About Sastra


The dreams of its founding fathers took shape in 1984 in the form of Shanmugha College of Engineering, which is now renamed, SHANMUGHA ARTS, SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY & RESEARCH ACADEMY (SASTRA). Our programmes, infrastructure, teaching-learning, etc., are among the country's finest. SASTRA has always been proactive in its academic planning and believes in gaining the first-mover advantage. As a testimony to this, the Government of India has conferred the Deemed University status to SASTRA on April 26, 2001 under section 3 of the UGC Act, 1956.

SASTRA offers various undergraduate and post graduate courses in Engineering, Science, Education, Management, Law and Arts besides various Doctoral programmes and has state-of-the-art laboratories, a well stocked library and one of the best computing facilities.

About KS Upahaar


Ever since the first edition of Kuruksastra, it has been getting more action packed and fun filled with assimilation of spanking new ideas. Kuruksastra XI promises not only these, but also a chance which can give you the happiness-contentment in the truest sense.

Most of us have been lucky to get all that we have ever needed, good schooling, as many clothes as we want, and needless to say, food, healthy and nourishing. But there are millions out there, who are not as fortunate as us, who do not have these amenities, which are the primary requisites of life. For them, our most humble contribution can ameliorate their lives.

KS Uphaar is an earnest initiative to raise funds that can directly be utilized in providing education essentials in schools in and around Trichy and Thanjavur.

Kuruksastra Upahaar team has envisaged accomplishing this non-profit fundraising by having collection boxes in all the clusters and other popular hangouts in the campus. The idea behind this fund-raising is to let the poor and needy children gain something useful when we have fun. Hence, the team has decided to conduct a few fun events and the money collected will be slided to KSU. The contribution, how much ever modest can be made, with a complete idea of how every penny of it is eventually going to be put to use.

If foregoing a burger or cold coffee can bring a smile on a thousand faces, is it not worth it? As they say, children are our future, let us be a small ray of hope in the beam of light that they need to establish a bright tomorrow. Join KS Upahaar!!
