With the advent of liberalization in the early 90s, India opened the doors of
her economy to foreign players. This influx of global players into the Indian market and their emphasis on using
state-of-the-art technologies created a spurt in the demand for contemporary engineering courses in the suburbs
of India's commercial capital Mumbai.
Never one to ignore the demands of the
industry and academic fraternity, the Shri Vile Parle Kelavani
Mandal, with prior approval from the University of Mumbai, the
Government of Maharashtra, the Directorate of Technical Education
and the All India Council for Technical Education, decided to
establish a benchmark-setting engineering college.
The Dwarkadas J. Sanghvi College of Engineering, named after Shri Dwarkadas J. Sanghvi,
was thus born in 1994. The college has a total built-up area of 22862 sq.m.
