    Dissatisfied with placements last year, good infrastructure and facilities .
    Placements: You have to crack the entrance test for admissions in any of the courses here. Top ranks will be selected, around 40 seats for general and then reserved seats. This is a 4 year degree programme where you'll learn almost about every stream. Great scope in India as well as abroad. You are eligible for the ADO and HDO exams after this degree completion. You can also be a food inspector, soil inspection officer and many more. Also recruited by various food processing industries. Great opportunities in agribusiness. University have CGPA system, 7 or more than 7 capable is considered good.
    Infrastructure: Good infrastructure having all the facilities like washrooms, Wi-Fi, canteens, individual book banks for all different departments. Have Asia's the largest library in the campus. Labs with international class equipments. But hostels are not so good, old buildings with a lot of damages. Quality of food in mess is average. Medical facilities are also not so good. Great infrastructure for sports but no so good coaches. You'll have both the options for NSO and NSS. You'll have all hockey stadium, cricket ground, cycling velodrome, swimming pools, gym, athletic tracks and all type of games.
    Faculty: Faculty is too good. All the teachers are Ph.D. scholars and scientists. Habe a great research experience and well-equipped with practical knowledge also. Digital teaching technologies also available. But have very hectic lecture schedules and tough examination system. You've to go through 4 rounds of exams in 6 month semester I. e first hourly exams, mid term exams, practical exams and then end term examswith a Vast syllabus. Many of the courses make you industry ready and many will prepare you for lab and field work. This will also help in civil service jobs.
    Other: Our country is agriculture leading nation and more than 60% of our population depends upon agricultural income directly or indirectly. Therefore have a great scope and opportunity in this field.

    PAU- one of the best state agriculture university.
    Placements: Only 20% of the of the students placed in our batch had an average package of 3 lacs. The top recruiting companies include Bayer and Syngenta.

Internships were available last year on campus as well as at companies like Crop Chemical.
    Infrastructure: The infrastructure is very good. The university has play grounds, library, cafe, hotel, etc. Hostels have wi-fi and the rooms are also clean. university has its own hospital, where treatment is free for students.

    Review of PAU, Ludhiana.
    Placements: Students are eligible for placements in the last semester, and they are informed about companies by the placement cell through emails. The highest package offered is about 6.5 lacs per annum, and the average package is 3 lacs per annum. Around 50% of students got placed. After degree, I want to try for a government job in the agriculture field.
    Infrastructure: The infrastructure of our college is very good. Some hostels are also very neat and clean, but the old hostels like hostel-1 and the old girls' hostel have poor quality facilities. Hostels have 2 seater and 4 seater rooms. There are coolers but not AC in rooms. Hostels are very affordable. It has a garden, canteen, mess, television room, and a table tennis room. In the mess, the food quality is above average. There is a proper weekly menu for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Sweets are provided along with dinner.
    Faculty: There are very good teachers, but some of them are not good. They have PhDs. This course makes students industry-ready because we have training programs in the last semester. If you score well in the first hourly and mid-terms, then it is easy to get good marks in finals, but you have to study well.
    Other: I chose this course because of its scope. Every year, a youth fest is conducted in October in which students from different colleges participate, and a guest is invited for prize distribution. Apart from this, an annual function is also conducted in January in which all the sports students are given awards. PAU library is very efficient. It has 3 floors, and all kinds of books related to academics and non-academics are available, and the seating arrangements are very good. Air-conditioners and computers are present. The classrooms have projectors. For sports, the university has well-maintained stadiums like a hockey stadium, cricket stadium, and a football stadium, along with well-trained coaches. Extracurricular activities include debate, art, slogan and writing competitions for which students are awarded by the dean. The university has a student welfare group that is run by students whose function is to financially aid weak students and raise important issues for students' welfare.
