At the same time, students completing graduation from conventional Universities are unable to find jobs due to lack of skills as per industry needs. To bridge this gap the newly established Symbiosis University of Applied Sciences shall offer degree programs as well as short-term courses at all levels in high growth sectors. We have entered into collaborations with top industries such as MAN Trucks, John Deere, Volvo Eicher, Future Group (BIG Bazaar & Centrals), HDFC Bank, L&T and Reliance Capital.

The curricula have been designed by our industry partners. We are also providing on-campus, high-end Skill training labs & workshops with German machinery. Industry partners are setting up a retail store, mock bank, finance plaza & automobile training facility for providing real-life experience to students.

I am confident that this unique model & state of the art infrastructure supported by expert faculty will create a world-class experience for students leading to gainful employment & entrepreneurship.

I welcome students to this University. Wishing you a successful academic tenure at the Symbiosis University of Applied Sciences.
