The said study tour has greatly impacted the students academically , mentally,
morally and spiritually. The stereotyped and monotonous classroom activity
fails to instill and infuse a feeling of
thrill and excitement of reading science . The Study tour gave them a hands-on
experience at applying their knowledge in the practical fields. This tour also
gave them an exposure to fast changing field of science and technology.

students expressed their satisfaction over tour. They narrated their delightful
and exciting experience of during the visit. Some of them expressed their
desire to go for a course in MCA and IT Management after graduation.
