Feroze Gandhi Institute of Engineering and Technology (FGIET) is an engineering college in Raebareli, Uttar Pradesh, India. It was formally announced on 15 September 2004 in the presence of Sonia Gandhi, chairperson of the United Progressive Alliance, and founding member Mrs Sunita Chauhan, former minister in the Uttar Pradesh government. It is approved by the All India Council for Technical Education and affiliated with Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam Technical University (AKTU).[2]

Admission[edit]

Admission is given on the basis of the rank obtained by the candidate in the SEE-UPTU, the Uttar Pradesh state engineering admission test. This exam is conducted by AKTU. Around 450,000 students take this exam every year, seeking admission to more than 800 engineering and management colleges affiliated with AKTU.

Courses offered[edit]

FGIET offers the following courses:[3]

  • BTech in Computer Science and Engineering (120 seats)
  • BTech in Electronics and Communication Engineering (120 seats)
  • BTech in Aeronautical Engineering (30 seats)
  • BTech in Mechanical Engineering (60 seats)
  • MCA in Master in Computer Application (60 seats)

The BTech courses in CS, EC, ME and AE are four-year (eight-semester) degree courses, whereas the MCA is a three-year (six-semester) degree course.

FGIET is the only institute in AKTU offering a BTech in Aeronautical Engineering.[4]

Integrated aerospace development program[edit]

Engineering institutes in the state have collaborated for the promotion of aviation and aerospace engineering.[5] Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur, through a memorandum of understanding with FGIET, is the mentor of the program.[6][7] The program is run in collaboration with Indira Gandhi Rashtriya Uran Akademi, where the students may opt for industrial training. Rajiv Gandhi National Aviation University is the central government's premier focus for aviation research.

As a part of their curriculum, students must undertake a bachelor project (undergraduate thesis) in their final year. Common destinations for graduates include NTPC Limited, Hindustan Aeronautics Limited, Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited, railway companies, etc.

The aeronautical graduates usually take the pathway to higher education via the Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering to secure admission in the Indian Institutes of Technology or the Indian Institute of Science, mostly due to a lack of opportunities in core aerospace in the region.

Hostels[edit]

The institute has hostel facilities for boys and girls. Each hostel has its own mess, operated by an elected student representative. Each hostel is provided with a water purifier, water cooler and kit for indoor games and outdoor games (basketball court, tennis court and football ground). The name of the boys' hostel is Rajiv Gandhi Boys Hostel (RGBH), and the name of the girls' hostel is Priyadarshini Girls Hostel.
