Ferguson College, Pune made me a competent IT professional with reliable experience in the practical aspects of programming languages. My bachelor's degree college did not have the same faculties or staff to teach me as it was present in the Ferguson College. It is NAAC grade A certified and was a deciding factor when I applied for the M.Sc course. The admission procedure was fairly simple with no excessive demands about multiple screening interviews or document verification. It is a great place to study and prepare yourself for a career that will continue to evolve as you mature in the industry.Read Full Review
How many colleges in India have a road named after them. Well, I can proudly say that my college enjoys that luxury. Our college was one of the first premier institutes started by Britishers. Our college started way back in 1880 and in 1891 the college shifted to the current location of F.C. Road. The college campus is spread across 60 acres and is certainly one of the biggest colleges in terms of area in Pune. The college is named after Sir James Fergusson who was the first patron of DES (Deccan Education Society). The college today has a history of over 130 years and has given the country some of it’s most sought after patriots, philosophers, poets, thinkers, teachers, writers, scientists, social workers, entrepreneurs, industrialists, administrators, defense officers, and researchers. In a nutshell, all basked of life has taken a walk at the sun of Fergusson College. Students of Fergusson College are also referred to as Fergussonian. The reason why Pune is called the Cambridge of the East is our college. May sound like, I am boasting way too much but that’s true. Pune was one of the first colleges that made foreigners come to India and enroll in Fergusson College. Thus far, students from 58 countries have enrolled in Fergusson College which I believe is a record.
The college was established when Indians hardly had any inclination towards higher education. From then till date, the college has made people come to Pune and enroll in this college. The college only offers science and arts streams and from junior college to post-graduation, various courses of both streams are available in the college. I joined this college for M.Sc in microbiology and can proudly say that it can’t get bigger than this. Not just the history but the main building, the Bai Jerabai Wadia Library, the N. M. Wadia Amphitheatre, and the sports ground made me fall in love with this college right from the word go.Read Full Review
