In 2006, first state funded government engineering college was established by Himachal Pradesh government known as Jawaharlal Nehru Government Engineering College (JNGEC). It is located in the heart of Himachal Pradesh i.e in my hometown Sundernagar.

It is affiliated by HPTU and approved by AICTE. It is being funded by World Bank and so we got chances to attend seminars and guest lectures by renowned people in respective areas of work in different departments.

This year JNGEC is going to complete its 10 years. It’s a moment of pride for all the students, teachers, alumni and people associated with it. Hon’ble Chief Minister Sh. Virbhadra Singh has laid the foundation stone of JNGEC in 2006 with the vision to establish a world class institute in Himachal Pradesh.  Currently, we are having four key undergraduate courses in engineering. Those are Textile Engineering, Civil Engineering, Electronics Engineering and Mechanical Engineering.

The students of our college are energetic and hard working. Although, we are new gamer in the field of engineering jobs from Himachal Pradesh but with hard work we are moving ahead step by step.

It’s a very good opportunity given by the government of Himachal Pradesh to its people by opening state funded engineering college. Currently, there are four state funded government engineering colleges in Himachal Pradesh.

I like the location of our college very much. Studying becomes more happening there. At morning when you reach college in summer, cool breeze of fresh air sets everything perfect and with good mood, who doesn’t want to study?

Library offers abundance of books, magazines, newspapers and a quite environment to study. In summer, the place remains cool and in winters I chose to sit on the table where I could get sunlight.

Half of the college is under construction and only some of the buildings are completed. I still remember my first day at college. I was nervous as I had heard that ragging happens in college but in our college, I never witnessed any chance of ragging. We had introduction and friendly talks with seniors and they even helped us.

Our first magazine was published in 2014 in which my some poems were selected. It was after that selection of poems that I discovered my love for writing. Currently, I am working as an editor to our magazine ‘Reflexia’.

Our annual fest ‘Twask’ always remain a time of joy, hard work and utmost enjoyment in whole year. For the past two years, I have participated in street play and dance. This year I am thinking to do something different.

JNGEC has transformed me very much. It was not what I expected but it was surely the one which I needed. It’s perfect the way it has made me to grow and to feel peppy. A lot of memories are collected in my heart and they’ll remain there and put a curve on my face whenever I’ll remember it!
