As The Economic Times reports, ‘A million engineers in India struggling to get placed in an extremely challenging market.’ But SMRI bring Sports Engineering as a value-added course for engineers to quick start their career

Sports Engineering is a growing technology-based sector, which supports and augments the growth of sports. In India, Sports Engineering is going to create numerous business opportunities and employment opportunities. The Sports Engineering course of SMRI promises the engineering graduates a promising career.

The Advanced Diploma in Sports Engineering (ADSE) programme is intended for students wishing to pursue a career in the expanding sports-related industry sector. The courses are broad-based and cover Sports Science, Design, Technology, and Engineering Science.

Advanced Diploma in Sports Engineering (ADSE)  Program aims to provide you with an in-depth understanding of scientific and engineering disciplines related to the holistic context of modern sports technology, such as mechanical, materials, manufacturing, aerospace, electrical, chemical, biomedical and construction engineering, sports science, business, textile technology, media studies and mathematics.

This program is specifically tailored for you to understand, and take the lead in, the sports industry or sports organisations in a global context. It prepares you directly for joining the global sports industry and international sports organisations, by exposing you to problem-solving, product innovation and hands-on experience in various areas of sports technology. This distinguishes the Certified Sports Engineer programme from traditional undergraduate sports engineering courses, which are focused on engineering theory and show the application to sports only by example.

The program structure will provide learning experiences for you to acquire and apply the critical knowledge of sports equipment design and development and concepts across core disciplines of sports technology.

The program is purposely international in character as it aims to provide you with advanced technical and generic capabilities which will enhance your chances of employment in the global sports industry.

Recently, SMRI has developed FORMULA EX, the unique pedagogy by combining LEARN – PLAY – WORK – INVENT, the basic foundation of FORMULA 1 RACING. SMRI’s Pedagogy Development Team which includes Industry Experts, Subject Experts, Instruction Designers, Teachers and Alumni has successfully integrated the 4 elements of FORMULA 1 into SMRI’s academic system and developed the trial version of FORMULA EX in 2018.
