Walchand college of Engineering has been one of the premier technical institutions in India and it is imparting quality technical education, since 1947. This college is autonomous government aided college, having all of its under graduate (UG), post graduate (PG) and Ph D programs approved by AICTE New Delhi and affiliated to Shivaji University Kolhapur. The college also runs four Diploma programs. The college’s alumni have been spread over different parts of the world and many of them are working in top positions of their respective domains. The college is proud of its alumni.
After having received the autonomous status in the year 2007, the college invited many US academic experts at the campus. They helped the college to design and implement world class curriculum. The curriculum has a component of academic credit transfers among other autonomous institutes.
The prime vision of the college is “To produce capable graduate Engineers with an aptitude for research and leadership”. In line with this vision, we strive to get the vision fulfilled. In line with the vision, the curriculum has a component of internships for final year students of UG and PG. The curriculum, its design, implementation, assessment and evolutionary way of improvement have been centered around making students’ future a “bright”.
With the college’s achievement of national second rank in performance of implementing “Technical Education Quality Improvement Program (TEQIP) phase-I”, the college’s performance in TEQIP phase-II has been adjudged as excellent. These programs focused on strengthening of UG and PG infrastructure respectively.
For the overall development in future, the college has made a master plan in which renovation of civil building infrastructure, concept of center for learning factory, center for advanced research etc., have been planned.
The college has very good ambience for promoting quality education and research, with which all of its stake holders have a strong confidence that the college will soon become a world class institute. In this context, I wish each and every well wisher and contributor of the college a GREAT SUCCESS.
