Yeshwantrao Chavan College of Engineering (YCCE) is an Autonomous engineering college under the University of Nagpur, India. It is located in Nagpur city in Hingna (Wana Dongri). The college was established in 1984. It is named after Yashwantrao Chavan, first Chief Minister of Maharashtra state, the past Deputy Prime Minister of India. The principal is Dr. U.P. Waghe. The college got the autonomous status in 2010 making it the first college in the 85 years history of University of Nagpur to get autonomy. The college is run by Nagar Yuwak Shikshan Sanstha of Meghe Group.


YCCE was founded in 1984 by Datta Meghe, a former Parliamentarian and a veteran state leader.

It has been named in honour of Yashwantrao Chavan, the first Chief Minister of Maharashtra and the fifth Deputy Prime Minister of India.

It started with a relatively small campus and only two engineering departments— Civil and Electronics and was affiliated to the Rashtrasant Tukadoji Maharaj Nagpur University. It only had undergraduate programs. The college continued to progress rapidly and by 2001 had seven different departments and offered postgraduate programs as well.

In 2007, YCCE was one of the few colleges from India to be granted funds from the World Bank for further development of its infrastructure under the Technical Education Quality Improvement Fund (TEQIP).

In November 2009, the University Grants Commission conferred YCCE as an autonomous institution affiliated to the Rashtrasant Tukadoji Maharaj Nagpur University.[1]This was in recognition to continuous excellence from the college students in university examinations and availability of infrastructure to sustain independent imparting of engineering education. It was the first privately operated engineering institution in Central India to achieve such a status.


The campus is 14 acres wide.

There is an on-campus boys hostel with all possible amenities. Sports facilities for the college students are present with Basketball, Football, Cricket, Badminton and Gymnasium within the campus.

The main Campus buildings are as follows: - Library and Administration Block - Mechanical Engineering Department - Civil Engineering Department - Electronics Engineering Department - Electrical Engineering Department - Computer Engineering Department - Science Department - Central Computing lab - Workshop - Engineering Drawing Lab - Fluid Engineering Lab - Language Lab - Hostel buildings - Gymnasium - Canteen 1 and Canteen 2


  • Admission is done based on the score obtained in 12th standard or JEE Mains exams.
