MMP used to be an autonomous institute empowered to provide sound technical skills based on the practical knowledge to prepare the students to meet the challenges of the fast changing world. The need of our country is to provide with such an education and training to the up coming generation that could foster with creativity in the cross section of lives. MMP promises for continuous striving to fulfill the need of the society by offering programs that provides life skills to the youths of the nation to become self-dependent.
