» The college has started a counseling cell for students in helping to choose the right subject combinations in conjunction with their aptitude and attitude. Counselling is a helping process which aims to facilitate the process of growth and positive well being. Counselling emphasizes awareness and early identification and intervention of mental health issues. It allows students to effectively deal with problems and issues before they become unmanageable.

» Counselling empowers students with enhanced ability to solve problems, make decisions and deal more effectively with their personal situations. It helps students to alleviate distress, enhance wellness, utilizing their best potentials and facilitate the achievements.

» The role of a counselor is to offer support to the students to deal with a wide range of concerns -be it academic, personal, emotional, family or peer related, through counseling. Counselor will meet students and their parents, as and when needed. Parents and teachers can also approach counselor.

Each Department Of Engineering has its own association which keeps itself active throughout by year organizing National level and State level Competitions, Seminars, Symposiums, Paper presentations etc. The activities of the association help the student to build their technical skills, leadership quality and industry interaction.
