Student volunteers will help incoming candidates to engage with the bank representatives present on-campus on the admissions day. Silicon’s excellent track record of placements for graduating students make it easy for new students to get loans from the banks.

New Students Orientation

Newly admitted students undergo an orientation and induction program, which prepares them for a successful college experience at Silicon.

Packed with expert talks and interactive sessions, the program gives students comprehensive information on their upcoming four years of academic and campus life.

Current students and illustrious alumni share their experiences and interact with the new batches during the program. A guided campus tour familiarises them with all the facilities, resources, and student clubs. Heritage tours around the city introduces students from outside Odisha to the culture of the state.

Students also hear from the Chairman, Principal, Deans, Director, Heads of Departments, Faculty-In-Charges, and Faculty Coordinators. Every 15 students get a Faculty Advisor (FA) who becomes their mentor for the entire duration of their stay at Silicon. Students get introduced to their FAs and peers in their groups, and other Siliconites.

The induction and orientation program is designed in line with the AICTE guidelines.

For Parents

The Silicon team interacts closely with the parents all through the four years of their child’s education. Parents can log in to an ERP application to stay informed of their child’s academic progress.

Parents will get the email and phone numbers of the Faculty Advisors who will be the mentor and guide for their child for all four years. The FA, assigned to the students on the orientation day, will be the single point of contact for the parents.
