Good placement, Good study environment, and nice facilities.
Placements: In my college the placement started at the end of third year that is in month of July and now while I am writing this review its the end of the month of October and about 70% and above from my branch have already got placed in some of the companies, some have even grabbed more than 1 offers. Now talking about the top companies visiting my colleges till now were ORACLE, JUSPAY, TEJAS, KEYSIGHT and some more. They offered an internship for (3 to 6) month with stipend of (35 to 45 thousand) and a PPO of ( 12 to 24 LPA). There were also 4 to 5 companies which came with offer letters ranging from (7 to 10 LPA) leaving the good paying companies there were some companies with offer letter of (3.5 to 6 LPA) and till this time there are about 15 to 20 companies which visited our college which is much better than other private colleges in which some of my friends are studying.
Infrastructure: Wi-Fi, Labs, classrooms, medical facilities and library these are quite good I mean above average, but when its comes to game or sports its not, because we have a small campus area and the rules followed here is more like a school than a college so you won't be getting any real fun for playing any sports, and talking about food (canteen) actually there are lot of stalls providing food just out side the GATE of our campus so 90% of students prefer to go out and have lunch only some teachers and staff member enjoy there food in the canteen, how ever I have also been to the canteen for 2 to 3 times and its not all that bad, but I enjoy eating out side with my friends because the rate of food available in our canteen is same as that of outside stalls.
Faculty: One of the things that I love about my college is the helpful nature of our teacher, they may help you in any way either its related to studies or your personal problems, teacher here are very cooperative and knowledgeable as well. We have 2 mid semester and 1 end semester exams which are not that difficult as our passing percentage is above 95 and some who fails are either due to absence in the exam or not attending the lab exams.
Other: I chose this course because as an ECE student I have chance for both it as well as core sectors and my marks is also a factor, I wanted computer Science but no worries ECE was also an option for me, I was not like a computer Science student in 12th I only wanted CS as IT industries are growing well and many of my well wishers gave me a lot of information about advantage of choosing CS or IT.
