Director Desk

On behalf of BOG of Government Hydro Engineering College Bilaspur, I am honored to convey my greetings and heartily welcome to all students, their parents, faculty and staff members, suppliers and all stake holders who are engaged with this institution. This institution has been setup to cater the need of the industries in particular hydro-power sectors of the country with the active participation in decision making, curriculum design and financial support of National Thermal Power Corporation Ltd. and National Hydro Power Corporation Ltd. Under the dynamic leadership of GoHP, the institution is being setup at Bandla, Bilaspur. Till the construction work is under process, it’s transit camp has been setup at RGGEC, Kangra at NagrotaBagwan. The Government has notified this institute as ‘off-campus of HPTU’ and allowed admissions in Civil and Electrical Engineering with the intake of 60 students in each branch w.e.f. 2017-18. Although the administration is aware about the problems being faced during transition period for a newly developing institute, I am sure that keen interest of management and cooperation from other stakeholders shall overcome every difficulty in achieving the goal of the institution. The feeling of ‘ownership’ by everyone is the essence of our institution. Let us join for the success and growth of the institution.
Jai Hind.
