In the present era of science and technology development of technical & professional manpower has become increasingly necessary. With a view to bring technical education within the reach of students of rural area where there is a scarcity of quality technical education institutes Punjabi University Patiala took a bold initiative of establishing the College of Engineering & Management as a Neighbourhood Campus at Rampura Phul (Phul-Mehraj). A Neighbourhood campus is the functional unit of university which is situated away from the parent body but is within its functional vicinity. Neighbourhood unit functions as a younger unit of the parent body and all its basic needs are met there itself. Establishment of CoEM is based on this philosophy of the Punjabi University.
Punjabi University, Patiala is of the considered opinion that due to lack of financial and basic facilities, rural students are unable to compete with their urban counterparts on academic front as well as overall personality development. Hence their number is always less in competitive examinations especially related with technical and professional field. Many intelligent rural students have to discontinue their studies after passing the Matriculation examination due to lack of proper guidance, resources and opportunities. Now the students of Rampura Phul Sub Division and nearby villeges will not have to go to far off places to receive quality technical and professional education as an apostle of quality technical education, College of Engineering and Management, Punjabi University Neighbourhood campus has been established in their vicinity.
he Engineering programmes at the College of Engineering & Management at Rampura Phul (Phul-Mehraj), Punjabi University Neighbourhood campus are innovative and very well designed to provide high quality technical education keeping in view the fast changing requirements of modern day science and technology.
Technical Education has assumed an irrefutably significant role in the present era of global economic order and rapid technological development. It has become imperative to equip the youth with technical skills and know how to enable them to be successful in the technology driven age. Enumerable opportunities of getting quality technical education are available to the urban youth due to a hub of technical education institutes present in their vicinity. But the rural youth is devoid of such opportunities due to the scarcity of good technical education institutes in rural areas. Keeping in view the aspiration of the rural students of Punjab, Punjabi University, Patiala took a noble initiative and the College of Engineering & Management, Neighbourhood Campus, Punjabi University, Patiala was established at Rampura Phul (Phul-Mehraj) in 2005. Situated amid the pollution free serene ambiance ideal for learning, College of Engineering and Management, Rampura Phul is dedicated to nurture the talent and aspiration of the dynamic and vibrant rural youth by providing them wholesome learning opportunities and student centred approach incorporating both the traditional and the modern ethos. To provide best infrastructural facilities impetus has been given to the campus expansion. The construction of new academic block has been initiated.
The College provides quality education in the frontal areas of Technology and Management. The courses offered include B.Tech in Computer Engineering, Electronics and Communication Engineering; Diploma in Computer Engineering, Electronics and Communication Engineering & Mechanical Engineering; and Master of Computer Application(MCA).
Our Training and Placement Cell organizes various workshops and training programs periodically for the benefit of the students. We endeavour to equip our students with both technical and management skills, so that they achieve placement in reputed corporate and business units and contribute to the industry being excellent professionals.
At CoEM, we emphasize the multifaceted development of the students built around academic and technical excellence. We aims at not only imparting high quality education and training to our students to make them professionally competent technocrats but also to produce socially responsible human beings. Our efforts are directed to accommodate and address the expectations of every student by enabling him/her to be a part of various technical and cultural activities organized in the Institute along with educational tours and industrial project works. Through various activities, attempts are made to hone, transform and tap the latent potential and talent of the students. We provide congenial atmosphere at campus that fosters fruitful relationship between the students and staff. Our faculty provides the best technical guidance to the students. I am sure the contribution made by our well qualified, experienced and dedicated faculty members and teachers will go a long way in supporting and motivating them to reach at pinnacle of success.
I am committed to provide best possible facilities and opportunities to the rural youth by continuous development and expansion of this college. The support of the people of this area, the faculty members and the students is highly solicited for making our college the topmost technical education college of the area.
I wish a bright career and success to my students.
