Engineering is a field that gives you the vision to create something new or recreate something from existing things. Ever wondered about how an airplane flies, how a building can stand strong, how can a drone fly and capture beautiful pictures? Well, one simple answer to it is engineering. Yes, engineering is one of the best fields to work in.

Hurdles in Creating the Niche
The success of the institute, however, came after the struggles they faced in the earlier days of its inception. “Initially, in spite of having state-ofthe-art infrastructure, the best faculty members were not interested to join our institute because it was new. But as we developed, flourished and established ourselves as an excellent centre of learning we were able to attract the best teaching force and at present the institute can boast of highly qualified and experienced faculty members.”
Right now, the biggest challenge for the institute is to groom students to become lifelong learners with the best of personality attributes. “However, the student’s first duty is to focus on academics,” emphasises Mr. Kumar.
