Bengaluru: Dayananda Sagar Academy of Technology and Management (DSATM), which celebrated its first decade, is showered with great achievements – considered to be rare in the professional education sector. Topping the over half a dozen unique accomplishments is the recent ranking by National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC). The NAAC ranking is considered significant. DSATM has been accorded the A+ which is the second highest grade and is the only institution in the State to reach this honour and among very few nationally.
DSATM on Kanakapura Road is among 219 engineering colleges affiliated to Visvesvaraya Technological University (VTU) and is part of the reputed Dayananda Sagar Institutions. Higher education institutions in India are graded as A/B/C/D based on parameters set by NAAC. These grades correspond to performance levels of very good, good, satisfactory, and unsatisfactory. For each parameter, an overall score is calculated based on the weight age that provides GPA. as there are 7 parameters, their 7 GPAs are incorporated to calculate the final outcome of NAAC assessment, that is CGPA.
Speaking on this unique achievement Rohan Prem Sagar - Board of Governors, Dayananda Sagar Institutions said, "DSATM which is ranked under A+ is grouped under 3.26-3.50 band; which is the second best in the ranking levels. For students, employers and the community, academic partners, government agencies and other R&D centers a high NAAC ranking indicates the soundness of its governance, academic delivery, among several other critical parameters. DSATM is now ready to
enlarge its operations across its functions to give better outcomes to students and faculty. DSATM has done exceedingly well looking at its overall achievements as per various rankings/grades announced by national agencies/government/ industry bodies." At this rate I am confident that DSATM would soon occupy the top ranks in the State and the country, he added.
