—SVGOI, Punjab is a veritable cornucopia of educational services.
SVGOI has always been a hub of innovative activities and is always on the lookout for opportunities to collaborate with the industry as well as other academic institutions the world over. Curriculum is delivered in spacious, amphitheatre-style classrooms—fitted with modern Information and Communication Technology (ICT) equipment—and in well-equipped, modern laboratories. Additionally, students are encouraged—and provided relevant facilities—to participate in co-curricular and extra-curricular activities through various clubs and societies on the campus.
It is because of the cumulative effect of an elaborate in-campus academic infrastructure; strong national and international collaborations; and a robust on- campus recruitment record—including regular recruitment by reputed MNC’s companies—that the University finds favor with national as well as international students.
A healthy number of national students from diverse regions like Egypt, Nepal, Assam, Nagaland, Jharkhand, Delhi-NCR, Himachal Area (Upper & Lower), Uttrakhand, Chandigarh, Panchkula, Mohali, U.P and the localities are regularly studying at the campus, adding to the cultural diversity found on campus. The Institution is providing several opportunities for local students, too, to visit other institutions during inter-college competitions, exchange programs and thereby helping them receive invaluable international exposure.
The SVGOI has at the centre of its philosophical core the commitment to excellence in education. It is the strong academic heritage of the University, and such firmness on matters of principles that has seen it grow from strength to strength in such a short span of time.
