SCMS Pune is home to more than 1000 individuals hailing from different parts of the country, who now live under the same roof. The years we spend here lays the parapet for what we become tomorrow. After we say goodbye to the place where our most memorable experiences have been, the place that has shaped us, the place which we loved or even hated, at the end of the day what remains are the memories.
The alumni, our flag bearers, are the shine of our institute, and we want you to come back. Come back to your beloved institute, revel in its glory, about your past, and reminisce about your time in it. And we are sure the students need your guidance too.
