Dean's Message

T.V. Gopal

Welcome to the College of Engineering and Technology (CET), SRM Institute of Science & Technology (SRMIST), Chennai, India. Situated in sprawling campuses in Kattankulathur, Ramapuram, Vadapalani (Ramapuram-Part) and Ghaziabad with more than three decades of service to the student community, it is the flagship college of the Institute. We are truly a vibrant community where aspiring students prepare themselves to be responsible leaders and lifelong learners through rigorous engineering education. With students in India seeking more inter-disciplinary programs and flexibility in course curriculum, SRM IST shifted the focus on to the manner the programs are offered, and the curriculum is designed.

The programme and curriculum are designed in such a manner that the student has the freedom to decide the pathway to career progression. A student who seeks an admission into the College of Engineering and Technology shall have an option to pursue a Major OR Major with Specialization OR Major with a Minor certification.

This gives the freedom for students to design their degree program, choose their course curriculum and decide their future career. This, with active learning and industry internship, will make our program a real 'Inter-Disciplinary Experiential Active Learning' (IDEAL).

Our Engineering programmes provide a vibrant learning environment and ample opportunities for leadership by developing their skill sets required for their career growth. Our strengths are the top-class faculty members who take up scientific challenges through their research work and transfer their knowledge gained through research experience to the students.

Our strong connections with industry ensure there is no latency between the industry expectations and the curriculum offering. The international collaborations, Semester Abroad Programme, Faculty Abroad Programme, Faculty Industry Immersion Programmes, Industry supported laboratories and degree programmes do make education at SRM the best in the league.

The SRM Innovation and Incubation Centre and SRM Innovation and Design Centre aims to create an ecosystem of innovation and entrepreneurship to create global leaders. This has resulted in the centre hosting 10 start-ups conceived by student and alumni along with another 25 teams in the pre-incubation stage.

We are proud to have a strong alumni base. Our alumni have been continuously contributing to the Faculty in providing ample opportunities for our students to enrich their career development and acquire experiential learning exposures. 

I am honoured to be part of a team of people who are committed, compassionate and team leaders, and keep SRM flag flying high.
