Before finalizing the selected options, students are provided ample counselling regarding subject options and other activities like N.C.C., N.S.S. and Sports.
The university prepares the academic calendar for the year well in advance and the college strictly sticks to the schedule. One internal exam is conducted in each term for evaluation purpose and one additional term test is conducted at the end of the year to accommodate students unable to attend a term test due to participation in extracurricular co curricular and extension activities or on medical grounds, which is communicated to the students well in advance. During the first orientation class the syllabus, test pattern, paper style, marking scheme (including internal and external examinations) assignments, attendance, tentative time of term tests, and Coverage of Syllabus term wise is discussed. The University schedule is followed to accommodate all academic and extra-curricular activities of the college throughout the year. For the effective teaching-learning process, modern methods of teaching like the presentation of papers, organization of seminars, assignments, the use of audio-visual aids, visits to various places are adopted. Inter-disciplinary link is also emphasized for which experts from other fields and other institutions are invited. Students' optimal participation is emphasized in the learning process by encouraging various classroom and extension / extra-curricular activities as well as by the activities of the College Students' Council.
The appointment of the faculty is made strictly as per the Government rules and procedure. Substitute teachers are appointed as and when required. Students' evaluation is done through internal tests as prescribed by the university. For the UG & PG courses, annual university evaluation system is followed (except for B.B.A., where semester system is followed.)
The student teacher ratio is 1:32. Of the teachers, 39% are doctorates and 11% hold M.Phil. Qualification.

The students of department of electronics and the department of Computer Science of this college have been granted Technician Membership by A.M.I.E., in Section 'A' (Non-diploma) stream, which no other peer college could secure in the nearby areas of the University. (Ref.NO. eea/akg/r-102a Dt, 16-2-1999 of the Institution of Engineers (India), Calcutta.)
The department of electronics is devising methods of cost effective methods for production of circuits and other electronic gadgets.
The Physics Department is also creative in encouraging cost effective modules to achieve good results in experiments.
Commerce Department is acclaimed to be the best department in the college by the students and other stakeholders.
The Management of the college is proactive and it has, a couple of days back, approved grant of Rs. 3.00 crores for development of infrastructure.
The college being the only English medium college in the nearest vicinity, this is a preferred college for the industry for recruitment to their organisations.
Compared to peer institutions in the locality under VNSGU, the skills of the students of this college are appreciable.
The performance of the students in the extension activities is also appreciable. The NCC cadets could get laurels for the institution by achieving distinctions at various levels.
The staff members are committed and are loyal to their institution and also to the students in delivering the knowledge.
The department of biosciences is run by single faculty member Dr. Tamil Chelvan duly assisted by an attendant. Despite his severe ill health and perilous cardiac condition, his commitment and innovative research attitude are appreciable. He should have documented his inventions/practices for better recognition and onward progression.
The management has decided to replace the entire existing computer systems in the college with the systems of latest higher configuration available in the market and quotations are also called for. This is an appreciable step towards providing latest inputs for the empowerment of the students.
Depending upon the feedback received from various corners, many of the problems are dependent on the university system and are beyond the management's purview.
In view of the availability of sufficient infrastructure and land for further development; coupled with availability of committed staff, the management shall try to go ahead for getting autonomous status or deemed university status in due course. This will ward off many problems that are being expressed by the stakeholders, which are mainly due to the University's policies.
UGC gives funds for computerization, internet facilities, automation, minor /major projects, vocational/career oriented courses, remedial courses etc. The college should make best use of these schemes.
Though two non-teaching staff members are recruited 6 months back, so far approval from the University is not received. Necessary persuasion should be made with the university in this regard to avoid tension for the employees.
Where the vacancies are caused due to the death of the staff or otherwise shall be pursued to be filled up to avoid excess load of work on the non teaching staff members. If the process gets delayed due to the procedural delays, the institution shall strive to have an ad hoc appointment to share/cope with the workload.
Those employees who have been working for the past many years on ad hoc basis, may be regularized with due persuasion with the authorities concerned since their valuable career shall not be put to unnecessary risk.
The college must strive to increase the involvement of their alummi in developmental and student-oriented activities for the benefit of the students.
For providing competitive environment and for improvement of standard, it is necessary to take in teachers and students from as diverse a possible and permissible.
Encouraging interaction of the faculty members others at state-level, national and international level will be beneficial.
Office automation will ward off many of the complaints from different corners.
The management shall strive to arrange for opening of a bank's branch or a counter in the premises to avoid unwanted problems and also to enhance the image of the institution amongst the peers. Since the industry support is very much available this may not be a problem for the management.
Up gradation of the syllabus of Biosciences should be done to compete with the students of other universities. Also the management shall strive to open up many courses like Biotechnology, Microbiology, Biochemistry etc., to suit the needs of the industry.
Public telephone facility, which is lying defunct should be revived forthwith to avoid inconvenience to the students.
Proper canteen facilities, communication facilities shall be provided so that dependence on the public transport can be minimized. The institution may charge suitably for these facilities.
College should endeavour to maintain a common time for all the disciplines to avoid unwanted complaints from the parents and also unnecessary hardship to the teaching faculty.
The college must endeavour to increase the financial resources to provide more scholarships, prizes books, other financial help to the students and travel grants and other financial help to the teachers to encourage them to take up more student/ academic development/ research related activities.
Not many healthy practices are observed.
Teachers should undertake Research Projects and research aptitude of the faculty members be increased.
Self-appraisal method of teacher evaluation needs to be introduced.
Computer Literacy be increased and Internet facility be made available in the Library.
Remedial Classes can be started for students with UGC support.
Hostel and Recreational facilities be improved.
NCC wing should be developed further and NSS can collaborate more with NGOs, SHGs.
Library should subscribe to E-Journals.
Columns for giving the names and other details of the students in the feedback forms should be stopped forthwith.
Overall analysis and rating of the feedback taken from the students is not made available. This is very much essential. If we have only a couple of forms of feedback, there is every possibility that either the students are unduly influenced because of threat of low marks in the internal examinations or they may give their biased opinion on certain faculty members. As such overall analysis is very much important.
Ensure that the faculty members - may be heads of the departments or otherwise - are available for the students for clearing off their doubts.
Administrative and office staff should be counseled properly by the management to avoid any unwanted adverse remarks from the students or parents. More dissatisfaction is expressed against the librarian in particular.
Deserving faculty members should be hired or recruited to teach Statistics and other subjects in which the students are facing problem. Proper teaching and delivery of the subject to the students is of paramount importance in teaching-learning process and this should not be ignored at any point of time.
Proper facilities for counseling and placement should be provided for the betterment of the students. Necessary training and exercise in this regard be started in the second year itself so that the students can have sufficient preparation to face the industry. Proper faculty member may be identified for the purpose or another person may be recruited or at lest hired on part time basis to fill the gap, if the funds do not permit permanent recruitment.
Institution should endeavour to get projects/consultancy assignments. The college shall strive for opening of a research centre for award of M.Phil., and Ph.D., and shall take up research works/projects in collaboration with or consultation with the industry.
Foreign languages may also be introduced and relevant language laboratories may also be arranged.
Women empowerment cell shall be housed separately for the benefit of the women.
Parent-teacher association shall be constituted for proper inter action and to resolve the problems and grievances of the students.
Per copy cost of the Photostat copy should be brought down compared to the market rate to avoid hardship to the students.
The peer team expresses its heart felt gratitude for the unstinted cooperation extended by the Principal and staff of the college for the successful conduct of the visit and the management of the college for its pro-active attitude and for giving patient heed to the team and positively accepting the suggestions.
