With the sublime objective of providing high-quality Technical Education enriched with fundamental Human Values, engineering colleges across the length and breadth of our country have started on an endless race of outperforming on a day-to-day basis. Where most of the colleges tend to make tall claims, only few manage to deliver educational excellence with the right amount of technical brilliance needed by today’s engineers. Thus, coming out as one such renowned engineering brand, that has a heritage of academic, practical, co-curricular and extra-curricular activities – Sreenidhi Institute of Science and Technology (SNIST) was established under the Chairman – Dr. K. T. Mahhe, an extraordinary educationist, a pragmatic leader, and a dynamic entrepreneur with rich experience in Academics and Industry.
Empowering Technical Knowledge and All-Rounded Growth
Based out of Domalguda area of Hyderabad, Sreenidhi Institute of Science and Technology is synonymous to genuine commitment and dedicated leadership. With a variety of facilities on the campus including, state-of-the-art labs with sophisticated equipment, libraries, Wi-Fi enabled campus, knowledge center, lavish AC auditoriums, smart classrooms, Hostels with premium facilities and many more, give students a truly fulfilling and enriching experience.
Also, with highly qualified faculty members heading the parade of the tech institute, a flexible and dynamic curriculum is followed at Sreenidhi Institute of Science and Technology, which consists of exciting research projects, and global connections. The totally inclusive environment helps students participate in a wide range of academic, practical, co-curricular, extra-curricular programs to enable them to gain the required exposure to a wide variety of social, cultural, and intellectual opportunities and challenges. “Such interesting learning experiences have transformed our students into multi-skilled and multi-tasking personalities, ensuring success in their lives and careers”, states – Dr. Poreddy Narasimha Reddy, the Executive Director of SNIST.
Redefining engineering education
Growing effortlessly under the Sreenidhi Educational Group, Sreenidhi Institute of Science and Technology strives to achieve academic excellence through a futuristic outlook in a well-disciplined environment by showing tremendous commitment in all areas of operations. Be it while involving people with academic expertise and industrial knowledge at all levels or up-gradation of infrastructure and facilities from time to time, SNIST is ever-ready for change.
By understanding how important R & D is to the field of engineering, there is a dedicated department setup on the campus, where all the faculty members appointed are Ph.D. Degree holders themselves. Adding a point on the aspect of R & D importance at Sreenidhi Institute of Science and Technology, Dr. Poreddy stated – “Progressive managements such as ours are encouraging the faculty by providing funds in the budgets for conducting in-house R&D activity by the faculty and the students”. Through the conversation with the Executive Director, we also learnt that at SNIST the faculty is encouraged to publish papers in International journals which are recognized by rating agencies such as Scopus, Web of Science, Thomson Routers, etc. and also to present papers in prestigious national and international conferences. Additionally, there is also a scheme present at Sreenidhi Institute of Science and Technology where financial incentives for publication of papers in indexed journals to the tune of Rs. 10,000 per paper.
Furthermore, in a time where there is constant criticism from the industry that the students are not having knowledge in the application of theory they learnt. In order to overcome this effectively, the faculty members of Sreenidhi Institute of Science and Technology are requested to search for various applications of the theory they are teaching unit-wise, so that the students can relate the theory with practice. Not only are the students encouraged to outdo themselves in the academic direction every time, but they are also made to get prepared towards assured placement opportunities, by preaching students to build strong interpersonal relations via group activities such as working in a group and leading a team to achieve the goals set by the team.
The college also encourages various activities to be taken up by students such as formation of various technical, managerial, literary, cultural, sports and games committees. Each committee sets a goal for itself and their tasks are well cut out to plan and execute the various activities such as competitions internally and national level contests. This is developing a lot of confidence in the students leading to better placements and to choose their own professional career.
Shaping leaders today, towards a better tomorrow
As it is evident by now, the industry wants graduates who are industry ready. Also, it is necessary on the part of teachers and the institution to do their best in this regard. Fortunately, all thanks to Sreenidhi Institute of Science and Technology being an autonomous institute, helps towards having full freedom for curriculum development which is required for contemporary skills in sync with the industry.
SNIST is also a hotspot of industry-academia connections, and as a result of this the tech hub has signed MoUs with universities across the world, among which – Illinois Institute of Technology, USA, Ohio State University, Columbus, USA, University of Bridgeport, USA, University of Detroit Mercy, USA, University of Abertay Dundee, UK, University of Western Sydney, Australia, are a few of them.
All in all, summing up the whole conversation, Dr. Poreddy exclaimed – “The college has a progressive management and dedicated faculty which helped us so far to be in the top three engineering colleges in self-financing category in the State of Telangana”. Also, a number of agencies have rated the institution in the top 1% of technical institutions in India, for its continuous process of improvement and its dedicated aim towards excelling at every stage. Lastly, with a fully committed legacy of change, Sreenidhi Institute of Science and Technology strives rigorously to provide wholesome education for balanced growth to the students, all geared up to set milestones in its quest to achieve the extraordinary.
