Symbiosis Institute of Technology, a constituent of Symbiosis International (Deemed University) was established in the year, 2008 and currently offers B. Tech programmes in Civil Engineering, Computer Science and Engineering, Electronics & Telecommunication Engineering, Information Technology and Mechanical Engineering and M.Tech programmes in Computer Aided Design and Manufacture, Electronics and Telecommunication Engineering, Computer Science and Engineering , Geoinformatic & Surveying Technology and M.Sc. programme in Physics. Research programmes leading to Ph. D. Degree have already been started in Faculty of Engineering of Symbiosis International (Deemed University).
The Institute endeavors to provide quality technical education in line with the requirements of today's competitive industry and fast paced technological developments. The curriculum developed by the Institute lays a stress both on basics and latest developments. Realizing the fact that faculty is the most important resource, special efforts have been made to find, recruit and retain highly qualified and competent faculty. Infrastructure created and acquired by the Institute, like all other Symbiosis Institutes, is of a very high quality and includes multimedia classrooms, well equipped labs including software for CAD/CAM, simulations and other applications, well stocked modern library with digital media, auditorium, seminar halls, separate hostels for boys & girls and playgrounds.
India is one of the fastest growing economies and the contribution of Geoinformatics towards growth has been immense. In spite of having gained international recognition at a very early stage, Geoinformatics is gradually gaining popularity in the Indian subcontinent as well. Symbiosis Pune, was amongst the first to recognize this brewing change of trends and accordingly took initiatives that led to the inception of SIG in 2004. Once SIG came into existence, there was no looking back. In line with the legacy of Symbiosis colleges in pune, SIG provides its students with the best in terms of education and learning environment. Our courses have been aimed at not merely educating students but to create competent and expert human resources to meet the ever-growing demand of digitization, environmental impact, GIS development, map analysis, remote sensing, watershed management, photogrammetric mapping, navigation and e-governance.
At SIG, our endeavor is to impart education and training in geospatial technologies. Our programmes aim to create highly trained professional equipped with a cutting edge. It helps students the students to create their own career roadmap.
