The Siemens High Voltage laboratory is accommodated in a special block in the south wing. The electrical workshop is housed in the extension building. The department has 14 laboratories with ultra modern equipments such as Digital Signal Processing, Microprocessor, Communications, Bio-medical, Electrical Motors and Drives and Instrumentation. These laboratories have testing facilities such as high voltage testing of induction motors, transformers, insulation resistance of compounds, impulse testing up to 500KV and power frequency testing as per I.S. norms.

* Civil and Environmental Engineering Department

The Civil and Environmental Engineering department at VJTI is situated in the extension of the main building on the first floor. The department has facilities in Environmental Engineering, Air-Pollution and Noise Pollution, Bio-assay, Transportation and Highway Engineering, Land Survey, Geology and Plumbing. All the laboratories are equipped with modern equipment and testing facilities. The department has started a post-graduate course in Construction Management in addition to the postgraduate course.

* Production Engineering Department

The office, staff-rooms and class-rooms are on the second floor of the Mechanical Engineering block at VJTI. The laboratories are on the ground and the mezzanine floors. The department (earlier named as Industrial Engineering Department) was set-up in 1959. Four year degree course in Production Engineering was started in 1973. The department has four well-equipped laboratories viz. Process laboratory, Metrology laboratory, Work-study laboratory and Computer laboratory.

* Computer Technology Department

The department situated at the Southern wing mainly on the first floor at VJTI was formed in 1985. The computer center was established in 1976 in collaboration with the National Centre for Software Development and Computing Techniques located in the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research. It is housed near the Institute's quadrangle. A course in Computer Applications was started in 1984, Master’s course in 1985 and a Bachelor’s course in 1986. The computer center has a facility with over 150 PCs and workstations for software development in several areas.
