SIT Campus- A Wellspring of Learning
College is a time brimming with learning and fun. Apart from an enriching academic experience taking part in non-academic cultural activities are vital for students to build diverse aspects of their personality. Extra-curricular activities add immense value to your personality and help you develop soft skills that will be helpful for a lifetime. Such social and interpersonal skills are highly valuable from the perspective of employability in today’s times. These activities also give you the chance to interact with peers outside of your class and learn from diverse perspectives and personalities. Colleges that recognize the merit of extracurriculars in a student’s life produce excellent, well-groomed, and holistically developed individuals. At SIT we strive to achieve this. Our infrastructure is aligned to enabling students to partake in all activities they desire to, we provide high-quality multimedia rooms, labs with the latest software for CAD/CAM, and simulation. The library at SIT is an oasis for learning where students can use the latest academic resources. Various conferences, workshops, and talks are held in our auditoriums and seminar halls that support classroom learning.
There is always something interesting happening at the SIT campus. Our students actively organize and participate in various activities of student-led clubs and societies. Clubs for music, dance, photography, fine arts, innovation and creativity, etc. have been formed to ensure the personality development of students.Mechanical Engineering Students Association (MESA), Entrepreneurship Promotion and Innovation Cell (EPIC), Google Club run by the Computer Science and Information Technology students and IEEE (Electronics and Communication Department) are a few of the best-loved clubs among students. These clubs are aimed at sharpening the technical and literary skills of students. Owing to the interest and enthusiasm developed by such clubs, our students have formed the ‘Wrench Wielders Racing team’ which is SIT’s very own Formula Racing Team. This team secured 7th place out of 132 teams in the Indian Karting Championship edition 3.
Another significant laurel earned by our students from the Entrepreneurship Promotion and Innovation Cell (EPIC) was the 1st prize in the National E-Cell Warfare, 2018.
Such events make our institute well-suited for all-around, holistic development while providing an enriched educational experience for the students.
SIT is one of the few chosen colleges in India, which has student clubs created by Google, as a part of the Google Student Ambassador (GSA) program. Ksheetij Saini, a B.Tech student, was the Google Student Ambassador for 2014-15 and shares his experience to have been amazing, insightful, fun and enjoyable where he got to learn various skills, ranging from marketing, sponsorship, tech, budgeting etc. and had also worked with the Google Developer Group and the Google Business Group, to help them in their endeavors.
We take care to make our students’ conscientious human beings, along with great engineers. V@rSITy-care is the social awareness club of SIT, that inaugurated in 2014 to provide a platform to students who would use classroom teachings to help the society directly. Through the activities conducted by this club, qualities of empathy, compassion and a sense of social responsibility are fostered in budding engineers. From sharing their own stories to interacting with the orphan kids to giving them career guidance, from spreading awareness about conserving natural resources and organizing cleanliness (Swatchh Bharat Abhiyan) to running blood donation drives; the club is dedicated to spreading social awareness as a part of the club’s social framework.
The delightful weather of Pune, separate and spacious hostels for boys and girls, multi-cuisine on-campus food courts, frequent city-transport, and other facilities ensure that students feel secure and well-cared for during their time at SIT.
