SCMS Group of Educational Institutions has always taken pride in the wide network of alumni who are occupying coveted positions in various esteemed organisations in India and abroad.Since the inception of the institution, the role of alumni through its growth and development is quite significant. As the institution prospered, the association also grew in size with a formal structure.
SCMS Alumni Association is established with various chapters at Bangalore, Chennai, Delhi, Dubai, Hyderabad, Kochi, Kolkata and Mumbai where alumni meets are conducted regularly. Such meets provide a great opportunity for alumni to reconnect with classmates, network with fellow alumni and meet their faculty members which in turn strengthen the ties between SCMS and alumni across different parts of the globe.
It is not just because of nostalgia that the SCMS alumni get connected with the alma-mater, it is much more than that. Whether it’s involvement in Governing Bodies, interaction with students, final placements, support on projects, or returning as faculty, SCMS has always believed that alumni have a key role to play in the development of the institution.

The SCMS Alumni Chapters spread across various locations such as Bangalore, Chennai, Delhi, Dubai, Hyderabad, Kochi, Kolkata and Mumbai facilitate networking among the alumni. Alumni meets are organized every year at different locations in India and abroad so that alumni get an opportunity to meet their old batch mates and faculty members to share their knowledge and experiences with them. The meets are much like family reunions. During such meets, alumni gather with their families, to reminisce and reconnect with the SCMS family.
The institution always loves to welcome the alumni back to campus.
