Eminent Leadership

Mr. L. Naveen Prasad, Vice Chairman of New Prince Shri Bhavani College of Engineering and Technology, completed his education in business administration and his M.S. in Loughborough University, Leicestershire, UK. He has emerged as an accomplished educationist with his astounding contribution to the expansion of the college by pioneering in the establishment of various centres of excellence.

Under his active guidance, the institution has signed MoUs with various industries, thereby establishing centres that enable students to learn industry-ready curriculum and advanced courses. This helps every student to become employable right after their graduation.

All faculties of the institute have published research articles in international journals and backed up by patents with their names.

The institution undertakes uplifting the surrounding villages in association with MHRD, Government of India under the Unnat Bharat Abhiyan scheme, and various other schemes of the central government are actively implemented. 

Working Under the Shadow of Pandemic

The COVID-19 pandemic compelled the global and abrupt conversion of conventional face-to-face instruction to the online format in all educational institutes. The five pillars of high-quality online education are learning effectiveness, student satisfaction, faculty satisfaction, access, scale, and cost.

The institute is effectively working towards achieving optimum implementation of these pillars. The conventional pen and paper exams have given way to MCQs, group discussions, online assignments, one to one oral exams, etc.

Turning the Page

Going forward, the institute intends to focus on work-based learning, multidisciplinary programs and a dual emphasis on engineering design and self-reflection, to the extent permitted by the affiliating university. It is also focused on achieving autonomous status, which would help to design socially relevant and outward facing engineering curriculum.
