In 1955 after the first bifurcation of the State from the Combined Madras Government, Departments of major branches of Engineering--Mechanical, Civil & Electrical were established on the University Campus. The present AUCE (A) Campus (the North Campus of the Andhra University) had been established in 1955 on a sprawling area extending to 160 acres. The shift had seen the North Campus emerge as the present Andhra University College of Engineering-Autonomous.

The four sections of Basic Sciences have been upgraded to individual departments in 1979.
