My four years at CGC Landran have been excellent. Every moment attached to this place has become a memory that I will cherish forever. The years spent here have been full of fun & frolic learning opportunities which sometimes had the academic grind that one has to go through. Everything that I have achieved, I owe it to the Teachers who always believed in helping and guiding the students. My placement in Capgemini is the outcome of placement cell's efforts, and my diligence.
