Birla Vishvakarma Mahavidyalaya Engineering College (BVM) was established in Vallabh Vidyanagar as a multidimensional experiment in 1948 A.D. Birla Vishvakarma Mahavidyalaya (B.V.M.) was the first college in this educational township and the first engineering college in Gujarat. Shri Bhaikaka, Bhikhakaka and their team finalized the project. It was scrutinized and approved by Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel (First Union Home Minister of free India). Sardar Patel then convinced Late Shri Ghanshyamdasji Birla who donated Rs. 25 lakh in 1948 A.D. While BVM started with 150 admissions in 3 branches in 1948, it is admitting 420 in six branches as in 2001 in full time under graduate programs.
