In the back drop of growing demand for acquiring degree in engineering by the diploma holders, BMS Evening College of Engineering came into existence in the year 1973. The starting of this institution met with many challenges and even the Govt. officials had many doubts regarding the running of a technical course in the evening time. Existing Engineering colleges were reluctant to take up such an adventure. However, BMS Educational Trust which had already established prestigious BMS college of engineering came forward to extend its existing facilities and infrastructure of BMSCE to run the Evening College and obtained the approval of DTE and Bengaluru University. BMSECE is the first aided institution from Karnataka offering undergraduate degrees in engineering program under lateral entry scheme, for working diploma candidates with minimum of 2 years work experience. From the academic year 2001-2002 onwards, the diploma holders are being directly admitted to the second year of Four year BE course. At present the college is affiliated to VTU, Belagavi.
Initially, only three core engineering disciplines viz Civil Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Electrical & Electronics Engineering were started. Later Electronics & Communication Engineering and Computer Science Engineering were added with a total intake of 330 students
Well qualified & experienced faculty and committed staff are eager to provide effective education to students. A well maintained campus provides good academic ambience. In addition to gaining academic knowledge and skills, opportunities are created for the students to groom and develop further.
Many of our students have continued their studies further and obtained Masters and Doctoral degree after passing out from this institution. Some of them have reached the highest positions such as directors, general managers and managers in private and public sectors. BMSECE continues to cater to the needs of many diploma professionals to bring their dreams to reality.
