About Symbiosis


Symbiosis was established in 1971 to cater to the needs of foreign students studying in Pune, by Prof. Dr. S. B. Mujumdar, who was the then Head of Department of Biology at Fergusson College, Pune. He started 'Symbiosis International Cultural Centre' and conducted various activities for Indian and foreign students. 'Symbiosis' provided them opportunities to study together, work together, perform together and also enjoy their free time exchanging information about the cultures, values, traditions, festivals, ideas etc. of their respective countries. Over the years he observed that education is the best medium to bring together Indian and foreign students. He established institutes based on need of the society.
In recognition of its academic excellence, the Ministry of HRD, Government of India, has conferred on Symbiosis the 'Deemed University' status, in 2002.
Symbiosis has campuses at Pune, Nashik and Kolhapur in Maharashtra. The campuses outside Maharashtra are at NOIDA, Bangalore and Hyderabad.
