ASME, SAE and the Big-Data Research Center of the college support the career needs of the students. The IEEE students’ chapter and IEEE Women in engineering on the campus are vibrant in connecting to breakthrough technical information and put them in an open platform for regular updates. Students’ passion for robotics is commendable. National Cadet Corps (NCC), National Service Scheme (NSS) and Youth Red Cross (YRC) are also offered for the holistic development of the students.

 

Our college offers value-added courses like JAVA, PCB Design, Robotics and Embedded system interfacing with Arduino, Rapid prototyping – 3D printing, Drone, Machine learning, Android applications development, Internet of Things and Robotics to make the students technically and practically strong.
