There is a real dearth of employability skills in many students today. Communication skills project a student’s personality in the real world. Students must learn the knack of interspersing strong technical knowledge with soft skills to emerge as a dynamic engineer.
Engineering students must understand that fluency in a language is directly the result of constant usage of the language. So speaking in English during class hours and break will facilitate the English skills in students.
This task is similar to MODEL UNITED NATIONS CONFERENCES WHICH ACT AS A CATALYST TO ENHANCE YOUNG STUDENTS’ JOB SKILLS TO TRANSFORM INTO GREGARIOUS PERSONALITIES.
Similarly, if engineering students do a thorough research of companies they want to join from the first year onwards, it will pave the way for them to reach their job destinations faster.
The task rules are as follows :
1.Students should be split up into groups
2.All groups will be assigned one reputed
company or start ups
3.They have to do a complete survey of the
company and present details in a grid.
4.With the points and targets to be achieved on
the grid each student has to do a five minute presentation.
5.Interchange of ideas and plans will widen
students’ perspectives about many companies.
Academic Mobility and Research opportunities to be explored in the following areas:
NTU’s Advanced Textiles Research Group (Professor Tilak Dias) and SONAReach Research centre and Department of Fashion Technology
NTU’s Department of Architecture Design and Built Environment and SCT’s Department of Civil Engineering (Dr Amrit Sagoo, Head of Department, Construction Management and Quantity Surveying)
In the first instance, short-term student mobility opportunities to be explored through semester abroad and NTU’s Global Summer School. A progression agreement where SCT students receive Scholarships to pursue their Masters at NTU, once a curriculum mapping exercise is undertaken.

EDII-TN has organized the TNSI AWARD-2018 (Tamil Nadu Student Innovators) as Hackathons at Chennai on 28.02.2019 across the State in which, 800 teams have participated. One of the three first prizes, an amount of Rs.1.0 Lakh, was bagged by Sona team – Mr.S.Mohanraj, Mr. P.Soundar and Mr.P.Manikandan, Final Year Students, Mechanical Engineering Mentored by Dr.P.Suresh Professor Mechanical .
Tile of the Project:To establish an undercoat of composite Nickel plating by Wet plating process on Brass case (Brass with or without lead content) which will improve the corrosion resistance property of Ion Plated Gold, Rose Gold and Steel look cases. The plated Brass case with different colors should pass the Corrosion and Adhesion test as per the ISO 3260 test standards. Scope of the Project: Improve corrosion resistance property through pulse electrodeposition of Ni-nano composite plating for Gold, rose Gold and Steel look plated Brass cases. Methodology: To perform pulse plating using Ni-nano composite coatings on Brass case which are used as anode material in the plating bath. Project Head for Sona College of Technology:
Dr A Jegan, Professor of Mechanical Engineering Department Project investigator from Titan: Mr . R Balashanmugam Project Investigators from Sona College of Technology:
Dr A Jegan, Professor of Mechanical Engineering Department
Dr D Senthilkumar, Professor & HOD of Mechanical Engineering Department
