Notable Alumni Achievements

Team Lead Boeing India

The staff and resources at KCG college of Technology helped me fulfill my dream My department helped me mould my attitude to become a leader through the opportunities I was grateful to have earned. I will always owe my success to my professors who helped me become the person I am today. KCG always holds a very special place in my heart and it’s the place where I have utilized the best 4 years of my Life.

Propulsion R & D Officer, IITM

The place that helped me recognise my true potential and transformed me into a successful Aerospace Engineer is the Department of Aeronautical Engineering. The guidance and support that I got from our faculty and staff was tremendous. With the kind of knowledge, skills, exposure and experiences that were made available to us, was very fortunate to get a job in my field of education  with ISRO on Rocket Propulsion
