Insightful and worth every penny.

Placements: The internships are mandatory and a part of the course curriculum. The college assists in setting up the internships for all the 60 students.

Our college provides a great course curriculum but has average placements.

The perfect place to learn and grow.

Placements: Well, we had some non-profit organisations that came for the placements. It is not necessary that you would be paid as per your expectation straight away. The starting was as basic as Rs. 15,000 per month. The students were mostly hired for the field work rather than into the research and operational process.
