Loyola-ICAM engineering college is located at the heart of the city which is very good thing for the students as most of the engineering colleges in Chennai are located at the outskirts of the city. This saves the students from all the travelling time and makes them comparatively less tired and more productive when compared to students who have to travel around two hours to reach college everyday. The infrastructure is very well built and it is one the best place to get your degree.
The college follows the curriculum set by Anna University as it is affiliated to it. There would be thouree internal assessment carried out by college on the basis of which the internal marks would be calculated for an individual at the end of semester. The assessments would be covering the portions which would help the individual to face the finals with confidence. Loyola has made me an engineer with responsibility.
Placements are quite good. Most of the placements are off campus and pooled campus. They try to bring a number of companies and to get their students placed. They work very hard to get at least one offer to each of their student. The student who uses the maximum out of whatever option they are providing with regard to placement will be definitely placed well with a reputed organization.
Every year a technical symposium is conducted by every department on a seperate day. Neighbouring and fellow engineering colleges are invited to participate in the events. It would be mostly consisting of technical components like paper presentation and hackathon of such. Several non technical events are also added along with it like treasure hunt to add more fun to it. A yearly cultural event called the Engenia is conducted by the college which will be held for two days, offstage events on day one and onstage events on day two. People from media and cinema would be invited as chief guests and judges.
The fees structure is moderate and a fair one compared to its competitors/fellow engineering colleges. They charge 70k per academic year. The one time payment of around 50k would be collected at the start of the college which would be termed as miscellaneous fees. Apart from this exam fees, no dues, farewell and other fees are collected as and when collectible.
I have opted for the minority scholarship which would award me 25k per year. The process was made very easy as there is a seperate counter at the college office room for scholarships. The person there would help students with the formalities and steps that needs to be carried out in order to avail the scholarship provided. I have also took student load from the bank to pay for my college expenses. The bank explained the process and hand out the necessary forms which needed to be filled. The fees structure needs to be provided along with the Bonafide from college.
The campus life is a just plain normal one which can been seen in every other colleges. The gender ration depends on the course, for e.g the mechanical engineering batch would happen to have mostly boys enrolled and hardly four to five girls wheres the electrical department had forty girls and fifteen boys as its strength. There was sports like kabadi, basketball, cricket, lawn tennis, badminton and indoor games like chess, table tennis, etc. There were other technical events and debates and guest lectures happening whenever possible.
The college has been functional for just 10 years now. So the alumni network does not have that bandwidth which could be seen in some big colleges. But the seniors would be helpful in providing their insights about certain aspects if it is found difficult for a fellow junior to cope up with.
To join in Loyola-ICAM one should buy the admission form the college which they start to hand out from the month of January which costs around 1k. The applicant gotta fill the form, submit it. Post exam results based on merit cum basis and cut-off the college schedules an interview for the shortlisted students which would be informed to them beforehand thourough messages and other form of communication. There would be generally two round of interview, one with the principal post which there would be one with the Dean of Studies/Director. Once you clear these rounds you could select one among the five courses which they offer.
The facilities are very well read and know their stuff. Some professors could not be up to the mark and may not be the best but speaking in a general context the faculties are all right. They help us with the academics and also try to help us at other aspects of life too.
The institute is among the best technical institutes of South India & that is the reason why I opted for this institution PSGCT was ranked 49th for BTech & 85th overall by NIRF in its 2020 rankings. The institute is affiliated to Anna University & also have approval by AICTE. Grade''A" accreditation by NAAC is also included in its recognitions . Admissions to the BTech program at PSGCT are based on 10+2 scores , followed by the TNEA counselling process.
No, the institute didn't organise any interview round for selection of students. The admissions were entirely based on the merit list made as per applied candidates scores in 10+2 exams, which was further followed by the TNEA counselling procedure.
From the 7 th semester students are eligible to attend the placements Our college provides 100% placement and good companies like Zoho, Cognizant, Soliton, Accenture, CTS, TCS, Wipro, Amazon, CODA Kaar Tech, etc
You can get admission into this college through the entrance examination or management quota by showing your higher secondary marks. You just need to bring all the required documents for verification.
The placement record of the college has been average over the course of the year. Companies like TCS Wipro Infosys visit the campus for placement. You can also opt for off campus placement if you don't get the desired package.
The fact that this institution was founded and built by a group of professors with a purely academic mindset and not a business mindset is an absolute pro to this college. In the four years, it has become evident that choosing this institution was completely worthy.
