Practice and practical application are crucial components of an education at the Ramaiah University of Applied Science and this is reflected in the well-planned facilities on our campuses.
The facilities give students the opportunity to master the skills necessary to develop a deep understanding of their fields. Students learn under the close guidance and supervision of faculty members and experts. The hands-on learning received in these labs give them a distinctive edge over their peers, helping them begin their careers as knowledgeable professionals.
