Humanity has always turned to excellence as a flower turns towards the sun. Quality thus perceived, is an abiding interest in, and a desire to develop, whatever is regarded as excellent in Arts, scholarly pursuits of Sciences, Engineering, Technology, and Humanities. The need to educate and train young men and women, to hone them into professionally competent, rounded personalities has been a burning passion. It was Richard Mulcaster of Elizabethan England who declared: “It is not a mind, not a body that we have to cultivate, but a man, and we cannot divide him”.
SASTRA University, committed to excellence, with a holistic approach has consistently maintained the highest standards in “a man-making education” in the immortal words of Swami Vivekananda which can only be ensured by quality teaching of the finest calibre. SASTRA believe in Tagorean concept of “The Home and the World”, keeping in mind, the vital importance of empowering women, by giving them their rightful place in national development
Admissions to all programmes are strictly based on merit. For B. Tech. programmes 70% of the total seats are filled by SASTRA based on the qualifying higher secondary examination marks following the process of normalization. To bring all candidates from different examining authorities or boards in the same scale of comparison and to create a list in the order of merit, higher secondary examination marks are normalized. The first rank student in each board is considered to have obtained 100% mark and aggregate marks of all other students of the board are normalized with reference to that of the first ranked student. For example, if the first rank is 97% and an applicant's aggregate is 90% then the applicant's normalized percentage is 92.78 (90/97 x 100). A merit list is drawn based on the normalized percentage for making admissions. Admissions for students from the vocational stream to the respective B. Tech. programme are done from within the same category of applicants. The remaining 30% of the seats are filled by MHRD based on the All India Engineering Entrance Examination (AIEEE) ranks as SASTRA has volunteered to offer seats to AIEEE qualified candidates. Applications are called for in leading dailies and through SASTRA website for the 70% of the seats filled by SASTRA counseling and the publicity for the remaining 30% of the seats is provided by CBSE.
For all PG programmes the admissions are made on the basis of the scores in the qualifying UG / PG degree programme. GATE qualified students are given preference. For all other UG arts & science programmes, admissions are based on the qualifying examination marks.
