The Career Development Cell @ Alpha College of Engineering

The placement record and skill developmentcourses that an engineering college offers are the prominent features that make it renowned and sought after by budding engineers. The major courses offered by an engineering college are important, however even more important are the pedagogies followed in imparting knowledge to the students. The placement record and the efforts of a college in aiding students getting placed vouch for the excellence and success of the college.

At the Alpha College of Engineering a lot of thought and effort have been put into empower the students and to mould them into confident and talented individuals who have the capability to get placed and be successful in the engineering field of their choice. Placement of students has two aspects to it. The first phase of placement is the placement itself. The second phase concerns the recruiters. It is not sufficient to get the students placed in reputed companies. Rather, true success comes when the companies are happy to have recruited students from our institution and our students are proving themselves as capable engineers.

In this effort, the Alpha College of Engineering has been running the Career Development Cell. It keeps the students engaged right from the beginning of the academic year with various training programmes by the in-house faculty and corporate trainers from companies such as Ethnus and Futurenet.

Keeping in mind the importance of communication skills - which includes verbal and non-verbal communication, the students are trained to be effective, efficient communicators who can express themselves with clarity and coherence. A significant change has been observed among the students after undergoing these training programmes in terms of increase in confidence and personality development.

Apart from conducting these programmes the CDC organises Mega Job Fairs that attract participants who number in the thousands. A major part of them get placed in career paths that they desire.

The students of Alpha have been placed in esteemed companies such as CTS, Infosys, HP, CSS Corp, Accord Technocare Pvt. Ltd., IBM, TCS, Symantec Sutherland Global Services, Mphasis, Arobot, Enchanter Corporation, HCL Talent Care, Promantis Inc., S10 Health Care Pvt. Ltd., Bharathi Airtel, Futurenet and AGS Health.

The Career Development Cell at Alpha – a guaranteed placement engineeringcollege, has played an important role in shaping the career paths of students by means of wholesome development in personality and giving a head start to their careers.
