MIT Academy of Engineering (MIT AOE), Alandi
MIT Academy of Engineering (MIT AOE) formerly known as Maharashtra Academy of Engineering (MAE) isn't located in a very appreciable place. The area is remote & village-like somewhere far-off in Northern Pune. There are a couple of famous temples around, but that’s about it. Having bikes or cars is an absolute must, if you wish to commute at all.
Infrastructure is pretty good, apart from the fact that they don’t have a ground. Classrooms are clean and well kept, and labs are new. The building is nice and well-maintained too.
Rs. 1,26,000/ year
Students say that its hard to find a single professor who speaks fluent English, and most of the faculty changes every single year. Seniors professors are few, and they don’t seem to make a huge difference either.
Maharashtra Academy of Engg (MAE) is pretty strict about attendance. A lack of punctuality is also frowned upon, with students not being allowed to enter the class even if 5 mins late. Often, parents are called if their wards have attendance issues.
Not too good, not too bad.
Unfortunately, there are NO hangouts anywhere close to Maharashtra Academy of Engg (MAE), Alandi. You need to travel a good 10-12 km for some civilization. Central Pune's JM Road, FC Road and MG Road, the most happening places in Pune, are almost impossible to reach from here unless you take the whole day out for a nice little trip.
Not very nice. Its still under construction, and you find more dogs than people around. They get their water from a boring well nearby, so the hygiene and safety levels are debatable.
Maharashtra Academy of Engineering (MAE) has a sports fest called 'Onyx', which is held towards the end of February. The cultural festival is held in the first couple of weeks of March. Festivals in general are not too welcome here and the celebrations are usually kept low.
Students often crib about the (lack of) placements here. A few lucky students from the Computers and EXTC department manage to get placed, but it is expected to improve as the years pass by, since the college has the MIT legacy attached to it. Average salary for the year 2008-09 was 3 lac, highest was 4.5 lac and lowest was 1.8 lac.
