Enriching Society through Education
RVR & JC College of Engineering was created from the humble wish to provide quality education to students in the form of infrastructure and faculty as well as valuable industry training and industry connect.
Responding to the needs and aspirations of the youth of Andhra Pradesh for higher education, especially professional education in Engineering and Technology, the pioneers of the Nagarjuna Education Society started RVR & JC College of Engineering. This Society was established by a group of philanthropists, medical professionals and industrialists with a primary mission of serving the society through education. The institute was able to be established with the permission of the Government of Andhra Pradesh, it has also gained approval from the AICTE, New Delhi and is affiliated with Acharya Nagarjuna University, Guntur. On a mission to create highly-skilled technocrats, the college strives to provide the best of facilities for the students. As a result, they secured accreditation from National Board of Accreditation (NBA) four times since 1998 and today the Institution is accredited with ‘A’ grade for 5 years by NAAC.
With over 70 PhD holders and 56 PhD scholars, the faculty team of RVR & JC College of Engineering is a dedicated group of intellectuals and has strength of 340 and a student ratio of 1:15. The four fully equipped research labs enable the faculty to be able to carry out projects efficiently. The students are also encouraged to involve themselves in research projects and their innovated ideas are encouraged. The faculty members as well as the students often publish papers in reputed journals and last year alone they published over 100 papers. The college has also signed MoUs with a number of industries and research bodies to provide training for the teachers and students and to get relevant technical practices incorporated into the syllabus. Through MOODLE, the entire courseware and reference materials are available online to students and NPTEL courses and video and web courses are open to students and faculty alike.
RVR & JC College of Engineering is able to attract some of the biggest names in the industry as major recruiters for the students. With names such as TCS, NTT Data and Tech Mahendra, it is not difficult to imagine the thoroughness of the training process the students are put through. With the helpf of an active Placement Cell, the institute organizes a wide spectrum of pre placement programs.
