Progressive Education Society was established in year 1934 by an eminent educationist Prof. S. R. Kanitkar and is one of the well known educational societies for its academic excellence.
This prime society successfully runs various institutes right from kindergarten level to Post Graduation level. He was assisted by young and dedicated teachers of proven excellence as Shri V. T. Tatke, Shri G. G. Damle and Shri Koparkar etc. Late Shri S. R. Kanitkar was of great inspiration to the people who joined hands with him in implementing the idea of starting a new high school in Pune city. It was an uphill task in those days. Late Shri S. R. Kanitkar made his colleagues work with his optimism. Late Shri S. R. Kanitkar was a strict disciplinarian and hardly ever liked any laxity in work. His teaching was exemplary. In true sense, the activities of this society have always been Progressive and Modern. The ambitious plan of Modern College of Engineering was initiated in the academic year 1999-2000.
