Sinhgad Institute of Technology, Lonavala


Although Sinhgad Institute of Technology is far from any metropolitan city (its located in Lonavala on the Mumbai-Pune expres

sway), the location is picturesque. Climate is brilliant throughout the year. Accessibility doesn't really matter as you've gotta stay in the hostel.


It's that magnificent structure that you see atop the ghats when Lonavala is nearing on your way from Mumbai to Pune or vice-versa. The infrastructure of Sinhgad Institute of Technology (SIT) is very good. Its cricket playground is well known all round Maharashtra. The college offers Wi-Fi connectivity in the whole campus and all the academic facilities are very well taken care of.


The students say that the principal is very nice, but complain about the other professors, who they claim do not speak any English.


Sinhgad Institute of Technology (SIT), Lonavala follows a very strict attendance system. Students are expected to maintain 75% attendance, and they are often detained if it falls below 60%.


The crowd is ‘cooperative’, very friendly, but nothing out of the world.


Bushi dam is a common (and beautiful) hangout, but its also rather expensive- takes Rs. 500 by rick! Bamboo house and RK are two more hangouts. Alcohol is easily available, and another place students like hanging out is Beer Bridge.


There are two canteens in the campus, but ONLY the samosa is worth eating. You can also find ‘Roll Centre’ inside the campus itself.


Sinhgad Institute of Technology (SIT), Lonavala hosts its technical fest called Xenos in September. The Cultural festival, Surbhi, is held in January.


Placements for E&TC, Comps & IT are quite good. However, placements for Mechanical students aren’t up to the mark. Infosys, Accenture, CapGemini, Cognizant and IBM are major recruiters.
