We Are Applied Engineering
  • International School of Engineering was launched with an aim to transform the applied engineering education space in India. Our current focus area is Big Data Analytics / Data Science and we plan to replicate the quality, success and global recognition our Analytics programs have achieved with similar high-end areas in all engineering disciplines in the years to come.
World-class mentors
  • Our mentors have Ph.D.s from top global universities and decades of work experience in industry globally, building products and providing cutting-edge solutions to clients. But more than bringing this real-world experience to the classroom, they bring unbounded passion and the ability to simplify even the most complex topics.
Cutting-edge programs
  • INSOFE's Certificate Program in Engineering Excellence (CPEE) has been ranked by CIO.com - a very authoritative IT magazine - among the best such certificate programs globally, alongside Columbia and Standford universities.
Our Vision
To be the BEST PLACE in the WORLD for students and working professionals to learn APPLIED ENGINEERING.
Our Mission
To build a Stanford in India that will graduate engineers not by numbers but by quality - quality that the industry desperately seeks but is unable to find.
