Special Correspondent

Jawaharlal Nehru National College of Engineering got the structure constructed at Rs. 3.5 crores

SHIMOGA: The Jawaharlal Nehru National College of Engineering (JNNCE), which is celebrating its silver jubilee, has emerged as one of the leading technical institutions of the Malnad region.

Governor T.N. Chaturvedi will inaugurate the "silver jubilee building" (housing the departments of Electronics and Communication, Telecommunication and Information Science and Engineering) here on Friday.

JNNCE, which belongs to the string of the educational institutions run by the National Education Society (NES), was established in 1980 on a sprawling 59-acre campus on the Sowlanga Road.

It offers eight under graduate courses in engineering — civil, mechanical, electrical, electrical and electronics, computer science and engineering, information science and engineering, electronics and engineering, and telecommunication and engineering and five postgraduate courses in MBA, MCA, M.Tech (CSE), M.Tech (NIE) and M.Tech (Design).

The college boasts of 2,200 students and 250 employees. Its departments of mechanical, civil, electrical and electronics and computer science and engineering are recognised as research centre, which leads to the award of doctoral and M.Sc (engineering) degrees.

Some of its departments are accredited.

The silver jubilee state-of-the-art three-storeyed building was constructed at a cost of Rs. 3.5 crores.

It comprises 16 classrooms, nine laboratories and 13 staff rooms.

The additional facilities provided in the new building are CAD laboratory, HAM club, department libraries, women's waiting room and strong room for the examination section.

The Joint Secretary of NES, S.V. Thimmaiah, said NES was founded by a group of philanthropists, freedom fighters and leaders of the nationalist movement under the leadership of the former Deputy Chairman of the Rajya Sabha, S.V. Krishnamurthy, S.R. Nagappa Shetty, D.S. Dinkar and Girimaji N. Rajgopal.

Today, it has grown as one of the biggest educational institutions of the Malnad region running 33 institutions.
