Symbiosis between placement cell and the Department help the students to achieve the best of the Jobs of their careers. Proper Industrial interaction is given to the students by organizing National level workshops in the Campus. In those events eminent personalities from industry and educational institutions were invited to the campus for student’s interaction and guidance. The students had presented their talents in the form of practical projects and papers, which were seen and assessed by the invited personalities; they also had an interaction directly with the students in which they suggested measures to further improve the quality of the creativity.
Exposure as well as training is provided to the students for advanced studies and various guest lecturers and Mock campus interviews are conducted time to time to facilitate the students and create awareness. Industry visits and practical projects are also encouraged by the department in various sectors; students are taken out to industries for practical understanding of the technology. To name a few, visits are made on frequent basis to organizations such as ACE components, JVS Electronics, Embuzz Technologies, and ISRO etc.
The students of the department have proven the quality of education provided to them by receiving awards in National as well as International level conferences. They have also received ranks (In top 07) on state level in the Anna University results of engineering examinations. To add on the feathers in the cap students are also placed in reputed companies such as Tata Consultancy services, CTS, L&T Infotech, Tech Mahindra, Zoho Corporation, Infoview, I-Net Sensiple, IGATE etc.,
The Department has a very rich history of its providing technical education in the field of Engineering and its achievements in a small span of fourteen years of establishment. With the support of the excellent Management of the Institute and the strong backbone of the Faculty we place the department in one of the best in the Institute.
