Translation:
Leaving nothing in balance, let me explain to you that a person who combines dnynan (spiritual knowledge) together with vidnynan (professional knowledge); such a person need not know anything further Polymer Engineering Department was established in 1983 due to the visionary foresight of our Director, Prof. (Dr.) Vishwanath D. Karad. Polymer Engineering was unheard of at that time and there were very few institutes in the country offering an undergraduate Polymer Engineering course in the country. India was a backyard for manufacturing of plastic and rubber products and Mechanical Engineers were filling the gap due to shortage of trained professionals in Polymer Engineering. Thus, the mission back then was to fill in this gap. The department had a head-start over other institutes in this regard. During those times, emphasis was laid on building the very basic infrastructure in the department. The curriculum was designed by Late Prof. M. V. Joshi, the first Head of the Department, in consultation with eminent personalities like Dr. R. A. Mashalkar, Dr. V. M. Nadkarni.

The Polymer industry has grown in leaps and bounds in the past twenty years. Over the years, number of institutes offering this course has increased. Now, there is no dearth of trained professionals. The Polymer industry as a whole has undergone radical change. The manufacturing industry is well established now and the focus has shifted to new material and product development. Thus, need exists to train professionals who will be capable of carrying out research in niche areas of Polymer Science and Engineering hence our mission and vision now focus on excellence in education to create professionals competent to take up research.
