Back in 2001, there was only one engineering college in the state. Willingly or unwillingly, students had to leave their home state to other state pursue their engineering dream. This was hard, both on emotions and pocket but there was no alternative. It was than that a group of visionary gentlemen, to fulfil the need of current era laid the foundation of Green Hills Educational Society.
The aim was to make higher professional courses easily available for the students of the state. As engineering was a dream back then, the first college which Green Hills Education society started was Green Hills Engineering College at Kumarhatti, Solan. In 2003, first batch of engineering comprising 239 students started with four streams: Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Electronics and Communication Engineering and Computer Science and Engineering. In 2007, Information Technology stream was introduced followed by civil engineering in 2010. Green Hills Engineering College is continuous helping in Engineering dream.
The college campus is spread in 30 acres of land surrounded by flora and fauna designed brilliantly with excellent facilities and have excellent environment to study. Here Emphasis is laid on developing the students in all round form. We don’t only prepare engineers but leaders of tomorrow.
The college has been approved by All India Council of Technical Education and is affiliated to Himachal Pradesh University and Himachal Pradesh technical university.
The academic buildings have spacious and airy class rooms with well equipped laboratory where students study the material first and then experience it practically. We lay emphasis on practical knowledge and make sure that our class room are more interactive than the traditional lecture halls. To even supplement that we have special classes for personality development and different technical and hobbies club which allows students to even have a cutting edge lead over the others. Seminars and guest lecture are highly frequent, industry experts are invited often to share their experiences and guide the students through the rising competition. This is backed by the students by their long hours of self study in our library having over 15000 books, over 110 journals covering all the aspects of engineering and general studies.
To keep our students updated, we stay updated. We assure students can connect to internet as Wi-Fi has been provided at different locations of the college, generators for uninterruptible power supply,24 hours working ATM machine, a canteen for which caters to both students and teachers and teachers, a health care center where services of qualified medical practitioner can be availed free of cost with an ambulance which helps students, if required immediate medical attention, shifting to nearby hospital. Anti- ragging cell is also there to ensure cordial relation of students. College has its own 10 buses which are available from Solan and Dharampur.
For the all round development of students, sports activities are carried all over the year. Sports like athletics, cricket, badminton, football, basketball etc. have their tournaments every year for the students. A gymnasium is also located within the campus with modern facilities available to students for free.
