“My vision for SRM AP is an inter-disciplinary environment that stimulates active, engaged learning and cutting edge research. We challenge our students to think critically and creatively, communicate clearly, and develop into thoughtful global citizens and leaders. Learning through discovery and interaction is more powerful and enduring than listening passively to lectures. We seek to equip our students with the cognitive tools to adapt to and seize opportunities offered by a rapidly changing world. Most of all, we stand apart with a network of associations with esteemed institutions around the world, so that students make their mark in a connected world.”
