Strong Research, Potent Innovation

About Institute

Pravara Rural Engineering College (PREC) commenced in 1983 with only 165 students in 3 branches. Moving from strength to strength, we are now an ISO 9001:2008 institute with 1911 students across 8 Undergraduate, 6 Postgraduate, and 1 PhD divisions. And, we have nurtured 100+ University rankers.

PREC is particularly potent on research and innovation. Of the 119, 16 of our faculty hold PhDs with 44 having registered for the same. Students are not far behind – 2 have filed for patents and 4 are in the process of completing PhDs. Over the last 5 years, companies have hired 597 students including the 24 in 2018-19.

So what enables such splendid performance? For one, the fantastic infrastructure – 88 laboratories, a library with 52,000 books, and 3 hostels of total 800 capacity. Then, there is our sterling and inclusive work culture.

Highlighting our commitment to social responsibility is the “Earn & Learn” Scheme and the “Book Bank” Scheme for economically weaker students. Rain water harvesting, solar power plant, and biogas plant from kitchen waste underline our focus on environmental conservation. As complete as it gets!
