Distinguished Dean of Academics, Academic Heads, Academic, Administrative, Accounts & Project Officers and my faculty colleagues, my young friends “you”, it is a moment of great honour and privilege for me to extend a very hearty welcome to all of you to Ch. Brahm Prakash Government Engineering College (CBPGEC). Team CBPGEC welcomes you to this college and assure you that we shall leave no stone unturned to promote your career and shall equip you with best possible training and exposure.
This college, as you are aware has been established by Govt. of N.C.T of Delhi in 2007, with two B.Tech programs in Civil Engineering and Information Technology. In 2008, another B.Tech program in Environment Engineering was also added.
On a retrospective analysis of the development of multifarious activities in this college since its inception, it is heartening to note that over a period of about five years, we have been able to impart quality Education despite serious limitations of adequate number of available faculty members. The progress of an educational institution rests on committed faculty members and staff, supportive administration, quality infrastructure, large pool of learning resources and responsive students. The Team CBPGEC is making persistent efforts to effectively address each and every aspect of this dimension. In the process of evolving this institute, the Team CBPGEC has a strong commitment towards creation and upgradation of academic infrastructure; an unrelenting endeavour to provide an environment that promotes creativity and out of the box thinking. The college has several challenges, and I need your cooperation to overcome these through our commitment.
In this college we believe in learning by capturing set of experiences and enabling one to explore new realms of wisdom. For us an educational institute is not just about bricks, mortar and concrete, but about building character, inspiring minds and about enriching experiences that lasts a lifetime. We will strive for providing an enabling culture, to the students to learn and grow fearlessly and aim for perfection. Further, in this college we attempt to inculcate values of personal excellence and concern for others.
India having its firm faith in truth, non violence, we would like you to assume responsibility and to understand the value and worth of self discipline, professional morality and work ethics. Let us not forget that the founding father of free and independent India, Mahatma Gandhi ji, and our freedom fighters worked for creation of such an India. It is, therefore, our responsibility to ensure that you understand your responsibility to work consciously for creation of India inhabited by peace loving people, capable people and cultured people.
We shall endeavour to convert this college into a centre of excellence by providing relevant technical education and nurturing innovative ideas of young vibrant minds. Let you and your mentors together march on the path of enlightenment, acquire both knowledge as well as capabilities to greet the challenges of the new knowledge Age.
We at CBPGEC believe that education is not about merely imparting knowledge but more about opening students’ mind and self expression. I would like to tell you that this is highly competitive world and in this world only those can survive who excel in whatever they do. Always aim at excellence. Further, Meeting deadlines are not good enough. Beating deadlines is what is required.
This institute is evolving with time by experimenting new ideas and promoting innovation and excellence. From this year the College has taken a new step of awarding certificates and cash prizes for meritorious students, in addition to the existing set of scholarships. These awards are in the
(a) Best Performance Award for outgoing student(s)
(b)High Achievers Award based on semester result(s)
(c)High Merit Award based on performance of previous academic year
(d)Merit Award based on performance of previous academic year
I am sure this small step initiated in this college will encourage positive and healthy competition amongst you and will improve the quality of education and learning. Further, this will also result in better performance in competitive examinations leading to better placement. As in case of all such good endeavors, there are certain conditions generally written in small font, but none the less they are no less important. In this case the award is given only to
- Those students, who have passed all the papers (having no back paper) given in the scheme and syllabus of the GGSIP University in all preceding semesters based on the results declared by GGSIPU.

Further, the detailed explanation in this regard will be made at 4.00 P.M. on 8th, 9th and 10th October, 2012 in the Conference Hall which all of you are required to attend as per schedule to be displayed by Dean (Academic). During this presentation other aspects of GGSIPU will also be discussed particularly with reference to earning credits during Eight semesters B.Tech Programme, Attendance requirement and detention rules and requirement of Internal assessment for Theory and Practicals.
In addition to vigorous academic activities, your college is also focusing on the overall personality development of the students. Adequate provisions for extracurricular activities including games and sports have been made and Team CBPGEC with your well conceived proposals in these areas is willing to take it to higher pedestal.

The Team CBPGEC shall always be proactively engaged to support you in your resolve to bring glory to this college, to your parents and to yourself. I would like to convey some mantras for all of you present here
- Knowledge is the necessary condition to succeed.
- Success is not just a matter of luck, If you work with determination and with perfection’ success will follow.
- Do not accept defeat. Challenge negative forces. The past will give in. You will certainly succeed. Never give up.
- Chose a job you love and you will never have to work a day in your life.
Last but not the least, you are advised to always work to protect and enhance the fair name of CBPGEC as it will be your identity for life. You would be able to do so by your good deeds and will fail to do so if you engage in misdeeds and misconduct. I advise you to be ultra vigilant and protect your own and your Alma matter’s interest.
