Overall, the college is awesome in every aspect.

Placements: As the first batch of this course is going to pass out in 2023, we can't say anything about placements. But I guess that it is going to be very good. JNU is just next to IIT-D, so it will be very easy for companies to notice it.

Infrastructure: Currently, the separate building for our course is under construction, which must be completed by the end of 2022. The hostel is just like any other government college. Wi-Fi is available throughout the campus and has a speed of 150 Mbps, which is awesome.

It is an average college and could be much better.

Placements: The first batch will be out in 2023. So it's uncertain about how good the placements could be. A placement cell is there at JNU, and we are hoping for better placement opportunities. But as of now, there is no such activity going on. Requests are being made from students about on-campus internship opportunities, but there is no proper response from our administration.

Infrastructure: Facilities available can be rated as average. It is a new school in JNU and it's been only 2 years since it started. We have good ...

Experience at JNU is unique and fun, with good placements and awesome college life.

Placements: JNU started B.Tech with an M.Tech course in 2018, and its first batch will pass out in 2023. M.Tech course has started way earlier and has placements, and our batch would be sitting for placements with them. Last year the highest salary package offered was 21 LPA. Roughly 40% of the students got placed, and the rest of them applied for higher studies.

Infrastructure: SOE, i.e., the School of Engineering building, is currently in the SCSS. Labs have all the equipment and air-conditioners, and the whole campus has Wi-Fi. There are 2 libraries, of which one is SCSS library, and the other is a central library which is open 24x7 except for few hours in the morning for cleaning purposes. The building is well-maintained and clean. The hostel cost is Rs. 11,000 per semester, and the hostel condition is decent with a proper room number. Mess food is quite better as c...
