Absolutely satisfied because of campus life.
Placements: Placements at Thapar University is top-notch. I was in the electrical branch so in my branch round, 90% of the students who sat for placements. In the computer science branch, 100% of the students who sat for placements. The highest package offered to electrical students was around 32 LPA by Optum. The lowest was around 5 LPA and average had to be 9 LPA. Top recruiting companies were Optum, American Express, Blackrock, ZS Associate, Bajaj, Nestled, Maruti, Deloitte, etc. Almost 80% of students from the electrical branch got internships on campus, and the rest, 20%, either opted for a project semester on campus itself or an off-campus internship. The top roles offered were analyst, software engineer, electrical engineer, trainee, etc.
Infrastructure: The infrastructure at Thapar was top-class. From classrooms to hostels, everything was just amazing. Wi-Fi was enabled in the whole campus out there. The college has amazing library in a 5-story building equipped with group discussion rooms, washrooms, and Wi-Fi-enabled centrally air-conditioned rooms. The hostels were also very good having tv rooms, night canteen, gym room, reading room, etc. The mess food was amazing and very hygienic, with a variety of options serving as buffet system.
Faculty: The teachers were really helpful and well qualified, either completing their Ph.D. or have already completed their Ph.D. The teaching quality depend on the teacher but overall, I can say it was above average. And yes, the course curriculum is relevant to the industry standards. There were mid-semester exams and end-semester exams, and they were of a moderately difficult level. If the student has attended the lectures and is disciplined enough, he/she will easily go through the college exams.
Other: The campus life at Thapar is legit wow. Like whatever a student dreams in his/her college life, Thapar offers everything, which includes fests, events, personal development through societies, etc.

Don't forget to join a society in your first year.
Placements: Placement for the computer science batch was the best till last year, giving the highest average package of around 16 lacs per annum, but since the recession, the placement has dropped for the computer science batch but the mechanical placement went really well, around 10 lacs per annum. Electronic and electrical branches were also fine during the recession, but only computers got effected.
Infrastructure: The infrastructure of our college is one of the best; hostels look like hotels, with everyday room cleaning done with a single text on WhatsApp. We have one of the best tracks on our ground that a college can afford: 3–4 basketball grounds, a huge grass field for sports like football and cricket, hostels that look too great, lecture halls that look superb. It is a 250-acre land with every facility possible, from a barber shop to regular Kirana stores inside our campus.
Faculty: Like every college here that is as hard as JEE Main or Advance, they are pretty easy to score and get easily placed. Semester exams are more like board exams. You have to assign projects, maybe a PPT or a tutorial copy for a subject for grading, with your semester exams for grading.
Other: Make a lot of friends and join a lot of society. Years later, you can drop some and forget to enjoy your college life.

Decent placement but high fees .
Placements: 95 percent of students in my branch (computer engineering) get placed every year with an average of INR 13 LPAs at Microsoft, Apple (for some years), etc. The highest package of the year 2023 is INR 50 LPA offered to 5+ students; the average package of all the branches is INR 12 LPA.
Infrastructure: The labs are pretty good here, the classrooms are air-conditioned, and the library at Tiet is quite spacious and big. The library is one of the best libraries any college can have. The first-year hostels are pretty average, but the hostels allotted to 2nd, 3rd, and 4th-year students are really nice and one of the best hostels for a B.Tech college in India, better than IITs; Wi-Fi speed is decent—not too good, not too bad; and the food in the mess is good.
Faculty: The teachers are pretty average here; they don't seem to care much; the curriculum is better than other colleges but still not up to market standards; the exams are not that easy, but yes, if you study one week before the exam, you can score good marks. Tiet follows relatively strict grading, so the CGPA is allotted according to it and is different for every subject.
Other: The crowd is pretty nice in Thapar; the campus is 250+ and has almost everything we need. The events and fests are decent; we have societies for almost everything. Decent scholarship opportunities are present according to CGPA and need-based for financially weaker sections since the feels are very high.

Infrastructure: The infrastructure is really good and well maintained over an area of 300 acres. The facility for Wi-Fi could be found all across the campus without any glitches. Also, our college has Asia's 7th largest library, which is a very nice place to be seated and do the respective work. Mess facilities, on the other hand, are also great and have good, nutritious and tasty food.
Faculty: The faculty members are well qualified and really knowledgeable. They are really friendly and easily approachable. Yes, the curriculum is well structured, making students ready for the current industry demands. Talking about the difficulty of the examination, it is easy to crack if studied well enough .

Faculty: Teachers are not so helpful but are very highly qualified with Ph.D.s in their respective departments. The course content is somewhat relevant. The exams are tough; you can not just study one day before and expect to pass.
