My journey at CGC Landran started in the year 2018. I was just a student in the CSE branch with great dreams in my eyes. Little did I know that I would be here living one of those dreams. The college, its loving environment, supportive faculty, training programs, advanced practical learning and visionary management transformed me into a competent candidate. I will always be thankful.
