Mr. SYED MUNIR HODA

It gives me great pleasure in welcoming you to the website of Agni College Technology. Aristotle said “Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then is not an act, but a habit”. At ACT we are striving towards excellence through systematic hard work.

Our aim is to impart education with the understanding to use it to improve everyone’s life including our own. Join us to be part of nation building.
