This is undertaken in the fully-equipped laboratories for Analogue and Digital Electronics, Communication Engineering, Power systems, Robotics, PLC Controls, Pneumatics and Automation, Mechanical Equipment, Mechanical workshops, and as well as Materials and Testing Laboratories.
Library: Books can never be replaced as the ultimate tools of knowledge but can include a wide range. Our Air-Conditioned library has thus a wide range of books for every discipline in its issue as well as a reference section. Also, online and offline subscriptions of research journals for every subject are made available for scholars for developing their research aptitude.
Hostel Facility/ Student Accommodation: Student Accommodation is one of the most critical components of the growing process and we at SUI proffer the best student housing which allows them to relax in a healthy environment.

Q4: There is a lot of stress that is being made regarding interaction with the industry as well as companies that recruit. What are the steps being taken by the institute in this direction?
Answer: Regular anxious moments can adversely affect a college student’s mental and physical state. It is becoming a common occurrence for students to undergo emotional or mental meltdowns, which unfortunately could lead to cases of depression. Some of the ways SUI helps their students to cope with stress are:
Manage yourself: Most people talk about managing time to have more of what life has to offer, but it’s only in managing ourselves that we really see a difference in our lives and can handle any stress life throws at us. At Sage, we help students to manage themselves in each way and other things fall into place.
Have Achievable Objectives: It is important to adequately prepare for failure. It is not possible to perform optimally all the time, so it is important not to be over-ambitious (because it may lead to frustration when goals are not achieved). Here we advise students to avoid stress, simply be true to themselves and set goals that are within reach. Also, give your best and be content with the results of your efforts.
Exercise: Health and vitality depend on your body’s ability to use oxygen and food effectively. One of the ways we help is through exercise and sports. Exercise also releases endorphins, which have been shown to improve one’s mood, making it a great way to deal with stress! Move your body every day!
Relax: Meditation, listen to soothing music, spend time with friends, and people you love, conscious breathing… these are all ways we practice here to really relax. Take time to be quiet every day.
Rest yourself: It’s important to take breaks. There’s a reason why faculties give students several during the day. While they are responsible for their own study schedule, it’s critical to their success that they take time to rest — away from their desk! It’s also important to get sufficient sleep. Students need at least seven hours each night. Good sleep habits include having a set bedtime and a set waking time.
Be aware of yourself: We encourage students to pay attention to their bodies. It gives them clues as to what it needs, and when something is wrong with it. Also, know what makes them feel great, and what makes them feel lousy. Being able to recognize those will help them make great decisions for themselves.
Q5: Internships are now mandatory as per AICTE guidelines. Does the institute help students with this? If yes how?
Answer: Internship is scheduled for 10-12 weeks in the month of May-July every year. Our institute facilitates internships for its students by giving them an opportunity to choose one of the industry areas prevailing in the corporate. Based on these choices, an analysis is done by the Sage University Placement Team and opportunities are created for the students in the desired and opted sector. Our students have got internships in companies like ByJu’s, PlanetSpark, Wipro, Quick Heal, Amazon, iLead, Samatrixand more.
