How to get to the venue
The College of Engineering, Pune (also known as COEP or just "Engineering College") is located very close to other landmarks such as Pune Station, Sancheti Flyover, and the RTO. The Mechanical Dept. is on the same side as the Boat Club (where our informal weekend sessions take place). It is on the opposite side of the Seminar Hall where last month's open was held.
