Message from President

Dear Friends,

In the early part of the twentieth century, the architects of the Constitution of India visualized and concluded that the education system has to be a powerful instrument of social, economic and cultural transformation necessary for the realization of India's national goals. Their dream then was to develop an education system that would increase national productivity, achieve social & national integration, accelerate the process of modernization and cultivate social, moral and spiritual values. Since its inception, Shri Vile Parle Kelavani Mandal (SVKM) has always strived to contribute to this cause of nation building.

Given this background, especially in this era of competition in every sphere of life, a country like ours needs to be at the fore-front of technological innovation. It needs engineering professionals with technical skills at par with the best in the world. It is with this focus that SVKM has laid the foundation stone of Dwarkadas J. Sanghvi College of Engineering, twenty-five years ago. Since the year 1994, the College has proven itself to be one of the best institutes in the state and this is abundantly reflected in the success of its students in academics; in securing admissions to top universities in India and abroad as well as in securing placements in some of the best companies.

All the programs, run by the college are accredited by the National Board of Accreditation (NBA) and we are indeed very happy to continue getting this recognition that is needed to enhance the status & further achievements of our students in their career. The college has also applied for accreditation to NAAC and the final evaluation team’s visit is scheduled in a couple of months time.

As the college completes 25 years, it is now time to launch this institution to the next level. We are happy to announce that, considering the overall achievements & progress made by the college, it has now been granted “Autonomous Status” by the University Grants Commission (UGC) for a period of 10 years, starting from the current academic year 2019-20.

Considering the long term goal of the institute, it is our firm belief that the research activities have also to be given a major thrust & all efforts are being made to enhance the same. Efforts are also being made to enhance the teaching learning process on a continuous basis in the institute.

During this twenty-fifth year, we reiterate our commitment to our cause of creating a breed of engineers with not just excellent knowledge, but with a keen sense of social responsibility and consciousness towards the challenges being faced by the country and the rest of the world. Our Country's youth are its greatest asset and we shall continue to nurture this valuable resource in the years to come.

Best wishes and warm regards!
