The SRM Group of Institutions stand proud as the best and most preferred destination for quality higher education in India. Its universities are spread across the length and breadth of the country namely Chennai, Haryana, Amravati and recently in Sikkim. SRM institutions boast of excellent state-of-the-art infrastructure and placement opportunities to each of its students.

 

Today, the SRM family stands tall with over 46000 students and 2700 plus faculty members offering a wide range of undergraduate, postgraduate and doctoral programmes in Engineering, Management, Medicine and Health Sciences and Science and Humanities. SRM in itself has emerged as the hallmark of a robust academic environment that promises highly qualified and trained faculty, flexible and dynamic curriculum, cutting-edge programs, exciting research opportunities and global networking. All of these are facilitated by the excellent infrastructure to provide for every need of the SRM academic fraternity.

 

With over three decades of experience in promoting quality higher education to students across India,  the SRM Group established SRM University, Sikkim in Gangtok, through the act, The Shri Ramasamy Memorial University, Sikkim Act, 2013 (Act No.13, 2013) passed in the Sikkim State Legislative Assembly on 9th October 2013. Promoted by SRM Trust, SRM University Sikkim has already completed its four years in Sikkim, successfully shouldering the legacy of the SRM brand.

 

The state of Sikkim owing to its terrain and topography has limited options for quality education forcing many of its bright students to leave the state for better options elsewhere. SRM University, Sikkim with its outstanding academic standards aims to fulfill this need of the students. With its unique programmes ranging from the fields of Management to Information Technology, Tourism and Hospitality to Humanities and Vocational studies, the university is focused on delivering learner-centric, industry-relevant and job-oriented education with a concentration on skill building and knowledge creation while fostering freedom and creative innovation in the students. The university also has a special attention on placements and already a significant number of students have been placed in various companies.

 

SRM University, Sikkim holds immense promise and potential in becoming a source of knowledge acquisition and skill development not only in the state of Sikkim but in the entire Northeast of the Indian subcontinent. I congratulate the university community for their fourth year of continuous dedication and service and wish them all the success in future.
