The institute has a campus that is the site of fresh development in education and research in the state. Here we station disciplines with different levels of maturity and experiment with intellectual adventures through a union of diversity that is people coming from entire state, all in the aim to create a new academic domain.
Under this concept, the institute aims not only to redevelop the existing campus development in the current engineering colleges in the sate areas by improving the conspicuously worn and cramped education and research environments in these locations.
The purpose of this new engineering campus is to facilitate the implementation of an academic plan for the 21st century and to cope with the development and growing sophistication of scholarship. While his octagonal structure reflects he future image of education and research at the engineering campus, it also gives due consideration to social demands to rectify the over concentration of government institutions in the state.
Given the position of the Campus as a pole in the octagonal structure, the development of education and research activities- based on various adventurous academic plans-on the campus marks a concrete step forward for the octagonal campus concept.
Students are provided support of infrastructure such as a good library, laboratories equipped with modern facilities essential for carrying out teaching and research at international standards and more than these a sympathetic understanding of their academic needs by the administration. So that they may be able to work at the frontiers of knowledge by keeping themselves updated with the latest developments in their field.

It is our belief that recreational activities are primordial to the overall development of any student. We have introduced a number of activities and convince everyone that these activities are necessary and have a role to play in the overall growth of the students. We motivate our students to participate in different games and sports activities throughout the year. Teams from Institutions are sent to compete in various Inter-college and University tournaments. These activities inculcate the healthy habits of sportsmanship and competitiveness among the students and help them to release their stress and learn the spirit of freedom, togetherness, discipline, leadership and self-control.
