Highlights of the Branches

     In 1875, Sir Syed Ahmad Khan, a great social reformer started a
school. Later on, this school became the M.A.O. College. Finally, in
1920, the College was convertad into a fullfledged University by an 
Act of Parliament. 
Today, The Aligarh Muslim University is one of the ten Central Univer-
sities and a premier institute of learning in India.

Aligarh is situated 130 km. south-east of Delhi, on Delhi-Calcutta rail
and road routes.

 Faculty of Engineering & Technology

  The Faculty of Engineering & Technology is one of the ten Faculties
of the University. Following institutions are part of the Faculty:

1. Zakir Husain College of Engg. & Technology.
2. Institute of Petroleum Studies & Chemical Engg.
3. University Polytechnic.
4. Women's Polytechnic.

 Zakir Husain College of Engg. & Technology

The College is one of the oldest in the country.
It had it's humble beginnings in 1935 with the teaching of a few
technical courses. Regular three-year degree courses were introduced for
Mechanical and Electrical Engineering in 1940-41, followed by Civil
Engg. degree in 1942-43.
The College was renamed "Zakir Husain College of Engg. & Technology" in
1969, after Dr. Zakir Husain, an illustrious alumni of this University,
and former President of The Republic of India.
Today, it is one of the leading technical institutes in the country.
Cources in Micro-electronics, Computer Science & Technology, Environ-
mentol System Design, Air-pollution, Petroleum Processing and  Bio-
instrumentation, etc. have been incorporated in the studies.   Well
equipped laboratories support the curricula. The College offers
Bachelor's (B.Sc.) and Master's (M.Sc.) degree in the following disc-
iplines of engineering:
