History of MIT
This realization embarked the journey of MAEER - in 1983 with the establishment of Maharashtra Institute of Technology (MIT), one of the first private engineering colleges in Maharashtra which still remains the flagship institute of the group.
With the sole objective of meeting the long felt need of a centre of scientific and educational research, which would meet the challenges of the present and the future technical advancements of the fast changing world, MIT Group of Institutions was established as a society and charitable trust. Since then, the MIT Group of Institutions has grown leaps and bounds and has made a strong impact in the field of education throughout the country. With more than 10 campuses in the state of Maharashtra covering almost 1000 acres of area, the MIT Group provides education in the fields of Engineering, Medicine, Pharmacy, Marine Engineering, Insurance, Distance Education, Telecom Management, Lighting, Design, Food & Technology, Retail Management, and Masters in Business Administration, School of Government and also School Education. At any given point of time, more than 50000 students are pursuing various courses all over our 65+ institutes. With this statistics, the MIT Group is almost a big University by itself.
An initial step taken by a great visionary Dr. Vishwanath Karad, who nurtured a strong conviction to provide the best of education to the society today, has resulted in a strong educational realm. MIT Group today boasts of the best infrastructure facilities and application of varied teaching methodologies. With highly qualified and dedicated teachers, the group has grown leaps and bounds and will continue to do so looking for both horizontal and vertical growth patterns. Presently, we have more than 4000 teaching staff and almost more than 6000 non teaching staff. Most of our institutes are affiliated to the University of Pune as of now, but, as per the recent changes in the Government Regulations, we have applied for a University status and very soon, MIT Group of Institutions will be a fully fledged University.
It is worth mentioning that in appreciation of the work carried out by MAEER's MIT, Pune under the banner of World Peace Centre in championing the cause of promoting the Value Based Universal Education System for spreading the message of peace in the society, based on the appropriate blending of science, technology and spirituality.
