Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi inaugurated ‘Digital India’ with the launch of 'Digital India Week' campaign in the national capital, with a view to sensitize people of our country through the Digital India Programme. Digital India is an Umbrella Programme covering many departments. It weaves together a large number of ideas and thoughts into a single, comprehensive vision so that each of them is seen as part of a larger goal.

Being a proponent of technology and digitization, SNDT WU is diligent about the digital literacy and digital empowerment of present and future students. In pursuance of this, the University has created a road map for the digital empowerment of its stakeholders and has completed the following:
