Join this college only if you know Tamil or else it's hard to learn.

Placements: I hope the placements took about six times per year. Still, I can even say because I'm in the 2nd Year. Maybe, I'll post again after I complete my degree. Most of my seniors get jobs in well-reputed companies. The salary is below 18K per month, so it's bad. We have a placement cell, and it's big to hold a placement.

Infrastructure: The college is good to study. There are no Wi-Fi facilities in the college and hostel. The classrooms are good for us, but I'll rate 3/5. We have a library, and it is average. No one ...
