Thomas Jose MCA 2004
Assistant Manager IT and Online Sales,Strontium Technology Pte.Ltd,Singapore "MCA was not initially in my mind after completing my Bachelors degree. It was by chance and my father's recommendation I selected Rajagiri for my MCA degree. It turned out to be the best choice I ever made. Rajagiri helped me to transform myself to a complete professional and a good human being. The courses were well taught and all my teachers were very friendly and approachable. I am really proud to say that I am a Rajarigian."
Arun P. Krishnan – MCA 2006 MCA 2006
Rajagiri was initially an institution of convenience for me. I chose it because it was within daily commuting distance for me from home. Looking back now, Rajagiri has been the best decision of my life. I attribute all success in my career and happiness in life to my teachers in the MCA department. When I was a confused student at the crossroads of life, my teachers donned multiple roles as mentors, friends, life & career guides, counselors and much more. That Rajagiri DNA will always be in me and wherever I go, I identify as a true blue Rajagirian. The faculty of the department of computer applications at Rajagiri are like family to me and words cannot express my gratitude to them for having helped me choose and excel in my career.
Aravind V S MCA 2007
When I joined for MCA at Rajagari College I must admit I wasn't the happiest person, but it was not because of the college but how far it was from my hometown. As born and brought up in Thiruvananthapuram in a close-knit family moving to another city for Postgrad was a daunting thought for me. It was a stroke of genius from my father that he insisted that I should join Rajagiri that its time for me to step up and achieve new things in life. Reluctantly I agreed to it, but when I look back after these many years I should say I would never want to do my MCA in any other college other than Rajagiri. What makes Rajagiri soo special is that it does things differently. It's not alone focused on the academic side of things but how to mold a better model of yourself, in other words, it sets you up for any challenges lying ahead. Rajagiri does this with the backbone of strongly driven MCA staff members, who will go that extra mile to make sure you step up to the challenge. At Rajagiri you are guaranteed to meet more than a few likeminded classmates many of whom will end being your friends for life and adds color to your college life. I was able to go to MCA fests representing the college and stand in front of a crowd and perform. It might not seem big to you but being a guy with stage fear all my life it was a huge confidence booster to me, we even won prices which was a bonus. Rajagiri does that, it will give you the platform. I still remember vividly my first day at the college, were our principal Injody sir said to us, "Be like a lotus, though from the mud reaching for the stars."
Joby Joy CEO Pinkerala.com, A division of GDSN Ireland.
"Our experience working with Rajagiri college Kalamassery interns has been excellent. The students that have been placed with our company demonstrate sound practice, discipline , and a strong willingness to learn and apply knowledge in the industry. Their enthusiasm and preparedness to enter the work force have made them strong interns and employment applicants. We have had great success transitioning former RCSS interns into full-time employment when their internship ends, and we look forward to our continued relationship with the college." We also appreciate the great effort of the faculties from RCSS.
