Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan's Sardar Patel College of Engineering (SPCE) was established in 1962 as a Government Aided Engineering College. It was started with three conventional courses., viz., Civil, Electrical and Mechanical with an intake of 40 in each branch which was subsequently increased to 60. The institute is affiliated to University of Mumbai.
With a view to encourage serving diploma engineers to improve their qualifications and update their knowledge four year Part Time (Evening) Degree Courses in Civil, Electrical and Mechanical branches were introduced in the year 1985. SPCE is the only institute offering such facility for continuing education. The next stage in development aimed at raising the level of the institute to Post Graduate by starting the first Post Graduate Course namely M.E. (Civil) with Structural Engineering Subjects in the year 1988 with the aid from Ministry of Human Resources Development (MHRD), Government of India. Subsequently several Part Time Post Graduate Programmes in Civil and Mechanical Engineering disciplines were introduced.
A further development was made by introducing new degree programmes in emerging areas of Electronics and Computer Engineering. These courses were started in the year 1995 as self-financing programmes.
