A warm welcome to the CRCE web portal!

Fr. Conceicao Rodrigues College of Engineering (CRCE) works with the vision of ‘Moulding Engineers who can build the nation’, inspired by the dream of our founder Rev. Fr. Conceicao Rodrigues. Established in 1984 with only one course in Production Engineering, the institute presently offers UG, PG and Ph.D. programmes. The institute provides avenues for the holistic development of students with academic competence complemented by all-round growth and social values.

Over the years, CRCE has created a name for itself in engineering education. Regular updation of computational and laboratory set-ups, sponsoring faculty and staff for higher studies and faculty development programmes, provision of well equipped library with, adequate and latest, print and e-resources, additional support to students through mentors, class teachers and professional counselor, use of e-administration, education beyond syllabus through training programmes, co-curricular and extra-curricular activities and industry linkages are some of the best practices we endeavor to follow. An active Institution Innovation Cell (IIC), functioning as per MHRD guidelines, promotes the innovation ecosystem on campus.

Our students have consistently performed well academically, securing ranks at the university level in the final year. The majority of our students get placed on campus, in prestigious companies. Our student teams participate and win commendable positions in highly competitive international/national level engineering competitions like SAE Aero-design, Formula Bharat, ROBOCON, SAE BAJA, Smart India Hackathon, Chhatra Vishwakarma Award, Go Kart Design Challenge, Mega ATV Championship, e-yantra Competition, SUAS – Student Unmanned Aerial Systems, etc.  Technical know-how, leadership capabilities, organization skills and spirit of social service are enhanced through the activities of the Student Council and CRCE student chapters of professional societies which include CSI, IEEE, WIE, IIIE, SAE, SME, Project cell, Codelabs, ACM, Mozilla campus club, Google Developer’s Club, NSS, Rotract, TEDx and E-cell.

Thus, CRCE strives to live up to the visionary principles on which the institution was founded, through continuous improvement, to match the growing expectations of corporates and society, and thus play an effective role in nation-building.
