    SRMIST participates in rural education and infrastructure development.

    On 18th July 2019, with the help of II year Civil Engineering students, the UBA cell of SRMIST conducted Training Needs Assessment Survey at Govt High School, Anjur. The aim of the survey was to identify gaps in learning, inadequate facilities in school and provide for upliftment of the school's infrastructure.

    All the students and teachers cooperated in completing the survey, which will be analysed and their priority needs will be addressed upon approval from SRM Management.



    The Maintenance Department of SRMIST fixed broken Indian closets and tiles in toilets and provided an extension of water line for urinals. The sewage was cleaned and closed with proper manhole. Valves for drinking waterline, toilet waterline, washbasin waterlines were fixed to stop water leakage. The children were taught about effective water management practices, ill-effects of stagnant water and spread of water-borne diseases. 

    The classrooms got new fans and old fans were repaired. 

    The old desks and benches got a new coat of paint. With the school re-opening in June 2019, the students were happy using their newly painted furniture.
