Infrastructure / Teaching facilities: being a niftian i would like to say that infrastructure and teaching facility wise the one draw back which i used to face with other students is the non availability of books and study materials,though its not always due to the college authority but i guess there should be sufficient number of study materials.

Faculty: faculty's are extremely helpful and technically sound.the way they make things understand is good but need more industry visits so as to improve practical knowledge along with theory.there should be one event of interaction with industry people and students along with faculty members from different cities.
