PlacementsInfrastructureFacultyCrowd & Campus LifeValue for Money
Beautiful college with immense opportunities.
Tips: In order to progress, we need to give decent time and energy towards each course. For B.A. ITM, Cybersecurity courses, we need to pass Statistics course, that is one big hurdle for international students. If you are average or below average student and not willing to put some effort, then please don't choose this college. Every year at least 30-40% of Indian students transfers from this university after first semester as they were not able to pass the Statistics course.
Likes (Value for money): College has very good facilities in terms of labs and faculty for the course fee they are charging. Fee is very reasonable when compared with other private and public universities offering same type of facilities and opportunities to students. Overall it's a good value for money.
Dislikes (Internships): There will be an internship fair in the campus but most of the companies are business and logistics related. In addition, number of companies offering internships are very less. Guidance for internships are not much in the university as even students with good skills are not able to get the internships.

It’s a decent sized vibrant college with adequate facilities to excel ourselves.
Tips: Apply for GA positions before coming here. Form a group of 4 or 6 and rent apartments while in India and directly come to it in the USA. Try to avoid coming as placed in somebody else's room. Come to this university only if you are above average student and willing to put effort into studies. Arrange money for your expenses for at least 6 months. Choose nice roommates.
Likes (Safety): We have a good campus safety department round the clock and they have a toll-free number which you can dial at any time in case of emergencies. We have a laser team making grounds on the campus round the clock ensuring the safety of students and maintaining a safe environment on campus.
Dislikes (Post study jobs): We have career fairs for post-study jobs but they are mostly for finance and business guys. I don't have any idea about sponsor visas and salaries. But the salary package is decent enough if you get a job at the campus fair. For that, you need to build a network through networking.
