What are the engineering schools under MHTCET


Veermata Jijabai Technological Institute Mumbai

Veermata Jijabai Technological Institute ((VJTI) is an engineering school in Mumbai, Maharashtra, India and one of the oldest engineering schools in Asia. Founded in 1887 and formerly known as Victoria Jubilee Technical InstituteOn January 26, 1997, it took its current name.[1] VJTI is an academically and administratively autonomous institute, but attached to the University of Mumbai. The institute is financially supported by the government of Maharashtra.

After receiving academic and administrative autonomy in 2004, VJTI became operational under the direction of a Board of Governors.[2] VJTI is also the Central Technical Institute of Maharashtra State. The institute trains students in engineering and technology for certification,[3] Diploma, graduation, postgraduate and doctoral degrees. VJTI has a reputation for being incredibly academically selective, with the admission process being dependent on the MH-CET admission score.


Foundation and early years (1887–1960) [edit]

The institute was founded in 1887 and started with two departments, the Sir JJ School of Mechanical Engineering and the Ripon Textile School.[1]

Development and post-autonomy (1960 - today) [edit]

Prior to 1960, the Victoria Jubilee Technical Institute was the only institute offering engineering and postgraduate courses at the University of Bombay and enjoyed de facto autonomy. In 1997 the institute was renamed Veermata Jijabai Technological Institute.

The institute received financial and academic autonomy from June 21, 2004. As a result, in June 2004 the autonomous VJTI introduced a revised curriculum for its undergraduate and postgraduate level students by introducing a credit system. The revised examination scheme, which follows an assessment system and a letter grade system, has been implemented. An important part of the curriculum is the practice-oriented project in the last year of graduation and the dissertations of the doctoral students as well as the in-house training of the graduate students in the third year.

Major changes under the autonomy are the establishment of distance learning programs (DEP) with IIT Bombay, with VJTI being a distant center. likewise the modernization of the library into a digital library. Postgraduates can view and print the journals online all week. Several student societies, inter-college festivals and the college magazine ‘Nirmaan’ serve as a platform to strengthen the personality of the students. In March 2010 VJTI initiated a newsletter called “VJ.News”.

As part of a World Bank grant, the Technical Education Quality Improvement Program (TEQIP), a modernization provides central computing facilities for students who also have access to improved laboratory and workshop facilities. The faculty of the institute carries out testing and consulting work. Industries has sponsored laboratories - for example the high-voltage laboratory courtesy of Siemens; and the Computational Fluid Dynamics Laboratory, courtesy of the Bhabha Atomic Research Center.

Individual student profiles through departmental brochures are positioned centrally at the institute's ‘Training and Placement Office’. The office works with over a hundred companies and provides students with employment and on-the-job training through on-campus recruitment programs. In 2010, VJTI Electronics & Telecommunication Engineering added to its list of streams.

VJTI was awarded the title “Knowledge Partner” for the Indian government's upcoming competence center for sports textiles.[4]

Organization and administration [edit]

Leadership [edit]

At the institutional level, VJTI is led by a board of governors with a chairman, the director as a member and other members of the board of directors. Members are industry bosses, prominent VJTI alumni and heads of other educational institutions.

The key people in the implementation of the institute's activities are the director, who is supported by the dean (academic programs), the dean (student activities), the dean (resource mobilization and financing) and the dean (research and development) as well as the heads of the institute becomes the departments.[5]

Departments [edit]

The institute has 12 academic departments. Of these, nine offer certificates, diplomas, degrees, postgraduate courses and / or doctoral programs. These are:[6]

Three academic departments have supporting functions and run basic courses for study and diploma programs, but do not offer their own programs. These are:

Academics [edit]

Admissions [edit]

  • Admission to Bachelor courses is only based on the results of the MHT-CET [7]

The admission process is carried out separately by the Technical Education Directorate along with 5 other autonomous institutes in Maharashtra. The respective admission rounds are called CAPAI (Centralized Admission Process to Autonomous Institutes).[8]

  • Admission to Bachelor's degree courses is based on the results of the grade 10 exam.
  • MCA approvals are based on the results in the MCA-CET.
  • Admission to postgraduate engineering courses is granted through GATE or sponsorship.[9]

The Society of Robotics & Automation was founded in 2008 under the mechanical engineering department of VJTI. The student society works in the field of robotics and automation. Older students train students and support them in carrying out projects, participating in competitions, conducting industrial and research projects.[11] Students from the Society for Robotics and Automation won the first round of the DRDO Golden Jubilee Students Competition, which was organized by the DRDO in cooperation with the ADE and for which they received a cash prize of Rs. 50,000. You were one of ten teams that represented your institute at the second round in Bangalore in May 2009.[12] The students from SRA also represent VJTI at the ROBOCON (Asia-Pacific Robot Contest), took 9th place at Robocon 2011 and were awarded the prize for the “most economical robot” in the same year.[13]

Inferno robotics [edit]

Inferno Robotics, the official organization of the Institute of Combat Robotics, was founded in 2013. The team designs, simulates, analyzes and manufactures robots for various tournaments, with an emphasis on combat robotics for various events across India. It also offers lectures, mentors and trains students for a better experience in engineering, real-world situations and crisis management. In 2014, Team Inferno won six consecutive robotics championships. In 2015, Team Inferno took fifth place at National Robowars among 36 teams from all over India at Technovanza 2015. In 2016 Inferno took third place at the Robotic Challenge Plinth in Vadodara.

Society of Automotive Engineers, VJTI Collegiate Chapter [edit]

The Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE), VJTI Collegiate Chapter, was founded in 2008. The SAE offers a platform for students who are interested in the field of vehicle technology. SAE originally consisted of two separate clubs: VJTI Racing and Aero VJTI. However, Aero VJTI no longer falls under the auspices of SAE and has been an independent student body since 2014.

‘Team Motorbreath’ from VJTI Racing represents the VJTI in competitions in the field of rural vehicles such as Baja SAE from SAE International.

Aero VJTI [edit]

Aero VJTI is a club with a passion for the design and development of remote controlled aircraft. It already took part in international competitions in 2011. Since then, Aero VJTI has competed in five competitions including the American Institute of Aeronautics and the Astronautics Design / Build / Fly. Each competition requires students to design and manufacture a remote-controlled aircraft according to a rigorous mission profile and the design constraints set out in a problem statement. VJTI achieved top positions in all competitions. The students also conduct aircraft construction workshops at VJTI and other colleges in Mumbai. This is done with a view to disseminating knowledge about model aircraft, aviation and other related topics among fellow students.
