“We cannot always build the future for our youth, but we can build our youth for the future.” These words by Franklin D. Roosevelt perfectly describe our aim at D.Y Patil College of Engineering and Technology, Kolhapur. Beyond providing a sound education, we wish to provide our students a holistic learning experience for life. Our aim is to teach students to LEARN, not just STUDY. Hence, we strive to travel beyond the boundaries of mere books. We have realized that the future is abstract and unknown but the youth in our hands are real and can be molded.
Dear students, “You are the nation-builders. You are the movers of technology. You are the agents of change.” It is our fervent hope that the years that you spend in DY Patil College of Engg would enable you to equip with leadership and managerial skills. The knowledge that you will gain, the fine qualities that you will imbibe and the technical skills that you will learn to apply will be your major contribution to your parents, to society, and to the nation.
We invest our trust on you. You are our safe source and we bank all our efforts on you. We create not the future instead we craft you for the future. There are strong challenges to great efforts but, always remember, great effort bears the sweet fruit of success. We want you to taste the fruit of success once and for the rest of your life, you will never rest.
-Dr Sanjay D.Patil
