Am studying B Arch course at Anna University right now am in 3rd year. I wish to confess that education wise it is actually good and also facilities are up to the mark. To say about teaching faculties some of them are really good and very supportive and they are always available to solve our doubts. Anna University Placement scenario is quiet pretty I can say for B Arch placements are good and well reputed companies visit the campus for the recruitment process. Anna University hostel accommodation is nice and also the facilities are satisfactory and also there is mess which offers quality of food
