DESIGN THINKING

Design thinking is a novel approach of solving engineering and social problem from the customer perspective. All most all global corporate gaints are pioneering in design thinking and internationally recognized universities and institutions are also deploying design thinking in their curriculum. We are 1st  institutions in India who has successfully implemented design thinking at our curriculum level and have also trained faculties and students in the process. Design thinking makes the students more inclined to the customer perspective to identify their need and employ technology to provide it.

7+5 THRUST AREAS

The world as we know is is moving to greater heights with seven fields comprising Agriculture and Food Technology, Healthcare and Biomedical, Power & Energy, Aerospace and Defence, Automobile, Smart city and Fintech, being the fore runners in the world economy. There are five revolutionary technologies of Augmented Reality & Virtual Realty, Internet of Things, Data Analytics, Robotics and Automation and 3D Printing. The combination of the fields and the influencing technologies are framed as the 7+5 thrust areas. The institution focuses and works in these seven fields through the five technologies. Students and faculty as one are given opportunity to learn, practice and master over these areas.

Industry Verticals

  • Agriculture & Food Technology
  • Healthcare & Biomedical
  • Power & Energy
  • Aerospace & Defence

BUSINESS MODEL CANVAS (BMC)

As a part of start-up culture, Aspiring Entrepreneurs should aware about Business Model Canvas (BMC) while pitching the startup idea to investors.  Business Model Canvas (BMC) should be short, simple and compelling.

For that our curriculum is implemented with Design thinking. So every student exposure to different canvas model for business.

SNS Courseware

Every course teacher uploads his/her lesson plan, lecture notes, assignments, Puzzles, Question banks with answer keys, multiple-choice questions (MCQs), etc in the college web portal www.snscourseware.org which are accessible by the students anywhere at any time. All the contents shared in the classroom are also uploaded on the website for students’ reference. Online learning holds the promise of broadening access to higher education to more individuals, while also lowering costs for students
