CEC A Society under S.R. Act XXI of 1860, was established in May 2, 1994 to strengthen the need of computer education in Assam. A need for the distinct institution specializing in technical education was felt, that would be distinct from a few institutions which were until then responsible for providing computer education in the city. It was also recognized that the purely empirically-based professional computer education provided earlier, by some sub-experienced professionals would not meet the growing needs for training modern computer professionals. The institute was expected to cater to the need of providing training to the students who want to pursue a career in computer, fashion designing, textile / interior designing, journalism & other management courses. To fulfill these objectives, the institute was expected to operate as a resource, providing employment generation in the field of technical education. The institute was expected to run as a centre of excellence for studies in professional courses.
