Why Orchid?

The N K Orchid College of Engineering & Technology located at Solapur It was started by Pradnya Niketan Education Society. P.N.E.S has been formed by a group of committed educationists.

What in name?

The N K Orchid College of Engineering & Technology gets its name from the orchid flower. Orchids were the first flowering plants to evolve around 120 million years ago, when the mighty dinosaurs roamed the earth.


The dinosaurs became extinct; so did many species of plants and animals. But the orchid family survived, adapted and expanded.  
Orchids are among the most successful and adaptable family of plants. They are often cited as great examples of peaceful and mutually beneficial co-existence in nature. Orchids were here long before humans. The orchid has survived the different
stages of evolution by adapting to the changing climate, waiting for the right time & opportunities to bloom.
Our College recognizes the fact that all students have potential, like Orchids. They are waiting to be unfolded and discovered.
When given an appropriate, rich, supportive and nourishing environment, students can blossom and evolve as healthy human beings as beautiful and exquisite as The Orchid Flower.
