Recently I have completed B.Tech in computer science engineering from Chennai institute of technology. My experience in this college was awesome. I completed my graduation with the fees expenditure of approximately 1.6 Lakhs. As per my knowledge fees structure for other courses is also feasible.

Basic eligibility needed to appear for these exams is that candidate must have completed 10+2 with at least 50% aggregate with PCM as the compulsory subject, from a university which is recognised.
