ACADEMICS & FACULTY: A rigorous program with 40% of life science and 60% of chemical engineering component. The faculty are very good, with most having completed PhD and/or Post-Doc from top Indian research institutes or good schools in US and UK. As a result, the acads are really strong, and assessments are thought-provoking.
FOREIGN EXCHANGE & INTERNATIONAL EXPOSURE: International exposure is dependent on individual initiative, but the faculty support it by connecting students with universities abroad. Every year, about 10% students travel internationally for some project or the other. The language of communication is English, and the faculty are all very well versed in the language.
SOCIAL ATMOSPHERE: Most students are primarily South Indians, especially Tamilians. About 10% of the students are from other parts of the country. Not a party school at all. Many restaurants, pubs present nearby.

ACADEMICS & FACULTY: The class time starts from 8.30 and gets over around by 4.30. We always have 3 assessments before the end semester that also includes assignments. There is no other media course in my campus. The quality of teaching is good anyhow, whatever you learn outside the campus gives you more knowledge and confidence. 
FOREIGN EXCHANGE & INTERNATIONAL EXPOSURE: Only top 3 students of the departments will be given an opportunity to study in foreign university with scholarship. Language of teaching and language spoken will be bilingual (both english and tamil).
CLUBS & ASSOCIATIONS: Cultural clubs are a big platform for students, the students will be given full freedom to initiate their ideas in clubs. Sports is also another best part of my college. The cultural  and sports events which occur every year is a good platform for students to expose their talents other than studies.
SOCIAL ATMOSPHERE: There is no such political, economic and religion problems in campus. The ragging is strictly prohibited, even a vechile named Anti-ragging vechile will surround the college all the time for the safety of students. Boys and girls are free to talk to each other, there is no such restriction. Alcohol use is strictly prohibited in and around campus, there is no bars/pubs around college campus.
