Our institute is research-oriented so placement is somewhat irrelevant. Most of the students do PhD after getting their degrees, abroad (Mainly US, then Germany, Japan, Singapor etc.) or in India- even in our institute. There is an E-cell for educating students on start-ups who don't want to venture in academia. Also, our college hosts annual summer and winter internship program at which students can learn from hands-on experience in cutting-edge research methods under the supervision of faculty members.

Faculty :

There is more than 300+ professor in the college and lab assistants. The professor?s average age in the college is around 40. And most of the teachers have done Ph.d, or M.tech in their respective field. Teachers are helpful and help students in clearing their doubts anytime. They help students by involving them in projects and giving live examples. Some of the teachers have industry -experience and certification in their respective fields.
