SREC, established in 2002, offers diverse UG and PG programs in engineering and management with core values as Innovation, Creativity and Entrepreneurial Mindset. To establish entrepreneurial product development culture in the campus, the institute identified other core values as Interdisciplinary Learning, Industry Relevance and Information Technology. It has been in the forefront imparting quality education to 3000+ students every year. The institute is conferred with autonomy by UGC and accredited by NAAC and all programs accredited by NBA. The institute has partnered with several national and international universities/institutes in the form of collaboration to elevate the educational standards and work in applied research.

To foster an innovative education ecosystem based on its core values, the institute established Center for Creative Cognition, Nest for Entrepreneurship in Science & Technology, Center for Design and Collaborator for Social Innovation. The institution has received significant research funding through substantial projects in diverse fields ranging from basic research to technology demonstration, sponsored by DST, AICTE, UGC and other organizations with 20 projects completed and 13 ongoing. Thus, the campus boosts an innovative ecosystem with educational thought leaders, engineering and management students, practicing designers and entrepreneurs.


Warangal is a smart city with rich historical and cultural heritage. It is also known for its magnificent lakes, temples and wildlife. Warangal/ Kazipet is well connected by rail and road to various places in the country; the nearest airport which is in Hyderabad is around 140 kms away. The participants can visit places of tourism during their stay.

Interests such as Thousand Pillars Temple, Bhadrakali Temple, Fort Warangal, Ramappa Temple and Lake, Laknavaram Lake, Pandavula Gutta, Kakatiya Zoological Park and Butterfly Park are all nearby.


The institution has established the Center for Creative Cognition in 2015 with a vision of becoming a leader empowering engineering achievement through applied cognitive research. The center offers five courses in the field of cognitive science (Foundations to Cognitive Science, Design Cognition, Cognitive Management, Computational Neuroscience and Psychology) as open electives to 300+ UG students each semester. The center aims to nurture new generation of engineers who are trained in a human-centered design approach. The thrust areas include: Design Cognition, Brain-Computer Interfaces, Computational Neuroscience, and Cognitive Capabilities of both Abled and Disabled. A major research project funded by DST was completed and five projects are ongoing. These projects also benefit 20 students who are actively involved through internships.

The center regularly conducts workshops, seminars, discussion forums and academic development programs to students and faculty from within and neighboring institutes to disseminate the knowledge as well as applications in cognitive science. The center conducts psychometric test to assess students' personality traits and their creativity / innovation. A Cognition Lab is also set up in the center for the purpose of learning about human cognitive abilities. The ongoing initiative 'Teacher empowerment through cognition' workshop series provides STEM teachers with experiential learning techniques based on ideas and methods from cognitive science.


Cognitive Science, the study of the mind, helps us to understand the processes involved in representing, retrieving and implementing knowledge from/to the outside world. This field is highly interdisciplinary and has immense scope and application in the field of technology creation, development and implementation, education, health, and social behavior. The field is evolving and expanding, especially in India, with new centers / departments being established, and many young researchers choosing this field.

The conference explores the emerging trends in cognitive science through lectures from distinguished invited speakers and presentations from young researchers. It aims to serve as a platform for intellectual dialog and provide insights into the applied aspects of Cognitive Science, thereby supporting cognitive researchers in carrying applied research and encourage researchers in other areas to examine the connection to cognitive science. The conference will inspire and benefit the young researchers as well as advance the knowledge
