"Aligned with the philosophy of Sir Syed Ahmed Khan, the Aligarh Muslim University Old Boys Association (AMUOBA) had established the SSUET, the first engineering university in the private sector where ideas are encouraged and all resources mobilized to promote research, innovation and development activities while special incentives offered to the faculty members for research work so that they may pursue it with full concentration and dedication," he added. 

Chancellor Jawaid Anwar informed that besides new programmes, the university has introduced new engineering and science departments keeping the present day challenges in mind
