We also encourage and motivate final year students to write GATE and other Competative examinations.

Future

This is an era of global competitiveness which call for continuous reform in curriculum, to meet the future target we at SPIT intended to develop both departmental laboratories as well as faculty, to accomplish this phase wise development programme is prepared. In the initial phase of the laboratory development we would like to established robotics laboratory, vibration laboratory, RP (Rapid Prototype) laboratory with the induction of sophisticated equipment like vibrometer cum FFT analyser, RP machine, CMM, 3D-scanner & printer etc.

As a part of our faculty programme we intend to develop subject wise expertise with motivation toward research, expert lectures from eminent industrial persons and industrial visits which will enhance practical knowledge base, etc are formulated.
