Sri Shakthi Institute of Engineering and Technology (SSIET) was instituted in the year 2006 by Dr.S.Thangavelu, a veteran professor at TNAU, with a vision to create one of the nation’s great engineering schools, recognized nationally & internationally for excellence in teaching, research and public service. Enhancing the Industry employability of the students is a primary focus at the institution. The college works with several organizations to offer programs that bridge the industry-institute gap.

Some of the organizations are Infosys, Oracle, CISCO, National Instruments, Cadence, Xilinx, WIPRO, MindTree, AMI, EMC , SIEMENS, Dassault Systèmes, IESA, NASSCOM, IEEE and ISTQB. Through these partnerships the college offer courses on the contemporary technologies such as Ruby-on-Rails, Andriod-IOS- application development, Software testing, Industrial Automation, E-CAD, E-Plan, Solidworks, CATIA etc.

They organize several flagship events to nurture Leadership and Innovation. Sri Shakthi India Leadership Summit (SSILS), IEEE sponsored International Conference on Computer Communication and Informatics (ICCCI), INSPIRA and Young Achievers Forum are some of the events that receive immense support from students. Eminent personalities from different walks of life grace the occasion. ‘chandrayan’ Dr.Anna Durai, Dr.Kiran Bedi, Rashmi Bansal, Chetan Bhagat, Phanindra shama (CEO, RedBus.in) are some of the guests who have inspired the students. The college also runs an online career mentorship program at the campus to allow students to network with their distinguished alumnus, foreign university professors, industry delegates and other achievers.

Based on the scores in the AMCAT 2012 conducted by Aspiring Minds, now an SHL company, SSIET was honoured with the National Employability Award 2013. This honour was given only to 45 institutions across INDIA and 5 institutions in Tamil Nadu. The TIMES Group of publications has recognized SSIET for Excellence in Education in the presence of the Governor of Tamil Nadu, along with elite institutes such as Great Lakes Institute of Management and SRM University. Recently, National Instruments recognized our Labview academy with the “Best Graphical System Design Laboratory 2013” award in the presence of their CEO & President, Dr.James Truchard.

The students are the biggest assets as they always achieve big. SSIET have even found corporate recruitments happening in their campus because of the student achievements in major competitions. Their students got into the top 100 rank list of the ACM ICPC programming contest, a contest that had only the IITs and the NITs in their rank list. At the Intel India Embedded Challenge Contest 2012, a student team from the institution was selected to be in the top 10 teams out of the 688 participating teams. “Blood finder”, an android application developed by student team of SSIET was launched successfully in the Google play. At NIYANTRA 2013 (a student project contest), out of the 250 teams that competed from across India, student of SSIET finished in the Top 3. In the DesignACE 2013 contest organized by Barry Wehmiller, the mechanical engineering student team of the college is currently shortlisted in the top 9 teams from amongst the 120 participating teams. Also, another mechanical engineering student has been shortlisted in the Virtual Baja competition conducted by SAE. Both the teams will compete in their respective finals shortly.

In the domain of recruitment, students of SSIET compete nowhere lesser. An apt example to illustrate this will be the following example. In a state-level placement drive organized by Cognizant Technology solutions in January 2013, a total of 52 students were selected from a pool of 3500 students, and 10 students were from SSIET!

Chairman Bytes:

Q: Why should companies hire from your campus?
A: We have been endorsed by Aspiring Minds, an SHL company, with the recognition that we produce employable engineers. I think there cannot be a better yardstick to measure. The Minimum Cut-off for a student to choose our institution for the courses based on Computer Science and Electronics is 185. A good intake will naturally ensure good output. We strive hard to impart the required contemporary technologies with the involvement of the industry and the fundamental skill-sets through our experienced faculty. This is a unique blend. For the batch of 2014, the highest salary offered to a student so far in an on-campus recruitment is 5.4 lakhs per annum. This speaks volumes about the capacity of the students and the alumni.

Q: What qualities and strengths can companies expect from students of your campus?

A: Students at campus are expected to exhibit:

  1. Loyal and affirmative attitude at the workplace.
  2. Fundamental conceptual understanding on the subjects.
  3. Good communication skills.

Q: What is your vision about employability enhancement in your college during the next five years?

A: The Focus is on becoming an autonomous institution at the earliest. A lot of companies are willing to work with us. With freedom to develop curriculum, I think this will be a big opportunity for the institution to focus on the employability quotient. The areas where we would like to focus are the imparting sound fundamental subject knowledge and effective communication skills. Though these may look simple, they require exceptional effort from our end.

Q: What is one key differentiator about your campus?

A: Our experienced faculty members.

All the best
