The classes of JNTU-K Engineering College would start from June 27 at Narasaraopeta. JNTU decided to establish its engineering college at Narasaraopeta and the government sanctioned land for the college. But as the college building construction would take time, the JNTU decided to start the college in private buildings and selected buildings of AM Reddy Engineering College.
The JNTU will start the engineering college with five branches for 300 students and it is searching for buildings to provide hostel facility to the students. The state government gave permission by issuing GO.122 granting permission to establish JNTU engineering college with a budget of Rs.82.20 crore expenditure.
The JNTU engineering college would be established at Kakani near Narasaraopeta. The people's representatives of Guntur district have been requesting the JNTU Engineering College for the past four years and now their efforts became fruitful.
The JNTU team led by Vice-chancellor Prof. V.S.S. Kumar said that the construction of the college building would take a long time, so the classes can be started in private buildings. The team inspected various private buildings and finalised the buildings rooms. Prof. Kumar said that 300 seats are available in CEC, ECE, mechanical, civil and electronics branches of engineering course. He said that the JNTU is searching for hostel accommodation and a team of senior professors led by JNTU-EC principal K.V.S.G. Muralikrishna will visit Narasaraopeta on June 20 to search for hostel facility.
