I still remember my first day in KCG. I was quiet nervous as I was entering into a new environment where I really didn’t know anyone. But the moment I entered, I realised KCG is the most welcoming place. The staffs here are very friendly and highly knowledgeable.
Our college and my department provided me the platform for my success. They showed me the right path in building my career and also been supportive for me in my tough times.Thank you for your support. Need all your blessing all through my life.
Our college has very good infrastructure and learning environment. Many core IT companies recruited the CSE and IT students. Our college has an excellent library with huge collection of books which enables us to clarify the doubts. Excellent training was given for placement which enabled the student to clear the aptitude and technical rounds in the placement drives.
