The college infrastructure is awesome and very big. The are fest in college and It’s great and some special are traditional day and you will love to go over there and you will enjoy. There are books and library is very big you can get any book. There is only one smart TV for teaching and benches to sit and talk to your friend. There are sports activity and other things to do in the college it’s a very huge ground you can play anything. There are clubs are more than 15 clubs you can select for more than one club also.enjoy over your club .

Internships Opportunities :

Yes they provide internship for second year and for some course there are compulsory for you to do internship because it’s there in credit.For some course you are not supposed or it’s not compulsory for you to do internship. Then it can be of one month or two month or more depend on the company and they will provide projects to you or not that depend on them. If you think you will get paid for it , that decision will be upto them so get ready for your college life.

Course Curriculum Overview :

I have took bba ca and I'm interested in this course because as we know about technology used in future. AI and other things language of programming all to understand and used for further things. The ratio of the student is 50:50 so it’s good amount of students and faculty are also very well graduate and very friendly with students. In a year you are supposed to give 6 exam 3 internal and 3 external exam.

Course Curriculum Overview :

I chose bba(computers) because I always wanted to become a database administrator. the teaching faculty for BBA-CA course is alright-ish. there's not much fuss about getting the admission unlike other under- graduate degrees. above 60% in 12th grade can land you a seat in this college. the ratio is a bit unsettling it's 1:80 . teachers often assign a tonne of homework monthly and students don't get a lot of time to comprehend to what is being taught. people good at math and computers must opt for this course but if ones not good at it I'd recommend choosing another course, probably BBA. exams are organised once in a 6 month duration and are pretty lengthy. passing the exams are not a biggie here but the examination and correction section could've been better. I don't usually get the marks I expected.

Loan/ Scholarship Provisions :

fees is pretty cheap if compared to other colleges in the city. if the student is from a financially unstable background they can even get fees 100% waived .. paying extra fees for library and sanctuary seems pretty useless to me. campus selection is good but not satisfactory. students are often offered jobs in other cities while pune being an IT hub sounds p weird. I've heard students talking about companies like tata, accenture hiring them in the third year. College also introduces different types of internships(mainly unpaid) to the students in the first year.

Campus Life :

college holds very rare college fests and sometimes music fests. I've never been a fan of the fests in my college. military training camps are held and the sports section mainly emphasizes on yoga and other athletics. library has college and course related books but not in a big quantity it does take some time to get the book issued . classrooms have a pc to themselves along with a projector. no college life.

Remarks :

It's safe, all girls college and was near to my house so easy travel. A well reputated college. Also I had done my high school from the same college so tended to continue the same. Being a girl, my parents wanted me to be safe and learn how to deal with things, and St. Mira's was just as best as it could be. It also helped me know I am good leader. As I was familiar with the environment I continued being there. Their main motive is that a student is not left out and had their own exam pattern as its an autonomous college.

Placement Experience :

We get good number of companies coming in and hiring students. The cell of CWE that's the Central of Women Entrepreneurship, formed by the students runned hy the students. Supported by the faculities, we used to have alot of guest lectures and seminars, events and competitions.

College Events :

There alot of activities that take place. Every month we had events so alot to learn. It takes everything from Korean events till Tedx whatever you can cover everything. Highly participative. Make sure there's no same student working and everyone is getting a chance

Admission :

The institute was in existence for 27 years and being part of the University, it gave comfort in the quality of education, without any commercial interest associated. The Dean/ HOD was an IIMA alumnus, Dr. SL Joshi. My first interaction with him during the process of admission won me over. A fine gentleman, and he showed pragmatism in the solution to a certain problem that I had at hand. The selection included an entrance, Maharashtra CET ( Combined Entrance Test) followed by a group discussion and personal interview. We were evaluated on each of the activities, and based on the total score, there was counseling where we opt for the college, based on our score. Their test happened around mid-May, followed by the Group Discussion and personal interview around mid-June. The counseling happened in the first week of July.

Course Curriculum Overview :

The curriculum had 4 semesters, 2 in each of 1st and 2nd years. The curriculum had some parts very relevant to a management program, while specialization subjects lacked the contemporary curriculum. However, the visiting faculty ensured we got exposure to some of the contemporary subjects, some even ahead of our time. Which eventually helped in my career! I felt the program was well rounded without the glitz and glamor of private institutes. Some polish/ finesse and it could have been as good as the best!

Campus Life :

There was plenty of diversity, with people coming from various parts of the country, and indeed from other countries too. There were people from Nepal, Bangladesh, Kenya, Sri Lanka, Uganda apart from the North East states. I myself came all the way from Odisha. There were students across genders, from rural and urban cities. There used to be few formal games activities, but students engaged in games, there was the camaraderie among students outside classes.
