It is a kind of tool that mainly achieves competitive advantage and allow the candidate to compare their own strengths to t he weakness of their competitor. This technique can be helpful in project management, corporate strategy, engineering planning and many more. To become a strong leader, it is important to make decisions between various options that each has their own pros and cons.
An individual can analyze the internal factors (strengths and weaknesses) together with the external factors (Opportunities and Threats). SWOT analysis sharpens your focus onto the strategy that will work the best for your organization or projects.
The strategic planning process of an Engineering College must begin with SWOT analysis in which strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats of the College are analyzed with high rigor and vigor. For an effective strategic plan self realization of these four components are essential. There are certain elements of SWOT that are followed in Arya College.
- Strength: We follow certain procedures and set of principles that act as a strength of the College.

- Weakness: There are certain weaknesses that include greater number of behavioral problems in students, Students dissatisfaction with some areas, Inter-campus communication, Faculty recruitment, Research culture, Research infrastructure, Environmental Management, etc.
- Opportunities: Several opportunities are available to the students from the perspective of college that includes Development of leaders in engineering, Interdisciplinary growth across departments, Practice-based research, Increased research funding, Joint Research Programs, Expand and improve the effectiveness of marketing of the College, Increase and strengthen internal collaborations and external collaborations, Focus on excellence with an emphasis on areas in which the College should grow and so on.
- Threats: There are certain threats to the college environment or curriculum that includes Poor student enrollment, Reduction in qualified applicants, Saturation of engineering education market, Unchecked student behavior, Inability to recruited faculty, Reduced research funding, Declining resources from the state and increasing dependence on tuition revenue.
