JNTU (Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University) was originally ‘The College of Engineering, Vizagpatnam’ at the time of its establishment in 1946. It is now a sprawling campus of 110 acres, green with mango trees in the fast developing Port city of Kakinada, East coast of peninsula India. Kakinada has a rich political literacy and cultural heritage passed on through generations. This college became a constituent of the Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University on 02-10-1972 through an act of legislature along with other sister institutions under the control of the then Director of Technical Education, Government of Andhra Pradesh. Earlier, it was affiliated to Andhra University. In the year 2003 the college has become autonomous. The College is governed by the rules and guidelines provided by the university from time to time. The Principal is the administrative and the academic Head of the College. The college has made rapid strides since its formation and is playing a pivotal role in the technological advances of the region.
The entire academic activity in the college is overseen by the highest body called College Academic Council, which has at least one academician of repute and an industrialist on its body along with senior Professors of the college. Also the entire administrative activity is overseen by the highest body called College Governing Council (CGC) headed by the Vice Chancellor of the University. All the five engineering departments are provided with RCC roof buildings. Additional accommodation for Electronics and Telecommunications Engineering, Computer Science & Engineering and Electrical and Electronics Engineering departments is being provided through new buildings as annexes to the existing ones. Plans are afoot to accommodate teaching and non-teaching staff in newly constructed quarters in place of present 50 year old sheds.
Members of the teaching faculty have authored a good number of research papers, research reports and text-books. Departments in the college have conducted number of summer schools, seminars, workshops, symposia and conferences. In addition, quite a few collaborative research schemes sponsored by CSIR, CRRI, ISRO, BHEL etc have been/are being carried out. The main library is situated in a separated block housing more than 54,000 volumes and contributed 12 numbers of journals maintained by two qualified librarians and necessary supporting staff for 12hrs a day for 6 days and 9.00 am to 1.00 pm on Sunday. In addition, a book-bank with more than 3000 volumes is at the disposal of students for borrowing by BC, SC and ST categories. These books are procured from the funds provided by the Social Welfare Department. Over and above, each of the Engineering Departments has Departmental Libraries to reduce the burden on the Central Library and for the convenience of staff.
The Research and Development activity in the College got a boost with the procurement of modern and sophisticated equipment under MHRD and AICTE schemes. Academically, the post-graduate programmes introduced in 1971 in each of the available disciplines have undergone changes in course-structure and syllabi to meet the demands of the current needs. A new under-graduate programme in Computer Science and Engineering has been introduced subsequently. Another post-graduate programme is added in each of the disciplines along with one in Computer Science and Engineering. Now, the college has five U.G. Programmes and Nine P.G. Programmes to its credit. In addition the college helps unemployed under-employed diploma and degree holders in Engineering to improve their qualifications through its continuing education programmes.
