For a debut performance with less time for practice, SRMites have made a mark and having gotten an idea, will definitely bring home the trophy next year. Our staff knows now each other's strengths and will look forward to working as a team in the coming years. As the program motto was of uniting the company under one flag, help bonding among the company staff wherein the take home is not just prizes and medals, but the spirit of being one and needing to soar, this was achieved remarkably among our SRMites.
The management's unstinting support for faculty and staff enhancement in all facets of their lives is commendable.Dr .N. Ponnavaikko, Vice chancellor was delighted to learn our SRM non teaching staff and few faculty members were so competitive and moved to new levels of competitiveness.
