Imparting knowledge, the simple way

CAMPUS WATCH

WHAT’S ON OFFER MSEC boasts of simple yet fully functional classrooms and a green and vibrant atmosphere. M S Engineering College in Sadahalli, is far removed from the crowd and manic pace of Bangalore. The fact that it takes you two hours from the city to reach a dusty Sadahalli, that the campus is ensconced on all sides by tall trees and calming weather, or that there is nothing grand or opulent about its facade, are all testimony to that.

Promoted by M S Educational Trust and spread over an area of 25 acres, M S Engineering College is equipped with minimal infrastructure and an accomplished team of faculty members who form a part of the teaching and the administrative staff.

MS Engineering College was set up in 2000 and, over a period of 11 years, has made a mark for itself with nothing more than a modest building and a qualified team of faculty members.

All programmes offered at MSEC are approved by the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE), an apex body of the Government of India. The college is affiliated to Visvesvaraya Technological University (VTU), Karnataka and is ISO 9001:2000 certified.
Courses offered include:

Bachelor of Engineering (BE) degree courses in:
*Electronics & Communication Engineering
*Computer Science & Engineering
*Information Science & Engineering
*Electrical & Electronics Engineering
*Mechanical Engineering

PG programmes include:
* Master of Business Administration
*Master of Computer Applications

“Life is not a set of instructions but is a series of experiences and learning. Engineering is no exception. This is where MSEC steps in — to make a difference, and where learning is not just a series of instructions but a passion, which goes beyond books, beyond instructions, beyond learning horizons,” says Dr Sreerama Reddy, Principal, M S Engineering College.

The comprehensive facilties provided on campus for students include state-of-the-art laboratories, workshops, seminar halls, digital classrooms, outdoor and indoor games facilities (table tennis, basketball, volleyball, etc.), canteen and a gymnasium.

Library

The college has an open-access library offering its students an exhaustive range of books and reading material on engineering subjects.

Some of the journals that the library subscribes to are from international magazines and newsrooms. The library also comes with a digital section for access to the online media.
There is little or no room for leisure reading in the library.

Unique to MSEC

In an attempt to refine the necessary skills, aptitude and attitude towards preparing students to become job-ready, the institute organises several corporate placement workshops and counselling sessions every semester for the final year students.

Individual counsellors and other colleges have been roped in to facilitate this. The college has also conducted a state-wide job fair on campus.

Besides campus placement workshops, corporates such as Wipro and Infosys also conduct workshops for students and teachers alike, every semester. While Wipro trains teachers in effective teaching methodology over a period of two days, Infosys has set up a certificate course on campus for those interested in working in Information Technology. This is ideal for those who have already been placed with an IT company. The course sees students from mechanical, electronics and communications attending the programme.

“I have been offered a job with Infosys. The programme has helped me gain a foundation in computer science and analytics. This way, I will not be lost on my first day at work,” says Santhosh, a final year mechanical engineering student.

In an attempt to bring in students with the right aptitude, the college offers those with a rank within the first 2000 in AIEEE or CET a complete fee-waiver. Students who also score a high rank in engineering are re-imbursed their tuition fee.

The college also supports the needs of the underprivileged by sourcing and finding private, central/state government scholarships for its students.

There is evidently much effort going into assiduously identifying the functional gap between MSEC and premier institutions of the country like IITs and NITs. Students keep receiving central/state government and private scholarships. In addition, the management is also magnanimous in offering scholarships to meritorious students, students from the SC/ST categories, and students who have excelled in sports.

Excellence in co-curricular and extra- curricular activities are encouraged among students to mould them into full-fledged personalities.

With a student strength of 1700, the institute offers hostel accommodation for outstation students and a transport service for those residing in the city.

Placements

Students from the previous seven batches have been placed with Infosys, HP, Dell International, L&T Infotech, Nandi Toyota, and IBM, to name a few. Over the last three years, there has also been a sharp focus on entrepreneurship enterprises. “We have slowly come to recognise the value in entrepreneurship. If a full-time job with an MNC is not for all, entrepreneurship becomes a welcome alternative. It is refreshing to see many students here eagerly choosing to chart their own career,” adds Dr Sreeram.

The institute also maintains a close relationship with its alumni members, thereby involving them in various current activities on campus. Often, a graduate of MSEC is invited to the campus to take part in symposiums and workshops — allowing for an interaction between him and the student. Says a final-year IT student, “Having access to working professionals while studying helps us groom better for the future. It fills the gap between being a student and turning into a professional.”
