Every facility is provided in the campus to create an environment fully conducive to realizing this objective.
Discipline, hard work, positive thinking, commitment to excellence and abiding faith in the Almighty are the guiding principles that propel the college to its vision of emerging as a Centre of Excellence in technical education in the country.
