This institute is an excellent place for design students with full freedom to learn and grow. The course is in inter-disciplinary which allows for a holistic environment to learn and expand your horizons. Being at Kanpur, the place sometimes feels dull, but the campus life makes up for that with the active student clubs and fests here.

As of the Year 2017 36 students enrolled for placements in the college of Civil department and only two of the students got placed in the core companies, offering them up a package of around 5 to 6 lacs. While the remaining 34 students got placed in non-core companies with the pay package of around 8 to 9 lacs, with mostly being IT companies for marketing firms, banking jobs. A total batch placement percentage of hundred percent was seen for the batch of 2017 of Civil department and only 7% of the same got placed under core companies.
Hence, I would recommend you to not to join the college if core placement is the only parameter you are judging it on.
Rest be assured that even though you fail to do well in academics, still the college ensures you of a decent paying job of around 8 lacs.
I hope this helps.
Cheers!

For getting a rank under the badge of 10000 in JEE Mains in Common Rank List, you need at least 180 marks or more than that out of 360 to be in safer hands. If you found it useful then upvote or thumbs up my answer. Good luck.
