Yes. I will recommend you to become a part of it.
Placements: At LPU, you will have many opportunities for the placement department to collaborate with the placement departments of all the big colleges, like IITs, NITs, etc. (IIITS), so its amazing for you to be here. The department is so lovely and chilly. Last year, the highest and lowest packages went to INR 30 and 15 lacs, respectively. The department is amazing, so you will definitely get something.
Infrastructure: The course is tough as the topic concepts are so big. The course department is not so supportive. You will have given a lot of work but you will not be getting support from the department in this course. Basically, in this college, you are going to face a lot of problems. The department does not follow policies.
Faculty: The faculty is so amazing, always ready to guide you to solve your queries. They will always be there to solve your problems. They will help you make the industry ready. They provide tutorial classes where we have close interaction. Teachers are so supportive.

I do not prefer to take admission at this college.
Placements: 70 percent of students are placed in our class. The highest package is INR 6 lacs, and the lowest is INR 2 lacs. Wipro, HCL, etc. are the top recruiting companies. 10 percent of students get internships. The classes are beautiful.
Infrastructure: Our course does not have many amenities. So not interesting about the course. But we do it for the degree only. There are not many facilities in the course, but local facilities are available. The quality of the food in the hostel was bad. And the water supply is not properly maintained in the hostel.
Faculty: The teacher's qualification is not at least a Ph.D. in their subject. Does not make students ready for the industry. More difficult exams are here, and three exams were held in only a single semester. And the pass percentage is 70 percent for students in the exam, even for an average student.
Other: I chose this course only for my degree.

College is absolutely worth it in terms of campus, placements, and everything else.
Placements: After completing their graduation from LPU, students mostly prefer placement as the placement ratio is excellent at LPU; an average of INR 6 lacs per annum is offered every year and students who are highly skilled and have good academic results are mostly placed in good companies.
Infrastructure: The infrastructure and residential facilities at LPU are excellent. Coming to the hostel, rooms are highly furnished with attached washrooms. Mess food and local canteens have quality taste and are hygienic. Students love to stay and study in hostels during the weekends too.
Faculty: At Lovely Professional University, the faculty are highly qualified and full of experience. If we talk about semester exams, they are conducted in a good manner with a lot of strictness that encourages the student to do their work on their own, and 40 is a pass percent out of 100.
Other: LPU is among the best private universities in India. Recently, the university was awarded an A+ grading, which is a very proud moment for LPU. It also gives an average package of 6 LPA and on a daily basis, weekly events happen at LPU, which also gives students non-curriculum support.

MCA from LPU at a glance.
Placements: Here is information about the Master of Computer Applications program at Lovely Professional University in 2021. The number of students who get placed successfully every year is 99%. The highest, lowest, and average packages of our course offered are INR 30 lacs, INR 3 lacs, and INR 9 lacs per annum, respectively. The top companies that come every year for recruiting are Meta, Zomato, and Swiggy. The roles offered are web developer, data scientist, and system analyst.
Infrastructure: The facilities and infrastructure available for our course have high-speed internet access available everywhere throughout the campus. The classrooms have biometrics for the attendance of the students, the food menu keeps changing now and then and the quality of the food provided to us is very decent.
Faculty: The MCA teachers at this lovely professional university are quite qualified but they lack experience in terms of practical knowledge. The learning is mostly confined to books; practical knowledge is not imparted to the students on a day-to-day basis. Some professors are also really over-obsessed with their achievements.
