Industry Institute Interaction

Atharva College of Engineering always believes in excellence in education. The executive trustee of the college Hon. Shri Sunil Rane Sir is of the firm belief that there is more to a student success then only plain rote based studies. He always wants to organize something extra for the students of ATHARVA COLLEGE OF ENGINEERING. Under the guidance of his vision, Atharva in association with EDGEUCATERS created and organized a first of its kind knowledge sharing platform for the betterment of its students called Tech – Meet. Tech – meet envisions a continuous knowledge and ideas sharing Dias on the lines of TED whereby any enthusiast will be invited to speak on issues ranging from technology to ideas to business development to experiences, which will in turn help our students become market ready.

The Atharva team of professors led by the Head of Information Technology department, Prof. Jyoti Chinchole and Head of Computer Department, Prof. Mahendra Patil played a great part in coordinating the entire event led by our Principal Dr. Shrikant P. Kallurkar Sir under the valuable guidance of Hon. Shri Sunil Rane Sir and Director, Prof. Dr.P.N.Nemade Sir
