During the 12th ASSOCHAM National Educational Summit, the region's most preferred Engineering Institute received the South Award. It is ranked 31st in the country and 13th in the state. The institute is affiliated with Anna University in Chennai and was granted autonomy in 2016. The college offers 15 undergraduate programmes as well as six postgraduate programmes. College is recognized under Sections 2(f) and 12(B) of the UGC Act of 1956. It extended further with 5 programs accredited by NBA.

To make the most of the Autonomous status, the college revises the curriculum of all programmes based on current industry needs and introduces revolutions. It is the first higher education institution to offer IBM-integrated courses to ensure that students gain industry-required knowledge and understand professionalism. We have always strived to be unique by using a variety of methods to provide our students with all necessary skills and capabilities, allowing them to learn the most up-to-date information through newer technology.

Peer Group Committee Meeting


     The institute has launched a new peer group committee meeting for its students. These meetings take place on all weekends (Saturday) to ensure that HICET students have an excellent academic learning environment. The student members count 6-10 of all categories such as average, weak, and good in academic, hostel, day-scholars, other states along with Dean-academics, class advisor and all subject handling faculty members of the current semester are the members of the group. The attendees provide detailed feedback so that everyone receives individual attention. The diverse categories of group members allow for 360-degree monitoring of students' academic engagement. Students receive guidance, support, and encouragement from their experienced faculty members at each meeting, intending to develop academic competence and value education. Regularly, the meeting discusses student attendance, timetable, syllabus coverage, understanding ability, and other class-related activities, while also providing information on policies and procedures that are aligned with the expected learning outcomes.The report is regularly submitted to the Dean's office after its review and approval from the Head of the Department. It helps to build a strong relationship between their work and their course expectations. Thus, critical and motivating feedback boosts productivity, overall knowledge retention, and overall quality in both faculty and students at HICET.

Course Information Sheet


     The curriculum at Hindusthan College of Engineering and Technology is designed in such a way that students are trained in the most recent technological developments, preparing them for employment in the industry. The institution has successfully implemented Outcome Based Education (OBE). The primary goal of every course is to establish rapport with students. Prior to the start of the course, a carefully facilitated Course Information Sheet (CIS) is prepared. The sheet is divided into twenty-three points, which are as follows: (1) Academic Year, (2) Name of faculty, (3) Department, (4) Programme, (5) Class and semester, (6) Course code and title, (7) Regulations, (8) Core / Elective, (9) Contact hours, (10) Type of course, (11) Number of credits, (12) Course pre-requisites, (13) Course learning objectives, (14) Expected outcome of the course, (15) Course Syllabus, (16) Course Materials, (17) Course plan, (18) Weightage of unit contents, (19) Mapping syllabus with Bloom’s Taxonomy LOT and HOT, (20) Mapping course outcome with Bloom’s Taxonomy LOT and HOT, (21) Mapping Course outcome with graduate attributes, (22) Mapping with programme educational objectives, and (23) Course assessment methods. The major consideration in the CIS is that the weightage for each unit's contents is analyzed using factors such as i) the number of periods allotted for teaching, ii) the usefulness of the content concerning student employment, and iii) the usefulness of the content in understanding other units of the same subject and other subjects prescribed for the programme. If useful, the weightage is set to 1; otherwise, it is set to 0. Faculty members must obtain approval for their Course Information Sheet from the Head of the Department, Dean- Academics, and Principal as early as possible before the start of classes. Throughout the semester, faculty members adhere to the CIS to be actively involved in the teaching process and to engage individual students in the course.

Dynamic SAE Professional Club


     The institution's goal is to encourage students' talent and sharpen their leadership, teamwork, and management abilities. This can be accomplished by offering opportunities to participate in outside events, organizing events, special workshops, and so on. HICET has a dynamic SAE Professional Membership Club that promotes professional growth by giving members access to leadership and career-building opportunities. Our faculty members serve as chairman and treasurer for the SAE-ISS Coimbatore division. Students have access to the most up-to-date technological resources. From 2014 to 2019, the institute SAE club received 49 awards totaling Rs. 5, 15,000/- in cash. The major awards are the Best Acceleration Award, the Endurance Award, the Best Innovation Award, the Best Acceleration Award, the RSTE Visionary Award, the Dronacharya Award, and so on. Every year, the institution contributes to the professional development of faculty and students on registration, vehicle construction, travel, and lodging. The club focuses on connecting with the best in the industry and developing a peer network among SAE members. Every year, the institution hosts an SAE “Student Convention Programme” and a “Heavy Terrain Vehicle Competition” in which national-level students compete. The institute also organizes the “SAUR URJA Vehicle Challenge”, a national-level solar electric vehicle design competition sponsored by the Refrangible Society.
