"SVHEC has committed to provide quality Education in Engineering, Technology and Management by continually improving the Infrastructure and Educational practices to enhance the best work culture and Academic ambience with avenues for all round personality development of the students".
“To become a premier technical institute by producing value based competent professionals with scientific temper, team spirit and ethical values”.
Competency and skill development
Advances in Information Technology have introduced fundamental changes in business structures and work processes. These changes demand for the introduction of new educational approaches in teaching learning process. To create outstanding industrial engineers, it is essential to impart qualitative, innovative, creative, value driven training and development programmes/workshops/seminars. That is the reason,why competency based training and development is a must to add up to a Holistic Learning/Teaching Approach. To enhance students’ competency level, the institute has signed MoUs (Memorandum of Understanding) with various organizations in the engineering and technology sectors. Technical experts of those organizations conducted seminars to students on recent technologies at our college campus. In addition Industrial visits are also organized. These programmes help the students to improve their scientific knowledge, peer learning and ethical values. To make students become competent engineers, the training and placement cell of institute plays a vital role by being a platform between corporate and young graduates. Services are provided throughout the year to prepare students and help them secure placements. The number of students placed through campus placement programmes is on the rise every year.
Center of Excellence for Industry Innovation & Practice (CEIIP)
Center of Excellence for Industry Innovation & Practice (CEIIP) is the unique strength of our institute through which the students are given hands on training in the industries directly. The institute has obtained Centre of Excellence from SS Technovation, Coimbatore. Centre of Excellence is a facility with necessary infrastructure to enhance the skills of the students. These centers through their facilities and industry know-how provide ample opportunities for the students and staff to comprehend the latest industry practice and upgrade their knowledge through industry relevant projects. Centre also upgrades the prowess of the technicians who are currently employed by the industry as well, thus serving as a revenue generating model. Efforts are on, to set up more such centers to strengthen ties between the institute and the industry
Incubation setup center was established in 2018 at our college premises. The aim of the incubation center is to encourage entrepreneurship among locals with the college serving as focal point. It is a platform for nurturing, encouraging and developing innovation and entrepreneurial skills among its students, alumni, as well as students of the region. SS Technovation established incubation center at the institute for CSE,ECE,EEE and Mechanical students.
Entrepreneurship in India is on the verge of explosive growth. Angel investors, venture capital, media, startup clubs, service providers, mentors and training companies have started to grow. The most important cog in the wheel, is the incubator which gives them a chance to bring their business in shape, before they reach out to the world.

Best Practice No.1
Best Practice No.2
Under graduate engineering programme students frequently require guidance and counseling from their faculties to refresh their intellect. Each faculty play the role of mentor for a group of students ranging from 10 to 20 students.
Objective of the practice:
• To monitor the students’ regularity & discipline.
• To enable the parents to know about the performance & regularity of their wards.
• To provide counseling to students for solving their problems and provide confidence to improve their career.
Mentors for first year students are from the department of Science & Humanities, II, III and IV year students have their mentors from their respective departments. Department faculty members take care of the students till their graduation from the college. Mentors will inform parents about the absence of their wards. If necessary, they call the parents personally for discussion. Mentors also monitor the performance of students and report the same to the HoD.
The mentor will go through the following activities.
• Every day morning at 8.55 am first hour handling faculty members goes to the class room and motivate the students to do meditation for five minutes, followed by prayer, news paper reading and birthday wishes.
• First hour handling faculty makes entry of the first hour attendance in e-campus and absent message is automatically sent to the parents of absentees through e-campus.
• Mentors give counseling to the students who are absent for the class regularly.
Guidance and Career counseling by mentors:
• Students, who have less attendance, are counseled and informed to parents.
• Students, who get low marks in more than two subjects in internal examinations, are counseled and special classes are conducted.
• More than one arrear students in semester exams are counseled and their performance are continuously monitored in the internal tests.
• Students, who have poor communication skill, are identified and are motivated by mentor and they are trained to develop their communication skills in the communication hour.
• Students having family problems, health issues and other in disciplinary activities are identified and are duly counseled.
• Mentors motivate the II year ,III year, IV year students to participate in the value added courses, mini projects, seminars, workshops and paper presentations etc.,
• Mentors always keep in touch with parents/guardians and promptly respond to situations like academic irregularities, negative behavioral changes, interpersonal relations and detrimental activities.
• Mentor maintains detailed progressive record of the student.
Evidence of Success:
• Improved students’ attendance records
• Minimized students drop-out rates (apparently due to Mentors’ intervention before a student falls short of attendance or has been regularly abstaining from classes)
• Identification of slow learners for conducting special classes.
• Increase in students’ semester results and placements.
• Students’ active participation in value added courses, mini projects, seminars, workshops and paper presentations etc.,
• Minimized academic irregularities, negative behavioral changes in the students.
• Keeping in touch with the mentors even after their graduation.
Problems Encountered And Resources Required:
• Students get absent during counseling.
• Students coming from rural areas hesitate to share their problems openly.
• Some students show lack of interest during counseling.
• Some students hesitate to share their family problems and health issues with mentors.
• Parents, mostly daily wagers, can’t attend the parents meeting, whenever required.
• To solve the above said problems, students should be made to discuss with psychiatrist regularly.
• Regular Yoga and meditation should be given students to improve their mind power.
• The mentors should closely maintain the relation to bring out the problems of the students
