From the Chancellor


“Students today are competing in a rapidly changing world. Simply covering
the curriculum will not do. At SRM University we equip our graduates with
both a first-rate education and the necessary practical skills to ensure that
they stand out best in today’s world.”

Mr. T. R. Pachamuthu

04 05
A university is born
A dream brought to reality by a life dedicated to education. The founding chairman
of the SRM group, Mr. T.R. Pachamuthu, is first and foremost a teacher. He built an
environment, which fosters growth, learning and self-knowledge. We can trace our roots
back to 1968, when he first started the Florence Nightingale primary school. This school
educates young boys and girls to this day and forms the cornerstone of the SRM group
of educational institutions. That same year the chancellor formed the Valliammai Society
in honor of his mother, Mrs. R. Valliammai.

Path of progress
In 1985, the SRM group opened SRM Engineering College in Kattankulathur. A measure
of its success is the short span in which the organization grew and over the next few
years numerous SRM centers of learning materialized. A clear indication of the progress
made by the organization came in the year 2002, when SRM College of Dentistry was
awarded the status of deemed university by the Ministry of Human Resources and
Development, India. The next year, engineering and later the medical and para-medical
colleges of the group were brought under the ambit of SRM Deemed University. The
other colleges followed suit in the subsequent years.

The crowning moment


SRM attained the status of a full-fledged university, under section 3 of the UGC Act
1956. An upgraded syllabus and international teaching methods, designed by SRM’s
International Advisory Board (IAB), could be put into practice.

And the saga is just beginning. Whether it’s building a 16-storey IT park or acquiring
teaching models from MIT of USA, it’s all happening right here, at SRM University.

A world where knowledge is key
Information is the bloodline of the future. It lies at the core of research and forms the mainstay of learning. Besides the vast central library, which has
a wealth of information on a myriad of subjects, each department has its own library with books, periodicals, journals and back issues. So you will
never be at a loss for references.

Libraries & digital access


Four stories, 1,50,000 sq.ft. and nearly 1,00,000 volumes, everything about the university’s Central Library is vast. Besides the large number of
books, encyclopedias and reference material on a variety of topics, the library also subscribes to nearly 500 national and international journals and

Learn as students do worldwide
The curriculum at SRM University is constantly evolving. The syllabus is kept in tune with industry developments in India and across the
world. The Corporate Advisory Board and International Advisory Board regularly review the curriculum and the management is quick to
incorporate recommendations by expert panels. This dynamism is reflected in the curriculum’s flexibility.

Understanding the credit based system


The flexible credit based system of the university allows students to choose the elective courses of their preference. Credits are allotted
per course and students can combine any variation of electives for the year. This helps them to specialize in the areas of their interests
and chart the course of their future.

Active learning methodology


This upside down model of study challenges students; making them think for themselves. The Active Learning methodology is an
internationally accepted learning model and is practiced at SRM University. The School of Mechanical Engineering with the help of
Dr. Rohan Abeyaratne and Dr. Ely Sachs of MIT of USA created this platform. MIT has carried out an extensive study in developing
necessary kits for the students to learn the fundamentals through the discovery route. Some of the engineering principles that can be
discovered through these kits are: Characteristics of Fluid Flows, Stress-Strain Relations, Thermodynamically Coupled Gaseous Systems,
and First Order Rotational System. SRM University too has developed kits that can help students discern the likes of Lami’s theorem,
Fourier law, Four-bar mechanism, Friction and Pneumatic speed circuit amongst others.

In the hands of experts


Cutting edge learning methods and aids are incorporated in the curriculum. This is mainly because SRM University gives priority to the
feedback received from industry leaders, eminent academicians as well as our own students and faculty. Not only that, the curriculum is
guided by research experts from the centers of excellence.

Industry institute interaction


Industry institute interaction has a great bearing on the engineering curriculum besides giving our students valuable exposure to
industrial atmosphere and contributing to their subsequent placement as high value graduates. This interaction is a two way process.
The university offers employees of industries, tailor-made continuing education programs in engineering that help them to upgrade their
knowledge level.

An On-site Education Development Programme (OEDP) agreement was signed with NOKIA for awarding B. Tech. (ECE),
B. Tech. (Mechatronics) for their employees holding diploma.
M/s. Heritage Property Private Limited, Chennai is providing financial assistance of Rs. 3 Lakhs for UK-India Education and Research
Initiative (UKIERI) funding for a Delivery-full award in M. Tech. (Sustainable concrete) under collaborative programme by School of Civil
Engineering, SRM University with University of Dundee, Scotland, UK.
Cognizant Technology Solutions (CTS), Chennai signed a MoU for conducting symposiums, workshops, faculty training, visiting faculty
scheme, and to conduct “EVOLVE” workshop to enhance employability skills of the students.

On the other hand, companies like Infosys, Wipro and Cognizant offer our students training programs, currently available during their
fourth year, which makes them industry ready and reduces their learning curve after recruitment.

The world speaks our language
The world is fast changing and our students need to be future ready. They need to stay on top of the latest developments
as they unfold, and contribute to the international community. With this in mind, the university has formed numerous
agreements with institutions around the world.

International education
The university has collaborated extensively with universities abroad, the result of which is the unique Active Learning model
being used by the engineering students to boost their learning curve. SRM University’s Memorandum of Understanding
with Queen’s University of Canada involves staff and student exchange and twinning academic programs in population
and public health. Our Memos of Understanding with the University of Wisconsin and the Health University of the Czech
Republic further enhance opportunities for our medical college students.

Global symposia
International conferences and symposia offer even more opportunities for students and faculty to keep up with global
advances in science. SRM University participants actively take part by presenting their research findings. Many have
received awards for their work.

One of a kind International Advisory Board


Industry leaders and eminent academicians from around the world serve on SRM’s International Advisory Board (IAB),
which fosters joint research and study abroad. With representatives from such institutions as IBM, M.I.T., and Carnegie
Mellon, you can be sure that the SRM University reaps vast benefits that are there to see.

Knowledge has no borders
The pursuit of knowledge doesn’t stop at the borders of any country. Through its links with foreign universities,
SRM University sponsors advanced learning for its most eager students. These students experience an international
education, a different culture and in the process raise their calibre to be at par with the world’s best.

Semester Abroad Program


In a move that’s a first of its kind, the university has initiated a semester abroad program (SAP). A 100 meritorious
students have been given the opportunity of a lifetime to spend a semester at some of the best universities around
the world including Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Carnegie Mellon, Northeastern University, UC Davis,
SUNNY Buffalo, University of Wisconsin, Lille Catholic University, University of Western Australia and many others.
This priceless exposure to a whole new sphere of learning brightens their job prospects in India and abroad and,
more importantly, creates graduates who are future ready.

SRM has a unique arrangement with Unviersity of Wisconsin, Milwaukee to transfer students at the end of 3rd
year for BS and MS program at Unviersity of Wisconsin, Milwaukee, in just two years. SRM also has a dual degree
program with university of Warwick in the area of Plant Biotechnology.

Extending a humanitarian touch
Saving lives comes naturally for those belonging to the SRM medical corps. Both the Ramapuram and the Kattankulathur
campus possess some outstanding medical facilities manned by expert medical personnel. They are at hand to treat
maladies ranging from minor injuries to trauma and have a host of specialized departments linked to the medical college.
So as a student you will be exposed to some of the best healthcare training you can receive.

SRM Medical College Hospital, Kattankulathur


This 750-bed hospital houses a wide spectrum of medical specialties and subspecialties. The staff tends to 1,000
patients daily. Employees from such corporates as Carborundum Universal, TATA and Johnson Controls Automotive seek
treatment, along with people from all over Kancheepuram. Many patients have the benefit of insurance cover via tie-ups
with TTK Health Care, Health India and others. Some key features are:
• Round the clock experienced hospital staff of 270 doctors, nurses and paramedics
• Largest blood bank in the state
• Multiple state of the art emergency care units designed in consultation with Partners HealthCare
• Ambulance services available 24/7

General Hospital, Ramapuram


This multi-specialty facility ensures that high quality, affordable healthcare reaches the community. Hospital services
include special clinics, counseling, and courses in wellness and life skills. It has links with other city hospitals so that
students receive optimal exposure during clinical training. Top of the line facilities include:
• 300 beds and round the clock emergency services
• Well-stocked pharmacy
• Excellent post-operative care
• High tech operation theater complex
• Modern computerized laboratories functioning round the clock
• X-ray unit and other investigation facilities

Healthcare that creates bonds


The Medical & Health Sciences colleges regularly coordinate camps and awareness drives in nearby villages. Students,
staff and faculty screen and treat as many people as possible. They dispense free medicine and treatment, and visit
schools to conduct pre-emptive screenings and to teach basic health awareness to children.

In September 2006, the Cardiology Department sprung into action on a day observed in countries across the world
by asking the question, ÒHow young is your heart?Ó Around 280 students from the Neelan Matriculation School at
Guduvancheri literally took this question to heart as our students and staff conducted cardiac screenings. The students
were also involved in classes and workshops that taught the ins and outs of cardiac disease prevention.

Reaching out to the community


SRM University has opened many primary healthcare facilities throughout the city and in villages surrounding Chennai
where our students gain valuable experience. One group of centers caters to 526 families in 3 villages around
Maraimalai Nagar and 9 villages near Mamandur. Center staff direct patients who require more sophisticated secondary
and tertiary medical care to hospitals. Here are some of the key services the centers provide:
• Outpatient care & referral
• Primary immunization
• Antenatal, delivery & postnatal care
• Clinics for children under five
• Educating schoolchildren about general health, conducting screenings for cardiac ailments and infectious diseases,
and giving dental and general health checkups
• Family welfare checkups followed by field visits

Breaking away from the routine
The pressures of a highly demanding curriculum can get to even the best of students. This is the time
to mix with other students in the same boat as you. SRM University attracts students from a variety
of backgrounds, from around the country and overseas. The cosmopolitan environment is filled with
opportunity, to learn and understand other cultures and languages.

Association & clubs


There are a number of clubs that a new student entering the campus can choose from. As varied as one’s
interests, they include yoga, meditation, community service, music, debate, poetry, literature and many
others. The photography club, the literary club and the mathematics club are some of the most popular
ones as many students find common ground. Images SRM conducts training programs regularly on
various areas of photography, film processing, animation, editing and mixing, and shooting documentaries.

Recreation
Students can take time out from rigorous training and keep fit by taking advantage of the well-equipped
gymnasium or through yoga. Professionals are at hand to help students if needed. Swimming to relieve stress or
a brisk canter on a horse are popular activities amongst the peers. The campus also features an outdoor jogging
track and cycling range.

Athletics & sports


You will find open grounds and all the facilities that an athlete could wish for. Coaches guide budding
players, and exceptional student athletes receive cash incentives and sponsorships.
With a rich crop of state and national level players, we have received many laurels over the years. Our
Men’s Cricket team, number one in all of Tamil Nadu, represents the state in the Ranji Trophy tournament.
Men’s Intra-University Basketball is number one in India; women’s Intra-University Basketball places
second.
The university started organizing and sponsoring athletic events in 2005 with the SRM Junior National
Athletics Championship held at Nehru stadium in Chennai in 2006, SRM University hosted both the South
India and the All-India Intra-University Men’s Basketball tournaments on the Kattankulathur campus. The
SRM All-India Volleyball tournament followed in March 2007 and the SRM All-India Professional Boxing
Championship in July 2007. You can look forward to many more events on this dynamic campus.

Aarush ‘07: An enthralling first
