CBP Government Engineering College, New Delhi (Hindi: राजकीय अभियांत्रिकी महाविद्यालय, जफ्फारपुर), or 'GEC' was established by the Department of Training and Technical Education, Government of Delhi and named after the first chief minister of Delhi, Ch. Brahm Prakash. The aim of the Government of Delhi is to develop this college as a centre of excellence in Information Civil, Information Technology and Environmental Engineering.[1] The college is affiliated to Guru Gobind Singh Indraprastha University, a state university established by the Government of National Capital Territory of Delhi. The admission process is through IPU-CET national level exam in which around 150000 students appear every year. The institute is the first preferred choice of top rankers in IPU-CET exam who wish to make their career in Civil Engineering as this institute is amongst the only four government colleges in Delhi providing the Civil trade.


The institute obtained 8.5 acres (34,000 m2) in South West Delhi, adjoining Rao Tula Ram Memorial Hospital in Jaffarpur Kalan Village. It shares its boundaries with Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalaya in the east.

Most of the infrastructure and student facilities are newly developed in the college. Hostel facility for students is available in the campus of Ambedkar University, Dwarka. The college also hosts the EDUSAT facility for teaching via video conferencing. Gymnasium facility is available for students as well as staff and faculty. The College Auditorium is fully Air Conditioned and accessible to students at all times. The campus is located in south west Delhi being the best location for its speciality trade, Civil Engineering giving wide access of open land for surveying & other major fields of study in Civil Engineering. The College has facilities for all kinds of Outdoor Sports with a field for Cricket, Football, Rugby, Hockey, a dedicated Badminton court and Basketball Court. For Indoor Sports two table tennis tables and LAN Gaming is available to students.


The college was inaugurated by Delhi's chief minister Smt. Shiela Dikshit in 2007.In a comparison of the sanctioned intake in degree-level courses of engineering in metropolitan cities, Delhi had the lowest intake compared with Bangalore, Mumbai and Kolkata and, therefore, it was felt for further growth of educational facilities in engineering and technology at the degree level. And for this purpose, GEC Delhi was one such step.

GEC-College Entry


The college plans to offer graduate, postgraduate, and doctoral courses in Engineering and Science and to have 2,000 students on its campus. The government of the National Capital Territory of Delhi has approved the creation of a Center of Advanced Studies and Research for Disaster Mitigation Management, Environmental Monitoring and Forecasting, in the campus of the college.

Scientific instruments at campus


A seismometer for round the clock measurement of the ground motion is in the college premises. It was installed under Delhi Strong Motion Instrumentation Network by the Department of Earthquake Engineering, IIT Roorkee in 2007. Measurements of ground motion are done on the Richter scale from this seismometer.

Meteorological instruments

A meteorological data collection station was set up in the college in 2009 by the Indian Meteorological Department (I.M.D.), Pune through online network. The instrument records temperature, intensity of rainfall, wind velocity, atmospheric pressure, humidity and radiation (Global Radiation Sensor) for the area.

Pollution monitors

The Central Pollution Control Board set up a pollution monitoring unit in the college premises in November 2007 for three months. The concentration of Suspended Particulate Matter (SPM) and Respirable Suspended Particulate Matter (RSPM) were monitored. The observations showed that Jaffarpur has one of the best air conditions in Delhi.
