The buzzword the college uses is holistic development. It ensures that all its students at the end of their studies are ready to face the industry head on. When the courses are about to begin all the students are taken to an outbound location where they are trained to develop team building, organizational and leadership qualities and gain confidence. To strengthen their students physically SREC conducts a variety of outdoor sports and has created two trophies like SNR Chinnasamy Naidu Trophy and S.N. Rangasamy Naidu Rolling trophy.
Every year the board of studies at SREC consisting of various members from the industry, academic institutions, research establishments and alumni working in leading positions decide on the new electives being offered by the college. Based on the co-create and co-teach model, new electives are created by the institute and board which give the students an opportunity to enhance their specialization and knowledge. The industry people will further help in the formation of contents, provide the relevant training to the faculty and even take a few sessions with the students.
The institute has state of the art facilities for all the courses which will help students and faculty members to gain more practical knowledge whether they are in the classroom or doing research in the lab. To encourage students to take up real life projects, SREC has set up a few facilities to carry out interactions with the industry. The library has more than 70,000 volumes of books and a host of digital contents and are accessible to students and faculty members even after college hours.
The faculty members at SREC have a rich experience. This fact combined with an excellent retention rate has enabled the faculty members to really make a difference in the learning process and enhance the students learning experiences. Out of the 300 faculty members, the institute has more than 56 PhD holders and about 100 faculty members are currently pursuing their PhD studies. A unique fact about the faculty members at SREC is that they also act as mentors to the students and provide assistance in any way possible which will lighten the pressure on the students.
As SREC has signed MoUs with many foreign universities, the institute sends few of their faculty members for exchange programs. This in turn helps them improve their knowledge which they can pass on to the students on return.
