History of GCEE(IRTT)

The Institute started functioning on 10/10/1984 as an automobile research oriented institute under the auspices of the institute of Road Transport(IRT),Taramani,Chennai and the State Transport Undertakings(STUs) as per G.O.MS.No.479 of the Department of Science and Technology,dated 26/04/1984.

The Institute,unique in nature, was started with the lofty ideals of providing quality engineering to the poor and underprivileged sections of the society.

The goverment approved the reservation of 40% of the seats for the wards of STU employees, which was subsequently increased to 50%. Now the reservation has been reduced to 35% as per the Goverment of Tamilnadu orders.The institute is being run with the corpus fund created with the contribution from STU employees.

The institute started with an intake of 120 students with 30 students in each descipline.
