Message from Principal
Sreyas Institute of Engineering & Technology is established with a vision of nurturing young talents. The primary aim of this of our institution is to provide professional education, in a vibrant atmosphere to deserving students. It is the desire of SRYS to promote sustained growth and inclusiveness by harnessing young talents who are pro-active enough to meet the demands and challenges of the volatile global environment. Emphasis is placed on the holistic development of the students coupled with value based education through sound ethics.
SREYAS looks at education, not merely in terms of quantity of knowledge, but in terms of quality of knowledge that helps form the character of students, ‘total formation of individuals’. In a world of unequal and unjust society, SREYAS forms students as catalysts of social change in order to march with the marginalized to the summit of empowering the powerless. SREYAS also possesses a progressive and innovative outlook with traditional roots.
I assure you all that the SREYAS administration and my team of dedicated and highly qualified faculty are totally committed to produce Engineers of a very high caliber to meet the growing and ever changing demands of industries and global market.
