is an engineering college in Worli
, a neighbourhood of Mumbai, India. The college, set to receive an 'A' grade from the N.A.A.C., is constantly ranked as one of the best engineering colleges affiliated to the Mumbai University. It has been approved by the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE
WIEECT was specifically established in 1984 as post graduate three year integrated engineering degree B.Sc.(Tech) for B.Sc.(Physics/Maths/Electronics) student. Since 1984 this institute produced excellent technocrates who created WIEECT's identity in top notch industries in India and abroad.
From year 2004 onwards WIEECT offers a four year bachelor of engineering courses in Computer, Electronics & Telecommunication, Bio-medical and Instrumentation streams. Its active student community hosts branches of several professional societies including IEEE, CSI, IETE, ISA etc.
The Watumull Institute of Electronic Engineering and Computer Technology is located at Worli, a posh locality in south Mumbai. It has an incredible location, with its imposing structure towering over the Arabian Sea.
