Academics & Faculty

Needs more practicality, versatility and broad-mindedness to be fit to be called engineering faculty. Many faculty members do not know proper english and therefore it implies it is closed for externals.

International Exposure

For Engineering there is no scope of International Exposure as the only perceived ROI is placements. Only conference tie-ups with various companies of India which happen to be mass recruiters.
