The institute has constructed its own campus on its own land measuring over 20 Acres within Rayagada Municipal area.  The campus is located on a vast expanse of open land with a range of mountains on its background.  It is completely pollution free. A multi-storey Academic Block with more than 20 class rooms, three large sized computer labs with internet facility, conference hall etc, a two-storey Block containing Physics Lab, Chemistry Lab, Mechanical Workshop, Engineering Drawing hall, Electronics Labs, Administrative Block, Library Block have already been constructed with a total plinth area of 90,000 sft. A huge workshop building is also under construction and will be ready within the academic session 2003-04. A VSAT has been installed atop the college building to provide quick and uninterrupted internet facility to the staff and the students of the College.  The college library has about 10,000 volumes of books with multiple copies of textbooks.  Each student is given four books at a time.

Gardens have been laid out within the campus and within a couple of years the entire campus will be covered with green lawns and plants. 


R&D Activities


As the college is four year old it is too early to undertake research activities.  However, it is in touch with the local government departments and some nearby industries to obtain projects.  The college has sufficient qualified teaching staff including software and hardware engineers to undertake any such project.  The college is also capable of preparing appropriate software for the task.  With this in view the college has opened a Software Development Centre with requisite qualified staff.



The college has been set up with the main object of spreading consciousness of Information Technology and related course in this under developed region.  With that end in view only IT related courses have been opened in the college.  The establishment of this college has provided enough encouragement to the local populace to prepare quite early in their career for admission to these professional and highly technical courses.  Year after year the number of students from the locality has gone up quite considerably.  The college has also been generating enthusiasm for higher studies / debates / seminars in the various branches of study by hosting State level and National level conferences, quiz competitions, mathematics Olympiad etc. The college hosted a national conference on the “Role of Mathematics in Engineering & Technology” on 22-23, February 2003.  The conference was attended by two Vice-Chancellors, one former Vice-Chancellor, Director of NCAOR, Goa and eminent educationist from all parts of the country.  It was a great success.


The college is also arranging similar conferences during the academic session 2003 –04.
