Pillai College of Engineering (PCE) seeks to develop in its students a sound technical foundation and to enhance the natural curiosity of its engineers. We believe that a successful engineer is one who compliments his deep theoretical knowledge with an intuitive practical approach. Pillai College of Engineering (PCE) was formerly known as Pillai Institute of Information Technology, Engineering, Media Studies and Research (PIIT) from 1999 to 25th April, 2016.
Our mission is to develop professional engineers with respect for the environment and make them responsible citizens in technological development both from an Indian and global perspective. This objective is fulfilled through quality education, practical training and interaction with industries and social organizations.
Bytestream happens to be the most awaited event of CSI-PCE. It is the committee’s annual technical magazine’s launch which is graced by the presence of renowned industrial tycoons who share their insights with budding engineers of this generation. The magazine itself is a collection of amazing technological articles and interviews of successful industrial personas of the IT sector. CSI-PCE has also managed to introduce out of the box concepts like study circles, apart from Bytestream, for students to showcase and hone their technical abilities among their peers.
