Show of incompetence, poor work ethics and madness.
Placements: The process has not begun thus far. It would not be right to comment yet. However, the Career Counselling Department is active enough. The Man in charge of career counselling is approachable and good nature. Moreover, the specialisation professor gives real time advice.
Infrastructure: The building infrastructure is good enough, with sanitation and hygiene. The cleaners are always seen active. There are ample dustbins is every nook and corners. However, the technological infrastructure is upsettingly poor. The Wi-Fi never works and it feels like a waste or poor use of our money.
Faculty: The teachers have mostly been supportive enough. Some professors have been available even off working hours. Almost None of them have been reasonably rude or appropriate, barring a few instances. However, the marks distribution in the previous exam was unfair and insensible because by the end, all of us had to rush our time.

Experiences so far in the university, above average placement with decent packages.
Placements: Around 60% student were placed this year from different courses. Approximately, most the student grabbed a decent package falling from u20b93 to u20b912 LPA. Many top companies such as TCS, Adani power, Bandhan bank for legal consultancy, etc. Recruited students from our college. Every professional course is offered by our college excluding medical education which might be introduce in few upcoming months that also may encourages almost all types of purpose related to the courses. University itself has it's own dedicated framework for assisting in the career.
Infrastructure: Yes all the facilities like Wi-Fi labs classrooms and library are available. All the facilities were of very good quality and all the medical facilities are available at the earliest convenience. I also agree with the fact that hostel facilities are quite upto the required standards with heavily function staff and co-operative senior administrators.
Faculty: All the faculty members are very well versed and qualified to do what is needed for general needs of the students. They are also very co-operative when it comes to any kind of a help that the student needs at the very moment. Curriculum so far have been quite decent and satisfactory but still needs some update.
Other: I'm currently enrolled in the 5 year integrated law course I. e. B.A. LL.B. of Batch 2020-2025 and I've experienced some drastic changes in my legal knowledge and have developed multiple skills throughout the course so far.

Placements: UPES has 100% placement record on paper and it seems that most of the students have bagged good placements but some criteria has to be followed including attendance backlogs. The highest package in my course is 33LPA and the average is around 7.5LPA.
Infrastructure: The University has a great infrastructure and the campus is spread across 44 acres which consist of all the necessary facilities such as big classrooms, labs and the library with thousands of books related to all the courses. I am a day scholar and I never get bored at the college.
Faculty: Faculty is highly qualified in UPES and all are from IITs and NITs having PhDs. The syllabus is also stream related but some particular subjects are a bit off the course.
