The B.E degree program in Karnataka is among the pre-eminent undergraduate engineering programs in the country.The great engineer statesman, Sr M.Visveswaraiya led the erstwhile Mysore state in creating engineering marvels that are cherished even today. Since then,Karnataka has been innovating and working at the cutting edge of engineering education.

Taking a closer look at engineering, we find that engineering system today are interdisciplinary in their construction and working. David Kearns,the former chief of the Xerox Corporations makes the following statement with respect to narrow specialization in education: “The only education that prepares for change is a general education. In period of change, narrow specialization condemns us to inflexibility- precisely what we do not need. we need the flexible intellectual tools to be problem solvers, to be able to continue learning over time” And that’s what we particularly offer at IMPACT- out student are trained so that they are comfortable with a wide set of ideas, across disciplines; they are encouraged to explore, experiment and build engineering systems.

I welcome you to IMPACT’s engineering program and pray that you enrich yourself over the next four years and become a budding leader in the profession of engineering.
