Ques. How is LNCT Bhopal for EEE?

● Top Answer By Aaditya Hari Nair on 28 Sept 21

Ans. If you are considering doing an EEE from anywhere in Bhopal, please reconsider. Be it LNCT or OIST or RGPV, none of them provide you with good opportunities that you may push your career forward. The syllabus of EEE is very vast and hard to grasp. It is considered one of the toughest branches. One of my friends opted for it and she thinks that it was a big mistake. Getting good grades with just an average amount of studies sounds like a dream because if you are not willing to work hard, this branch is not for you.  Most of the students like my friend accepted a career outside of their branch. Though it is somewhat disheartening for EEE students to get jobs in their core fields, even after investing 4 years in them. Most of them ended up in corporate houses or IT firms, doing technical jobs.Read more

Ques. What is your review about NIT Trichy EEE branch?

● Top Answer By Aaditya Hari Nair on 27 Sept 21

Ans. One of my friends completed her EEE from NIT Trichy. Here is her insight regarding the department and the college.  College life: It is more or less similar, regardless of the department. In EEE they used to have classes or labs all day long. The schedule for other branches is not that hectic. In clubs and festival events, they obtain an edge over you since their free time is more. But if you are interested in something you can make time for it.  Professors: EEE has, arguably, more professors than any other department. Most of the faculty are friendly and cooperative. However, don't rely too much on them for lessons. You will have to cover most of your academics by self-study. Peers: The peer group for EEE at NIT Trichy is great. From your classmates, you'll learn things that you won’t from your teachers.  Placement: NIT Trichy boasts of a great placement record and EEE is one of the departments with nearly 100% placements. According to the recent placement highlights, the average CTC offered was 6 LPA. Many students also go for MS, MBA, and M.Tech, both in the nation and outside.  If you have a good CGPA throughout all the semesters, you don't have to worry because hundreds of firms visit the school each year. Not only that, but in your pre-final year, certain firms may give you internships which will lead you to a pre-selection offer. Living on the Campus is a great experience. You will feel like you are in a home away from home. When you graduate, it will certainly make you sad. So, try to make the most out of your stay at the institute. Read more

Ques. What is the placement scenario of EEE in DSCE?

● Top Answer By Akanksha Gupta on 20 Sept 21

Ans. One of my friends studied at Dayananda Sagar College of Engineering. According to him, you will be put in the mass recruitment of any MNCs if your communication skills are strong.  You'll receive more reputed IT firms if your communication skills are extremely good and you know coding very well.  You can be put in one of the very few core EEE industries that visit the campus if you are clear about electrical engineering concepts.  Herewith I am highlighting the placement scenarios in DSCE : Parametres EEE at DSCE Tuition Fees 12 lakh Placement Percentage 70-80% Highest Package 12 LPA Average Package 4.5-5 LPA Many reputed companies participate in their placement program. They include TCS, Tata Steel, Texas Instruments, L&T, Siemens, Jindal Steel and Power Limited, General Electrics, Wipro and many others. Therefore EEE from DSCE can prove to be good for your career.Read more

Ques. Which is better- IEM in Ms. Ramaiah or EEE in Dayanand Sagar College of Engineering?

● Top Answer By Aaditya Hari Nair on 17 Sept 21

Ans. After doing some research online, I would suggest not to go for IEM at Ramaiah, until and unless you are extremely interested in studying that particular subject. Since it will not pay you anything and you will eventually wind up in the same category of mass placement at one of the service-based companies.  Double-check the topics you will be studying. EEE is usually less exposed than IEM, yet EEE is regarded as the most complex branch to be studied.  The majority of EEE / ECE / other branches receive job offers from Infosys, HCL, Accenture, or Tech Mahindra. Parameters IEM at Ms. Ramaiah EEE at Dayanand Sagar College of Engineering Tuition Fees INR 3.47 lakh  INR 10 lakh Placement Percentage 95% 70% Highest Package 13 LPA 15 LPA Average Package 7.6 LPA INR 8 LPA So, what is the point of learning core Electronics if all you have to do at the conclusion of your engineering degree is code? If you want to build a career, think seriously about the branch you select. Regardless of the institution you attend, I believe EEE is far superior to IEM. Pursue EEE only if you are truly passionate about the subject.Read more
