Narasaraopeta Engineering College (NEC), in recent years, has established itself as one of the best Computer Science engineering colleges in the Guntur District of Andhra Pradesh. This rise has been exceptional and unrivalled, considering the fact that Guntur is a hub for many top Engineering Institutions of Andhra Pradesh. The amalgamation of departmental excellence with institutional brilliance has been vital for NEC’s successful endeavours in recent years. The competent faculty, upgraded facilities, placement revamp, and clearly defined goals have played a big part in this upsurge.
The Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) department, in particular, has been achieving tremendous success over the years. The CSE branch faculty consists of many Ph.D. holders with vast experience from the industry, and in teaching. The diverse skill sets and innovative mindsets of the proficient professors have helped the students in gaining clarity and creativity.
The Computer Science branch is equipped with amenities to provide students with world-class educational experience. The computers in labs are powered by advanced processors and authentic software applications. The students are also provided with excellent laboratory facilities to gain practical exposure.
The students of the CSE department have been placed in big corporate powerhouses such as Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) and Tech Mahindra. Narasaraopeta Engineering College has established a “Training & Placement Cell” with the prime objective of providing a common meeting ground for its graduating students and the industry giants. The placement cell has maintained positive relations with these companies over the years, and this has played a crucial role in driving a greater percentage of placements with each passing year.
The organizations are first invited for a pre-placement talk, during which they communicate their recruitment needs, salary packages, and job roles. It is followed by many rounds of interviews and the best candidates are selected by these companies. This also helps the students get a firm idea about the industry needs and requirements. In coming years, the placement cell is aiming to tie up with more organizations to increase the bandwidth of career options for the students of NEC.
Goals and Objectives
The goals and objectives of the CSE department align with the mission and values of NEC. The pre-determination of these goals have proved to be vital for the clarity amongst staff and faculty of the institution. They know, beforehand, the path that the institution is inclined towards. These high benchmarks are driving the CSE department towards holistic as well as academic perfection. Some of these goals are:
• To inculcate an ethical, moral and value-based educational system in the institution.
• To further enhance the campus placements.
• To nurture future innovators of the industry.
• To establish an R&D department.
• To emerge as a Center of Excellence.
Having established itself as one of the best engineering colleges in Krishna District, NEC’s reputation as an academic institution is growing. The challenges that await will involve competition with the most established institutions of the country. Yet, it would be unjust to undermine the progress of NEC as they keep defying the odds.
