Purulia Government Engineering College

THE PROMOTING BODY

Being a State Government Department, the “Directorate of Technical Education” under the ‘Higher Education Department’ of “Government of West Bengal” is responsible to propagate the affordable quality technical education in the state of West Bengal as a welfare activity. There are six Government Engineering & Technology Colleges in West Bengal. From a long time (from pre independence era), no new Government Engineering Colleges was established in West Bengal after late nineties but there was a growing demand for new Government Engineering Colleges for meritorious but economically challenged students who cannot afford engineering education from self financing colleges. After some survey, it was found that the concentrations of those students are in western part and north east section of West Bengal. So, Government of West Bengal decided to open two new Government Engineering Colleges, one at Purulia and other at Cooch Behar districts in this year in order to prepare a level ground for opportunities for catering and nucleating even growth.
