    Petroleum company is the top recruiting company. Internship programmes are not available here in chemical science because of the course work with project work. However, summer and winter internship programmes are done by students every year.Almost 68% of the students were selected last year in various pharmaceutical companies, various universities and colleges. The highest salary offered was Rs. 33,000 per month and the lowest salary offered was Rs. 12,000 per month.

    There are always pros and cons to each and every college. But it is the duty of the students to adjust to it. The excellent education and learning processes that the college provides, makes it ignore the negative side of the college. Also, the atmosphere and faculty members are great.

    The placement and job opportunities in our college are very much good enough as most of the student get their placement either from the college or outside the college as most of the the courses of our college are language based so most of the student are placed in companies as a language converter.
