K. J. Somaiya College Of Science And Commerce
Vidya Vihar East, Mumbai, Maharashtra 400077
In just five decades it has grown into a large educational complex with 34 institutions catering to diverse fields of education such as Humanities, Engineering, Education, Medicine, Management, Pure Sciences and Mass Communication, with more than 39000+ Students and 3000+ Faculties and staff on a throbbing 65 acre campus!
The Somaiya Vidyavihar Complex was founded in 1959 by late Shri K.J. Somaiya (1902-1999). Endowed with a sharp business acumen, a balanced perspective and a social bent of mind, Karamshibhai set up the Somaiya Trust in 1953 for furthering his dream of shaping young minds through quality education.
For this purpose he bought a large area of land at Ghatkopar, then considered to be distant, meagrely populated.
Somaiya Vidyavihar is an educational trust that has built educational institutions in Mumbai, Rural Maharashtra and Karnataka, and undertakes several educational initiatives for the benefit of the Community using education as means of development.
Somaiya Vidyavihar encompasses 34 institutions, with more than 39,000 students and 1,500 faculty. Its main campus is in Mumbai, but Somaiya Vidyavihar also operates six schools in rural India. It was founded by Padma Bhushan Karamshi Jethabhai Somaiya in 1959, to provide quality holistic education.
Somaiya Vidyavihar has always been a place with a purpose - making a positive difference in the quality of life of its students and the community. It is known as much for its Science, Technology, Engineering, Management, Social Sciences and Commerce programs, as for its programs for academic studies in various faiths and cultures of India.
