After successfully completing Degree in Electrical Engineering and Business Management, Mr.Sanjib Kumar Rout decided to do something different. Being driven by an Inner urge and irresistible passion for the spread of technical education, he set up an Industrial training-cum- production centre in Bhubaneswar as his first venture. Following this, two more technical institutes were soon set up in and around the Temple City by him. Of these two, the first one was a polytechnic and the second one, a degree-level engineering college. For the smooth management, all the Institutes were clubbed together under one banner popularly known as C.V.Raman Group of Institutions (CVRGI). What made his job easy was the new Education Policy of the Government formulated and implemented in the year 1996-97.
His sincere efforts to build up a group of educational institutions with a difference has helped him to carve out a niche for himself as a visionary and reformist educationist, contributing largely towards socio-educational growth and development with unique pedagogy and leadership role. In a short span of 23 years, CVRGI became a leading brand and a group of Institutions with Its own USP.
C. V. Raman College of Engineering (CVRCE), the flagship institution of the CVRGI bouquet, and the pride of Odisha, has, of late, become an iconic Institution by winning the 1stever Gold Medal for India In Water Technology at World Skill, Kazan, Russia. It has also become an undisputed leader of Future of Skills by offering quality education and training in technical skills.
