Faculty members are good but infrastructure and placement is average.

Placements: We are in 1st year right now but our seniors got decent placement. But till date, we have not got a summer internship. Most of my friends from different colleges got internship so as per my opinion placement in our college is average. Many big companies came for placement like HUL, HDFC, etc.

Infrastructure: Infrastructure of our college is average. Classrooms are good. Library is sufficient for students. College doesn't provide Wi-Fi facility we have to use our own internet. I don't stay in a hostel so I can't ...
