    The only complain i have from the management is just about the strictness they have. They don't allow much freedom to the students which is very important for the overall development of the student.  This is my only concern with the management.

    Entrance Exam

    I got in through the EAMCEt entrace test and scored a rank of under 25k. If you get better marks then you will get concession in tuition fee. you can also get in through the management quota but you have to pay a higher fee for that.


    If you stay in hostel you have to pay a total fee of Rs 1.5 lakhs. The college also does offer scholarship upto 50% based on your score.


    Yeah there are a number of companies visiting our campus. 80% of students got placement every year. Some are getting multiple offers. Tech mahindra, wipro, amazon, infosys and many other companies visit our campus. The average package is around 3laks

    Hostel and Facilities

    Hostels in my college were very good. they will give rooms for different, for 1st year's one hostel, for 2nd years one hostel, for 3rd&4th years one hostel.they will provide AC rooms for who wants. the hostel fee was very less. they will provide very good food.they will food menu .they will prepare food menu based on students decision


    In my college, senior students will help a lot for juniors .they don't show any partiality like senior-junior partiality. they will talk very closely. the alumni network and at all will be good.


    In this university, all of the faculty is learned. Most of them use English as a miode of communication. The faculty is very punctual and very professional and well known. staff will clarify the doubts clearly. they will encourage the students for doing projects and at all.

    Campus Life

    In this college no one can show partiality, all will behave like friends and brothers and sisters. they will conduct so many extracurricular events, and they will provide prizes also for who are all winners.in my college labs and at all will very good. they constructed very well and they maintain very properly.


    Exams happens very frequently and  the quality of evaluation is not that great. I also feel some bias towards top ranking students.


    A lot of companies will come and provide jobs and internships for all students. this university will well prepare the students for all interviews and all things.

    Loans and Scholarships

    In my college, they will provide a scholarship in starting based upon entrance exam and groups percentage. thereafter based upon your CGPA. they will provide 100% scholarship for under sports quota also.

    Overall education, Extracurricular, culture, Placements and facilities at college is so awesome. College provide world class facilities at lowest prices. Management provide enough facilities and opportunities ato study and gain knowledge at a larger level.

    Entrance Exam

    For admission, the college accepts the score of JEE Mains or KLUEEE. Other than this you not have compartment in any of the subjects in class 12th and your aggregate should be 60% or  more.


    Fee is the reason I joined this college just 1.2 lakhs per year. For hostel and mess food, quality is good although you can't expect it like home food but it is eatable. Charge for mess along with hostel is 60k per year in which 20k for mess. Mess fee is variable if exceeded u have to pay more else you can get return too if lesser amount is used


    Over 85% of the students get placed in top companies and the averag package is also around 4-6 lakhs. Over 100 companies visit every year.  HCl, TCS, Tech Mahindra are regular and Athena, SRM Technologies, WIPRO and CSS corp and many more companies visited for on campus placements

    Hostel and Facilities

    Being a day scholar i dont have much about the hostel or the hostel facilities provided by the college. 


    Yes, the college has a very strong alumni network. According to me Alumni and senior students are connected to the college. They provide guidance and helpful advice for current batches.They are also helpful to have the current batches in industrial visits. The thing i liked the best about the college was that they even used to refer students and ask them for suggestions while preparing for the next year. I hardly think any college does that.


    Faculties were well capable and qualified. Almost 80% of the faculties holds Ph.D and rest were enrolled or part time pursuing. Faculties are well helping and focused to every individual. They deliver stuff in such way that every one tend to capture it at first instance such brief and clarity they have.

    Campus Life

    Campus life is very fantastic and full of adventure. Gender ratio is almost equal. As a whole. All the activities is done whievere is mentioned above. Being an university campus its mandatory. These activity are done every semester and some of them are mandatory for students to complete in order to get degree certificate



    Internship to other factories is a essential one in the course syllabus it is included in the course, every student have to do internship and one project during his curriculum my internship experience in kalasalingam is so great.

    Loans and Scholarships

    The college has a tie up withn Union bank of india and thus you can ask for a loan from them at some low interest rate. Yeah, top three students from every branch get scholarship from college of different amount.
