Looking into the employability demands of the students, the department regularly updates the students, catering to the needs of academia and industry.

The department also gives special emphasis to inculcate in-depth knowledge in research and development among students by organizing conferences, workshops and seminars.Thus in the academic session total 32 students have been campus placed in various institutes/industries/labs. Thus enhancing the efficiency skills of students and to make them build socio-economic consciousness and uplift their ideas towards improvement of the area of their interests. Thereby aiming at excellence in education and meeting the quality standards set by accrediting and regulatory bodies. Thus keeping in mind the holistic growth and development of students the department focuses on diverse aspects like intellectual development, social, physical and emotional development of students.

The department, implements university curriculum through well planned and effective teaching learning activities blended with latest pedagogy approaches. Various approaches have been taken to enable students to meet their individual needs. Exposure to students throughout their educational program is provided by mentors, industry experts, professionals, and innovators. This enables them to be work ready. The department proactively identifies the curriculum gaps and makes the provision for imparting the content beyond syllabus bridging the gaps. The students are facilitated to work on relevant problem related to society, industry through projects like minor and major projects and complex problem solving. Students are enabled to work environment through regular industrial visits. Also they are sent to internships. The institute also organizes various programs for providing hands-on training to the students of latest technology adopted by the industry.
