The College of Technology and Engineering was established in 1964 by offering undergraduate course in Agricultural Engineering. It had its beginning in the Rajasthan College of Agriculture and shifted to its present premises on new campus of the University in 1968. Academic and physical facilitates of Udaipur Polytechnic was also transferred by state government to the College in 1975-76. However, considering industrial growth and human resource development in the state, additional degree programmes in Electrical, Mechanical and Mining Engineering in 1996, Computer Science and Engineering in 2000, Electronics and Communication Engineering in 2006, Information Technology and Civil Engineering in 2007 were added. All degree programmes have approval from AICTE. The admissions to the degree programmes are made through State level Pre Engineering Test(RPETEAP) and All India Engineering Entrance Examination(AIEEE). Fifteen per cent seats in Agricultural Engineering are also filled up through ICAR.
The college also offers post graduate programme leading to M.E. (Ag) & Ph.D. in Soil & Water Conservation Engineering, Irrigation Water Management Engineering, Farm Machinery & Power Engineering, Processing & Food Engineering and Renewable Energy Sources Engineering. The post graduate programme in Agricultural Engineering was started in 1978-79. The Ph.D. programmes in all specialization areas of Agricultural Engineering were started in 1996-97. The college also offers job oriented post graduate diploma programme in Organic Agriculture Management. Post graduate programmes leading to M. E. (Mechanical) in CAD/CAM and M. E. (Electrical) in Power Systems and Control Engineering and power electronics, M. E. (Mining) in Mine Planning, M. E. (Computer) in Computer Engineering, MBA (Engineering and Technology) have also been added from this session.
The college is located at a distance of about 7 km from Udaipur City railway station and bus terminal and about 2 km from Rana Pratap Nagar railway station. It is accessible by a by-pass road branching near Pratapnagar from the National Highway No. 76 leading to Chittorgarh.
