Saraswati Education Society (SES) was formed in 1993 by Dr Nandakumar Y Tasgaonkar. He is the main founder Trustee and Chairman of the Trust. The main objective of the Trust is to establish and run various educational institutions in Engineering, Management, Pharmacy, Medical, and Dental. The trust had purchased land at Bhivpuri Road station, Taluka Karjat, Dist. Raigad and established ten Institutions from its inception since 10 Oct 2003. SES is now providing educational services in variety of streams in engineering, Management, Computer Studies, Polytechnic, and Pharmacy. SES has its education campus named as Dr. Nandakumar Tasgaonkar Education Complex located at Bhivpuri Road, Taluka Karjat, District Raigad, which is spread over more than 130 acres. All institutions operating under SES are approved by AICTE, DTE, UGC, and Government of Maharashtra. All institutions are affiliated to Mumbai University. SES is serving the society with education using a strong infrastructure base for more than 8000 students and well qualified teaching and supporting staff. Name of the Institutions operating under SES are as follows:- - Yadavrao Tasgaonkar Institutes of Engineering & Technology - Yadavrao Tasgaonkar College of Engineering & Management - Yadavrao Tasgaonkar Polytechnic - Yadavrao Tasgaonkar School of Business Management - Yadavrao Tasgaonkar Institutes of Management Studies & Research - Yadavrao Tasgaonkar Institute of Pharmacy (Diploma) - SES's Faculty of Management - SES's Faculty of Engineering - Dr. Nandakumar Tasgaonkar Polytechnic The portfolio of courses offered by the SES is based at just one location within our campuses. This provides added advantages to the students as compared to a college operating with standalone environment. Students interaction and knowledge sharing has become possible between different branches of engineering and management which takes place regularly. Several curricular activities like workshops, seminars, conferences at national and international level and guest lectures are planned and conducted throughout the academic calendar. Competent professionals from the corporate and academia are invited for these events. To enable an all round student development, several extracurricular activities are conducted throughout the year to provide the essential boost to compliment the higher education process. The synergy from integrated infrastructure and shared resources has provided better exposure to the students to explore their knowledge base. In our integrated and synergized environment, the students can explore better opportunities in terms of academic excellence, extracurricular activities and placement opportunities. Students and other vital elements of SES can thus reap the benefits of consolidated brand value of the society as a whole. Further, these operations add numerous benefits on various parameters to the trust for strengthening its pillars. SES continues to strive to work hard for higher education and academic excellence of the students in its endeavour to enhance the academic process. SES has a well established independent Center for Student Career Development and Placements (CCD). While on one side SES has the CCD to communicate with Corporate to provide ample opportunities to students to get placed, on the other side SES has the Entrepreneurship Cell (E Cell), which is recently formed to coach, guide and encourage students to become entrepreneurs.
