Rizvi College of Engineering is a private engineering college, located in the Bandra (west) suburb of Mumbai, in Maharashtra state of India. It was established in 1998, and is managed by the Rizvi Education Society. It is a Muslim religious minority college (i.e., half of all seats are reserved for students from the Muslim religious minority community). It is affiliated to the University of Mumbai[2] (a public university funded by the state government of Maharashtra), is accredited by the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) of the Government of India, and is recognized by the Directorate of Technical Education (DTE)[3] of the state government of Maharashtra.

It offers undergraduate education leading to the University of Mumbai's "Bachelor of Engineering" (B.E.) degree in any 1 of the following 6 disciplines: mechanical engineering, electronics engineering, computer engineering, biotechnology, civil engineering, and electronics and telecommunication engineering. The ordinary duration of these undergraduate courses is 4 years.


The college was established in the year 1998 by the Rizvi Education Society, which is a "Public Charitable Trust" established under the Societies Act 1950 and registered under the provisions of The Bombay Public Act, 1950. The Society started with the Rizvi College of Arts, Science and Commerce and Rizvi High School in the year 1985. It later established Rizvi College of Hotel Management & Catering Technology, Rizvi College of Engineering, Rizvi Law College, Rizvi College of Education and Rizvi College of Fashion Designing & Creative Arts. All these are located at Rizvi Educational Complex near Carter Road, Bandra (West), Mumbai.[4]

Rizvi College of Engineering initially offered instruction leading to the University of Mumbai's Bachelor of Engineering degree (4-year duration) in 3 disciplines: civil engineering, electronics engineering, and mechanical engineering. The first batch of students graduated in the year 2002. New departments were subsequently started: electronics and telecommunication engineering in 2002 (first batch graduating in 2006), computer engineering in 2008 (first batch graduating in 2012), and biotechnology in 2012 (first batch to graduate in 2016).[5] All departments offer degrees of the University of Mumbai.

Campus and location

The College is located near Carter Road, in the Bandra (west) suburb of Mumbai. The campus is an eight-storied building, in which the Rizvi College of Engineering occupies the bottom 6 floors (i.e. ground floor to fifth floor) and the Rizvi College of Architecture occupies the top 2 floors (i.e. sixth and seventh floors). (The administrative and other offices are separate for both the colleges. Except a few minor things like the elevator, there is hardly any sharing of facilities between the two colleges, as is required by rules governing colleges in India.)

Other institutes of the Rizvi Education Society (Rizvi College of Arts, Science and Commerce; Rizvi High School; Rizvi College of Hotel Management & Catering Technology; Rizvi Law College; Rizvi College of Education; and Rizvi College of Fashion Designing & Creative Arts) are located nearby. Together, all these institutes form the "Rizvi Education Complex".


The admissions to the undergraduate programs are made on the basis of scores of engineering entrance examination.

Admissions to half of all seats in each course are managed by the "Common Admission Process" (CAP) of the Directorate of Technical Education of the state government of Maharashtra. Various cast-, region- and gender-based reservations are implemented in these, as per the government rules.[6]

Admissions to the other half of the seats are managed by the college administration. These include seats for the Muslim religious minority, as well as "management quota" in which admission may be obtained via a special donation to the college. Here, too, scores of the engineering entrance examination are used.[7]

Among other requirements, a candidate has to secure at least 50% marks in aggregate of physics, chemistry and mathematics in the class 12 board examinations (or equivalent), as per the rules of the Directorate of Technical Education.

Type of document Copies available
Books 26175
Journals 50
Online databases 4
CD ROMs 450
Newspapers 13
E-books 165

The college library has around 26,000 books, periodicals, newspapers, CD-ROMs, journals, magazines & online journals. It possesses institutional membership of the Library of Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay.[13]

The library has an "Open Access System" (OAS) where 3 dedicated computers allow the students and staff members to retrieve the bibliographic details of the documents to be located.[14]

There are 2 reading rooms: one for students, and another one for staff members. Library timings may be extended before and during examinations, to assist students in studying.

Each student can apply for, and is then issued, two library cards, on which he/she can take books for "reference" (returning them on the same day) or for "issue" (returning them after maximum duration of 1 week). Like in most other libraries, a nominal fine is charged on defaulters, to ensure prompt return of all materials that may be issued.
