Course Curriculum Overview :

The college scenario is not very much different from the other colleges ,if you get in this college then you are going to like some of the professor's teaching and others not. The faculty student ratio is quite nice but still it is a 3 tier college so, don't depend too much on the college. The conduction of exams are taken on the exact date as it is going to be mentioned in your academic calendar. Some students face difficulty to pass the exams but if you're a good student then you don't have to bother about it.

Campus Life :

The annual fest of RCOEM is Pratishruti and no doubt it is good, but the dandiya nights organized by raisoni groups is also a nice event where they call film industry's well known faces as a chief guest. Throughout the year you will see the events organized on college level and branch level within the RCOEM campus. Campus is too small, you can finish campus tour within 15 minutes.

Placement Experience :

The placement scenario is quite good (especially CSE and IT, tough for other branches). The companies starts to visit college for the hiring process from 7th sem. Max package offered is 20 lacs to a CSE student, for rest placement details please refer the NIRF pdf.
