Dr. Himanshu Soni
- Principal, GCET

Imparting technical knowledge with value added development for the youth of Gujarat and India, the Charutar Vidyamandal has taken initiatives to start first self-finance institute in Gujarat and it's vision has taken shape of G H Patel college of Engineering & Technology (GCET) in year 1996.

GCET is running eight undergraduate programs and seven post graduate programs. We are the pioneer in India to start undergraduate program in Information & Technology (IT) and Mechatronics Engineering (MC). The primary focus of our institute is to provide teaching and learning at par with higher seats of learning institutes like IITs. Our endeavor is to create an institute that will provide a space for free and uninhibited thinking, a space where faculty and students can experiment with novel ideas.

We have highly learned faculty members in GCET. Almost more than 30% faculty members have IIT/NIT exposure at masters/PhD level. Our faculty members have extensive education experience. GCET students have also created many milestones in their academic carrier. Under Sardar Patel University we have total 57 gold medalist students from various under graduate disciplines. While with the Gujarat Technological University, our students are continuously achieving top ranks in top 100 students as a result of this GCET always stood in top 10 institutes of GUJARAT. From academic year 2020-21 the GCET is one of the constituent colleges under CVM University.

Our management believes that apart from imparting education, we should look towards the overall development of the students so that they are capable of taking the global challenges. We carry out various students' activities like- Cultural Programs, Sports Activity, Project Club, Organizing Technical Events etc. GCET gives equal importance to these activities.

But we are not content with what we have achieved, neither had we wanted to sit on our past laurels, but we want to attain even greater heights in the field of Technical Education. This is possible only by constructive support from my dear student friends, staff members and all our stakeholder.

I congratulate and heartily welcome to all the students, who are getting the admission to GCET. I am sure that your stay of four years in GCET will be meaningful and lead you to be a successful engineer and a good citizen of India.

Have a happy and joyous learning!
