Global Education Standards: Education, perhaps more than any other discipline or area of professional activity, is global in its nature, scope and impact. With the advent of instant communication such as Satellite TV and the Internet, conventional boundaries of the past have been erased. There is a need for education in India to be in line with the cutting-edge developments in the rest of the world. Especially in the fields of Science and Engineering, there is always the necessity of keeping abreast of the latest advancements.
* Education in a traditional environment in India is combined with the latest Educational Technology in developed countries.
* Substantial cost savings: Getting a four-year foreign degree by spending only two years abroad.
* Flexibility in choosing and changing the Engineering specialty which is not possible in India.
* Wide range of subjects to choose from, many of which are not offered at any institute in India.
* Opportunity to learn in two different cultural environments, and thus becoming an internationally qualified professional.
* Opportunity to pursue Master’s degree programs at the same university abroad.
Savings: Also, since the programme would be taught in India, a student tends to save around 50% of the Tuition Fee, plus living expenses.
Rigorous Academic Curriculum: The curriculum and assessments followed at SIET program is based on curriculum/ pattern as followed at Coventry University. The course syllabus, credit allocation and evaluation procedures follow a stringent and rigorous criterion.
