National Service Scheme
The main aim of conducting National Service Scheme program in Shadan College of Engineering and Technology is to create Personality Development through Community Service. This program is to motivate and encourage the social welfare thoughts in the students and to provide service to the society without any prejudice. NSS volunteers are dedicated to this work to ensure that every one in our society who is needy gets every possible help from them so that they can also enhance their standards and lead a life of dignity in the society with all of us. In doing so, the volunteers themselves learn a lot like how to struggle and how to lead a happy life in the extreme scarcity of resources and so on.
The National Service Scheme is personality development through social service or community service. This program aims at inculcating social welfare thoughts among the students by providing service to the society without any prejudice.
The college has an NSS unit, affiliated to Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University (JNTU), Hyderabad with an objective to develop the attitude of social service among the professional students and to make them into responsible citizens.

The symbol for the NSS has been based on the giant Rath Wheel of the world famous Konark Sun Temple (The Black Pagoda) situated in Orissa, India. The wheel portrays the cycle of creation, preservation and release and signifies the movement in life across time and space. The symbol thus stands for continuity as well as change and implies the continuous striving of NSS for social change.
The NSS Symbol is embossed on the badge. The eight bars in the wheel represent the 24 hours of a day. The red colour indicates that the volunteer is full of young blood that is lively, active, energetic and full of high spirit. The navy blue colour indicates the cosmos of which the NSS is a tiny part, ready to contribute its share for the welfare of the mankind.
NSS was formally launched on 24th September 1969, the birth centenary year of the Father of the Nation. Therefore, 24 September is celebrated every year as NSS Day with appropriate programmes and activities.
