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 Exhange & International Exposure Know more
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.
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.
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.
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.
Schedule is as per 8.30 AM to 4.30 PM. But it doesnt work that way.
The quality is good. We have experienced faculties in my college - who are - few, dedicated, make awesome atmosphere while teaching. The college provides freedom to the students in working on projects, learning new things, industry visits, college tours, functions and culturals etc. we have the right liberty to make our decisions - which is very good in the students point!

ACADEMICS & FACULTY:
Subjects are very relevant to the course at Anna University.
We have three internal tests before every final semester exam.
75% attendance is mandatory to be able to take the final semester exam.
Professors in Anna University are well-trained on the subject. I respect all my professors who have put in a lot of effort in teaching us. There are some people I would still go back and visit once in a while.
