It Happens Here :>

‘Sri Indu’ – as soon as the name echoes through our minds, the huge towering building similar to the White House comes into the minds of every student. It has the reputation of being the best looking piece of architecture, very artistically conceived by our Chairman Mr. R.Venkat Rao garu. The institution is located on a scenic campus of 54 acres on the Nagarjunasagar highway and is about 12 kms from LB Nagar. The sylvan surroundings of the college provide an aesthetic appeal due to its proximity to lush green fields. Sri Indu College of Engineering & Technology was established in 2001 by New Loyola Model Education Society, Vanasthalipuram, Hyderabad.

It has been in the field of education educating young guns for more than 30 years. The college boasts of good buildings, labs and other facillities. It offers B.Tech programmes in almost all disciplines and also has PG, B.Ed., B.Pharmacy colleges in the same campus. As proclaimed by the college newsletter for the year 2009, Sri Indu has been rated among the top 10 colleges in the region based on performance.

The college boasts of a huge library including a digital library. Books are found in plenty but coming to the digital library, it has never been in use and students are never allowed to use those PC’s. Library rules are quite strict and students can visit the library only before and after college hours. Fines are dutifully levied much to the agony of students.

“We can’t afford to buy books outside due to their heavy price tags but here in our college, all books are borrowed even before the semester starts and I am forced to buy books”, complains Swati, a 3rd year student. All students were forced to pay a library fee along with other fees in the first year and were promised books every year, but were given books only for the first year and for the remaining years, they have to just borrow and return back. Only 30 new books arrive every year for each group and the books to students ratio is 1:4.

Coming to labs, the labs are all spacious and biotech labs are supposed to be the best on the campus. C.Sc labs are OK but frequent power cuts give students time for gossiping. Though the college website states that students are provided with 24 hr power supply and the management proclaims to have sufficient UPS facility and generator facilities, none of these seems to work well during power cuts from the past two years. ECE and EEE labs are also moderately good. They are spacious and well ventilated but the tool kits have become old and need upgradation. The main building has a beautiful dome in the centre and the building has three floors with each wing holding each department. Ground floor has all the ECE and EEE labs along with the administrative office and Principal’s room. The IT and ECE departments are present on the first floor along with the respective labs. Second floor has EEE, Mechanical, BioTech and Aeronautical departments along with the Library and Bio Tech labs. The Third floor has drawing labs and C.Sc Department. Juniors’ block is separated from this main building. B.Pharmacy also has a separate block.

“According to me, engineering has become a part of life not so worthy of seeing a bright future. What is happening in the real world? My college years have gone by so fast and I cannot believe they are almost over. My experience has been positive sometimes and also frustrating. As I got more adjusted to college, I made new friends and experienced  that teachings by the faculty never got into my brain. Lets be practical: what’s life after college like?  Thinking from day one, I’ve got no answer. We guys strive for 12 marks in our internals and work for the whole academic year to get 40 marks in lab externals to see what bliss God alone knows”, laments Sai Krishna, a 4th year student. Faculty are all young, dynamic and student friendly. Freshers will never find old and rugged looking lecturers teaching any subject. However, good English speaking lecturers seem to be very rare.

Canteen- the most favorite hangout for every engg student is cramped and is struggling to meet the demands of everyone. Definitely, a new and spacious canteen is needed to cater to the needs of such huge number of students and staff. Even after many appeals by students, the management is lending a deaf ear. “I stay in a room and can’t afford to cook daily, but this canteen is always crowded and caters to less people and I am forced to starve most of the days”, complains Shiva, a student. The college has only one canteen now. The other one was demolished long back and converted into a hall to accommodate more people. Seminars and other functions are held in the main auditorium at the rear, which can easily seat about 8000 people. A smaller hall inside the main building is used for meetings. The college is also registered with JKC and is striving for 100% placements but all this depends on students’ capabilities and skills. The college websites can be referred for further details at www.sriindugroup.org and www.sriindu.ac.in

There are no particular extra-curricular activities during college hours but the students can have recreation of their choice after college hours. So, when asked whether to join this college or not, the college follows sound discipline principles and a student can definitely shine if rules are strictly followed. This college is definitely not for light-hearted people, who want to enjoy life more than studies!
