Centre of Excellence

Centre of Excellence [CoE]

CSIT  has established four Centers of Excellence in association with the reputed multinational companies- namely BOSCH, Parker-Hannifin, Onward Technologies and E-Splendid.  CSIT is the on various modules  and only private Engineering College in Chhattisgarh to open Center of Excellences. The COEs have been established with intentions to connect the studentes with latest industrial technologies, and to bridge the academic gaps in the syllabus.

The Centers offers training on various modules to the students of CSIT and also to the students of other collges. The trainers are specially trained by the companies to imbibe the requisite technical-expertise in the trainees. On the successful completion of the  training on any module, the trainees are provided certificates by the company, which proves to be a valuable asset. More details about the Center of Excellence can be found below:
