For Personal and corporate exposure this college was provided the a better platform to improve my personal and corporate skills because faculties are there in very supportive in nature and have lots of experience to motivate the to improve their students very vast playground are situated in middle of the college infrastructure that provides the various sports like cricket, badminton, and basketball in which we will always engage. Talking about placement the college has various industrial linkages like Mahindra & Mahindra, Ashok Leyland, TCS and Various IT sector companies that take part in the campus placement and provide a corporate exposure to the students.

The college I opted for my B.Tech , situated near Chennai highway famous for its core engineering branches is well connected with the city ,faculty were good, good infrastructure lab equipment , library was not up to the mark . Being situated in city provides student with facilities of doing extra course to strengthen their curricular and co-curricular segment.

I have recently lost my Convocation certificate while traveling, I have applied with the college for duplicate. Can I get it at the earlie

Nikhil Pareek 24th Jul, 2019

Hello Sandeep, 

It is not a big trouble if you have lost your convocation certificate. You simply need to complete some formalities at your college(if they believe in formalities) and then by charging with some extra amount (if applicable), they will provide you with another certificate but it takes time of about 7-10 days in general but different colleges have different processing time, you could get it very soon.

Hope it helped you..

I belongs to oc Muslim minority I got 293 in neet marks can i get management seat quota in karnataka or Kerala with low fees below 5 lakhs

MOHAMED RAYAN 13th Jun, 2019

Hello Syeda, 

The marks you have scored are pretty low to get a government qouta medical seat. Even with reservations, it is pretty difficult for you to get a medical seat. If you are willing to wait and take chances, you might get a medicak seat worth 7 lakhs or so in the later rounds of counseling. You still can try for other courses like BDS. 


All the best
