All things about the college are good. It is a better place to study, and placement is also satisfac

Placements: About 70% to 80% of students got placement every year. The highest package after B.Sc Degree is about INR 70,000 and the lowest is INR 25,000. Most of the research Institutes are linked together and after M.Sc, we can get that opportunity to work there. About 60% of students got the internship.

I am satisfied with good infrastructure and facilities, but placements were average in 2020.

Placements: You cannot expect any placements from our college if you are not one of the college's toppers, as the number of students getting placed from our college is very less. However, opportunities are available. The placement procedure is quite smooth, but internships are not available for all the students. You can refer to various sites to get an internship.

Infrastructure: Bharti Vidyapeeth University has an amazing campus, and the infrastructure is excellent. The entire campus is lush green, and separate hostels are...

Very good college in terms of faculty, teaching and infrastructure.

Placements: Many companies from the pharmaceutical industry, food industry, etc., visit the college to conduct placements. If you are qualified in CSIR NET, many job opportunities are available. Overall, the college is good to get a job.

Absolutely dissatisfied because placements are not provided as promised during admissions.

Placements: The college doesn't provide placements for bachelor's, in fact, there are no placements for seniors (Masters) as well. Companies don't visit the campus. The college suggests companies though, and students can apply on their own. Students opt for internships, but I am not sure if the stipend is offered or not.

Infrastructure: The infrastructure of our college is really good. Labs are well designed, and our college provides the best practise materials than any other biotechnology college in Pune. The canteen is pr...

I am not much satisfied with the college.

Placements: The college didn't provide placements to our department. Few students rarely get an opportunity to continue their (paid) PhD from IRSHA which is a research lab associated with Bharati Vidyapeeth Deemed University. Otherwise, as far as I know, placements are not offered by the college.

Infrastructure: The infrastructure of our college is better than many other biotechnology colleges in Pune. Laboratories are well-equipped. There is no canteen present in the department, but an MBBS college canteen is available at ...
