Situated near the twin bridge flyover of Punjagutta, Aurora Group is only a stone throw away from these thriving industries. In fact, for the past two decades, Aurora Group has been acting as an excellent feeder-service for the businesses to flourish by preparing ready-to-employ graduates. Enrolling more than 6,000 students every year, Aurora Group has become one of the largest private education bodies in South India, offering quality undergraduate and postgraduate level professional courses in Engineering, Management, Commerce, Science, Education, Law, Pharmacy, Architecture and Information Technology.
