Sahyadri Project Support Scheme - SPSS

Motivated by the desire to build a strong base for practical problem solving and hands on skills amongst the students, the Chairman of Sahyadri College of Engineering & Management, Dr. ManjunathBhandary initiated the Sahyadri Project Support Scheme (SPSS). Through this scheme, the department of Projects and Funding provides financial and academic support for engineering student projects. The SPSS scheme is the novel paradigm and first of its kind amongst technological universities in India created by Sahyadri College of Engineering &Management. While most of the engineering projects in the engineering colleges and universities are generally conducted as academic final year projects or club projects, SPSS is quite different wherein students execute non-academic engineering projects for the sake of engineering and not obtaining academic scores.

Project

The Department of Projects and Funding is aimed to create practical problem solving ambience in the students by promoting research and projects in engineering sciences and innovations in established and newer technologies; Research and development activities are considered as an essential component of higher education because of their role in creating new knowledge and insight and imparting excitement and dynamism to the educational process, as well as make them need based in view of the national requirements. The objective of this department is to create and update the general creativities of the students of the various branches of the college.

Motivated by the desire to build a strong base for practical problem solving in the students as well as to build their R & D potential, the Department of Project and Funding launched Student Project Support Scheme- SPSS to convert enormous reservoir of talent and creativity in the students to projects and products. Through this scheme, the Department of Projects and Funding provides financial and academic support for student projects. This scheme is a major innovation and first of its kind in technical education in the country and has a major impact in improving the quality of technical education.

The objectives of STUDENT PROJECT SUPPORT SCHEME- SPSS are

  • To encourage project activities of the students in the field of Science and Technology in order to promote innovation in projects.
  • To promote taking up research in newly emerging and frontier areas of Science and Technology including multidisciplinary fields.
  • To attract fresh talents in the college towards research and project activities.
