Director's Message for the students

CGPIT Campus is an elegant - spiritually based campus providing enough enthusiasm to students for their academic upliftment. It indicates the outcome of generosity of NRIs who were inspired to extend the help to the society for the upliftment of their native place ‐ Bardoli and its surroundings. The management is always considering the quality of education with value addition.

The management took a bold decision to establish new state-of-art Engineering Institute in December 2008 and with its rigorous efforts it has taken a big shape with infrastructure facilities. Within six months it was possible to commence the Institute from 2009. Today, staff and students feel proud for getting opportunity and positive environment in CGPIT.

Undoubtedly, it is going to be one of the most upcoming Institutes equally equipped to compete & excel with the contemporaries. It will be one of the leading self-financed Institutes providing UG, PG and even Ph.D courses with testing, consultancy and research facilities within a couple of years.

At present, the institute is offering eight programs leading to B.Tech degree, six PG programs of M.Tech and four Ph.D. programs under Uka Tarsadia University.
