Reading is to the mind what exercise is to the body. - Joseph Addison

The Department of English plays a vital role in improving linguistic and communication skills of the students from different backgrounds. Special attention is provided to the students of First year engineering with a view of helping them to get rid of their inhibition and boost up their confidence in facing the university examinations. A computer- aided lab installed with Anna University recommended software is used regularly to impart effective training on the four integrated language skills (LSRW).

The Department of English identifies talents of the students and sends them to other colleges for participating in various competitions. Our students prove to be talented enough to bring glory to our institution by winning prizes.

An English staff is in charge of the ‘Literary Club’ to involve the students in competitions. The Department of English also trains students in Master of Ceremony for various programmes conducted in the college.
