Vyavasayi Vidya Pratishthan is established by Rajkot Nagarik Sahakari Bank Ltd. to promote quality education in various technical fields. The trust was founded in 1996 with the, being objective of meeting technical educational needs of Gujarat.
The trust prides itself of establishing the first engineering college in Rajkot, the central location of Saurashtra and Kutch region. V.V.P. Engineering College is a self-financed institution affiliated to Saurashtra University and Gujarat Technological University, recognized by All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE), New Delhi and the Government of Gujarat.
It has a specially designed on 30 acres of land with spacious building providing an adequate infra-structural facility setup in a beautiful natural surroundings. It is landscaped with enlivened architecture that creates conducive environment of learning. The campus is located 10 Km on Kalawad Road, the west of Rajkot, with transportation and conveyance facilities.
Good economy of a country leads to better future and it relies largely on total productivity, which is highly dependent on mechanical engineers. Mechanical Engineering of V. V. P. has 120 seats in addition to 18 seats of master degree course in Computer Aided Design & Computer Aided Manufacturing.
Professors of Mechanical in V. V. P. hold Ph. D. and master degree from reputed universities across the nation with one Ph. D. completed and 7 pursuing Ph. D. Most of the professors hold Master degree.
Mechanical department of V. V. P. is equipped with modern laboratories and equipments such as Computer Aided Design & Computer Aided Manufacturing laboratory, automobile engineering laboratory, workshop, refrigeration & air-condition laboratory, thermal engineering laboratory, hydraulics and fluid mechanics laboratory etc.. Mechanical department is well equipped with CNC, electro discharge machine, single cylinder four stroke diesel engine, four cylinder four stroke petrol engine, compressor, pump, turbine, vibration apparatus, window air conditioning test rig etc.
V. V. P. does not offer only best education but also great placement. Placement means high paid jobs during engineering studies. The placement of Mechanical has always been greater than 50 % and great in the period of recession also. V. V. P. was the first institute in Gujarat and probably in India to achieve 100 % placement in 2008. V. V. P. is successful in placing to students to numerous national and multi-national industries like Reliance, Mahindra & Mahindra, Infosys, Nirma, Essar, Adani, L & T, Ambuja Cement, Amul, Tata Chemicals etc. with a maximum yearly package of Rs. 4,50,000/-.
The most modernized Mechanical Engineering is Robotics Engineering. V. V. P. is probably the first engineering institute in Gujarat having Robotics arm. Robotics arm is equipped with simulation software. With a total cost of Rs. 6,70,000/-, robotics arm consists of pneumatic gear, flexible system and computer integrated manufacturing. You are all invited to visit Mechanical Engineering Department because seeing is believing.
