7.6 /10

Placement Experience :

Placements are fair enough for cse/it and ece . If you are taking EE, ME and CI then you have to think about your self study because core companies are very less . And if some core company will come in that case they'll get very low packages. One benefits is that , there are lot of sales and marketing companies are coming in this college and they are offering quite good package around 7-10 lacs .

Campus Life :

Okay so every student wants a huge campus, playground, smart classrooms. Yeah you'll get a good campus here . A small playground,but most of the guys opt playing in the nearby parks . Classrooms are well equipped with projector, AC, duct. Every year a cultural fest and sports fest is organised by College committee, so someone can participate in that .

Loan/ Scholarship Provisions :

Fees are too high in this college. If you are opting engineering then you have to pay something around 650000 college fees for four years. It doesn't include examination fees which is 2k per semester. As far I know no scholarship will be provided by college

Campus Life :

Campus is in a village area where nothing is there. College is in Barasat where nothing is there to view. If you want to stay in college campus there are girls hostel and boys hostel. Charged 5000 per bed in 2017. In a room 4 people stay, But in barasat if you pay 2000 you will get a hole room. That is the mentality of the college, they just want your money nothing else.

Course Curriculum Overview :

Faculty members is c graded teacher. they just help you what they want to help but there is also very helpful teacher also but they go to other college after 1year. every time I like some teacher after few months they are not with brainware anymore. Brainware is a only money centric college they don't give you learning.

Placement Experience :

Placement is the worst thing of this college. In 2020 our batch have only 30-40 people placed in bpo like job but in news paper they advertise that 90% student of there college is placed. How? even from feb there is no placement happen because of corona lockdown. They just lie to they world.

Placement Experience :

The placement department is hopeless for the management department they try to invite some companies but according to my seniors mostly poor roles are provided and students tends to pursue their masters after the completion. Companies like TCS, Byjus, Paytm, Deloitte, wipro visits campus for placement and the average pay is around 3lpa. The alumni network is still growing not much to brag about. I think the placement team should start working hard and take the placement season seriously for the students.

Course Curriculum Overview :

The course curriculum according to me can be improved with some corporate visits and guest lecturer beside that few teachers are really good and have mastered the art of teaching but sometimes it's a mixed bag, I feel like the management building needs a dedicated library and more practical approach while teaching, the course Structure is fair but lack any sort of specialization it'd be great if the university add specialization at the undergraduate level like in finance, marketing and HR to name a few.

College Events :

The campus life is a mixed bag of feelings we don't have acres of land, we've a building and talking about the extracurricular activities they're very few to be very honest and lack opportunities. We've some sports team and some other creative teams but the engagement there is very low. The fests are not that great either like I'm in second year and due to covid-19 I've never experienced any fest so far all I heard from my seniors is that the fests are pretty sad and not to expect much.
