My association with S R Engineering College (popularly known as SREC) is very long. First, as its Principal since 2005 up to 2013 and now as its Director. Having seen 9 batches of students graduating with exceptional merit, I share with great pride and humility, the legacy of SREC under the able leadership of our beloved Chairman, Sri Varadha Reddy and its dynamic Secretary, Sri Madhukar Reddy. Established by S R Group in 2002, SREC is now a household name in the region of Telangana, well known for its reputation as a student-centric institution setting very high standards in technical education.
I take great pleasure in partaking in its phenomenal growth in the past one decade of its establishment. Within a short span of six years, three of its undergraduate programs were accredited by NBA in the year 2008. JNTUH has accorded autonomous status in the year 2011 with permanent affiliation. Recognizing its contribution to quality education, UGC has granted autonomy to SREC in 2014. The college is now running 5 undergraduate and 7 postgraduate engineering programs besides a Master of Business Management (MBA) program. In 2013, SREC has added the integrated 5½ year Master of Technology Management (MTM) program which is very popular among engineering students of our college. In 2014, the college has started the 5 year integrated applied management program for the award of a dual degree BBA+MAM admitting students from 10+2 background.
SREC has taken up a very ambitious program of restructuring the curriculum and adding state of art technology-enabled infrastructure to meet the international ABET guidelines of accreditation and thereby produce globally employable graduates with adequately equipped entrepreneurial skills. It is vigorously pursuing its research plans in diverse areas attracting funding from external agencies like DST, AICTE, MNRE, DRDO and UGC.
I am very delighted and honored to be in this inspiring and innovative academic environment interacting with students, staff, faculty, parents and alumni sharing their views and aspirations and listening to many eminent people from industry and society for their kind counsel. I wish every success for this great institution in all its endeavors.
