What Student say about us

The practical knowledge gained from attending the event is really valuable and is generally not possible in the Academic programme of our Engineering as I've seen in my 2 years of college. I can proudly say now that I've built a vehicle of my own and now there is a sense of satisfaction as I can say that I have achieved something in my field apart from just acquiring the theoretical knowledge.

I had always dreamt of making a car or a bike but never really could do anything, this is the first time when I actually got to work on building a car of my own. It's just out of the world experience for me, truly amazing.

The best thing was when the engine came to life, felt so great and I find it tough to put it in words. Got to work in a really hardworking team and learn some really valuable things related to my professional field and at personal level as well.

We got to not just witness but also work at such a high scale which is not possible in classroom academics. The feeling of seeing the car, made by your time-effort-energy, run on the grounds is unmatchable. An amazing learning experience.

The whole programme was thoroughly enjoyable, you got to learn a lot from every bit of it and I'm sure all the knowledge is going to be really crucial in my career ahead.

26-03-20198-Day Internship in MIT-WPU, Pune, 2019

I had a very unique and different experience in the programme, learning with the best minds of different cities/colleges of the country. The exposure I got here is a 'Must-Have' for every student who is enthusiastic enough to build his/her career in Automotive Industry.

Jui Kulkarni

We got to build our own car, the best hands on experience one can ever get in such a lomited period Workshop, it's the best feeling ever to drive the car built by your own efforts and sweat.

Jai Kishan Trivedi

The teaching of Elite Techno Groups is very structured, all trainers are very knowledgable and credible. This is the only event that gave me the practical exposure otherwise all other Workshops that I attended were mostly Theoretical and so my experience here was incredible.
