The SRM institutions have more than 7,000 employees and 70,000 students currently.” shared Prof. Rao.
The University’s NSS division organised a blood donation camp together with the international Red Cross society. This was in line with the Founder’s vision to serve the community.

IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers) with over 120,000 student members is the world’s largest technical professional organization dedicated to advancing technology for the benefit of society. It does so through its highly-cited publications, conferences, technology standards, professional and educational activities.
SRM AP became a member of the IEEE in November 2018 and has 500 student members already.
Agniswar Paul, chair of IEEE SRM AP student branch says, “We will be looking to offer our members numerous professional advantages over and above the curriculum and academic experience. These could be participation at regional conferences, workshops, competitions like student paper contests and even scholarships. Also, opportunities in project/design programs.”
A vast network of member organisations helps create many of these opportunities. IEEE has more than 417000 members in more than 160 countries, more than half of them outside the United States. Student members begin by connecting with local communities active in research and authorship and engaged in important conversations on current and relevant technical topics. Georgy Jose, a student of Chengannur College of Engineering won the third prize from the IEEE Coding Competition, later bagging a placement in an American multinational IT company UST GLOBAL.
“All SRM AP members of the IEEE will gain ample exposure, enough to work on Research Papers and get published in world-class journals. Students will also be mentored to work on ideas perfected by thousands of academicians across the globe. They will also get a chance to attend conferences of their choice in any part of the world depending on their experiences and academic track record”, says Agniswar.
The IEEE Chapter at SRM AP kick-started this semester with a promotional event “GAME OF CLUES” on August 21st.
