There exists a huge gap between the Industry needs and students’ know-how, especially in the field of technology. While the industry needs professionals with on-field expertise, the society needs one that has humane heart too. The onus lies on the institutes that craft technical graduates. But to one’s surprise, such institutes can be counted on fingers. M.Kumarasamy College of Engineering (MKCE) is one of those very few institutes who are not involved in creating mechanised professionals, but creating the true leaders of tomorrow and has been producing world-class engineering graduates since 2000.

The college is on the mission to produce smart technocrats with empirical knowledge of global standards who live a life of purpose with ethical values. Its diverse, fully-engaged, learner-centric campus provides quality education to the students. This NAAC accredited Autonomous institution offers modern, flexible system of education ranging from classroom to laboratories, library to auditorium, hostels to cafeteria, and sports to entrepreneurship, all at its state-of-the-art quality campus.

The students are engaged in innovative projects and even encouraged to file patents, go for internships and industrial visits, which prepare them to face the real world with true guts.

Thanks to MKCE’s treasure chest of 248 permanent teaching faculty members, who have published 338 papers in international peer-reviewed journals, filed 18 patents and signed MOUs with several industries, and its Training and Placement Department, the college witnessed over 98 percent placement for its 2018 passed-out batch, while 2019 passing-out batch saw 68.85 percent student placement and still counting. MKCE’s Training and Placement Department has the onus of making students employable
through a 360-degree training program that takes input from industries on latest needs. Comprising of well-trained professionals with relevant industrial and academic credentials in different verticals of business, the placement team holds in-depth expertise in technical behaviour and professional skills. It creates processes and presents opportunities of placement to talented students. The cell has the obligation to arrange for correspondence, testing facilities, logistics support and finally ensuring on-boarding with all relevant formalities.

From offering communication skill advancement, personality development, in campus and off-campus technology training, training workshops, summer/vocational /projecttrainings, behaviour modification, outbound training, psychometric analysis, to career mapping and many others, these programs help students to improve their skill-centric and behaviour-centric traits.

The placement cell invokes training need analysis and prepares corporate dossier for establishing the selection parameters and understanding the criteria of recruiters. This helps the cell to prepare the candidates for a variety of industry-specific requirements through campus placements, and has successfully placed students in MNCs like TCS, IBM, Virtusa, Wipro, Capgemini, Tech Mahindra, FAME Technology, Future Generali, Infosys, HCL Technologies, ZOHO, Photon and others.
