This remarkable accomplishment stands as a testament to GCET’s unwavering commitment to enhancing infrastructure, establishing state-of-the-art research laboratories, implementing rigorous measures to elevate teaching standards and organizing extensive capacity-building programs for both students and staff.
In addition to the NBA accreditation, GCET Jammu has also received approval from the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE), Government of India, to introduce M Tech programs in the remaining two engineering disciplines, namely Civil Engineering and Electrical Engineering, from the upcoming session of 2023-2024. It is worth mentioning that the college had already introduced M Tech programs in three disciplines viz. E&C Engineering, Computer Engineering and Mechanical Engineering, greatly benefiting students in J&K.
NBA accreditation brings significant benefits to students, as degrees from accredited programs are highly valued by employers in the job market. For those seeking to pursue higher studies, accredited institutions are recognized as preferred choices by many international educational establishments for admissions.
