Since their inception PGP Institutions have set high but achievable goals. We strive to provide an academically rewarding environment by exposing our students to quality education. Our focus is “Students must learn”. Our founder aims at fostering an environment of intellectual vigour, excitement of discovery through quality education and disciplined life and dedication to make PGP Educational Institutions emerge as a modern “Gurukulam” of the millennium.
PGP is a beautifully designed world class institution located in Namakkal away from noise and pollution. Spread out in an area of 200 acres, abutting National Highway NH - 7, the college is well connected by buses from the neighboring towns of Salem, Karur, Tiruchengode, Coimbatore just to name a few. Thiruchirapalli is about 2 hours away, while a bus ride to Salem takes a little over an hour. College buses operate in required adequacy to connect to the neighbouring areas.
In conformity with our global objective we have students in our colleges from all over the world. This diversity opens the doors for our students to interact and share global ideas and culture.
Discipline is the order of the day and the college adheres to this very strictly. Attendance levels generally range between 95% - 100%
There is choice for everything in today’s lifestyle, and the same goes for education. Our students have the luxury of in-house counselling by appointed professionals to guide and advise them in their career path.
PGP offers merit scholarships to deserving students. Besides the SC / ST / MBC scholarships, a student who secures a minimum of 85% marks and stands first or second in his / her branch is awarded this scholarship
It is mandatory for every student to be a part of at least one student body like Mechanical / Electrical / Electronics Engineers, Indian society of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) (USA), Computer society of India (CSI), Indian Society for Technical Education (ISTE). Students are offered ample opportunities for participation in NSS, Youth Red Cross Society activities, etc.
The college has signed a Memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the University of West Bohemia (UWB) Czech Republic. The MoU provides lecturing by a faculty member of UWB at PGP in the subjects of common interest. It also includes deputation of a selected group of students to UWB for a period of 6 - 8 weeks. This may be extended to one semester potentially leading to the award of a certificate of proficiency in the chosen area.
We are also working on drawing up an MoU with a few other universities in Germany and USA. Upon completion this shall enhance opportunities for students to a large extent.
PGP College has an excellent infrastructure located in a serene and green environment. The labs and workshops are state-of-the-art. Faculties are well qualified and dedicated to complement these features. In addition to class room teaching with modern educational aids, students have an advantage of value added courses and personality development programmes.
Training and placement are the most important activities from the management’s stand point. Our own sugar factories, hospitality industry, tour and travel, offer immense training and employment opportunities to our students. In addition to the above, close tie-ups with other organisations provide an added advantage to our students. The college assist the students in arranging for “in-plant” industrial training. The training and placement cell is committed to finding the optimal student placement.
