UVCE's 100th year marked with inauguration of restoration work

The restoration work of University Visvesvaraya College of Engineering (UVCE) was inaugurated on Wednesday by the chief minister.

The work  marks the 100th year of the engineering college established by eminent engineer Sir M Visvesvaraya.

Addressing the students, Siddaramaiah urged them to strive to achieve the same heights which their college's founder did.

Prof K R Venugopal, Principal, UVCE said that the Rs 25 crore granted by the government in its centenary year will be used to restore heritage buildings on the campus. Work will also  begin on a new block for the mechanical department. "The plan is being developed by the state department of architecture. We will need another Rs 100 crore to complete the plan," he said.

Venugopal said that more teachers should be appointed as there is a shortage and the college should be developed to become a deemed university.
