Surrounded on two sides by the historical Deepor Beel
(a huge natural Wetland now declared a bird sanctuary by the Government of India) and evergreen hills on the outskirts of Guwahati city, about 13km on the west, Assam Engineering College spells a magical impact on the visitors. Assam Engineering College was established in 1955, the first undergraduate engineering college in the northeastern India. It started with Civil Engineering discipline, and within a few years other departments came into existence. With a well spread out lush green campus, AEC has been the hub centre of many intellectual and extra-curricular activities in Assam for almost half a century.
