Gayatri Educational Development Society (GEDS)
Gayatri Educational Development Society (GEDS) was founded by Mr. Mittapalli Venkata Koteswara Rao with an aim of providing world-class technical education in the Palnadu Region of Guntur district, Andhra Pradesh. Mr. Mittapalli Venkata Koteswararao is an eminent philanthropist and industrialist of Guntur District and also the member of the Society for Networking for Excellence in Technical Education (SONET), which runs under the Government of Andhra Pradesh.
With the help of GEDS and its President Mr. M Venkata Koteswara Rao’s funding and stewardship, several colleges have emerged in Palnadu, like Narasaraopeta Engineering College (NEC), Narasaraopeta Institute of Technology, Narasaraopeta Institute of Pharmaceutical Sciences (NIPS), and more. These colleges are helping the students to explore their calibre to the fullest and brighten their future in the field of science and technology.
It gives me immense pleasure addressing the aspirants seeking admissions in Narasaraopeta Engineering College (NEC), and would like to share the core mission of this institution, which is to impart value-based quality education. We, at NEC, strive towards achieving this mission by providing world-class education to our students and preparing them to become the new-age leaders.
Located on 40 acres of land in Palnadu region of Guntur, our college has been walking on the path of growth and development for the last two decades. It has now transformed itself into one of the finest engineering institutes in Andhra Pradesh, which I can assure you is just the tip of the iceberg. We, the entire management of NEC, are taking huge initiatives to ensure the progress of all our students and faculty and the institute.
NEC believes in identifying the need of the hour and raise the benchmark of the education being provided in every discipline we offer. We recognise the rapid pace by which technology is evolving in the 21st Century and are striving to create the innovators and critical thinkers who can help our region and the nation adapt to this pace.
To achieve our mission, we have developed modern infrastructure, laboratories, and smart classrooms, and have gathered some of the most qualified and prominent faculty members and staff to impart quality education in the fields of electrical, mechanical, business administration, humanities & sciences, and others.
Each year we introduce a renewed curriculum based on the changing industry trends and demands. We also induce in our students a sense of social and national commitments so that they can utilise their knowledge and expertise for the benefit of the Society as well.
NEC is set to become the leader among the higher-education institutions established in Andhra Pradesh, and we welcome you to join us in this journey towards excellence and unleash a bright future for yourself.
Sri Mittapalli Venkata Koteswara Rao is the President of Gayatri Educational Development Society (GEDS) and Sri Mittapalli Trust, which helped establish Narasaraopeta Engineering College (NEC), Narasaraopeta Institute of Pharmaceutical Sciences (NIPS), Narasaraopeta Institute of Technology (NIT), Sri Mittapalli College of Engineering (SMCE), and Sri Mittapalli Institute of Technology for Women (SMITW).
Vice Chairman Chakravarthi Mittapalli started his journey as an entrepreneur in 2002 when he established his first venture, an IT Consulting Company named S&C Staffing Inc. However, his true entrepreneurial journey began when he, having studied and worked in India and abroad, decided to return and solve the challenge of the lack of educational facilities in his home town, Narasaraopet.
Mr Chakravarthi Mittapalli received his Bachelor of Engineering (BE) in Computer Science from SRM Engineering College, Chennai, in 1996 and Master of Science (MS) in Computers from a college in Oklahoma, USA, in 1998. After a brief period, he resumed his pursuit of knowledge and joined executive MBA at the Indian School of Business (ISB), Hyderabad.
He pursued professional courses from the world’s top business schools such as Wharton Business School, University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, and Kellogg’s Business School, Northwestern University, Chicago.
Because of his experience, the vice chairman understands the significance of education amid evolving societal challenges. The roots of his ambition to tackle the challenges in Narasaraopet by empowering education can be found in Nelson Mandela’s famous quote – Education is the most powerful weapon you can use to change the world.
Mr Mittapalli believes that in order to realise the dream of NEC competing with the existing leaders in education, it needs to produce engineers of high calibre. He also envisions NEC becoming a centre of excellence in higher technical education with a fleet of highly trained faculty and staff supporting it.
Vice Chairman Chakravarthi Mittapalli also derives his inspiration from the words of the acclaimed educationist, management consultant and author of the book Future Shock, Alvin Toffler, “The illiterate of the 21st Century will not be those who cannot read and write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn and relearn.”
Ms Suhasini Mittapalli always had the zeal and fervour towards education and supporting the success of students. To ensure this success, she is passionately working to provide the best instructional and extracurricular opportunities along with all the possible support. It has always been her first priority to provide each and every student of NEC with a well-rounded education through outstanding instruction from the finest faculty members and staff.
Her quest to provide students with a versatile personality, however, doesn’t stop there; she constantly works to develop character, cultivate passions, and give students an opportunity to explore the world beyond their classrooms.
Suhasini Mittapalli received her Master of Computer Applications degree from Osmania University, Hyderabad, and she has 11 years of work experience in Information Technology in the USA. During her professional journey in the US, she co-founded an IT Consulting firm called S&C Staffing Inc. She moved to India in 2011 along with her family and since then has been part of the NEC Group of Institutions.
Her areas of work are not limited to IT and education; she has a deep interest in social activities also. She has been actively participating in the social and developmental causes, such as creating awareness about waste segregation at homes and communities. She also offers voluntary services at various NGOs.
Her mission is to prepare a new generation of entrepreneurs and innovators who can take Andhra Pradesh and India to new heights on the global stage.
It is an absolute pleasure to welcome all the aspiring young and creative minds to NEC. I firmly believe that technical and management education is the backbone of our nation and also the stepping stone for a country towards its journey to becoming a developed economy.
At NEC, our goal is to provide students with world-class education and transform them into innovators, entrepreneurs, and industry leaders. Through this, we plan to achieve our mission of transforming rural India and its future.
To accomplish this mission, our eco-friendly campus is equipped with state-of-the-art infrastructure.We have well-equipped labs, workshops, libraries, and smart classrooms to help students in attaining the highest standard in academics, research, and professional skills.
We also believe in creating an environment conducive to the all-round development of the students and their evolution into strong and focused professionals. And for this, we have adequate sports infrastructure. We continuously work on developing each and every student’s soft skills and domain skills at our campus.
We give prime importance to empowering our students with sound knowledge, wisdom, experience, and training at the academic level so that they can realise their goals. To help us empower you and allow you to achieve your goals, we have proficient and dedicated faculty teams.Our faculty members also contribute to providing an enjoyable and easy learning experience.
We lay special emphasis on Outcome-Based Education (OBE) and Experiential Learning. In line with the college’s vision and mission, we aim at providing excellent academic ambience and a student-centric teaching process.
For our academic achievements, infrastructure, co-curricular activities and other developments, we have been accredited by the NAAC, an autonomous body of UGC, with an ‘A’ grade. We also have been twice accredited by the NBA, are permanently affiliated to JNTU-Kakinada, and recognised by the UGC under section 2(f) and 12(B) of UGC Act,1956.
We also have won the autonomous status,which helps us in the constant revision of our curriculum to meet the needs of the Industry. This in turn helps our students to gain a competitive edge over others in terms of attitude, aptitude, and knowledge of Industry trends.
I can proudly say that we are equipped with a highly active Training & Placement Cell, which is responsible for imparting the necessary training and plays a crucial role in helping students to kick-start their dream careers.
I believe that success is definite where foresightedness, firm determination, hard work, and discipline exist. I can assure that you will become a confident and successful professional after completing four years at Narasaraopeta Engineering College.
