Academic Building

SIIB is located in the hub of the IT industry, Rajiv Gandhi Infotech Park, Pune. The SIIB campus is central to the dynamic IT environment. The major companies such as Infosys, Cognizant, Wipro, etc. lend to the atmosphere. The campus is fully residential and provides excellent facilities to students.
