Sri Shanmugha College of Engineering of Technology established a Women Empowerment Cell in 2013 to empower women and help them in all walks of life. With a view to taking up women’s issues and problems, the cell aims at creating awareness of their rights and duties. It also provides a platform for women to share their experiences and views regarding their status in the society and to suggest ways to improve and empower themselves. Aiming at intellectual and social upliftment of the female students, the cell stands for facilitating women’s empowerment through guest lectures, seminars, awareness programmes and other welfare activities.


To create awareness of the Women’s Right and to empower Women.


  • To promote a culture of respect and equality for female gender.
  • To inculcate entrepreneurial attitude among young girls, scientists at the earliest so that they can be ‘job givers’ rather than ‘job takers’.
  • To build self-confidence by enhancing their knowledge on the political, educational, economical and cultural aspects.
  • To analyse underlying causes through research to women discrimination and to generate awareness.
  • To encourage women as individuals in their own right.
