PROGRAMMES FOR STUDENTS
PERSONALITY DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMMES (PDP)
Academic excellence alone is not enough and cannot guarantee a good career. Certain personality attributes and soft skills are essential not only to get a good job placement but also to be able to contribute and grow in an organization. Taking cognizance of this, the college emphasises all round development through a range of extracurricular activities as well as organizing and conducting formal Personality Development Program.

This is a mandatory programme for second year B.Tech. students of the college. This programme helps in the overall personality development of students. The whole exercise is intended to increase the employability of students. Amidst an inspiring and invigorating environment, students undergo training that turns them into top notch professionals.
