  • Classes are split into 9 periods or hours as they call it here, 5 days a week. Standard timings are 8:50 A.M to 4:55 P.M with a 1 hour break from 12:25 P.M to 1:25 P.M. But within those 9 hours of classes there would be some free hours to make the schedule somewhat relaxed.
  • We have many subjects every sem, but this seems to be the case with every engineering course. Marks split is quite simple. There is 10% each for 2 cycle tests. Then 5% for surprise test or assignment and another 5% for attendance, ridiculous, I know! 20% for model exam of the subject. And finally, 50% for the end-sem exam. Less projects are given to be done. So far till 3rd year we have been asked to show only 2. 
  • Problem with SRM is the population. So many people are enrolled every year. So this makes it obvious to have a number of teachers too. So there are some teachers who have knowledge and are able to teach but others are not up to the mark.
  • But all discussed above are purely academic. There are so many clubs for every interest, like there are a few for computer related stuff also. Joining those clubs is a huge plus as you get to learn a lot more there than in class. What you learn there is quite different from class room as you work together on self assigned projects and try to learn as you go on about finishing them. SRM does provide with a lot of resources to help a student excel. 
  • And yeah, the library. is huge. A 3-floor library full of books of all kinds - from learning different languages like Japanese to exceling the art of machine learning. It is a very good library with high quality facilites.

  • Hii, I am Sreyashi,pursuing BTech(CSE) from SRM Univ,Chennai. Highly reputed right. Well the daily routine might seem somewhat tedious. Classes start as early as 8:00 am and continue till 3:40 pm.Tea break from 8:55 to 9:10 is a great relaxation followed by an hour long lunch break from 11:55am.Over a semester,3 rounds of examinations are held before the final university examinations namely the cycle test 1,cycle test2 and the model examinations covering the entire syllabus for the semester subjects.1 assignment per subject is mandatory for Internal Marks.Projects are mandatory only for the 4th,6th and 8th semester students,however students continuously participate in the various project competitions held by the respective depts and also as a part of being involved in many of the dept clubs for attaining knowledge outside of the book.Practical Implementation is highly supported.
  • Quality of teaching is sufficiently good.Teachers are punctual,helpful,readily available and help the stidents with important questions,notes and everything that can be expected of them.
  • Overall experience at college is just too good.Already learnt a lot.Aiming for more.Cannot ask for anything more than this.

4 boys hostels and near about 10 girls hostel are their in the University Campus itself.The Hostel fee per month is near about Rs 5,000.

Other stay options are available in plenty at an affordable rate outside of the college premises, nearby to the college locality.Being a student's hub, these options are just too much in number with no security or safety issues in anyway.

The Mess food is quite good,with separate North and South Indian kitchens,and also Veg and NonVeg varieties.The meals cost about Rs 4000 on monthly basis for the hostelites,and might cost a mere Rs.50-60 per meal.

The Classrooms are huge with ample space and airy with lights,fans,ACs and curtains.Labs are fully Air-Conditioned making use of the high quality apparatus and computer systems.Libraires consist of all types of books starting from novels,fictions to journals and what not. E-librairies are also present for online surfing and study at no extra cost.Dining Halls are huge,airy, arranged with rows of chairs,separate halls for girls and boys,but might sometimes be stinky because of the dustbins filled with the spilled food,and the sink pipelines may be jammed,but anyways they are cleaned regularly,so just a temporary issue.

University campus is a small word in itself with all facilities provided such as banks,parlour,gym,gift and stationary shops,laundry shops,food outlets such as McD and KFC to name a few,juice shops and what not.The entire campus is a treat to the eyes of the beholder.

  • I think they are taking too many fees at SRM University.
  • Mess foods are not edible for 4 years since they don't change the menu and taste, they would be so many things to eat but the taste will be missing.
  • But for a south Indian, it's heaven.
  • They provide breakfast, lunch, snacks, diner+fruit every day, 2time tea/coffee/bread-butter will be available, afternoon you'll have buttermilk and dinner hot milk will be served with a banana every day.
  • They provide non-veg thrice in a week. I am rating it as 5 due to the repetition of the menu and taste.

  • The campus is SAFE FOR GIRLS at SRM University.
  • Yes, the number of rich kids are more but again it doesn't mean one who comes from a lower middle-class family can't survive.

  • Since the number of students in each branch is very high, there are usually no official freshers' parties or farewell parties like in most of the other colleges.
  • But very soon after you enter the college, you'll be forming your own groups and the partying culture would soon set in. It becomes little tough with the 6 PM in-time for girls (They aren't allowed outside hostels after 6pm).
  • But there are workarounds for that too.
  • SRM is not a big time party school , but definitely better than many other colleges.
  • I would suggest you to meet as many people as possible through clubs or groups, so that you get invited to most of the parties.
