Puducherry Technological University, formerly Pondicherry Engineering College was established in 1984 by MHRD, Government of India under the Seventh Five Year Plan to meet the requirement of an engineering institution in the Union Territory of Puducherry.  Ever since its inception, the college has maintained a steady academic and research growth both vertically and horizontally with an aim to offer quality technical education and cater to the diverse requirements of the industries besides the expectation of the prevailing societal system. Eight UG and nine PG programmes in core engineering disciplines besides MCA and Ph D programmes in all engineering disciplines and basic sciences are currently offered in the college. As the first engineering college in the Union Territory of Puducherry, it preserves its uniqueness among all professional institutions which were started later. The college enjoys significant autonomy for administration. The college initially affiliated to Pondicherry University, has been granted ‘permanent affiliation’ as the first and significant step towards attainment of academic autonomy and obtained Autonomous status from 2014-15 onwards.  

The major strengths of the institution are its location, well-connected by land and (upcoming) air routes to major cities in India, highly qualified faculty and adequate infrastructure. The college, preserving its brand name, attracts the meritorious students of UT of Puducherry in addition to students from neighboring states. The placement of students through campus is progressive since inception. Considering all these aspects, the strategic plan for institutional development for has been prepared with the following specific vision: “To transform this technical Institute into a Technological University with greater autonomy and evolve the university as educational institution of national importance and global eminence”.


The campus is situated at Pillaichavady, which is about 12 km from the railway station and bus-stand in Pondicherry. It is about 150 km south of Chennai (Madras) on the shores of Bay of Bengal.
