Punjab Engineering College (Deemed to be University), the first academic institution to come up in the new capital city of Chandigarh in 1953, celebrated the completion of 100 years since its inception in 1921 on 9th November 2021. The commemoration of this milestone was held on 16th November 2021 with the President of India, Shri Ram Nath Kovind as the Chief Guest of the event. The event was graced by the presence of The Governor of Punjab, Shri Banwarilal Purohit, the Governor of Haryana - Shri. Bandaru Dattatreya and Advisor to the UT Administrator - Sh Dharam Pal, who were present as the Guests of Honor. The campus was packed with an aura of zest, verve and the entire college fraternity was brimming with immense pride on this landmark occasion.  

The President, Shri Ram Nath Kovind inaugurated the newly constructed Centenary Hall and the Centenary Gate to mark this milestone day. He also inaugurated the newly set-up state of the art Semiconductor Research Centre (Clean Lab) under the Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering. Additionally, The President, also laid the foundation stone for a student’s hostel to be constructed in the campus premise. This hostel is anticipated to occupy almost 600 students and will be a new addition to the four existing boys hostels and 2 girls hostels.

The President of India, Shri Ram Nath Kovind in his key address congratulated Punjab Engineering College for achieving 100 years since establishment and gave blessings for successful conduction of the centennial celebration. The President unveiled a special postage stamp containing images of PEC's campus in 1921, originally Mughalpura Technical College, and PEC's present campus, thus marking the completion of 100 years of the Institute. In his address speech, he talked about how rare and historical a moment it is, that an institute is completing a century of glorious existence and termed PEC as a 'Centre of Nation Building'. Acknowledging the evolution of PEC, the President also talked about the state of Punjab being a prominent symbol of India’s culture.

He articulated the contributions of PEC and its students for their efforts during the tough times of the COVID pandemic, including the robots made by PEC students. He commended PEC for its huge alumni network and emphasized how PEC’s graduates have touched every field. He suggested the Institute use the mentorship of its alumni and collaborate with Institutes all over the nation to promote unity.

The Governor of Punjab and Administrator U.T., Chandigarh, Shri Banwarilal Purohit in his addressal emphasized the need to permeate the spirit of innovation to all sectors of the socioeconomic spectrum. He celebrated the fact that alumni of PEC have always been drivers of our economy and have been bringing laurels to the nation. He wished PEC all the success and urged the institute to strive to be a world class leader in research and academia.

The Director of Punjab Engineering College, Dr. Baldev Setia, spoke about the rich history of PEC, which found its roots in Mughalpura, Lahore, Pakistan, transitioning to Chandigarh in 1953 and finally becoming an independent institute in 2003. Initiating from the rudimentary stages of the institute springing from offering Civil Engineering courses to becoming one of the leading technical education centers in the region is a profound milestone, reflected in the celebrations which cherished the essence and heritage of the college.

A documentary showcasing the rich history of Punjab Engineering College and a Coffee Table Book was released on the completion of this auspicious occasion. The documentary includes the stories and challenges faced by the past principals and directors who have led the college to great heights through their visionary ideas and the Coffee Table Book imprints the 100 years of history of PEC. It comprises of  the significant history excerpts, anecdotes, biographies, archives, stories of alumni, past directors and more.

The Coffee Table Book also features the photographs of the Foundation Stone of PEC (formerly Mughlapura Engineering College), laid in 1921 at Lahore, Copy of Degrees issues to luminaries like Dr. Satish Dhawan, Speeches of Principal of PEC and Founder director of IITD, Prof. R.N. Dogra and so many other treasured articles.

Having collected the data and photographs in their crude form, we had an amazing team who consolidated the entire collection to a breathing memoir of PEC to give readers a beautiful and lovely experience

The event concluded with the Indian National Anthem. It is a genuine moment of great pride and glory, not only for the students and faculties of the college, but also for the entire region, in honoring PEC as one of the most reputed engineering colleges of India. It stands as a strong reminiscence of the previous notable personalities, and paves the way for future accomplishments, whilst holding significant moments of the history of the nation.
