Besides the regular course curriculum, students undertake multiple projects work; attend guest lectures on different functional areas. Students’ exposure to the knowledge capital through seminars in various disciplines, panel discussion on various themes, MDPs, Club activities, workshops, research, institute social responsibility, annual inter-institute event (SYNERGY), HR-meet, project presentation, national and international industrial visits, recreational activities etc. is a regular feature of the Institute.

It has been our endeavour to provide holistic education by moulding the total personality of the student and foster in young minds love for his/her fellowmen to be a good citizen and an able member of the Society. The Institute has strong alumni-academia interface through regular interactions and placement related activities. Excellent placement assistance is provided to the students by SFIMAR corporate relations and placement cell.
