    Placement and employment depend on the individual's ability. Not only does the university offer you a bachelor's degree, but it also enhances student skills. However, there are many competitive exams administered by the government so students can prepare for the exam at any time.

    The Training and Placement Cell is in full shape this year and is expected to remain the same for years to come. Placement isn't as good as you'd expect, and yet, TNPC is trying to get the best of you. Due to the strange geolocation of the college, most companies do not accept the college for placement.
