Moral and value based education leads to all round development
The library is the sanctorum of any educational institute and at ACROPOLIS, utmost importance has been given to the construction and maintenance of a well stocked library catering to the needs of the faculty and students of all its engineering branches and computer domain.
The libraries at both the campuses are collectively stocked with over 55,000 books, magazines, reference articles, archives, encyclopedic collections, and about 300 references & textbooks, periodicals and national & international journals. 10 digital library subscriptions fro BE and 5 for MBA have been added for the benefit of the students.
Presently it has got over 15000 books and 40 journals (both National & International) and number of magazines from different disciplines. Computer generated records make it further easier. The library would take steps in joining worldwide group for Engineers like IEEE (Institute of Electronics and Electrical Engineers) and other groups and will promote students to take part in events and public relations and E-Library is under process of establishment and will be operational from next session
The Scholar’s Library is an initiative taken by the management and faculties of the Acropolis group, for providing assistance to talented but financially weak students.
Through this library, such students get text books and course material for all subjects they study for their regular course. These books are made available to the needy students at the very beginning of the session so that they can keep up with their classes and lectures.
As a supplement to formal classroom teaching we also organize group discussions on wide ranging topics cutting across formal course outline. These GDs are organized in a room specially designed for the purpose, with a capacity of 20 students. The discussions are conducted with a strict academic point of view and under faculty surveillance.
There are well-equipped and well-maintained laboratories for all engineering and computer departments to give the students appropriate practical training to meet requirements of their concerned fields.
The computer department of the institute has state-of-the-art equipment relating to various subjects of computer science and information technology. The department continuously updates its labs with the most modern laboratory facilities.
