Established in the year 1917 by Bharat Ratna Sir M Visvesvaraya, University Visvesvaraya College of Engineering (UVCE) is an AICTE approved establishment imparting education in B.E/B.Tech, M.E/M.Tech, B.Arch, M.Sc (Engineering) and PhD degrees in the various disciplines of Engineering and Architecture. After celebrating its centenary year in 2018, this college has marked its name amongst one of the most prestigious institutions in the country and it is designated as an autonomous college from 25th march, 2022. The college hosts several successful technical and non–technical events with diligent efforts from the students. Every year, the college boasts of quality placements while taking pride in its alumni's successful ventures. In a way, UVCE not only shapes the careers of its students but also makes them fit to face the real-world challenges that are posed in the society
IEEE UVCE has come to be one of the most recognised Student Branch across the Region 10 of IEEE. Rekindled in 2001, the student branch has since grown to the strength of around 400 student members. The organization's commitment to improving and upgrading its members' core knowledge base to industry standards is reflected in a variety of activities organised throughout the year. Symposiums, guest lectures, hands-on workshops, the Annual National Level Technical Student Conference - KAGADA, the Annual National Level Technical Extravaganza - IMPETUS, Annual National Level Hackathon - CodeFury and industrial tours are some of the events held throughout the year. We stood with our motto “Striding Ahead” even during the pandemic, engaging the community not only with technical skills but also in humanitarian and societal causes. Our diligent efforts haven’t been left unrecognized. In January 2022, IEEE UVCE received a Token of Appreciation for support and encouragement towards IEEE activities and the Outstanding Large Student Branch Award by IEEE Bangalore Section.
KAGADA is our Annual National Level Technical Student Conference which has the tracks Paper and Poster Presentation along with Project Exhibitions. We, at IEEE UVCE, fervently believe that the cause of furthering technical knowledge cannot be achieved in the classroom alone. KAGADA, which was awarded the Darrel Chong Platinum Level Student Activity Award in 2019, aims to break the barriers, limitations and image of being a student by encouraging the contestants to pursue research at the Undergraduate level. KAGADA provides a conducive platform for vivacious students to sharpen their technical intellect, presentation skills and exchange ideas and learn from one another and ultimately become better engineers in the process. Ottige Kaliyona, an initiative where we teach government school students how to utilize technology and improve social skills and Food for Cause, a project that resembles a food stall and donates the proceeds from sales there to an orphanage, are both carried out as a part of KAGADA. Paper presentations will be held online this year in order to encourage greater participation from various colleges and to give them the finest platform for expressing their views.
