"I can proudly say this college was the perfect choice that I made to nurture my skills and mould my creativity with the right hue of hard work into reality. NCFT has taught me that if you have the passion, fortitude, and persistence to achieve your ambition then that will definitely make you successful. The knowledge which I learned from various talented teachers and the faith from our Founder Principal inspired and encouraged me. I feel proud and honored to be its graduate because whatever I am today is only because of NCFT."
