The students of the Institute excel not only in curricular activities but also in co-curricular and extra-curricular activities viz., participation in Science Activity Centre (GUSAC), Professional Bodies like IEEE, CSI, ISTE, IETE, IGBC, ISOI, PES EWB etc, Cultural Club (Kalakrithi), sports competitions and social service activities through NCC,NSS, Rotaract etc.
