The annual intake of engineering institutes in the country is massive but majority of graduating students struggle to find a good job. S Jaganmohan Reddy, Director of Sphoorthy Engineering College says, "The problem is not with the quantity but with the quality of students coming out." From his thoughts, it is evident that the buzzword of Sphoorthy Engineering College is 'Quality.' "The gap between industry and education can be filled if the institutions train their students well," he adds with complete authority to pronounce it. He, along with his vastly experienced team of faculty has ensured that from infrastructure and faculty to placements, the college stands on the top of the pyramid.
The emphasis on providing quality features has made Sphoorthy the most preferred institution for engineering aspirants as well as many MNC recruiters from Hyderabad. Top notch companies like IBM, Infosys, Wipro, Satyam Mahindra, TCS, Accenture, Genpact, ICICI Bank, HDFC Bank and many more visit the campus for placements. These companies offer not only placement opportunities to its students but also provide training through Campus Connect Programs in Communication Skills, Aptitude Training and Soft Skills training classes starting from first year.
For any student of Sphoorthy, the life inside the campus starts with a class that gives a clear-cut clarification of what they are going to do at the institute for the next four years. This helps students to set up their goals and it is important, as a journey undertaken without the knowledge of the destination is futile. "In the first year, apart from being taught the fundamentals, students are also given training to improve their personality through value education," says Jaganmohan Reddy. By preparing an intense training agenda that begins from the day one of studentï¿½s campus life, the institute has shown the difference between trained students and well-trained students.
The Management of Sphoorthy is a firm believer of the fact that engineering is a technical course designed for those students who are passionate about technological innovations and magic of science. The junior engineers of Sphoorthy will be ready to face the next facet of their learning process from the second year onwards, which is more concentrated on the technical aspects. To impart knowledge about the latest technologies and to convert tiring calculations to an enjoyable fun process, the institute has built several cutting edge labs. The activities inside those ultra modern labs will help students to adapt newer technologies faster than by reading textbooks or watching video lectures.
Along with that, full-fledged Research and Development Centre is another attraction of this campus. Students can sharpen their creative and innovative talents in the R&D Unit, which is headed by senior professors with industrial and research experience. Sometimes an R&D Unit alone cannot do wonders to the students. In this aspect, Sphoorthy is proud to have highly qualified faculty members with rich academic, industrial and research Experience. They have 21 senior professors with Ph.D., and 34 experienced faculty members pursuing Ph.D. The collective amount of faculty-experience is a relief for any parent, as they can rest easy, knowing that their children are in safe hands.
Fun filled Saturdays
At the campus, Saturday afternoons of students do not belong to the Professors. Sphoorthy changes its tone as Saturday arrives. The management has allotted Saturday evenings to students to conduct activities at their leisure. The institute has many activity clubs that are led by students and supported by faculties to make their Saturdays a lively one. They conduct various activities like sports, arts and womenï¿½s day programs and several others. "The events on Saturday afternoon will help our students wipeout all the stress and strain that they had picked up during the week days. As a result of this we get fresh students again on the Monday morning. This cycle has worked wonders on our students," says Jaganmohan Reddy, an active supporter to these events.
A notable fact about the student population is that approximately 60 percent of the students studying in the campus are Girls. The management is aware of this reality and gives them special considerations, which includes exclusive bus services and counseling by the Sphoorthy Womenï¿½s Chapter headed by Senior Women Faculty members. Moreover, the entire campus is monitored through CCTV cameras to provide better safety and security.
A quality education in secured environment is a basic need of every student. Sphoorthy has succeeded in providing exactly what is needed for students to do well at their studies. From the activities and achievements, it is clear that this institute is a hub that is capable of converting any quantity of inputs to a high quality output.
