Myself Sabreesh S. I have completed my engineering in the Automobile field in NHCE and have to say that the department has supported me right from my very first day to the last. I would like to thank all my professors for uplifting me in all aspects, be it academically, professionally and personally. We had a good set of hands on experience and plenty of seminars and webinars even though we had off for 2 semesters due to COVID 19. We were given a lot of opportunities which assisted us in discovering our specific fields of interest through various co-curricular and extra-curricular activities.

Being among the few colleges that offer a Bachelor’s degree course on Automobile Engineering, NHCE has a lot on offer. The advantage of being an autonomous college was seen in the tweaking of the syllabus to be on par with the fast changing industry. The staff of the automobile department with their experience, way of teaching and their efforts in bringing enough exposure to the field to the classroom, helped widen my potential and mould me through the years. The efforts of the placement department of the college is commendable, with company specific training, crash courses, mock tests which gave me the confidence and preparation that I needed.
