Message from chief coordinator

Dr. P. Saradhamani

Chief Coordinator

India does not have any particular shortage of problems. Enormous problems prevail, but are we doing anything? Even in premier engineering colleges, are they doing anything to challenge the problem faced by the country? At SNSCE, we help few sets of students to find out simple problems in the society and take up that as a project. If we can make a contribution, that, will bring about a change. That is the kind of innovation that we are trying to do at Entrepreneurship Development Cell of SNSCE
