 Glad that we have another Engineering College now. Earlier, the nearest ones were either Manipal or Nitte. Good luck to the new students.

 If we compare to a couple of decades and now we can see that more and more people graduate in Engineering field and employed in different places including foreign countries. This is because of these Institutions.

 Starting from 76 students in the first year to over 300 students now is very good. More and more students opt of engineering education now as per the job opportunities.

 Students will find it difficult in the 1st semester as most of them would be away from their homes for the first time. But once they cope with the new atmosphere and co-students they will find it better. During 3rd or 4th year they would even prefer to stay in the campus than going home, because they get used to that place so much that the various activities will keep them very much occupied. The encouraging words of Dr. Narayana Sabhahit will definitely help the new students and gives a lot of confidence.
