Late Sir Cusrow Wadia
(11th February 1869 - 3rd October 1950)

Sir Cusrow Wadia was a Mill Owner and Philanthropist from Bombay. He was the benefactor and first President of the Modern Education Society, Pune, founded on 15th February 1932. He was the pioneer to foresee the importance of starting the first "Private Polytechnic" in Western India."

He gave handsome donations to help build our Institute which proudly and rightly bears his name. He was known to be so liberal that he was known as the "Chronic Philanthropist". He could visualize the "Atomic Age" and the importance of Electronics in Industries. He was so much interested in the welfare of its students that he used to invite and bring dignitaries to visit the institute to meet and talk to them. Sir Cusrow Wadia occupied a place of honour, among contemporary industrialists in India. We are truly fortunate that such a wonderful personality was at the helm of this Institute and nursed it during its formative years. His "Life Sketch" is a constant source of inspiration to the present students and staff of the Institute."
