About 65 km from Delhi, Meerut, the second largest city in the NCR region, has seen a great transformation in the recent past. With various ongoing developments in the infrastructure, education, commercial and IT sectors, Meerut is gaining more colors, apart from being known as the largest producer of handloom work, scissors, sports goods and musical instruments. Now, in the western Uttar Pradesh, Meerut holds the distinction of being the largest hub of education with institutes like engineering, medical, management, pharmacy colleges and many more. City Educational and Social Welfare Society, which was established in 1989 by Late Chandra Sen Agarwal, has played an important role in the process of gaining this new stature for Meerut.

"The society was the results of initiatives taken by Late Chandra Sen Agarwal who was a great educationist and spent all his life towards the cause of education. Like-minded philanthropists of this region joined hands with him and took upon social causes, and established vocational schools to train the technical workers," says Vishnu Saran, Chairman, MIET Group of Institutions. The first establishment of City Educational and Social Welfare Society was a vocational training school (10 + 2), which materialized the growing need for education for the young generation in the western part of Uttar Pradesh. Saran adds, "He (Late Chandra Sen Agarwal)was far-sighted and could foresee the need of young men and women to be trained for industrialized India under the shadows of Globalization of trade and established Meerut Institute of Engineering & Technology at Meerut in 1997."

At present, the institutions under the umbrella of MIET Group are flourishing with the leadership of Saran, a great visionary who is carrying on the dream philanthropic project nurtured by his father, the Founder-Chairman of MIET Group, Late Chandra Sen Agarwal. In fact, the promoters of the society have good resources, excellent social status, and goodwill in the city and nearby areas. They are very well conversant with the requirements of an educational organization and their associates have expertise in the management of the Schools. The Institutes run by the society are running different technical courses such as MBA, PGDM, MCA, M. Tech. in Biotechnology, Computer Science & Engg. and Digital Communications, M. Pharm. In Pharmaceutical Chemistry, Pharmaceutics and Pharmacology, B. Tech. in Biotechnology, Chemical Engg., Computer Science & Engg., Civil Engg., Electronics & Communication Engg., Electronics & Instrumentation Engg., Electrical Engineering, Information Technology, Mechanical Engg., and B. Pharm.
