Classrooms and Auditoriums

Classroom sessions at SZABIST are quite different from other professional university setups. Teachers pay individual attention and are on first-name basis with students, thanks to the limited number of candidates selected purely on merit. Instructors encourage more participative lectures rather than just a monologue. Students utilize various visual aids for presentations and are always on their toes because of regular unannounced quizzes, assignments and the monthly one-hour tests. All classrooms are air-conditioned and are equipped with overhead projectors, wall-mounted screens, white boards, multimedia projectors, PCs and internet connectivity.
