The wait is over !! UVCE Act-2021 has been signed by the Governor of Karnataka on 21st February and published in the Gazette Notification on 28th February (TODAY!).
This Act declares and constitutes University Visvesvaraya College of Engineering as University of Visvesvaraya College of Engineering to grant autonomy with a view to empower the Institution to attain standards of global excellence in engineering and allied areas of knowledge. This Bill proposes to model UVCE on the lines of Indian Institutes of Technology, Indian Institutes of Management and other Institutions of National Importance.
We had published a video (20-min) which explains the Highlights of UVCE Act-2021; Key Recommendations from the Committee; Concerns; Current Stats and Next Plans from UVCEGA. You can watch it here (also the video when it was passed in the Assembly):
As mentioned previously, from UVCE Graduates Association, we have decided to setup THREE Committees:
- Research and Innovation Committee
- Industry and Collaboration Committee
- Fund Raising & Branding Committee
The main idea is that these Committees will need to come up with an Action Plan with atleast 5 Short Term and 5 Long Term Suggestions for UVCEGA and alumni community. The members of these Committees have already met online and discussed few points. We will be publishing them in the coming days once finalized. If you are not a member of UVCE Graduates Association yet, we request you to register now and be part of the proud UVCE alumni fraternity and help strengthen the community! Also, please spread the word among your other UVCE friends and batchmates.
If you would like to share some inputs, please fill the form below and we will share it with the Committee members:
