    Learning Methodology

    At SCIT a semester pattern, that is, 2 terms per academic year is followed. At the beginning of the term, the syllabus along with the names of reference books, authors and the evaluation policy is communicated to the students. No text books are prescribed as students are expected to explore and learn by referring to books, implementing concepts in the labs and collecting references from the Internet, analyzing and problem solving through case studies etc. SCIT also has a digital library with a spectrum of e-books and magazines. SCIT's evaluation policy has external as well as internal evaluation. The internal evaluation is carried out continually and consists of any combination of several components such as projects, lab tests, presentations, whitepapers etc. The main objective here is to evaluate learning.

    Internships

    Internship in the industry is an integral part of the 2-year academic programmes at SCIT. It provides excellent opportunities for SCIT students to get a first hand experience of business realities. Before working as interns, SCIT students work on pilot projects, a replica of what happens in the industry. This enables them to make a quick start in learning from the "LIVE" environment during an internship project, a new perspective that a classroom cannot generate. In the past, most of the SCIT students have worked with reputed companies and have contributed significantly; some have even traveled abroad for live projects.

    Projects

    Collaborative Projects

    SCIT makes a conscious effort in tracking technology advancements and transformations that businesses are going through. The students as well as the faculty of SCIT undertake various industry projects as well as R & D projects that cover this area of study.
    In year 2007 and 2008 SCIT students have carried out successfully a project “AMDEST” A Metrics Driven Enterprise Software Tool. AMDEST is built around the idea that enterprise software development can be guided by the use of simple, intuitive metrics that help understand the effects of changing requirements, offer insights into how responsibilities are delegated to software components etc.
    Twelve students from Software Solutions Management specialization worked in two batches with the doctoral student of Florida State University to complete this research project. The project mainly focused on analyzing the impact of change in requirements on software already built.

    Research and Development Projects

    Research orientation is an important part of learning at SCIT. Students need to register and work on a dissertation. SCIT presently works in these broader areas of research.
    Multi-faceted Learning

    At SCIT we believe in the new realization that exams are only a purpose of learning and true learning is actually a journey to explore knowledge. SCIT looks at postgraduate education with a view to create 'learnability' in a student that stays with him life-long and does not wither with a degree in hand. SCIT lays importance on a student's all-round development with a focus on academics as well in all its residential programmes. The holistic programmes build strength and create a framework to enjoy life as professionals and as individuals. Self-exploration through programmes such as 'Moral Re-Armnanent Camp (MRA)' is encouraged.

    SCIT's Power Triangle

    SCIT Learning Triangle
    At SCIT, students undergo a transformation into empowered proactive professionals through a three-fold learning process: gaining experiential knowledge of technology and practices, mental and physical well-being through a holistic health programme and industry practices. SCIT offers residential and off-campus programmes as well as corporate training programmes.
    RITS University Collaboration

    Ritsumeikan University and SCIT - SIU have agreed to collaborate in

    Academic and research collaboration in areas of mutual interest.
    Exchange of academic information, scholarly information, material and publications.
    Exchange of students and faculty. Joint seminars, workshops and other academic meetings.


    SIU-Carleton MoU

    SCIT to benefit through SIU-Carleton MoU

    Symbiosis International University, Pune-India and Carleton University, Ottawa- Canada, singed an MoU to facilitate collaboration on academic and research related activities in the area of Information Technology Business Management.
    The Memorandum of Understanding signed between Carleton University and Symbiosis International University will give the opportunity to establish an exchange of an unlimited number of post graduate students and also provide opportunities for the exchange of expertise and practical experience in the areas of Information Technology Business Management. This will specifically benefit the students and faculty members of SCIT which is a constituent of Symbiosis International University offering MBA in IT Business Management
    This will be a shot in the arm for all students and faculty members of SCIT, as it would open up a number of avenues for collaborative research. This will also help the overall professional development of students pursuing their MBA in ITBM as they would get opportunities to learn from internationally renowned faculty members.
