The Tamil Engineering Foundation is continuously helping the Faculty of Engineering by donating 25 Drawing Instruments to the Engineering Students Union (ESU). This event took place on 25th April 2017. Presently, ESU lend drawing instruments to the students when they need it for a small amount of rent. This rental plan was first proposed by the first batch and continues successfully for the second and third batch too. Many financially disadvantaged students benefitted by this instrument rental plan. As the ESU wanted to buy additional instruments to suffice the need of additional student intake, the donation was very timely and helpful with adding the capital. We wholeheartedly thank the donors Tamil Engineers Foundation for their invaluable assistance.
