PHCET accomplishes ‘A’ Grade accreditation by NAAC

Becomes youngest Engineering College in Raigad region to achieve the feat

Pillai HOC College of Engineering and Technology (PHCET), Rasayani which was established in 2009 and affiliated to University of Mumbai and also recognised by All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) succeeded in getting the recognition and also accomplishing a great feat of getting ‘A’ grade by the National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) of India.

In a press conference organised on Thursday, June 6th, in the premises of PHCET the Head of Department of all the faculties and all the management were happy and excited to share their achievement with the media.

Nivedita Shreyans, Director, Public Relations of Pillai’s group, said, “We are really proud of the achievements of our Engineering College and for it we got support of all our staff members and students. The officials from NAAC came in our premises to inspect and they found that in each and every parameters we are doing our best and the reason they decided to give us ‘A’ Grade Accreditation. On 28th of March we received the happy news from the NAAC officials. Achieving this feat is a proof and validation of consistent efforts of our college. The best part is that we are one of the youngest Engineering Colleges in the Raigad region to be awarded ‘A’ grade in the first cycle by NAAC and that too in the first ten years of its existence. Many colleges take at least two cycles to achieve the ‘A’ grade by NAAC. After this achievement I can say that PHCET has been on a continuous growth trajectory.”

She further added, “The ‘A’ grade is being judged on the basis of good infrastructure, faculties, good governance, student support, and there are few other parameters which we passed in. The ‘A’ grade Accreditation is valid up to 27th March, 2024. PHCET also serves the needs of the community around it considering the fact that many of the students come from economically backward strata. Some of them are first generation learners and from underprivileged communities. The only way forward for the young people that PHCET serves is through education -most of all technical education. A good quality education today is a sure shot way for any aspiring young person to pull oneself out of poverty and morass and at PHCET we fulfil this need admirably.”
