The need of the community is to provide quality higher education at an affordable cost.

The Institution provides ample opportunities for those students by providing free education through Kalaiarasi Educational Trust.

The specific objective of the Institution is to choose, educate, train and equip the students to meet the industrial needs. To fulfill the dream of the young aspirants of this economically backward community, the Institution is providing financial support through various scholarship schemes. These various scholarship schemes are provided by the well defined Admission policy framed and approved by the Governing Council from time to time.

Faculty members as individuals or teams also lend their helping hands in assisting students to enroll at our institution to pursue their higher education. In addition to their guidance, they are extending assistance in the form of books, transport fee and exam fee to the needy students.

The admitted students are provided with an ambience that facilitates effective teaching and learning processes for the development of critical thinking, effective communication and creativity. Student centric methodologies such as Experiential Learning and Participative Learning coupled with the implementation of ICT tools in teaching have improved the cognitive levels of students’ learning curve.

The Designers club, Self development club and English Proficiency clubs lend their helping hands in grooming the students’ industry ready by providing avenues for total professional growth.

Through the Designer’s club our institution projects the students’ creativeness and critical thinking skills while pushing them to try a range of techniques and media. It makes the students question, rationally think and make choices, generate alternatives, work collaboratively and create their own solutions for problems. Regular competitions and contests for designing posters, animations, web pages, logo contests and video making are conducted. It also undertakes training programs and workshops in Photoshop, Corel draw and web designing. The main motto is to improve the students’ creative skills by giving design problems. It is committed to nurture and develop innovative thinking skills in an experiential manner among the student community. Students will transform their design skills through models and digital forms.

The process of exchanging ideas, thoughts, knowledge and information such that the purpose or intention is fulfilled in the best possible manner is effective communication. Effective communication initiatives are done in our institution through the English Proficiency club. A trained student can convey his thoughts in any forum with clarity. Communication is the base for decision making. If the communicated information is incomplete or inappropriate it may lead to wrong decisions. So we inculcate in the young raw minds that the message expressed must be short and sweet/precise/concise.

This conveying of a message effectively in an art and is developed after passionate continuous practice. Regular workshops, seminars, training and competitions are conducted as per the event calendar to groom the raw talents in hand to face the real world with competency bubbled with confidence. The main purpose of the English proficiency club is to promote enthusiasm among students for the English language with a friendly but serious way to approach a new language and to encourage students of this club to actively participate in all the competitions.

Self development does not occur overnight rather it is a continuous process. The Self development club focuses on improving/developing the total professional and personality growth. Numerous good habits such as waking up early, reading books, organized activities, time management, honesty, integrity and scheduling based on priority are cultivated among the student community. Innovation, creativity and team building exercises form the core of the self development club.

Due to the current stagnation in the job market, steps have been initiated to improve placement through regular training programs, the training and placement cell. The Institution can offer placement training free of cost to the final year students to improve their employability based on their financial status.

Industry expectation about an aspirant is vibrant, attentive, fast learners, energetic individuals, ready to accept challenges coupled with a good academic background and good communication skills. Industries today make use of unique techniques during recruitment to make certain that those hired will meet its requirements. The Training & Placement Cell recognizes these techniques by interacting with the industry and prepares students for them. The uniqueness of our Training & Placement Cell is to ensure that the recruitment process is a successful journey for the students of TEC. It puts high emphasis on technical and non-technical pre-placement training, which will train students to face interviews and recruitment processes.

It is often perceived that Engineering freshers do not meet all these requirements to get immediately hired across the industries. They still need to have certain skills and training to work in the market. Owing to this gap in the industry standards   and curriculum, the Training & Placement Cell offers many Skill Enhancement Training under “Placement Readiness Programme” for the students.

The   main   focus   of   the   Training   and    Placement   Cell   is   to   train   and equip the students to meet the industrial needs.

  • To prepare students to face campus interviews through arranging training in aptitude, group discussions, technical and mock interviews by trainers.
  • To encourage career guidance and employment opportunities by organizing guidance lectures by corporate personnel and most importantly by the immediately placed senior students.
  • To enhance employability skills, career competency, nurture life skills to all students and develop Industry readiness by imparting necessary training and thus bridging the gap between Industry and Academia.
  • Students are motivated to increase their morale. Students are also informed and advised on the importance of maintaining good academic scores as these play a major role during recruitment.

As the Problem Solving Skills are the fundamental skill to crack the campus interviews, students are given training on Aptitude in which they learn and practice all sorts of problems. The industries’ major expectation is the Communication Skills of students. Hence, they are given training which covers basic grammar, role plays, group discussions, debates, self introductions, mock HR interviews etc. Soft Skills training is given to all the students to make them matured and confident during their campus interviews and also creates a good impression to the interview panel.

To meet the specific objective of educating a student from a rural ground by providing high quality education and making them industry ready is not an easy task.

However, it is made possible by the generous contribution from the trust and scholarships from the government. The quality of teaching and learning process is enhanced by the adoption of information and communication tools. Further, the clubs provided a platform to improve their professional growth. The Placement readiness programmes of our institution equipped the students with industry readiness. The main obstacles faced by the student community are the lack of communication skills. This hurdle is overcome by the continuous motivation by the faculty and the English proficiency club initiatives. Thus, the Institution is able to transform a raw student into an industry ready graduate by providing a platform to enlighten their lives.
