We focus on catering to the needs of Millennial learners with enhanced ICT tools for collaborative learning,  blended learning and flipped classrooms. We strive to maximize the potential of each student by maintaining a positive and trusting relationship. We organize various activities like Intercollegiate IT Festival TechStorm, Seminars, Workshops/Training on recent Trends and Technologies, Alumni Talk. All these activities are managed by students that enhance their leadership qualities,  interpersonal and communication skills. We strive to inculcate ethics and morals in students through various social activities. Enthusiastic and passionate faculty team has impacted on an excellent performance of students in placements, academics and certifications.
