As an alumni of the prestigious college, fondly remembering her days of studying at the University, Shruti Khandare said, “Networking to identify opportunities, understand challenges and learn from experiences is a critical component of one’s transition from a student to the chosen field of profession. The SRM Global Meet 4.0 was an ideal platform that enabled experience-sharing by the alumni, with whom the connect of every current student is an emotional one, thereby making the information more acceptable. It was with this backdrop that I readily accepted the invite to speak at the meet, albeit virtually. A strong sense of nostalgia not only gripped me with a sense of pride, but also with a feeling of responsibility towards my own alma-mater. The Global Meet, with a noble cause and well organized, was truly a memorable event which is bound to stand the student community in great stead, as they leave the comforts of the college, into the wide world of opportunities.”

Envisioning to be a World Class University in creating and disseminating knowledge and providing students a unique learning experience in Science, Technology, Medicine, Management and other areas of Scholarship that will best serve the world and for the betterment of mankind.
