Fr. C. Rodrigues Institute of Technology was established in 1994 as an extension of the pioneering efforts of the Agnel Ashram fathers in the arena of Technical Education with the relentless pursuit of excellence as its guiding force. Fr.CRIT in a short span of time established itself as a leading Engineering college in Mumbai, bagging at least one university 1st rank every year starting with its first graduating batch.
It has also made its mark in sports, extra-curricular and co-curricular activities. In recognition of the fact that it imparts high quality value-based technical education, made possible by its dedicated staff and extensive facilities, the Government of Maharashtra awarded Fr.C.R.I.T. an A grade in its first assessment. Similarly of the eligible four branches that had applied were awarded accreditation by the National Board of Accreditation.
