A Change On its Way


Engineering in Odisha – in real sense came into existence with the establishment of “Burla Engineering College” i.e  “University College of Engineering”(UCE). Past 58 years of excellence has brought this University a unique face and name to mark a milestone in Odisha’s Engineering history….

Today it stands as VSSUT – Veer Surendra Sai University of Technology. Since 1956, as an engineering college and since 2009 as a Technical university, it has already left its foot prints in the Indian technical life line. Chief Secretary(Govt. of Odisha) officially recommended VSSUT for IIEST Status to HRD Ministry, Govt. of India.
(source OdishaTV News) The State government has urged the Centre to upgrade Veer Surendra Sai University of Technology (VSSUT), Burla, as an Indian Institute of Engineering, Science and Technology (IIEST) through an Act in the Parliament.

In a letter to the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) secretary Satyanarayan Mohanty, the State’s chief secretary G.C. Pati has sought development of the VSSUT while requesting for a national tag to the Burla-based university on the basis of recommendations from Anand Krishnan Committee formed in 2007.

The VSSUT was given unitary university status in 2009 and has 11 degree courses, 18 MTech, three MSc and two integrated MSc, three MPhil, one MCA and 12 PhD programmes. Earlier the VSSUT was a technical institute, which was founded in 1956.

Hope to achieve the IIEST Dream for our alma-mater during the Diamond Jubilee Year 2015-2016.
