Education is said to be the transmission of knowledge, culture and civilization. Since more than seven decades of its establishment by visionaries Shri Bhaikaka and Shri Bhikhabhai Saheb and inspiration by shri Sardar Vallabhbhai patel, Vallabh Vidyanagar of today seems like fulfilment of Tagor's vision of new India: "The inner spirit of India is calling us to establish, in this land, great centre, where all her intellectual forces will gather for the purpose of creation, and all her resources of knowledge and thought, Eastern and Western, will unite in perfect harmony."

In the eighteenth year of the new millennium, we at Vallabh Vidyanagar, are poised on the brink of revolution. In this world, which moves at the speed of thought, our guiding principles used to change constantly, innovation and up gradation, both in terms of technology for our students and instil in them such high standards of knowledge and discipline that they can face any challenges anywhere in the world. Today, when aspirations are moving sky high and students are constantly challenged by a competitive and dynamic world, we strive to include confidence and competence in our students and equip them to face the challenges for years to come.

I take the opportunity to introduce "G H Patel College of Engineering & Technology".Earlier the institute was affiliated with Sardar Patel University, later to Gujarat Technological University from 2008 to 2020. From academic year 2020-21 the GCET is one of the constituent colleges under CVM University and intends to make everything possible to extend helping hand for the students to get geared-up for the global spectrum in the 21st century, rightly called to be the century of knowledge.
