    My experience at the college has bee good. The management was cooperating most of the time (not always). The faculty is decent and i had the most amazing seniors who have helped throughout the course. 

    Entrance Exam

    I got admitted through my IIT score but there were also students who got in without giving an entrance test and just making some extra money. 


    For sc, obc, their is very less fees approx 10 to 20 k but for general  the fees is approx 50k per semester. The fee seems to be affordable for all people. There are scholarships too. 


    Placements are very average.Main recruiters are TCS,infosys and Accenture.Its difficult to get a core job in Mechanical and Civil as there is almost no company will come to recruit.So if one wants to go in IT sector then there will be lots of options available to choose from.

    Hostel and Facilities

    No i am not a hostler. But i have heard from my hostel friends that hostel rooms are good. They are clean. Rooms are available only on sharing basis with one two and three companions. No they don't have pg's. Food of mess is quit good as compared to other colleges.


    Dont know much about the alumni network but the seniors are pretty amazing. They have helped me throughout my course in both professional and personal capacity. They have even shared their notes and previous year papers with me which were very helpful during the exam season.


    The faculty are highly qualified.All of them have done their postgraduations.They have deep knowledge of the subjects they taught.The lab staff is highly skilled and one wont find better than them but one thing is same everywhere,one has to learn things by own.Teachers dont pay attention to each and every student so if you are not able to study by your you can face too many problems during your graduations.

    Campus Life

    Campus life is awesome.Infrastructure is good one of the best in Punjab.The labs are well structured and are provided with each and every facility one would required.For sports there  are all the sports facility present and there are various other things that one will come to know once he join the college


    Yes the exams are very much hactic. We have to give 3 sessionals along with one final exam in one semester which comprises of 10 weeks only. Yes, it get tiering sometimes.


    No i don't have any idea about the internship

    Loans and Scholarships

    Yes the college provides number of scholarships. Loan is also sanctioned but i have no idea about the loan as i have not availed any loan. College helps in getting loan to students who could not get their fees arranged
