Engineering Education has indergone many conceptual changes since its establishment as a discipline of serious study, innovation and research after the industrial revolution. In the "Nineteenth" centuries, the emphasis was on innovation and personal ingenuity. The "Twentieth" Century brought in an attitude of scientific analysis involving engineering systems and education became more "WHY" dominated, more science based. Twenty First century, will visualize the infusion of technology into engineering. Today, technological society is synonymous with a tinkering culture, where every individual has basic technical skills. 'JCET' in born out of my desire to return something good to Society since it has given me a lot. I sincerely feel thet the best way to do it would be to launch an Institute which would impart technica and professional education to young students. the Institute is gearing up to face ever changing social-setup and acting proactively, would mean addressing the following issues: Dynamism in curriculum to excite and challenge the intellect of the student community; assessment methodology; institute-industry interaction; Upgrade institute into top-class research academia. I feel the prospects of an Engineer's Educational Training is as profoundly practical as it is profoundaly theoretical, that will embrace Cultivation of Human Qualities and will enable Engineers to meet Menas well as Matter. The future is promising and let us make a joint endeavor to mould the institute enriched with a long tradition and scientific achivevements into a temple of learning, widening the horizons of science and technology in service to the community and society.
