It was the dream of President Hon. Dr. Sanjay Patil, to convert the campus into a University. And it was his collaborated efforts with Vice President Hon. Satej Patil, Trustee MLA Hon. Ruturaj Patil, Trustee Hon. Prithviraj Patil and the entire team at Talsande, that a proposal was submitted for a state private University. As per the laws of the Government there are only 4 agricultural Universities in the state but the Agricultural Engineering and Technical College at Talsande with its multidisciplinary courses, became Maharashtra state’s 4th private university in January 2021.
The campus is striving hard to fulfil the dreams of Dr. Sanjay Patil who held immense faith in achieving education for all. Keeping with the mission of the college to nurture a community of lifelong learners, it aspires to play an important role in sharing the traditional mode of education along with the modern needs of the contemporary society.
Located in the suburbs of Kolhapur, 22kms away, the Talsande campus was originally 205 acres of barren stretch purchased by President of D.Y. Patil Group, Dr. Sanjay Patil in 1989. It took the vision of the Group’s president and his endless efforts to convert an unproductive wasteland into a green belt.
