17th December 1981 saw the dawn of Shri Guru Gobind
Singhji Institute of Engineering and Technology, at Nanded. Approved
by the All India council for Technical Education, Government of
India, it was registered under the Society's Act, 1960 and was 100%
funded by Government of Maharashtra. Sant Shri Baba Harnamji trust donated a land of 46 Acres for giving
the name to this institution which is named after 10th Sikh Guru, Shri
Guru Gobind Singhji.
It was steered by the Governing Board, with the Director of Technical
Education at its helm. Prof. B.M. Naik took over as first
full-time Principal in 1983. Since then the institute has grown
leaps and bounds.
In 2004, the institute on the basis of a survey (conducted by a
committee headed by Dr. F. C. Kohli, Chairman TCS) published in
Business India (TOI), identified as an institute (one amongst three)
with potential for excellence. The Government of Maharashtra took
the initiative of granting autonomous status to select engineering
colleges in the State under its TEQIP program. The SGGS Institute of
Engineering and technology has the privilege of being one of the
selected few to be offered total autonomy- academic, financial and
administrative. In the Eligibility Criterion of NPIU, Institute
secured 59 Marks out of 63 and is selected under TEQIP for assistance
and provided stiff competition to other institutes.
Mr. B.N. Kalyani, an eminent industrialist, heading the Kalyani Group
of Companies, has been nominated by the Government of Maharashtra as
Chairman of the Governing Board. The Government has also appointed
renowned personalities form business and industry, academics and its
senior administrative cadre on the Governing Board. The Institute will
continue to receive block grants from the Government of Maharashtra,
from time to time. The SGGS Institute of Engineering and Technology
enjoys a sprawling campus of over 46 acres, donated by Sant Baba
Harnam Singh Langer sahib Gurudwara trust and is affiliated to Swami
Ramanand Teerth Marathwada University, Nanded.
