Higher education in India is undergoing a remarkable transformation. The All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) and University Grants Commission (UGC) has been emphasising on outcome-based education, rather than the traditional exam-centric educational system which was followed in our country for centuries. In outcome-based education, the real learning outcomes of students are measured in an objective manner mainly to ensure that our higher education system is more accountable and quality-oriented.
Sri Siddhartha Institute of Technology-SSIT ( A Constituent college of Sri Siddhartha Academy of Higher Education) attained the prestigious Deemed-to-be status from UGC in August 2009. Since then SSIT has revamped the curriculum and implemented major changes in the curriculum delivery to a very large extent. Now, the emphasis is on comprehensive continuous learning rather than rote and exam oriented learning. This results in students spending more time in the laboratories than in the classrooms. The submission of mini-projects for assessment has been made mandatory. This in turn helps the students in applying the theoretical concepts learnt by them.
We fully understand the vital importance of imparting life and communication skills to our students. It is mandatory for all the students in their third year of B.E programme to opt for the inter-disciplinary courses (Open Elective) offered by the SSIT.
We believe that the education received from our institution will translate into excellent career and job prospects for our students. At SSIT, we always work closely with varied industries, to fulfill the job aspirations of our students. In addition to excellent placement department, we closely collaborate with various industries at different levels. We encourage the industries in turn to play an active role as our partners in education.
Finally, ever since we became deemed-to-be university, we have made significant constructive changes to the traditional class curriculum to create stimulating learning environment for students.
