Academic Support & Guidance

Changes happening in the world’s academic arena are drastic. As education transforms at a rapid pace, it is important for students to hone their skills and be prepared for any and all challenges that may arise. The advancements in technology and quick transfer of ideas and information have converted the world into a ‘global village’. The opportunities for growth and development have increased resulting in heavy competition, and the same intensifies when considering a highly populated country such as India. When students graduate from an institution, they must be trained to face the difficulties and work under pressure. The key to a successful future is being ready and willing to face problems and successfully overcoming them, for which mere subject knowledge does not suffice. Students need to be catered to and sharpened in all aspects. Keeping all of this in mind, the Alpha Engineering College has provided Academic Support and Guidance Programmes for the students to give them a head start and launch into their respective careers with confidence.

English & Foreign Language Development Cell
English is the library language of the world, the lingua franca that connects diverse people and helps them share ideas. This being the situation, it is vital that students are well-versed in English and are able converse with confidence. When opportunities to go abroad present themselves, language must not be a barrier. For this reason, Alpha Engineering College in Chennai has set up the English and Foreign Language Development Cell to impart speaking and writing skills in English, French, Japanese, Chinese and Spanish. Knowing foreign languages enable our students to present themselves well in the global arena and pursue their dreams successfully.

Minimum Learning Material (MLM)
Minimum Learning Material comes as a boon for students. It is an online support system that helps students prepare for the university examinations. It includes e-books for theory and practical papers (Anna University framed syllabus), key point summaries, question banks and lab manuals with sample results for revision throughout their study - which collaterally help during the crunch time before exams,.
