Best Engineering College in Haryanaby Aman Sharma Educational Blogger &Content Writer
Technological innovation has long been the key to growth and prosperity of a country, and engineering has been an important driver of this innovation. Indeed, the development and institutionalization of the engineering disciplines in various universities provided much of the talent behind domination of world markets. Engineering disciplines integrate scientific principles with practically oriented research, providing systems and processes that themselves create ways of acquiring new knowledge. This integration makes engineering critical to successful industrial innovation.
This aspect has laid a solid foundation for many engineering colleges across country because a major percentage of youth are interested in attaining an engineering degree with the hope of a better prospect. Furthermore, with ever increasing economic development and growth worldwide, it is clear that the best engineers will be in dire need at home and foreign lands.
Looking at the changing scenario on the country’s canvas, Vidypeeth Education Trust (VPET), an organization dedicated to the cause of education in Panipat District and Haryana, decided to set up Panipat Institute of Engineering and Technology (PIET), which is affiliated to Kurukshetra Universty, Kurukshetra and also has the approval of AICTE, Government of India. The campus is very ideally located on the Delhi-Panipat lane of the national highway number 1 and adds to the convenience of travelling for students from all directions, especially Delhi, which is only a 50 minute travel from the border. it also covers main Haryana cities viz. Kurukshetra, Karnal, Gharaunda, Panipat, Ganaur, Sonipat on the main route, Rohtak, Jind, Hissar, Gauhana and Radaur etc on the side routes, all surrounding villages and further extending into Shamli which falls in Uttar Pradesh. So many more students come from all states of India from J&K in North to Jharkhand in the central India and quite a few others from Nepal, Bhutan and Bangladesh.
The campus is so vast, looks like an empire with tall structures, inside so beautiful and soothing. The spacious, well lighted and well furnished class rooms are air-conditioned to ensure day long ease to the aspirants to focus on their curriculum and other activities. The campus is spread over 19 acres, 75% of which is the green area. It has a book rich library and 20 computer labs arrayed with 1200 computers complemented by a round the clock Wi-Fi facility and a Net-Café to enable students explore the globe. There are three hostels for boys and girls as well as a faculty resident area. Hostels too have a choice of AC/Air-cooled options. There are 28 science labs and workshops equipped with latest tools and an open air theater built on Roman design of architecture to seat 3000+ spectators, a food canteen for all in addition to the hostlers, stationery shop and banking services etc.
The challenge for universities is to design programs that retain the rigour of engineering while broadening the curriculum to address communication across cultures, management within and across organizations, intellectual property and technology transfer issues, financing innovation, knowledge of regulatory environments, and so on. PIET’s global tie-ups and student/faculty exchange programs with countries like Singapore, USA, UK, Germany, Sweden and Holland etc. are a result of this challenge. It will help to meet the need to design curricula to attract and prepare students for the current and future workplace, where the need for multidisciplinary skills is increasingly the norm. In other words it will help in better employability. We have in place programmes at the undergraduate level that introduce cross-disciplinary courses or certificate programs. These include entrepreneurship or management of technology, and a number of joint degree programs combined with engineering and/or business. In addition
