Career counseling is the process of guiding students on the path to self-discovery and self-realization. We, at SPS-SN, work patiently with the students, support them in weeding out self doubts, and make concrete decisions based on their interests.
"Aspire" sessions are organized across all branches wherein, we invite resource persons from different areas of specialization, and alumni students volunteerily conduct sessions for their juniors.
Individual career guidance sessions are also conducted by in-house subject experts.
