When we study in college, striving to become a professional - this is education for a living. On the other hand, education for life requires understanding the essential principles of spirituality. This means gaining a deeper understanding of the world, our minds, our emotions, and ourselves. We all know that the real goal of education is not to create people who can understand only the language of machines. The main purpose of education should be to impart a culture of the heart - a culture based on spiritual values.

Students learn engineering concepts, principles, applications and procedures during the classroom lecture sessions. Teachers motivate the students through introducing the course material, providing course connected information to the students and explaining concepts, principles, procedures and practices.

Tutorial Class sessions with small group of students are also conducted once in a week by every course teacher for the purpose of comprehension of knowledge imparted to students in the lecture classes, applying the acquired knowledge in solving simple problems, enhancing analytical abilities to analyze and synthesize problems.

Laboratory and Workshop Sessions are helpful to students in applying the knowledge (Concepts and Principles) for solving problems, development of psychomotor skills, improving observation, measurement and report writing skills, imparting creativity and innovation, developing human skills such as teamwork.

Often seminars/workshops are organized to acquire knowledge and skills in specific subject area of interest which is a gateway to the career building process.Project Work, both mini and major, will provide opportunity to the students to demonstrate their creativity, knowledge and skills. Quality of project work is the primary indication of students’ technical strength..

In addition to offering all the above services, every department offers value added training courses along with regular degree course to make the students industry ready and employable when they complete their degree. These courses are designed by the faculty with the help of industry experts under the guidance of the head of Amrita Center for Industrial Training, Nagercoil.
