Dean – Faculty of Engineering
Dr. Vishwanath Karad MIT World Peace University was established by the Maharashtra State Government Act in the year 2017 by amalgamation of the institutes of MAEER’s MIT at its Kothrud, Pune campus. MIT is considered as a benchmark in engineering education. Efforts taken by the highly motivated teachers under the leadership of Hon. Prof. Vishwanath D. Karad, Founder Director, and the response given by the students in the past have made the Institute an important center of engineering education in the country. Past students spread over all corners of the world, take pride in calling themselves an ‘alumnus of MIT, Pune’. They take active interest in the academic development of the department and also the current students by mentoring.
Spacious buildings, lush green lawns, well equipped laboratories, good library with e-resources for scholarly studies, and more over a peaceful atmosphere make learning a pleasure here. The teaching faculty members are experienced, caring and devoted to teaching.
The basic purpose of the engineering faculty at MIT-WPU is to transform a young, enthusiastic student into a professionally competent engineer capable of accepting the challenges of the industry. The focus is on ‘creative learning’ based on the unique approaches such as continuously updated curriculum, project based learning and most importantly ample choice in selecting the subjects of interest. Internships are provided for interaction with the experts from the industry through guest lectures, field visits, vacation training, activities of the student chapters of international professional bodies, sponsorships to technical paper presentation competitions etc.
Participation in sports, cultural and spiritual activities, rural immersion, environmental and social drives, trekking etc is encouraged to develop a high level of emotional quotient and a team spirit in the students. We feel that such qualities and skills over and above the professional inputs are essential for a long prospective career in the rapidly changing global scenario. We at MIT-WPU, Pune are thus committed to impart a value based universal education to develop ‘winning personalities’.
We invite you to be part of this long, successful tradition and be a leader in nation building activities.
