Amazing college campus, crowd diversity, faculty and total college experience.

Placements: About 80-90 per cent of students every year get placed in the finest companies like Accenture. The highest package was Rs 11 lakh per annum and the minimum was Rs 5 lakh per annum. Accenture was the top recruiting company of my course. About 50% of students got internships from our college in BIOERA, IISER Pune and municipal corporation climate division. Lab technician, junior researcher, sales executive, etc. are the roles offered.

Infrastructure: Facilities and infrastructure are crisp and crystal. Labs are fully furnished and highly equipped. No shortage in terms of tables per student or the requirements and the library is fully filled with all sorts of books with updated editions. Issuing of library cards and other timings are very strictly maintained. Classrooms are equipped with a sound system for lectures facilitation and a PowerPoint projector.

I suggest you choose this college if you are interested in research and higher studies.

Placements: Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, placements were not much good here. I don't remember any company visited here this year for placements. However, in the normal situation, most of the students get placed from here. But many of the students choose to opt for higher studies. The average salary offered is around Rs. 20,000-25,000 per month.

Placements: I belong to batch 2021 and currently a student of third-year B.Sc. chemistry. The placement scenario here is quite average as most of the students prefer to go for further studies and do their Masters and PhDs. A lot of students get selected for prestigious institutes such as IITs, IISC, Pune University etc. We haven't received any information regarding placements this year, although last year, some companies hired students.
