There has always been a quest to explore the world beyond this planet. There are thousands of unanswered questions regarding the universe. As a curiosity to explore universe and answer these unending list of questions we came up with an idea to form Astronomy Club.
The key objective of this club is to motivate the students and to understand the basic concepts related to astronomy and astrophysics. Astronomy club was formed and inaugurated on 12th March 2018 and under the guidance of Dr. Vishwajeet Khot (Assistant professor, Engineering Physics) and Mr. Pravin Gorde (Assistant professor, Engineering Civil). We would like to thank campus director Col. S.K Joshi and Principal Dr. (Mrs.) A.V. Patil for their support and guideline in foundation of the club.
Recently the club got its identity and emerged with a name ‘DHRUVA’, with a philosophy related to ancient Indian history of star “Dhruva” who guides mankind in night to find right path.
