The Experience in Anna university.
Name: VASANTH K | Batch of 2012 | Rating 5
Recommends this college
The campus is connected to the mid of the city in Guindy opposite to IIT Madras. One of the best thing about our college is we get free Wi-Fi all around the campus. Pros: The college has all necessary infrastructure, the laboratories, Canteen, the library and even with the saloon and super market. Cons: For the PG students the hostel facility is not available and we have to look for hostels or rooms in nearby locality. The hostel facility is available only for the UG. For the students who are looking to join CEG you are at the right place and your life will be colorful.
