Academics[edit]

Among the undergraduate and postgraduate programmes offered by the college, many are accredited by the National Board of Accreditation of the All India Council of Technical Education (AICTE). The college was conferred autonomous status by the University of Madras in 1978, which was continued by the Bharathiar University and subsequently by Anna University, and from 2007 by Anna University of Technology, Coimbatore. This enables the college to frame its own curricula, update syllabus and introduce new courses as and when needed. The college is empowered to administer its own evaluation system.

The departments benefit from the expertise of more than 15 visiting faculty from other institutions. Each department annually conducts at least one national/international conference/seminar/workshop for dissemination of the latest technologies and research findings. On average, five short term programmes on topics of interest are conducted for the teaching faculty from other colleges with funding from AICTE/ISTE and other agencies.

It also has links with industries in the fields of automotive, aerospace, defence, textile, machine tools, software development and consumer durables.
