Welcome to SNS College of Engineering

The inaugural function of SNS College of Engineering was held in a pleasant manner.

The students alongwith their parents thronged the Seminar Hall one hour ahead of the schedule. They were made at home by our teachers and volunteers. The audience were treated to a few AVI presentations about the college, which had them all interested. The function started by 10.45 AM with Ms.Alamelu, a student of I ECE invoking the prayer song. The divine presence was further enlightened as the dignitaries, Dr.S.N.S.Rajalakshmi, Dr.S.N.Subbramaniam, Dr.S.Veluswamy, Dr.V.P.Arunachalam and Dr.G.Karuppuswami lit the Kutthuvilakku in order.

Dr.S.N.Subbramaniam welcomed the gathering and highlighted the objectives of the new institution. In his "straight from the heart" address, he explained that the students should find SNS College of Engineering a great place to learn and grow. He asked the students to raise their self esteem and assured that the institution will offer more than required to enable the student go out with a first class degree, a well placed job and an unbeatable character. He told that SNS College of Engineering was in tunes with technology and with industry requirements. He elaborated on the efforts taken by the institution to improve the soft skills of the students right from their day one. His entire address held the audience in sway and they all understood that they found their way. He encouraged participative growth from the students and parents and told that every parent is a stakeholder of the institution and they shouldnt shy away from it. In short, he welcomed the audience for the occassion and for four years at SNS CE providing them a glimpse of the golden days they are about to have.

Dr.Veluswamy, the Founder Trustee in his special address mentioned that the college was a unique one and requested the students to make use of the college for a bright future. He made it clear that the students and the institution grew hand in hand.

The focus then shifted to the Course Overview provided by the Principal Dr.G.Karuppuswami. In his interactive presentation, Dr.G.Karuppuswami highlighted the objectives of the course, the college and of course the students. He was down to earth and went all around the audience in course of his presentation, which was not only well recieved by the audience, but had them amazed. To add to the amazement, he interacted with students and presentations raising questions and bringing out answers from them. In his presentation studded with audios and videos,

Dr.G.Karuppuswami passed information lucidly and clearly. In the course of his presentation, he had Prof.Padmanabhan introducing his faculty members and Prof.Anuradha explaining the off classroom teaching - learning process. The off the classroom teaching learning process is a unique process of SNSCE. The college strictly believes that education doesnt start and end in a classroom. We have a string of technology aided mechanisms that promote student oriented education even after class hours. The presentation of the Principal was in itself a portrait of how things would be in SNSCE - innovative, interactive, informative and technically impressive.
Dr.V.P.Arunachalam, Principal, SNS College of Technology felicitated SNSCE and pledged the support of the sister institution towards the new institute. He also requested the students to get ready to shift their mindsets from that of a normal human to an engineer in terms of their thought processes on the day to day activities.

A good 30 minutes was allocated for the interaction of the parents with the management of SNSCE. The parents clarified their reservations regarding hostels, transport, training and placement of the college which was well answered by the management. When the parent members expressed happiness and surprise on the interaction session, Dr.S.N.Subbramaniam had them in full joy when he told them that it was the practice of the institute to hold atleast one parent interactive session atleast once in a year. He also added that the college was always ready to welcome them and their suggestions.

The audience then left for a sumptous lunch served with a smile. The students and parents returned with their hearts, mind and appettite full. We are waiting to recieve them back on Monday with full enthusiasm.
