After the completion of my 2nd PUC I appeared for National level entrance examinations like TNEA, as the admissions are on the basis of score in entrance examinations. Valid score as per the cut off marks is mandatory in order to get shortlisted for admission into this college. Another basic eligibility needed to get admission is that, candidate must have completed 10+2 with at least 50% aggregate marks with PCM as the compulsory subject from a recognised board. Fees structure for courses is feasible according to me; I completed my B.Tech in computer science engineering with the total expenditure of 2.2 Lakhs.
