SOCIAL ATMOSPHERE
7/10
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.

HOSTELS & FOOD
8/10
On-campus accomodation is easily available and is of a good standard. The food is primarily South Indian, and not of great quality. Off-campus accomodations are reasonable, too, in Adyar and Kotturpuram areas. Many restaurants are available within a 2km radius.

INFRASTRUCTURE & TRANSPORTATION
8/10
Great campus, well equipped classrooms. Well within the city, and well connected by public transport. The labs are also quite state of the art, with facilities like the Ramanujan COmputing Centre and the Taramani Bioprocess Lab.

PLACEMENTS & ALUMNI NETWORK
7/10
Students get internships at top companies in Chennai and nationally. Almost all students who want to go through campus placements get placed, as Anna University (main campus) is the most prestigious engineering institution in Tamil Nadu, after IIT, Madras. Average salary is probably around 7-8 Lakh. Alumni netowrk, though large, is rather inactive.

FEES AND SCHOLARSHIP
7/10
Scholarships are minimal. Students bring their own scholarships like NTSE and national and state boards' scholarships, apart from prestigious fellowships like JNCASR or TIFR fellowships.

FOREIGN EXCHANGE & INTERNATIONAL EXPOSURE
7/10
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.

ACADEMICS & FACULTY
9/10
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.

  • Student housing definitely needs improvement at Anna University.
  • The fee for student housing is less, but facilities definitely need to be improved.

INFRASTRUCTURE & TRANSPORTATION
7/10
  • Anna University campus is huge.
  • Class rooms are average. However, we have projectors and screens in every class.
  • Electricity problems prevail in India, so can't blame the university for that I guess.
  • Most students use public buses to commute. We are allowed to buy a bus pass at subsidized prices.

PLACEMENTS & ALUMNI NETWORK
5/10
  • Under most circumstances, we will have to find internships through our own sources.
  • Companies like TCS, Cognizant, Wipro, Accenture, etc. hire students from Anna University. This would be good for departments such as Information technology, computer science, etc. and definitely not for Department of Biotechnology.
  • Professors may help us in finding internships. We can request them to interview us for a research position in their lab, perhaps.

FEES AND SCHOLARSHIP
