But now, technology’s intervention into the field of academics and engineering is stupendous.” The skill set and core engineering knowledge pertaining to any discipline that a budding engineer can be acquired in CEG, as CEG provides all facilities for the growth of an engineer”, proudly says Swaminathan, an alumnus from EEE department. “ If one has good reasoning skills and the ability to think out of the box, one can succeed in any field of engineering”, remarked Vasanth Reddy-an alumnus from ECE department. James Dewaker, an alumnus, currently serving as Vice President of Cognizant gave a piece of advice stating that the students should concentrate more on developing social, interpersonal and communication skills as these are the qualities, the professional look for, when they come to hire graduates”.
