Student Experiences

Myself R. Arun Kumar. I am studying I Ph.D in this department. I very much like this department since it is like my second home to me and also the facilities and the faculty of the department are the best that I have ever received. The setup of the department and also the syllabus framed for the degree programme kindles me interest to aspire even more developments in extension discipline. I have the aim of becoming a Professor and I believe that I am progressing towards the right pathway by selecting this campus and also this wonderful department.

I am Weijimlu Tayang and I am from the state of Arunachal Pradesh. Even though I am from other state, I never ever felt like that since the hospitality provided by the department starting from my admission to the department until now is simply awesome. I thought that language would be a barrier to survive in the department, but the faculty as well as the students are very friendly towards me and we converse each other comfortably in English. This shows that the faculty and the students are well trained and are experienced both in vocabulary and subject knowledge too. I purposively selected TNAU after hearing from many vocals. But when it is being experienced in real life, I am really honoured to study in this department.
