Alagappa Chettiar Government College of Engineering and Technology (ACGCET), Karaikudi is one of the premier educational institutions in Tamilnadu. It was brought into being on 21st of July, 1952 under the impressive magnanimity of Dr. R. M. Alagappa Chettiar. The fore founder, Dr. Alagappa Chettiar, being a great altruist, pivoted this educational institution with one basic vision – to metamorphose Karaikudi from a rural region to an educational uninhibited township.
The Department of CSE started its glorious journey by laying a foundation for passionate students to get interested in optimizing the computing world since 2000. Even though our college has been established in 1952, in a short span of time, the footprints of our department in the successful path has encouraged and led the way to upcoming students also. One of such notable footprints could be the success of our students in "Namma Ooru Website" contest. Also the most special aspect is that instead of spoon-feeding the students, it has been promoting self-learning along with the guidance of our encouraging head of the department and much talented professors.
