University College of Engineering (UCoE) at
Punjabi UniversityCampus Patialacame into existence in the year 2003, after long serious deliberations for about six months between the senior faculty of the University, technical experts and the Vice-Chancellorregarding the need of quality education in the field of Engineering and Technology in the state of Punjab. Punjabi University has shown a remarkable growth and excellence in the various fields over the last 40 years and has been accredited with Five Star status by National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC). Keeping in view the increasing needs of technical education and lack of proper faculty and facilities available in many recently established engineering colleges and feeling deeply concerned with the deterioration in the quality standards in the technical education, the University decided to use its potential for enriching the aspiring students and their parents with quality technical education in the state of Punjab, Overwhelming response from the people was witnessed during counselling conducted by Punjab Technical University, Jalandhar, when UCoE was the first wherein all the seats in the three field of engineering ( Computer, Electronics & Communicationand Mechanical) were filled in the first counseling itself. This exhibits the tremendous faith, the people of Punjab have on the capacity and capability of Punjabi University, Patiala.
The University, on its part, has drawn up a master plan to be executed in three phases to provide technical education in the basic and specialized fields in the time to come. Although only three branches leading to B.Tech. degree have been offered in the first phase, second phase would introduce M.Tech. programmes in various disciplines besides adding another three branches namely
Micro-electronics, Power Engineeringand Bio-informaticsand the third phase would include the further expansion and stress on the research work and establishment of a separate research and development centre with active involvement and participation of the industry. This centre would strive for providing solution to the technical problems of the industry and would suggest ways and means for overall growth of the industryin the region.
For its first phase, an area of 14 acres of land in the University Campus for the construction of the instructional area, laboratories, computer and informatics centre,
library, workshops, administrative offices, hostels, one each for the boys and girls with a capacity of 400 each, a swimming pool and landscapes with an approximate cost of Rs. 25 Crores: Total building area in this phase would be more than 32,000 sq. meters. The University plans to equip about 20 laboratories and workshops with the modern and latest equipment and provide all other modern amenities and teaching aids in its academic area such as library, informatics centre, class rooms, seminar rooms etc. and as well as in both the hostels.
UCoE is committed to recruit highly qualified and best suited faculty for imparting education to its students. The curriculum would be designed and updated frequently as per the changing needs of the industry and technology advancements. It would provide flexibility for promoting inter-disciplinary approach and would switch over to the credit system in due course. It plans to provide on-line accessibility to the various libraries of repute in India and abroad and providing internet connectivity to all the students even in the hostels.
UCoE will provide opportunities and encourage its students to participate in the extracurricular activities such as
NCC, NSS, youth welfare and cultural programmes, debates, tech fests, sports etc. Their interaction with the other students of the University in such programmes is bound to contribute towards their overall personality development.
A constant active interaction with the industry will be promoted by holding regular extension lectures from technical experts from the industrial houses and the frequent visits of the students to the industry, assigning the field/project work to the students and organizing workshops and seminars on various specific themes.
placementcell has been established by the Punjabi University for arranging the training and final placement of its students. The cell is in constant touch with the industrial houses and is entrusted with the responsibility of arranging on & off campus interviews of its students with the executives of the industry and projecting its students by highlighting their achievements and potential for delivering goods as per the requirements of the industry.
Several clubs dealing with various activities such as Technical, Cultural, Literary etc. have been formed by the students so as to bolster a holistic development of the student's personality.
