Design Engineer, an innovative concept implemented at GTU which covers multiple engineering disciplines. The uniting model is a focus on applying the ‘engineering design process, in which engineers develop new products or processes with a primary emphasis on functional utility. Design engineering is an initiative taken by Gujarat Technology University in this direction with the help and guidance of the professors of IITs and the GTU Innovation Council we are looking ahead in moving on the path of innovation.
VVP Engineering College, Rajkot organized an Orientation program for all its faculties for the newly introduced subject Design Engineering (DE), ‘ Concept of Design Engineering ‘ on 12 Nov 2014 at EC auditorium. Prof. Dr. Sachin Parikh, Principal of V.V.P. Engineering College and Dean of GTU Zone 4 gave a deep insight of the GTU policies regarding Design Engg. and its importance in the field of Engineering.
