The Gaya College of Engineering (GCE) is located in, as the name suggests, the city of Gaya in Bihar. Gaya, has long been associated with Buddhist pilgrimage sites, so still remains a key tourism hub. The city’s history goes back to well over two- thousand years back in to ancient periods. The GCE though is relatively new, having only been founded in the year 2008. It is affiliated to the Aryabhatta Knowledge University (AKU), based in the state capital of Patna. The university is named after the legendary mathematician from Ancient India. This affiliation to the AKU, ensures the approval of the UGC (University Grants Commission).
While formally, the present avatar of the GCE opened in 2008, an earlier version existed at the same site known as the Magadh Engineering College (MEC). This was started back in 1980, and stayed in existence till 1994, before being closed. 2008 saw the reopening in this new avatar. The technical courses are recognized by the AICTE (All India Council for Technical Education). The GCE has also been accredited by both the NBA (National Board of Accreditation). The total campus of the Gaya College of Engineering spans an impressive eighty- seven acres of land. Due to the semi- rural setting, the campus is lush green, and relatively free from pollution.
The Gaya College of Engineering has a single- minded focus towards academics. Here, only engineering programmes are offered, that too at only the undergrad level. These B. Tech programmes are available for the engineering areas of- Civil, Mechanical, Computer Science and for Electrical & Electronics. Admissions to these programmes is via the BCECE (Bihar Combined Entrance Competitive Examination). The entire academics at the GCE is run by a cohort of five academic departments, each with expertise in its own area. Four of these five departments are for the areas in which the UG degrees may be pursued in here. The fifth one is the Department of Science and Humanities.
This deals with the English language courses and the fundamental sciences of physics, chemistry and mathematics. The college is also a key facilitator of a Ministry of HRD initiative with the World Bank. It is a programme titled TEQIP (Technical Education Quality Improvement Programme). Research too plays a very important role, here at the Gaya College of Engineering. To facilitate that, there is a Central Library on campus. It is air- conditioned. A computer Centre too is attached to it, so that students can avail the vast resources provided by the internet. Numerous national level academic journals and informative magazines are available on display at this library, besides the obvious course books.
The campus has much to offer. There are hostel facilities for both boys and girls. Banking facilities with ATM are available in the campus’s vicinity. There is a sports field where cricket and football may be played. Facilities are also there for indoor sports. The gymnasium may also be used by all. A small auditorium is there to facilitate some central events. The campus is Wi- Fi enabled. Science laboratories have the latest of equipment. A health centre is also there to cater to medical emergencies. Hygienic food is prepared at the college cafeteria. The college even has its own transport to ferry students to and from the campus.
There is also a modest guest house for external visitors to be put up at. This plays a key role during the campus placement rounds, as several of the recruiters need to visit from some other big cities. The GCE puts in a lot of effort towards perfection of its academic modules. For that reason, the college has developed its Program Educational Objectives (PEOs) which aim to develop the perfect academic delivery pedagogy. Constant revisions are made to the curriculum depending on the industry needs. All this research focus has helped boost up the college’s rankings. The Careers 360 magazine has placed the Gaya College of Engineering within the AAA category among the engineering colleges. The GCE has also done remarkably well, when it comes to the placement records now.
Some of the key recruiters to have visited over the recent seasons include the likes of- Tata Steel, Prism Cement, Chegg, Cactus, Face Prep, Dalmia Bharat Cement, Tres Vista and Cloud Engineers. Top PSUs (Public Sector Undertakings) have also provided industrial training facility to the students. This includes the NTPC (National Thermal Power Corporation) and the PGCIL (Power Grid Corporation of India Limited). As part of an agreement, students from the GCE have also been trained specifically by the facilitators from the IIT (Indian Institute of Technology) in Kharagpur (West Bengal) on Android app development. Some students from this college, have also been selected to a highly prestigious fellowship programme. It is known as the Focus Areas Science Technology- Summer Fellowship (FAST- SF) provided by a cohort of the top technology training institutions in the country.
Careers360 shortlists over 5000 colleges across domains each year. Out of these colleges, only those colleges are rated/ranked which provide transparent data requested by Careers360.
