As a Chairman, I motivate my team members to work together to make our college secure.
Keeping the infrastructure adequate – An ever-green challenge
One of the foremost challenges that I have faced is to improve infrastructural facilities for the students. In the present-day scenario and the surrounding competition, many changes need to be made as per market requirements. Currently, the college is under the process of advancing by upgrading the technology as per the latest trends. So, this is one of the significant challenges we are currently facing.

JNTU Kakinada is the affiliating body of our college, and it is responsible for designing the entire curriculum. It reflects the latest changes in the industry as well as the education sector. Besides this, we also focus on exposing our students to practical knowledge by bringing them closer to the industry. This is done through industry visits, guest lectures, internship opportunities, and workshops that match the industry trends.
Apart from this, various guest lectures by the industry experts are conducted to keep the faculty and students updated with the ongoing and upcoming developments in the real-world. Also, workshops and seminars are organised to train our students holistically in language, quantitative, and soft skills. We also encourage them to work on real-time projects to become more efficient for the real world.

Methods opted to ensure quality education at PCET
We are proud of the discipline and creative abilities we harness in our students. Quality education is ensured through our well experienced, qualified, and dedicated faculty. They are responsible for updating information and technologies. We encourage students to engage themselves in presentations and research papers. We also focus on every student with utmost commitment and figure out ways to make him/her cope up with the curriculum and build confidence in them to succeed in whatever task they will be opting.
Maintaining relationship with the learners
It is essential to establish a healthy relationship with the students in an educational institute. We, at PCET, ensure to greet the students cordially by listening to their issues and concerns. As an administrator, it is my duty to resolve their grievances in a minimal amount of time. We make sure to put the comfort of our students at the forefront of our communication. We also organize weekly cultural events and programs to keep them all connected.
Apart from this, there is a dedicated chat group which updates the students with the latest information regularly. We also have an influential alumni association, which maintains relations with the current batches and alumni.
Placement opportunities at PCET
In here, there is a dedicated placement and training cell that guides, monitors, and trains the students for their future. The cell is involved in maintaining and upgrading the skill set of our students.
Pydah College host several companies for the recruitment process. We believe in providing the best of the placement opportunities to our students. We wish to strengthen the Placement-Industry cell further to have a closer association with more number of companies.
