9/10
ACADEMICS & FACULTY
  • Our college offers design eccentric education. The course is structured in such a way that it enables the student to think about the design and engineering involved in the making of new product. It also teaches us how to market our newly designed product.
  • Faculties here are excellent in teaching as many of them are former IITM faculties. Infrastructure is the best in comparison to any government colleges (IITs and NITs). Since this is a new college so placements are not that much good last year(2014) the highest package was 15lacs and this year it is 9lacs(2015). In the coming years I am 100% sure that placements will be superb. Many of our students have got admission into world's top universities like Harvard,MIT and Stanford.
