We at SIES GST, believe not only in educa�ng our students but also paren�ng them. The mentor’s role is to
guide, give advice, and to support the mentee. With this purpose a well structured mentor-mentee system has been
developed in the college.
The professors of the college are allo�ed to a number of students as mentors under this system. The mentor is
one resort for a student where one can seek knowledge, guidance and support at all �mes. The mentor bridges the
communica�on gap between parents and management by regularly upda�ng the parents about the student’s
progress and updates from the college.
The mentor-mentee scheme has been a revela�on towards a promising personal and professional guidance
rela�onship developed over �me between faculty and students.
Mentor-mentee program is deﬁned by the following ac�vi�es.
1. Providing emo�onal support to students (mentees) on an individual basis.
2. Helping students overcome homesickness. Establishing rapport between teachers, students and parents.
3. Recognizing their talent and interests; thereby encouraging students to par�cipate in co-curricular and extra
4. Monitoring a�endance and behavioural aspects of every student.
5. Iden�fying weak areas and working out remedies helping students thereby taking their complete care.
Mentor is someone who allows us to see the hope inside ourselves and empowers us to see a possible future and
makes us believe that it can be obtained.

BEACON - Ins�tute Social Responsibility
The South Indian Educa�on Society has taken a signiﬁcant step forward by making social responsibility a part of
the educa�on process. It was decided that each college in the group would adopt a village for its overall
development and to empower the villagers. The SIES College of Arts, Science & Commerce, Sion West, took the ﬁrst
ini�a�ve by adop�ng a small tribal village in 2013 followed by the SIES College of Management Studies adop�ng
another in 2014. The SIES Graduate School of Technology, Nerul has extended the ini�a�ve further by treading a
diﬀerent path. As part of the Ins�tute, Social Responsibility ini�a�ve taken by the South Indian Educa�on Society,
provides voca�onal training to the underprivileged sec�ons of the society. The target group is orphans, street
children, school dropouts and similar individuals between the age group of 18-30 years.
Beacon oﬀers seven trades; viz Carpentry, Welding, Metal Turning, Sewing & Tailoring, Plumbing, Electrician,
Screen Prin�ng and Computer Operator, each having a course dura�on of six months including a founda�on course
for all. The courses focus more on prac�cal hands-on training with minimum required theore�cal background. Each
candidate is further exposed to the basics of grooming, banking skills, computer skills, spoken English, Mathema�cs,
as part of the founda�on course. At the end of the training, the students are placed with service providers,
contractors or in industries for internships.
ReConnect is SIES GST’s Alumni Associa�on registered in the year 2012, which provides a pla�orm for the
ex-students to interact with the Ins�tute. Reconnect has led to the forma�on of a closely knit community which
promotes, supports and inspires the current and future alumni of the college in their endeavours. Reconnect is the
annual gathering of SIES GST Alumni, which is held on the ﬁrst Saturday of January every year. Being the ins�tu�on's
most loyal supporters who shape the future of the college in a pivotal manner, ReConnect helps the alumni to engage
with the students and staﬀ on a regular basis.

ENHANCING LEARNING THROUGH CO-CURRICULAR ACTIVITIES
The SIES Graduate School of Technology believes in building a rela�onship between academics and co curricular
ac�vi�es to build a strong personality and an unshakable character of a student. Organizing such ac�vi�es entails
students to have the courage to extend the range of their experiences, their imagina�ons, their comfort zones and
venture beyond those comfortable limits from �me to �me. These ac�vi�es not only supplement the curriculum gap
but also help students develop skills to work in a team and also slide into leadership roles when needed. It also
provides a pla�orm for teachers to engage with the students outside the classroom as a facilitator building stronger
bonds and the camaraderie which every student will enjoy.
All this is achieved by providing the students with a structured student body which plans and executes all the
ac�vi�es in a disciplined manner. The student council along with all the student clubs like literary, Music, Dance,
coding etc, and professional chapters like IEEE, IETE, SAE, CSI, ISTE, EDC IPI, ISHRAE at department level work in close
coordina�on to organize extra-curricular and co-curricular ac�vi�es. The NSS wing of the college takes care of
inculca�ng social values amongst students.
SIESGST provides all the students with a pla�orm that is dynamic, compe��ve and yet encouraging enough for
the holis�c growth of the students.
From securing ﬁrst rank in ﬁnal year engineering exams in the University to winning second prize in inter
university project compe��on and from bagging gold medals at na�onal level sports to being awarded for a socially
ac�ve and responsible NSS unit, the students of GST have been at the forefront of every ﬁeld.
"True guidance is like a small torch in a dark forest. It does not show you everything at
once, but gives just enough light for the next step to be safe."
- Swami Vivekanand
The Student Council is formed at the beginning of each year, consis�ng of the ac�ve members of the ins�tute. It
forms a link between the ins�tute administra�on and the students. The Council ensures holis�c development of

Industrial visits have its own importance in shaping the career of a student who is pursuing a
professional (graduation) degree. It is considered as a part of college curriculum and the objective of
industrial visit is to provide students an insight regarding the internal working of companies.
Theoretical knowledge is alone not enough for making a good professional career. It thus aims to
provide an exposure and practical perspective to the working world. It shows the students a glimpse of
their life once they complete their graduation.
Industrial visit is considered as one of the tactical methods of teaching. The main reason behind it is
that it lets students know things practically through interactions with the industry personnels, their
working methods and employment practices. Moreover, it gives them an exposure from an academic
point of view. They also provide students a good opportunity to gain full awareness about industrial
practices. Every year SIES GST organizes an industrial visit to Rajasthan, Bangalore, Mysore, and many
other places for the students of third year from all branches of engineering in the month of December
