With the completion of 100 years, since its inception in 1921, Punjab Engineering College hosted its 100th Foundation Day on 9th November 2021.Over an immaculate journey spanning 100 years, the college has become a highly recognized center of higher learning, nurturing young minds into outstanding graduates and postgraduates. The event received much fanfare with the arrival of the chief guests for this auspicious day - UT Advisor to the administrator - Sh Dharam Pal, Chairman of Board of Governors - Sh Rajendra Gupta, the Technical Education Secretary -  Sh S.S. Gill were the guests of honor for the ceremony. The Director, Dr. Baldev Setia welcomed the esteemed guests with a bouquet of flowers in the senate hall of the institute. The event was hosted following strict covid 19 protocols.

The event was attended by the faculty, staff and student representatives,  enthusiastic about this remarkable milestone. The dignitaries present spoke about PEC and its role in shaping technical education throughout history.  UT Advisor Dharam Pal mentioned the strong influence of PEC alumni serving in highly acclaimed positions across the world and drew examples from Kalpana Chawla, Professor Satish Dhawan and Vandi Verma just to name a few. He reminiscended his time at the institute and emphasized how honoured he was to be part of this historic moment and be part of this institute. The Director of PEC, Dr Baldev Setia focused on the rich history and immense heritage value of the institute. He stated this event was the kickstarter to a plethora of events lined up for the year beginning with the Centenary year celebrations on November 16th where the President of India, Sri Ram Nath Kovind will honor the occasion. He also expressed his gratitude to be the director of PEC during this noteworthy period of the institute and spoke about his vision for the future of the college.  Followed by this, Chairman of the Board of Directors, Sh. Rajendra Gupta spoke about the importance of PEC in the northern part of the country, consistently raising the bar of technical education and research in the region. He spoke highly about PEC and its attributions that benefited the country.  Finally, Technical Education Secretary, S.S Gill appreciated PEC's contribution towards Chandigarh in terms of research and technology especially during Covid 19, which had a huge positive impact on the population. To celebrate this remarkable benchmark, a cake cutting ceremony was organized followed by the hoisting of a celebratory balloon by the chief guests. The ceremony was a grand success and it set the stage for more such events to come.
