The third edition of Students' EduLife Expo 2011 that took off on April 1 has various engineering education options for Plus-Two students.

The 75 stalls have engineering colleges, standalone business schools, educational consultants, overseas education consultants and training academies, to provide students with options from certificate courses to degree courses, in India and abroad.

Organised by V.G. Ads, the event is being organised in collaboration with Anna University of Technology, Coimbatore. Proprietor of V.G. Ads V. Geetha said the large number of footfalls indicated that students were very keen on engineering.

Interest was more towards degree and diploma courses.

Students who thronged the stall of Kumaraguru College of Technology mostly favoured mechanical engineering.

The enquiries in order of preference were mechanical, computer science, civil, and electronics and communication engineering (ECE). Information Technology followed a poor fifth in choice. Stall representatives said that most of the girls preferred ECE.

The exhibition was earlier inaugurated on Friday by Vice-Chancellor of Anna University of Technology, Coimbatore, K. Karunakaran. Saturday was a day of quizzing by quiz master M. Rangarajan. A talk show on ‘Leadership Skills' by television anchor C. Gopinath will be held on Sunday at 4 p.m.

The exhibition is on at Suguna Kalyana Mandapam and concludes on Sunday.
