The college is one of the tripartite institutions governed by the Surajmal Memorial Education Society and is well known in the sphere of academics as well as for its array of technical and cultural fiestas hosted annually with great exhilaration. It is a nursery for some wonderful and promising ideas being nurtured by future leaders of the world. With a highly rich heritage and a blazing future, we provide the ideal platform for reaching out to the masses and striking the right cords with them.

TEDx MSIT is a sedulous and result oriented team of budding engineers, working round the clock to make each of its endeavours as quintessential as possible. The selection process for the team began with extensive online and offline publicity on the campus. After rigorously screening an odd lot of about 400 students, a 25 member army of young and diligent students was narrowed down to be part of TEDx MSIT. The society is efficiently managed into smaller groups to take care of five different departments and work in synchronous with each other. TEDx MSIT is rapidly becoming a name in itself and is primed to pounce upon any opportunity that comes its way.
