About IQAC at SSTM

As per National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) guidelines every accredited institution has to establish an Internal Quality Assurance Cell (IQAC) as a post-accreditation quality sustenance measure. Since quality enhancement is a continuous process, the IQAC becomes a part of the institution's system and works towards realization of the goals of quality enhancement and sustenance. The prime task of the IQAC is to develop a system for conscious, consistent and catalytic improvement in the overall performance of institution. SSTM was accredited with “A” grade by NAAC in 2015 for 5 years with 3.19 score. IQAC established then continues to strive for the betterment of processes and setup. The NAAC team visited the SSTM Campus from 10-13 Dec, 2014.
