SKN Sinhgad Institute of Technology & Science was established in 2011, under the brand name of ‘Sinhgad Institutes’. It is located in Lonavala - a place of tourist attraction. The campus is fully residential having all amenities like Hostels, Open air theater, Medical hospital, Canteens, Messes, Sports grounds etc.

The special advantage of being a residential-college is that apart from teaching the University of Pune curriculum, we are able to take extra effort & time to groom the students’ personality. Evening hours after regular lectures are used productively to impart courses like - Soft skill training, Value addition programs (VAP), Project based learning (PBL), CAT/GRE Training centre, Sports & Cultural activities and many more.

The Institute provides a favorable atmosphere for imbibing knowledge and generating new ideas. I expect my students to explore and demonstrate their innate potential so as to make learning a vibrant and enjoyable experience in the four years they are with us.
