Aim: "To Promote Coordinate and Implement Research and Development Programs."

The concept of a global village could not have been defined in the world at a better time than today. With fast paced developments taking place in various fields around the world, it has made the world a smaller place. The emergence of India on the world map in recent years as a country that cannot be ignored has made the task at hand more compelling than ever before.

We at Bharati Vidyapeeth Deemed University College of Engineering have always worked toward furthering our philosophy of value-based education through our motto Social Transformation through Dynamic Education

Ever since its establishment, the BVUCOE conglomerate of students, staff and faculty have endeavored towards creating young and dynamic engineers who will form the crux of the technical workforce of tomorrow. In our quest to provide the country with the best working talent, we have created a disciplined environment that at the same time provides each individual with the creative freedom to think out of the box., It has always been our belief that every student has an unending pool of talent that needs to be nurtured and which when guided with proper care and the correct attitude can help bring out the best from any individual.

I am convinced that every student passing out of our College will leave their undefiled mark of success in whichever sphere of life they choose to work and I hope that their hunger to do well for the benefit of the human race only increases with their success in life.
