Bharatiya Vidya Bhavanâ€™s Sardar Patel College of Engineering (SPCE) was established in 1962 as a Government Aided Engineering College. It was started with three conventional courses. viz., Civil, Electrical and Mechanical with an intake of 40 in each branch which was subsequently increased to 60. The institute is permanently affiliated to University of Mumbai.
SPCE was the only institute offering four year Part Time (Evening) Degree Courses in Civil, Electrical and Mechanical branches to encourage serving diploma engineers to improve their qualifications and update their knowledge. The next stage in development aimed at raising the level of the institute to Post Graduate by starting Post Graduate Course in Civil and Mechanical. The institute introduced first P. G. course namely M.E. (Civil) with Structural Engineering Subjects in the year 1988 with the aid from Ministry of Human Resources Development (MHRD), Government of India. Subsequently Post Graduate Program in Mechanical Engineering disciplines was also introduced.
Over the last 50 years the college has gained an excellent reputation in the field of Technical Education. S.P.C.E. Grade â€œAâ€ rating engineering college from Govt. of Maharashtra has maintained a proud tradition of excellent academic records by securing high ranks, gold medals and other awards in the University Exams. The college has produced many graduates and Post-graduate Engineers, many of our past students are now leaders in their professions. S.P.C.E. Alumni can be found in all public and private sector organizations operating in diverse fields, often holding senior and key positions in the organization.
The institute is a recognized PhD and QIP center. It has become autonomous since 2010 and is one of the TEQIP- II institutes.
