Edition1: COEP

College of Engineering, Pune is one of the oldest institutions in India. In its glorious existence of over past 152 years, it has produced more than 50,000 engineers who have contributed immensely to the industry both in India and abroad. College of Engineering, Pune (COEP) is one of the most prestigious engineering colleges in India. Established in 1854, it is the third oldest engineering college in Asia, after the College of Engineering, Guindy (1794) and IIT Roorkee (1847). It is located in Pune (formerly Poona), Maharashtra. The students and alumni of COEP are colloquially referred to as COEPians.In 2004, the institute was granted complete autonomy by the state government, and declared a center for excellence in technical education. The institute now is an autonomous engineering school with permanent affiliation to the University of Pune.The college's study model referred to in the early 50s as the 'Poona Model' is highly respected by the industry and public works. The institute contends that its autonomy now grants it greater flexibility in dynamically changing its syllabus to suit the changing needs of the industry.

Alumni Appeal
There are hundreds of alumni of this institution currently in the United States and all over the world. To bring these alumni together and enable them to interact with the alumni in India and to develop a network of these individuals towards establishing COEP as a premier engineering institute in India, a group of past alumni have founded and incorporated the COEP Alumni Association in the United States. The official name of this association is COEP Charitable Foundation. It has been registered in the State of California in Dec 2003 and has received the tax exemption from Federal as well as California Tax authorities.The main objectives of the COEP Charitable Foundation are:
Establish a strong network of COEP alumni in USA and around the world.
Promote the advancement of science and education at COEP
Ligher side of student life:
Modes of communication; It is said that COEP has all modes of transport running except air travel. NH4 divides the campus. There is a river for water transport and railway track runs adjacent.
Hostelites vs citilites: From ages there is a healthy competition between hostel residents and city resident in every field be it gathering, election, drama, acads, while each being envious of other . They say glass is always greener on other side.
Boat club: It’s the most happening katta. Entire college meets here on chai and snacks and backdrop of riverview. They say marriages are made in heaven but they need a place to meet and boat club is that chosen place.
PJs: If there is any competition of PJs, COEP is champion. Breaking a word into parts, and making a “koti’ is done most cleverly here.
Aarewah: if some team wins a trophy there is a chorus of arewaah, waah waah waah, waaaah…
