CMR University School of Engineering & Technology


CMR University SOET

The School of Engineering and Technology, at CMR University, offers academic undergraduate, postgraduate, and doctoral programmes in prominent Engineering and Technology fields. The curriculum has been carefully designed to encourage creativity and allow students the flexibility to explore and learn beyond classroom study. The School’s strong knowledge partnerships and collaborations with industry enable delivery of a curriculum that is relevant and current with industry and academic trends.

The School of Engineering and Technology (SOET) has a built-up space of 2,00,000 Sq. Ft. spread across a sprawling 66 acre campus in North Bengaluru. Students from all parts of the country and abroad are pursuing their graduate, postgraduate, and doctoral studies at the School of Engineering and Technology. With a balanced staff to student ratio of 1:12 and Outcome Based Education (OBE) approach with Choice Based Credit System (CBCS) curricula, we follow innovative teaching and learning paradigms. This includes project based courses like Python, CAD with rapid prototyping, Making with Electronics and case study based courses like Control Engineering and Entrepreneurship.

At the SOET, a unique component of student assessment criteria is the Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE). The CCE measures students’ abilities through their contribution to various activities, team projects and case studies. These modules are structured in ways that make peer learning an integral part of every course. Each student is an active participant in the learning process and the role of a professor is that of a facilitator. Instruction is designed to engage students in learning experiences that enable them to not only learn concepts but also to develop greater insights towards practical application. Collaborative learning allows students to engage in positive ways that lead to the development of their organizational skills, their ability to teamwork, and the art of giving and receiving feedback.
