College of Engineering (COEP), Pune was established in 1854 as Poona Engineering Class and Mechanical School, its aim being to provide suitable instruction for subordinate officers in the Public Works Department. The College was affiliated to University of Bombay. In 2003, the college got autonomous status, thus giving it the freedom to set its own curricula and manage its own finances. This has been the biggest change as far as pedagogy at COEP is concerned. In 1879 the name of the college was changed from “The Poona Civil Engineering College” to “The College of Science”.
COEP offers nine UG and twenty-three PG programs, and has more than 3200 students enrolled in its various courses. The vision of the college is to pursue excellence in all facets of institute functioning. The mission is to be a leader amongst engineering institutions in India, constantly pursuing excellence, and offering world class education with values. It is accredited by NBA.
