The Big Bang (the beginning)

One sunny morning in October 2005, urge to catch up with old pals filled the mind of Shashikant Morey (fondly known as Raghu Morey) of Production 87 batch. He shot emails to classmates in touch and the word spread. The effect was a big bang! On 20th Jan 06 he saw 24 pals out a class of 36, from far & wide, India & Abroad, converge at the college. The Seed had been sown! The emotions that flowed at the event reconfirmed the undiminished bonding between the alumnus and the institution and showed the potential of building a platform for COETians of all branches & batches. The seed has grown into COETA alumni association.

The association, today is full fledged registered organization with an active membership, enthusiastic workforce with energetic ideas and participation and many events and contributions to its credit.
