History of Placement Cell:

            Placement Cell is an integral part of our institution. Training activities are organized throughout the year in an effort towards preparing the prospective students for the campus selection programs. It was established in the year 1998 and was re-structured during 2003-04 to empower the student’s community in terms of providing training and securing part-time, full-time jobs. The objective of the placement cell is to encourage number of internships and create awareness among the students about the professional requirements of the employers and through the internships the students learn by experiencing the working culture of the companies and have a more mature understanding of the needs of the employers.

           The Placement cell of the institute is largely responsible and committed to the identification and catering to the need of training the students so that they are able to develop a good personality; and assist them to find right job and help them place in right companies before they pass out. We realize that in order to convert a raw student in to employable graduate, several behavioral attributes need to be addressed in addition to the development of technical skills. Some of the behavioral attributes are good communication skills, developing positive attitude towards work, understanding of moral and ethical values; to ensuring that students are aware of local and global economic scenario, to industrial and R&D trends, prediction of future technologies etc. A blend of such interpersonal skills, awareness and the essential technical training they get in their course of study makes them an ideal candidate suitable for employment and service to the nation.


Our Vision is to “To provide placement opportunities for the students in reputed organizations”.


Our Mission is “To bring out the hidden talent of the students and training the students to find their footings in the economic world”.

Activities of Placement Cell:

Ever since it came into existence, the cell has been conducting a number of Programmes aimed at developing and exhibiting the oratory skills, leadership Qualities, creativity and cognitive abilities of the students. It proves to be extremely useful to the students and enables them to shed their inhibitions and boost their Self- confidence. It plays a vital role in honing the soft skills of the students and thus facilitating them towards securing firm placement offers through campus recruitment Programmes.

Guidance and Counseling Centre

In the beginning of the academic year the counseling service was shifted on 15th October 2007 in the premises of our College.

The basic ethics of counseling is based on confidence and to maintain complete secrecy about the discussion between the counselor and the counselee. The service is intended to establish a relationship between the counselor and the students in which the former attempts to assist the later in achieving optimum educational, Personal, social and adjustment development.

Counseling service is not compulsory to the student.  The evening college students come for counseling from 9.00 a.m. to 1.00 p.m. While the day college students come for the counseling  from 1.30 p.m. to 5.00 p.m. regularly.

The students come for counseling with educational problem mostly related to language problems, lack of concentration, lack of memory, emotional problem and misunderstanding among the friendship and love affairs. Counselor adopts different therapies and study method to help the students in achieving academic competence. The follow-up service is maintained by follow-up interviews with the students regularly.

The counselor adopts a positive self-speech exercise as a great weapon for the students in emotionally disturbed areas.

The educational, emotional and sexual problems of the students are solved by therapeutic interviews behavior modification therapies, the therapeutic interview gives a chance to the students to talk about himself, his past, his wishes and aspirations. The process of talking brings new clarity of thought, relief from over-tension and a new objectivity.
