SSSS, Pune enables sports enthusiasts and students with an opportunity to explore a promising career in this emerging field. The unique undergraduate program aims to nurture students with practical skills, creative thinking, and leadership qualities to turn their passion into a fulfilling and rewarding career. The undergraduate course is focused on varied branches of sports science like physiology, psychology, biomechanics, and nutrition with management skills to serve across the sports industry. Post course completion, graduates will have diverse and exciting career opportunities in sports science, sports coaching, fitness, strength & conditioning, sports performance analysis, sports psychology, and sports technology.
Highlighting the institute’s pedagogy, Dr. Nayana Nimkar Director, SSSS said, “It is a common presumption among parents and students that academic learning isn’t necessary for a professional career in athletics or sports. However, in an ongoing quest to achieve high-performance standards, the demand for expertise in Sports and Exercise Science is increasing globally. As per a recent report by GroupM ESP, India is considered to be a ‘Sporting Nation in The Making’ and is likely to reach the value of $100 billion by 2027. Our newly launched undergraduate program will shape the future of sports specialists and is in alignment with the industry requirements and the increasing demand for trained professionals.”
