About Sophia Polytechnic
Dr. (Sr.) Anila Verghese
SOPHIA POLYTECHNIC was founded in 1970.
It now comprises two institutes:
1. SOPHIA SHREE B. K. SOMANI MEMORIAL POLYTECHNIC (Founded in 1970)
2. SOPHIA SMT. MANORAMA DEVI SOMANI COLLEGE (Started in 2009)
Sophia Polytechnic is predominantly a women’s polytechnic. However, male students are admitted to the courses of the HAFT Department as well as in the SCM course.
From its inception in 1970, Sophia Polytechnic has been committed to women’s education, which is perceived to be the means for both personal and societal transformation. It stands for an education that is holistic and which provides for all-round growth. The Management is committed to creating an atmosphere in which the zest for learning thrives and students are trained not only to be professionals but also to be persons of convictions and values. The programmes are student-centred, providing ample opportunity for the development of professional skills, self-assurance and confidence. Through the ‘Sophia Cooverji Hormusji Programme in Ethics and Spirituality’, Sophia Polytechnic provides the opportunity for students to focus on values, ethical living and concern for the underprivileged.
We are fortunate in having a highly qualified and motivated teaching faculty and dedicated non-teaching and support staff. Located within a beautiful verdant campus, the Polytechnic has excellent infrastructural facilities.
