The courses are offered under semester system and the syllabus prescribed by the Anna University is followed.
Criterion 2: Teaching, Learning and Evaluation
Admission to the various courses of study is done in accordance with the statutory provisions of the Anna University and the Government of Tamil Nadu. The seats under Government quota is filled through the single window system of admission based on state level entrance examination. The seats under management quota are filled through a separate entrance examination conducted by the consortium of self financing colleges in Tamil Nadu.
The teachers are expected to make a teaching plan and implement it meticulously for the whole semester well in advance. The implementation of the teaching plan is monitored by the Head of the Department. Classroom teaching is supplemented by tutorials, seminars and projects.
The method of evaluation of students is decided by a class committee consisting of subject teachers and student representatives in the beginning of the semester. The results of the internal examinations are discussed in the class committee meeting and also communicated to the parents. The weak students are identified and in each department given extra coaching. The proctorial system is functioning well in the college.
Recruitment of teachers is done as per AICTE norms by a duly constituted selection committee. The performance of the faculty are evaluated by students (40% weightage), HOD (30% weightage), Principal (20% weightage) and Management (10% weightage). The faculties who obtained below average rating are counseled to improve their performance.
The College encourages faculty to attend seminars, workshops, conferences, etc., for updating their knowledge and skills. However, efforts need to be made by the faculty to organize seminars, workshops, conferences in the college itself. The management has to provide necessary budget and mechanism for the same.
Criterion 3: Research, Consultancy and Extension
A research & development centre is in operation in the college. The teachers are encouraged to carry out research works. The faculty have published research papers in International Journals and Conferences. The college provides TA / DA to faculty for presenting papers in Conference. The faculties are given study leave for furthering their qualifications.
The teachers are encouraged to take up consultancy works. However, a consultancy cell needs to be established in the college.
The College has a NSS and a Youth Red Cross Wing, which are quite active. Many useful activities are being conducted by the NSS and Youth Red Cross Wing. The College has adopted an Elementary School situated nearer to the college and extends all possible help. The College has adopted a nearby village, Kovilampakkam and the students and staff of the college have conducted number of programmes for improvement of the downtrodden of the village.
Criterion 4: Infrastructure and Learning Resources
The college has established all the laboratories required in all their departments viz. Electrical and Electronics Engineering, Electronics and Communication Engineering, Computer Science and Engineering, Civil Engineering; Information Technology, MCA, Workshop, Physics and Chemistry. All the laboratories have requisite lab apparatus and measuring instruments kept in perfect working condition. The labs have trained technical manpower to look after the labs. Lab manuals developed by the college faculty are being used by students. Special mention has to be made about extensive usage of the facilities in Computer Science Department. Seeing the high occupation of such labs, the air conditioning of these places have to be augmented. The college may have to pay attention towards safety measures and also make students aware of such practices in these labs. The facilities available in some labs are also used effectively for research purposes, e.g. Civil Engineering. There is enough potential to use these facilities for consultancy jobs also. eg. Universal Testing Machine. The college has also required extra apparatus not normally found in such undergraduate institutions, (e.g. RF lab). The sharing of resources is followed, eg. DSP lab is used by all Departments.
The concept of project lab in ECE Department is to be appreciated since an exposure increases the confidence level of students in facing employment interviews. While some software packages are available, the college needs to improve in this area, for instance PSPICE exposure to all Electronics students, AUTOCAD, MATHCAD etc. In computer labs, one finds mostly P-IV machines. In years to come, the college may have to reserve additional resources to keep updating computer hardware and software. Internet surfing facility must be provided to students and staff in more places. Since the college has completed only ten years, there apparently seems to be no problem in maintenance of lab apparatus. The College has already entered into AMC with different Companies for maintaining the lab equipments.
A centralized Instruments servicing facility may be created for this purpose. The classrooms are well ventilated, lighted and equipped with projection facilities. Teachers are encouraged to use modern tools in delivering lectures apart from blackboard usage. Some amount of training is required for teachers in the use of such projection aids, regarding the readability, and place of coverage. Otherwise teachers tend to go fast and students will not be able to follow them.
The English Department has a language lab which is also used for training students in TOEFL etc.
The college has number of facilities for extra curricular activities like multi-gym, and other fitness equipments and indoor games room. Coaching in some form of martial arts especially for girls is recommended by the Committee.
The library has 21,610 books and 119 journals / periodicals needed for undergraduate teaching. However, in respect of post graduate teaching more journals may be required and the college is contemplating to go for subscription of E-journals. This is a welcome move. The library management is computerized. It is heartening to note that the computerization of library has been done by the students. Efforts are required to improve the usage of library by students. The library is open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
The lab technicians of CSE Department are maintaining all the Companies in the College.
The College has other support facilities which include playground, guest house, canteens, mess, auditorium, standby power generator, STD, PCO, Xerox, Bank counter, Health Centre etc.
The college organizes training programmes for students to develop their soft skills which is very much required in today s competitive world. The success of such an effort was evident when the team interacted with various students in the campus. The final year students are also given training for appearing in GRE, TOEFL, etc.
Criterion 5: Student support and progression
The college publisher its prospectus annually giving details of admission procedure, courses offered, list of faculty members, infrastructure facilities and placement details. The college has also its website giving all information.
The pass percentage of students in UG courses is generally around 93% and the college administration is taking efforts to improve this. In respect of PG courses the pass percentage is around 88% and it needs to be brought up to almost 100%. Number of University rank holder is replicable and needs serious concern for the faculty.
Over the years the admission quality has improved and the committee notes with praise that this year admission has been over within the first four days of counseling. This is definitely an indicator of purposes of the college.
The college awards merit scholarship and scholarships for physically challenged students.
The college has an employment cell and a fulltime placement officer. In the last year out of 350, 280 graduates have been placed due to the efforts of the placement all.
The maximum salary offered is about 3 lakhs per annum. An interaction with alumni indicated that employment prospects of the students has been on the increase over the years. A few students also got self employment. In the case the college may think of running some entrepreneurial development courses suited to the local needs of Chennai.
The college has instituted a proctorial system to monitor the academic as well as other welfare of the students. Each proctor has about 15 students under him and there is almost a weekly interaction with students. The efficacy of this method was testified by the feed back gathered from the parents who met the team members.
The college has an active alumni association. The emotional bond, alumni members have with the college was amply noticed during the interaction with alumni.
Criterion 6: Organisation and Management
The Organizational structure of the college has been prominently displayed to all stock holders. Academic and administrative autonomy has been provided to the department. Financial control is generally exercised by the governing body. Interaction with students and parents revealed that the management is always approachable by all and generally grievances are acted upon without delay. The Management has been taking the help of external agencies in tone up administration.
There is a structural self appraisal mechanism and also appraisal peers and superiors.
The calendar of the college is prepared well in advance and published for the students.
The management encourages running of various workshops and training purposes to enhance the skills of faculty and staff.
The fee structure of the college commensurate with the requirements of the University and the state government. It was gathered from the discussion with parents, that, this institution does not change any other fees, apart tuition fees collected in the beginning of the session.
The college manages its funds very well, with the fees collected and deficit being supplied by the trust fund. The management has to start thinking of a corpus fund which will take care of all the growing needs of the college in the year to come.
Criterion 7: Healthy Practices
The college has signed MoU with a number of industries. It is hoped these will be pursued further to enhance the training of the students in these industries.
Though the college has to follow strictly the syllabus framed by the University, it has gone further to add emerging topics to the curriculum and also to train the students in effective communication and other soft skills.
The internal marks to be awarded by the college is decided in the most transparent way by conducting periodical tests. Students are also administered retests in case they are not able to appear in a test.
Top Management of the college have made themselves available to students and staff and this has ensured that there is no appreciable grievances from any quarter. The retention rate of the faculty also indicates the same.
The college imparts education along with healthy practices to be imbibed by the students, like, no smoking, keeping the campus clean, prohibition of plastic bags in the campus etc.
Through the extension programmes, NSS activities, Youth Red Cross etc. the students are made aware of their social responsibilities. The State Government YRC wing has awarded prize to the college for outstanding performance of the YRC.
In short, the college is committed to all round personality development of its students rather than merely imparting knowledge.
Section III: Overall Analysis
The college was conceived and developed by the promoters who are educational entreprepreurs running similar Institutions and a deemed University since 1995 with the purpose of providing quality technical education to the society. From a modest beginning, the institution has grown to its present status due to the Philanthropic attitude of the promoters well defined goals of the management and the dedicated efforts of the faculty.
