Faculty

PEC  faculty  are  highly distinguished individuals.  Most of the faculty members have had the opportunity to earn degree from highly rated institutions across the country. For the faculty , teaching is more of a passion than profession. They not only create well-educated students, but make them also acquire awareness about the changing world scenario in the field of Engineering & Technology . The faculty members of PEC have constantly been in headlines for their noteworthy achievements and contributions in research. Most of them have industrial experience which has proved to be a great benefit for our students. They are dedicated to the noble task of imparting state of the art knowledge to the young budding minds.

Unremitting innovation is the key to learning which is absolute in its nature. Our faculty, through their astute business acumen gathered through years of erudition, engages in projects ranging from social entrepreneurship to industry inclinations. Following is a list of some of the Projects in progress of our faculty’s engagements.
