Placement Experience :

Placement numbers aren't very high. Not many organisations or companies visit the campus, and the students who get jobs usually do that by searching themselves. There is a little placemen, of course, but it isn't too significant. Of course, despite the disappointing statistics, the college is constantly improving in this regard.Internships are provided, however, with many students getting internships in reputed firms

Faculty :

The faculty are well-qualified to teach in their respective fields. Some of the professors are really helpful and guide us well, but that isn't the case for the entire faculty. Many are not accessible and don't care much, but there are some very good teachers who make the difference between just passing an exam and actually understanding the topics.

Alumni/Alumna :

The seniors and alumni are helpful. The University has some alumni who are very successful in their respective fields, and they provide some inspiration as well as help in case it's required. Seniors are always there if we need them, and they are helpful, especially in terms of the study materials and exams and what to do wuth free time!
