    Remarks

    Overall the facilities provided by the college are great. There are some pros and cons of every college but i think in this case the pros of the college are hgreater than the cons. I chose admission bcoz the infra of the college was just too good.


    Entrance Exam

    I was given admission through my class 12th mark with my jee mains marks.


    Fees

    The fee of the college was manageable for but i cannot speak for everybody. I have paid around Rs 60k per year as my tution fee. The fee of the hostel was pretty cheap during my time its was around 10k per year.


    Placements

    Placement scenario of my University is good means they provide course in a good way. A few IT and a few non IT companies came for placement during my time. It was good mix as for others college there were only IT companies.


    Hostel and Facilities

    The hostel facility is provided by the college with seperate boys and girls hostel. Some of the basic facilities provided by the hostel authorities are study table, chair, bed, beddings, internet, common room etc.


    Alumni

    We always have. They share everything with us. their past pleasures. experiences. and all. Great to have alumni meets at our college.


    Faculty

    There are different categories for faculty.Everyone has very good qualification.And professors who have done their doctorate on their area of teaching are given more priority compared to others.


    Campus Life

    The campus life of the college is great. It provides a lot of opportunities to showcase your hidden talent. Moreover there are events going about in different fields and the management also encourages you to participate in them actively. But make sure you keep a balance between the academics and activities as I messed up my 1 semester because of this.


    Academics

    Nope.My labs are probably the best.We have fun with faculty after we complete our work.And learn more than what is required.(not everyday but most of the days we do.


    Internships

    I don’t know if the college now provides internship or not but during my time it did not provide any internship. Those interested had to do on their own but I did not do it.


    Loans and Scholarships

    Every year students with 90% attendance and reasonable grades whose parents have an income of less than 1 lpa get scholarships and the college provides scholarships based on cgpa.

    Entrance Exam

    I was given admission through my +2 mark and mains mark combined together in the all India stream where i secured 124th rank. And I love mechanical engineering because I am a hard guy both mentally and physically. Thought I am gonna rock. so i have chosen. here was no interview but passing all those exams were far more hell than facing a 100 interviews.


    Fees

    Fee is probably the best in this university.No other university would provide such an esteemed education for such a fee structure. I have paid the Sem fee of around Rs 56,000.Alltogether we can come out of engineering with an amount of 7 lakh or less spent on it unless we spend much of our time at the canteen.


    Placements

    Average package was around 5.5 lpa.More than 90% get placed every year.Placement is pretty good.Almost all the major companies visit.But they require highly efficient people so the intake of major companies is limited like anywhere else.But comparitively other comapnies like TCS take a lot of students.


    Hostel and Facilities

    I reside in the hostel.We have all kinds of rooms.The university's aim is to make children adapt to normal living conditions. So there are no AC's. But they are not the best.


    Alumni

    We always have. They share everything with us. their past pleasures. experiences. and all. Great to have alumni meets at our college.


    Faculty

    There are different categories for faculty.Everyone has very good qualification.And professors who have done their doctorate on their area of teaching are given more priority compared to others.


    Campus Life

    The college puts extra emphasis on extracurricular activities. I haven’t seen any discrimination btw girls and boys or any discrimination of any kind. Also the facilities provided by the college are good.


    Academics

    There is no difficulty in conduction of the exams and every thing is done smoothly. There is no rush too. The labs are in good shape and thus no problem during the practicals as well. JIust one issue that the result is declared a bit late.


    Internships

    Yes University provide the internships and i have only little bit of experience. They are done in 7th semester. Stipend is also provided in some these internships.


    Loans and Scholarships

    Every year students with 90% attendance and reasonable grades whose parents have an income of less than 1 LPA get scholarships and the college provides scholarships based on CGPA. The top 2 percentile receives 25% fee remittance. And the top 10 percentile receives 10% fee remittance.
