Message from Vice-Chancellor

Dr. S. Vaidhyasubramaniam


With a humble beginning in the year 1984, SASTRA’s progress in the last 30 years is a testimony to its commitment to build a University as envisaged in its guiding model.  Today, SASTRA is one of India’s premier deemed universities offering undergraduate, postgraduate & doctoral programmes in Engineering, Management, Law, Sciences, Humanities and Education.  As a comprehensive Deemed University, its teaching programmes are supported by research engagements, consultancy assignments and training activities, which make SASTRA a fully integrated Deemed University.  It has been re-accredited by NAAC with a maximum grade of ‘A++’ and is also recognized as a Scientific & Industrial Research Organization by the Government of India.

An excellent faculty committed to quality teaching and research, a flexible curriculum responsive to the changing needs of industry, excellent computer facilities, state-of-the-art infrastructure, a well-stocked library - contribute to the excellence of our undergraduate, postgraduate and doctoral programmes.

The merit-based admission process of SASTRA attracts many corporate recruiters who are happy with the Management’s uncompromising stand on transparency and meritocracy in the admission process.  This unique admission practice has won public acclaim at large and has been the single largest influencing factor in attracting bright young minds to SASTRA. 

SASTRA is where you connect with other motivated students, experienced and dedicated faculty, corporate go-getters, an extensive alumni network and excellent placement opportunities. In short you connect with success.

You will find your experience at SASTRA unique. We strive to create an academic environment where students who are transparently selected only on merit are continually challenged and motivated to do their best possible work. We believe in nurturing values and ethics - professional and human. An enriching academic environment coupled with a salubrious ambience makes SASTRA the right destination. SASTRA's true living to its admission ethos makes it admission motto "THINK MERIT. THINK TRANSPARENCY. THINK SASTRA" a model benchmark worthy of emulation.

SASTRA has an ethos of its own, different from others.  At a time when altruistic ideals and civic interests seem to have given way to power goals and heightened interest in materialism, SASTRA presents a holistic approach to personal and professional growth.

SASTRA moulds its students in such a way that their endeavors and interests transcend traditional boundaries. They do not seek to maintain status quo nor settle for observing change; they rather hope to be powerful instruments of change using their dynamic verve to make their contributions to the world

We invite you to visit our campus. I hope you will find the information an inspiring introduction to the opportunities that await you at SASTRA.
