One of the best colleges in Coimbatore

Posted on 04 Apr' 18 by Aravind
Batch of Jan. 1, 2020 | BE Mechanical Engineering
We are the first college to be started in Coimbatore and now it stands third. We have a good placement and life here is too much affordable. The infrastructures are not so good especially the hostel. It's a TEQIP funded institute which is developing every year. The total money you will spend in a year will be about Rs.50,000 including food, accommodation and college fees. Finally a good institute in Tamilnadu to learn engineering.

We learn everything ourselves, the college has it's own name among companies and other colleges. You will survive anywhere on this planet after being a GCTian. GCT will never let you be in your Comfort zone. Infrastructure and facilities are two main cons. in GCT.

what is the procedure to join in Biotechnology course in 2020

S G 6th Feb, 2020
Hi Aspirant,
You did not mention whether you want to join an undergraduate or a postgraduate course.
If you want to pursue an undergraduate course in biotechnology then you can do B.Sc in Biotechnology or B.Tech in Biotechnology. It depends on your choice.
Similarly, if you want to pursue a postgraduate course in biotechnology then you can do M.Sc in biotechnology or M.Tech in biotechnology.
For B.Sc Biotechnology: A minimum aggregate score of 50% (45% for SC/ST candidates) at both secondary and higher secondary (classes X and XII). And biology, physics and chemistry as the main subject at 10+2 level, with a minimum aggregate score of 60% in this three.
For B.Tech Biotechnology, you need to achieve a proper rank in entrance exams like WBJEE, JEE Main or another entrance exam in different colleges. And then you can get admission through counselling.
For M.Sc Biotechnology, you again need an appropriate aggregate in your undergraduate level. And for getting admission to some colleges, you need to achieve a good rank in the entrance exam.
For M.Tech Biotechnology, you need to achieve a proper rank in entrance exam like GATE. Aur you can appear in some admission test in some colleges.
Good Luck! Hope it will help you!

which college is good placement gct , kumaraguru ,ssn

saad ali 26th Jan, 2020

Hello,

Going with rankings, SSN is ranked higher compared to the other two. Placements are totally dependent on the person and differ accordingly.

SSN is quite great in terms of placements and gives a good competence to CEG and PSG college. There are a lot of product based company in the recruiters list with packages ranging from 4 LPA to 39 LPA. Few bright students even get offers from international firms with packages as high as 80 LPA.

Hope it helps!!

Civil engineering. 194
Electronic and electrical engineering. 196
Mechanical engineering. 196


For schedule caste

Computer science and engineering. 185
Electronic and instrumentation engineering. 179
Civil engineering. 184

Just go through these data and check with your categories whether you are getting or not. But you have very less chances from general categories by seeing previous year cutoff
