Focusing on Educating Students
RMK College of Engineering and Technology, a flagship under RMK group of Institutions works steadily towards creating an environment where students are able to focus on their work with an eye towards their future.
Engineering education stands supported by the invisible infrastructures of their response to the needs of the country and the common man. The quality of hard and smart work is always aimed at making the world a better place to live in for all future generations, is imbibed in every student. RMK College of Engineering and Technology ensures that the students who come into their learning halls imbibe these values. Begun in 2008, this college is affiliated to Anna University and is located in Tiruvallur District, Tamil Nadu.
To prepare students for their future in the industry is one of the major strengths of the college. From the first year, the college conducts both technical and soft skill trainings for the students. In the second year, the college then organizes technical as well as non-technical trainings for them. In the third year, aptitude trainings as well as Campus Ready trainings are provided so that students are well equipped to face the challenges of campus placements. Through the Infosys (Train the Trainer mode), the faculty themselves also receive relevant training and enable the students to get recruited by Infosys and other IT giants. They are one of the 140 recruiters that the college receives for their students. Among the other giants that often recruit from the college are companies such as Wipro, L&T Infotech and CTS. So far, the highest package ever offered to a student has been Rs. 4 lakhs.
The institute has focused on making sure the curriculum does not remain stagnant. Understanding that, students can be prepared through updating the curriculum, the college takes the initiative to fill in the gaps. The college inculcates new ideas and novel methods in approaching pedagogy through regular and special classes where innovative skills are taught to the student. The students are thus able to keep up with the changes occurring within the industry and this increases their productivity making them job ready. The faculty too are kept thoroughly updated through faculty development programs organized every two months with experts from leading companies. This helps the faculty members to keep abreast of the cutting edge technologies and also provide valuable inputs to the budding engineers in their domain of interest. With 136 as the total number of faculty, 18 have PhDs and the average experience of the faculty comes to 9.2 years.
With currently two ongoing projects sponsored by ISRO and DST-SERB this college has a total of 2 patents approved, 9 filed and is handling 10 consultancy projects. This is possible owing to the impeccable facilities and infrastructures made available for the students. The Library is updated with over 21019 volumes of books with 4683 titles and 1520 CDs. The Library also subscribes to 543 e-Books, 60 National Journals, 525 International Journals, 20 Magazines and 11 newspapers. The computer centre is also well maintained and open to both students and faculty for use. Thus the students and faculty are exposed to enough reading materials to keep themselves updated on the changes happening in technology and their domains of interest. The vision of the RMKCET is to be a pioneer in providing the youth with global quality interactive technical education to cater to the needs of the industries that would in turn, benefit society. The college is capable of accomplishing this through their focus on the basic aspects of curriculum and faculty through which the students can gain look to their future assured of their places within the industry of their interest.
The quality of hard and smart work is always aimed at making the world for our posterity to live in happily, is imbibed in every student. Yes even in the world of cutthroat competition, our children have learnt the meaning of sacrifice. They are ethically evolved.
RMKCET is a strict institute but I had a good experience there. The college is focused on placement and most of us got placed. The college is good and kept us busy but there were extracurricular activities which we were able to participate in as well. We have a good Library and our lab is well equipped with all the machines and equipments we needed.
