COURSE CURRICULUM OVERVIEW
The course curriculum is lengthy in the first two semesters, it has all the subjects including Kannada and English. The first year is also a bit tough as it includes subjects from almost every engineering branch. The third semester is a lot about practicals and the fourth semester is almost theory, but it is easy. Our courses are carefully planned each year by the Heads of departments. The third is all about internships and the fourth year is fully project oriented. The fourth year will be easy as the college staff is more supportive than they are.
Our college provides internships starting from the 6th semester. We have to compulsorily complete at least 3 internships which might sound tough but it is done for our benefits. Many reputed companies including some startups are coming for internship selection to our college which has increased the rate of placement.
