Co-curricular Activities

“It is in a healthy body that a healthy mind resides”. These were wise words said by Swami Vivekananda and we at AIT follow it to the core.

Yogesh Singh Mallik, fondly known as “fauji Bryant”, was selected as a member of the University team in basketball.

Making everyone sway to their rhythm the AIT Choreo team, "The Feet Tappers" won the choreo competion in almost every college fest of Pune starting from Gandhar to Transcend, making every choreo team in town wary of them. 

Nikhil Kapur became a university tennis player in his first year.

Varun Bajaj was appointed as the captain of the university team in squash.

And just to prove that all this really does lead to a healthy mind, our genius cuber Arvind Sama carved his name in history by being entered in the Guinness book of world records by making a record for solving the most cubes while hanging upside down. He solved 60 cubes in under 30 minutes!!!

The OSS (open source software) club conducted a workshop on big data and Hadoop for all those who were interested for three days (15th to 17th July) and it was received with great enthusiasm.

Placements / Guest Lectures

"We put the E in Engineering"
Starting from the vision to completing their mission, the esteemed  Training and Placement department of Army Institute of Technology, Pune has been consistently delivering in producing quality engineers at par with the industry requirements. Ranging from workshops and seminars to guest lectures by reputable maestros in varying fields, this department has done it all !!
A lot of hard work goes into training an engineer to meet expectations. After all, his work determines the progress or egress of a country. The education that this institute imparts has world class quality and acts as definitive link between all the four departments and their respective industries.

“How in all ofhell did you do that?"Enzo shrugged. "I'm an Engineer," he said simply, as if it would explain everything.”
That’s what our engineers reply when asked about  their technical prowess in the aptitude tests. That kind of cockiness and professional ego has 4 year of hard work put in by the Training and Placement Office which tirelessly pushes their students to reinvent and renovate their strategies to crack the hardest Interviews of major core companies.

Psychometric tests and career counselling for all the BE students were organized by Dheya Career Mentors and various Aptitude tests were conducted by Mr. Vikrant Sukhtankar for all the TE students. An Innovative Challenge was organized in his college by the Edelweiss Springboard team  and an Entrepreneurship Awareness Program by Career Corner Education at the beginning of 2016.  

This college also has an history of illustrious alumni who have a sense of loyalty ingrained in them by the very same Training and Placement Office, years back during their Academic days. They conducted UGCON-Amalgam which awarded the students with a total prize money of Rs.54,000 to the students.
The corporate shark of the Urban Mobility world, Schindler,  had Mr. Danesh Kamath conduct a guest lecture on Use of Embedded and Automated Systems for TE students.

Another major milestone for this office was the position achieved in the Sparkle competition by KPIT.
These guys sure know their stuff. The kind of motivation hat the students display instill a sense of " yeh dil maange more !!"  in all the junior batches that are competent enough to join this prestigious institution.
“One man’s “magic” is another man’s engineering. “Supernatural” is a null word.”
