Batch of 2020 | B.Tech Mechanical Engineering
College life: College life is good.......there is a good interaction between all students and their seniors. Infrastructure: Infrastructure is not so good at the moment. The construction of buildings is going on now. There is very less greenery in the campus. Hostel: Hostel is the only thing that is constructed well( I think so). Mess: This is better than other govt college in tamil nadu. Faculty: There are good faculties....But some among them know the topic....but aren't able to convey it to the students properly.....
