About Poddar Group
Poddar Motto “Providing education with a purpose”
Poddar Group of Institutions, a synonym of vibrancy, dynamism and enriched positivity begun with its journey way back in 1998 under a thought-provoking vision of Dr. Anand Poddar. Concretely, “Education with a Purpose to Shape a Better Future”remains the mainstream motto of the group. With the advent of industrialization and ever-increasing demand of professionally trained skilled youth, our core focus has been to conceptualize the ideology what lies beyond academics; skill development, entrepreneurship, and eco-system nurturing leading to the generation of self-sustained youth of “New India”.
The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. But it involves deliberation and much hesitation. The magnificent journey of Poddar Group of Institutions, however, began in 1998 with a surge of enthusiasm that, in itself, makes a poignant tale. It is an inspiring tale and in the words of the founder of the Poddar Group, Dr. Anand Poddar, it says:-
“In spite of being from a business class family, I was working as a trainer because the want to strengthen the Youth was always in the back of my mind. Even in the 5th decade of India’s independence young graduates were struggling to even get a job. Specialization in every sector was being introduced in India. I figured out that the lack of significant and innovative programs were the reasons. My heart cried out to see that the Youth with so much potential aren’t getting what they deserved.
That was a golden instance where Poddar group was formed with an aim to foster learning and achieve excellent standards of quality education keeping in pace with rapidly changing technologies and best practices.”
Thus the institution was established to bridge the gap by emphasizing on value-based programs to make students corporate ready, and train them for even startups.
The group has been envisioned to impart Purposeful education initiating from the preliminary school education, various UG and PG programs to high-end research programs (Ph.D., Incubate Technical Support Programs) thereby catering to both industry-specific and employability options encompassing multiple facets of divergent disciplines. The group’s college focus on Best Innovative Academic practices reinforced with student mentoring, learning and support activities through various Clubs and cells. Our Alumni are carrying the rich values and virtues imbibed making us proud by scaling newer heights in different facets of the careers.
