Known as the 'Oxford of the East', which is home to some of the oldest and elite institutions, Pune has truly lived up to its reputation of being the educational hub of the country. From a student-friendly environment to unparallel industry exposure, the city has been wooing students from different parts of the globe. Situated in this diversified city, Aissms College of Engineering (AISSMSCOE) is one such destination, which has been rightly satiating the thrust for a quality engineering education since 1992. Commenced under the umbrella of All India Shri Shivaji Memorial Society, the college earned the ranking among first 200 colleges in NIRF and ranking of 50th in India among Private Engineering Colleges and Overall 69th in i3RC by Times Engineering Survey-2018.

"All India Shri Shivaji Memorial Society is one of the premier heritage-group of institutes now. In fact, as early as 1917, the founders of the society - late Shri Shrimant Chhatrapati Shahu Maharaj of Kolhapur and late H.H. Alija Bahadur Madhavrao Scindia Maharaj of Gwalior - had realized the need to bring about reforms through education. Today, the Society has made a huge foray into the noble field of education, meeting the all-around requirements on various fronts including emerging areas," says Dr. Dattatraya S Bormane, Principal, AISSMSCOE.

Promoting the holistic development of the students, AISSMSCOE never ignores the need for integrating valuable, non-technical skills into the educational paradigm

Affiliated to the Savitribai Phule Pune University, AISSMSCOE is running extensive programmes in different domains of engineering such as UG programmes in Chemical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering (Sandwich), E&TC, Production Engineering (Sandwich) and PG programmes in Chemical Engineering, Civil Engineering (Structure), Computer Engineering, Electrical Power Electronics & Drives, E&TC (Microwaves), Mechanical Engineering (Both in Automotive & Design). "Considering the growing importance of research, we also offer Doctorate programme to our Chemical Engineering students," shares Dr. Bormane.

Promoting the holistic development of the students, the college never ignores the need for integrating valuable, non-technical skills into the educational paradigm. "Today, the scenario has changed. Companies look for candidates who are overall developed, as only technical skills are not enough for sustaining in the contemporary world," pinpoints Dr. Bormane. The management of the college is proactive in organizing Symposia, Workshops, Conferences and national level students' symposium and exposition viz. 'AISSMS Engineering Today' where the students can realize their inherent talents and showcase the skills. Dr. Bormane elaborates, "In fact, we conduct an inter-college event every year named as "Ashwamedh", which includes 8 cultural events and 8 sports events and an Annual Social Gathering 'Shivanjali'. Through these activities, we ensure that our students are instilled with essential values and etiquettes".
