Two BITS Pilani alumni in Silicon Valley had an idea of making a direct impact on the engineering education by starting an engineering college in their home town in India. Chandra Bhople (74 batch) and Devendra Raut (88 batch) are founders of Nuva College of Engineering & Technology, Nagpur. Nuva College of Engineering & Technology is the first engineering college in India founded by alumni of BITS Pilani.

Mile stones for the college project include Land acquisition in Dec 2007, Construction start Feb 2008 and Finish in June 2008. "The phase-I of the project was completed in less than 7 months, including all the approvals" said Chandra "and we could not have been successful without the family and friends who have local presence."

According to the founders of Nuva, there are two objectives involved in this initiative. It is the first step towards BITSians making significant and large scale difference to the quality of engineering education in India. Second, equally important, is to help make the BITS Pilani brand the biggest force in India. "Somebody had to make the first move and start the first private engineering college where founders were BITSians" says Chandra, "just imagine the collective impact of say 6 BITS Pilani campuses and 10 alumni-founded colleges after 5 years. Without doubt, this will help make BITS Pilani as probably the biggest brand for engineering education in India" he continues.
