I am satisfied with this college.

Placements: I don't know the total percentage of students who got placed, but about 70-80% of the students from our course got placed. The highest salary package offered was 5 LPA. Top recruiting companies like ABP, Aaj Tak, Red FM, etc., visit our college for placements. Almost 100% of the students from our course got an internship.

Infrastructure: Labs were good. I never went to the library, so I don't know about it. The hostel was not that good, but it was value for money. So I recommend you join the hostel.
