Pro Chancellor’s Message
Dr. Swati Mujumdar, Pro-Chancellor
Symbiosis University of Applied Sciences (SUAS), Indore
“TODAY THERE IS A HUGE REQUIREMENT OF SKILLED MANPOWER IN THE INDUSTRY”
At the same time, students completing graduation from conventional Universities are unable to find jobs due to lack of skills as per industry needs. To bridge this gap, the Symbiosis University of Applied Sciences offers degree programmes as well as short-term courses at all levels in high growth sectors. We have entered into collaborations with top industries such as MAN Trucks, John Deere, Volvo Eicher, Future Group (BIG Bazaar & Centrals), HDFC Bank, L&T and Reliance Capital.
The curricula have been designed by our industry partners. We also provide on-campus high-end Skill training labs and workshops with German machinery. Industry partners have set up a retail store, mock bank, finance plaza and automobile training facility to provide real-life experience to students.
I am confident that this unique model and state-of-the-art infrastructure supported by expert faculty will create a world-class experience for students leading to gainful employment and entrepreneurship. I welcome students to this University. Wishing you a successful academic tenure at the Symbiosis University of Applied Sciences.
