Student Orientation The Placement & Training Department believes that success has to begin first with oneself. The objective of the P&T Department is to identify the strengths and weaknesses of the students and accordingly orient them in the right direction.
Our focus is to ensure that the skill-sets are fully utilized by conducting rigorous counselling sessions on a one-to-one basis. These sessions help students deal with their weaknesses in an effective manner. Students are put though a series of psychometric, technical and communication tests to match industry standards.
Student orientation is an effort to generate quality engineers with proper skill-sets so that they are transformed into responsible, enthusiastic and confident individuals to face the challenges of the corporate world.
Industry InteractionThe P&T Department has a very strong network of companies that regularly visit the campus. The P&T dept. interacts with various industries in order to realize the changing trends and prepare students accordingly. Profiles of the students are compiled based on industry requirements and records are maintained and made readily available to the companies as and when the requirement arises.
The department has been instrumental in tie-ups with companies like TCS for the Campus Connect Programmes; Wipro Workforce Development programmes etc.., to carry forward the academic activities.
