in Bengaluru, India. With a history of over 90 years, UVCE has produced some of the finest engineers in this country. Established in 1917 under the name Government Engineering College by Bharat Ratna Sir. M Visvesvaraya, it was the 5th engineering college to be established in the country

On the formation of Bangalore University in 1964, UVCE became one of the constituent colleges of Bangalore University. This prestigious technical institute imparts technical education leading to Bachelors of Engineering, Masters of Engineering, Masters of Science in Engineering degrees & Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) programs across disciplines in Engineering & Architecture. UVCE has since completed over 93 years of academic excellence since its inception. The college operates out of two premises in Bengaluru – Jnana Bharathi campus & KR Circle campus

UVCE is recognized by the All India Council of Technical Education (AICTE), Government of India and is a recipient of financial aid under World Bank’s Technical Education Quality Improvement Program (TEQIP). UVCE has a NAAC rating of 5 Star for the past 4 consecutive years issued by the National Board of Accreditation.

UVCE not only shapes the careers of its students but also makes them fit to face the real world challenges that are posed in the society. UVCE is witnessing even more positive improvements in terms of the teacher-student partnership in achieving missions and goals. Students endeavor to engage themselves actively in the research area and gain knowledge & experience before they venture either into the professional world or the teaching spectra.
