History of MSBTE
The establishment of a separate board responsible for higher education dates back to 60 years. Before the country’s independence from the British Raj, the diploma courses in Engineering and Technology were provided by institutions like the College of Engineering, Pune, Veermata Jijabai Technological Institute, Mumbai, Cusrow Wadia Institute of Technology, Pune, and Government Polytechnic, Nagpur. A Directorate of Technical Education was set up in 1948 to control technical education at all levels. With industrial development, the demand for diploma courses also went up, and the government established a separate Board of Technical Examinations in August 1963.
MSBTE was established to ensure that the Diploma level Technical Education constantly matches the latest requirements of Technology and industry and includes the all-round personal development of students including social concerns.
