Incubation center

 

The idea of starting an incubation center had gathered momentum in our college during the Academic Year 2016-2017. The idea of initiating an incubation facility in our college derives its roots from the Central Government Scheme of Atal Innovation Mission Scheme.

Objectives under the Scheme:-

Guiding students regarding incubating their ideas through Entrepreneurships development cell:
Our college is voluntarily facilitating constant support and amenities like dedicated floor space, fulltime internet facility, electricity, limited monetary support to departments for providing the atmosphere of entrepreneurship and startup. Necessary information about the need, objectives, and support to the cause of incubation center has been disseminated among the students and staffs.
Being a premier and among the oldest technical institute in Maharashtra, we have a strong network of our alumni who are providing their wholehearted support to the incubation center. Hence many of our alumni are well established entrepreneurs in the field of engineering are willing to provide their expertise and impetus to the undergraduate students for initiation of startups. A dedicated team of faculty members have been appointed for the cause. They provide the necessary grooming to the various innovative ideas brought to their notice and test their feasibility for sustenance and further approval.
