Campus Life :

The social life at the campus is just extraordinary. There is no cases of ragging here as there is a special anti ragging department which takes care that no such case takes place. Many tech fests are organized time to time for enhancing the practical understanding of the students. The campus is a lush green 110 acres with nearly every accommodation possible. There is a special sports department for students from where sports equipment can be issued. And for cherry on the cake there are nearly a dozen of welfare clubs running in the university, by the students for the students. These clubs organise various workshops for the well being of students. The library here is also one of the best I have seen in my entire life, with separate space for computer room and reading room along with thousands of books there for you to read.

Course Curriculum Overview :

Well ,faculty members here are exceptionally well at teaching. Every faculty ranging from HOD to lab assistant are highly qualified and a master at their work. I choose to do Btech from CSE as it was my dream to one day become a successful software engineer and this college is the one which gave me a platform to achieve my dream. As I came from a non coding background first it was difficult for me to adjust here but with constant support from faculty members today I have started to code even on competitive coding platforms. Each semester here is divided into 3 parts, 2 mid terms and one end term. The mid term exams are of 15 marks each and are more like a class test but the end term exam is of 50 marks and is toughest of all.

Placement Experience :

One of the main reasons of taking admission here is the unmatched placements offered here. The placement record is 80% in the last few years. Every student here gets to sit in multiple company interviews to choose the best company for himself. Tech giants like Microsoft, Accenture, Infosys, Capgemini etc are a regular recruited here. Last year's highest placement offer was an extraordinary 32 lpa which is not a joke for any private university. Students here even start getting placed from 3 rd year onwards hence even without completing the degree they got the job.
