The college of Technology was established in 1966 as a constituent college of the University. Initially the College offered B.Tech. Degree programmes in four disciplines of engineering - Agricultural, Civil, Electrical and Mechanical. Subsequently in 1984 three more disciplines - Computer Engineering, Electronics and Communication Engineering, and Production Engineering- came into existence to cope up with the upcoming technological requirement. In between, postgraduate programmes in various specializations were introduced. At present the college runs AICTE approved eight Bachelor degree and Twenty-two post-graduate degree programmes.
In 1984 itself, on the recommendation of Indian Council of Agricultural Research, the Department of Agricultural Engineering was reconstituted into four departments of Post Harvest Process and Food Engineering, Irrigation and Drainage Engineering, Farm Machinery and Power Engineering and Soil and Water Conservation Engineering. These departments offer specialized P.G. programmes independently and are jointly responsible for running the B.Tech. Programme. Department of Information Technology came into existence in 2010. Therefore, the College at present has 11 departments functioning independently under the administrative control of Dean, College of Technology. Apart from Uttarakhand State Higher Education Department, the college receives financial grants from various Central Agencies, like All India Council of Technical Education (AICTE), University Grants Commission (UGC), Department of Science and Technology (DST), Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR) and the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR).
The College of Technology has ten fully functional departments that offer eight B. Tech Degree Programs namely Agricultural Engineering, Civil Engineering, Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Electronics & Communication, Information Technology, Mechanical Engineering and Industrial & Production Engineering. In addition to it, the departments offer 24 post graduate programs including a self financed MCA program Each department has well qualified and experienced faculty as well as state-of-the-art laboratories for imparting excellent theoretical and practical knowledge. Given below is a list of the ten departmemts. Click on the name of the department to go to its home page.
