Life at KCT.

Wow! What a college I got to spend my life. One of the best Engineering colleges in South India and I hope people know that it is the 3 rd ranking college of Tamil Nadu and if the infrastructure is considered, then mostly the college will hold the 1st place for its beautiful buildings and facilities available. Almost 98% of the students gets placed and even I was lucky enough to attend 4 companies, 2 core companies and I got selected to the final round in one core and an IT MNC company. I got placed in Cognizant Technology Solutions and the interview was the easiest one. And no other college can offer a placement with CTS, the only MNC IT company in COIMBATORE. Hostels are good too. And food is the best part, unlimited and the dining hall is newly built one. Library and average internet facilities are also available. For Aeronautical Engineering, the lab facilities are excellent and so were the well-knowledged staffs. I loved the way my HOD sir, used to teach us. He was very friendly and being an autonomous college, exams are also easier if we studied at a week before the exams.

One of the great colleges in terms of infrastructure and lab facilities. College timings can be shortened. There is no much support for cultural activities, more encouragement should be given to it. Placement is awesome when it comes to IT , but in terms of core industries for mechanical and production, the placements are average. A fantastic college to learn to engineer with great industrial exposure.

is PSG r kct Coimbatore is best for curriculum and placements

Naufal Mohamed 10th Jan, 2020
I would go for PSG when it comes to PSG vs any other college in coimbatore. Infact PSG is the second best in the state next to CEG. The hefty fee might be an issue for some people. If you are financially sound and can afford to go there then definetly take the shot.
