Today is an important day to KCT as we welcomed into our community a large set of students and their parents! Swagatham is an initiation ceremony of the fresher students of engineering and technology of the batch 2019 - 2023 where they are taken into our hands to be taught, mentored and guided for the next four years, to become the individuals that they want to be with full effectiveness. Through the day the students and parents were guided towards knowing the college, its opportunities and possibilities and understand the ecosystem in which they will engage.
