Teaching of other foreign languages

As globalization, mobility and communication bring the world closer than ever, many technology professionals find that the knowledge of foreign languages gives them a competitive advantage to excel in their chosen fields.

French: French as a global language is widely used in Europe and Canada. The course enhances career opportunities in multinational companies for engineering graduates.

Japanese: Engineering students benefit greatly in receiving instructions in the three Japanese scripts namely, Hiragana, Katakana and Kanji's. As more and more Japanese companies look into tapping the Indian market, knowledge of Japanese is a definite advantage for budding engineers.
