There is a very good placement in ECE branch over here. Every IT sector companies give chance to ECE students and offer a high package. The faculty is overall good but it is not world class. You will find some of the subjects and professors interesting and some boring. But no doubt each professor have very high achievements. There are two exams conducted in every semester.

Course Curriculum Overview :

I choose this course because I'm from a family of Judges and lawyers so i had interest in the same. There is enough faculty for every subject and the number of students is also not too many so the teacher can give attention to each and everyone of them. Most of the teacher have a LLB and LLM degree and some of then have done PHD in law as well. There are 6 semesters they are held around December for odd semester and around May for even semester. The questions in the exam are neither easy nor very difficult. If you take classes daily you will develop enough skills to clear the exams easily as you lean it gets easier and easier to clear every exam. Although sometimes the questions are tricky and based on cases so you will have to study each subject in detail so that you don't miss our any provision in a statute and landmark cases.

Loan/ Scholarship Provisions :

The fee for One year for LLB is 80,000 rupees and you have to pay around 1500 rupees for exam form every semester. There is no fee hike unless a new infrastructure is being provided to the students like installation of ac in every room. During my time it was asked to us if we need ac then we will have to pay Rs 1000 around but since it was out last year we refused other than that every semester you have to pay rupees 500 for freshers party and for farewell party but not in the final semester. There are scholarship available for people who have scored good marks in their graduation. If your financial situation is not very good then you can pay the fee in installments. There are no on campus jobs

Campus Life :

There are many fest that are held usually around Holi festival and many random fest every month or two. Most of the books on law are available in the library on each subject and enough to provide for each and every student other than that their are past judgements also available, previous your question papers as well. The class has a white board a projector and comfortable seats although there are no ac but the classes are pretty airy and cool. There are many sports activities like cricket, football, badminton and volleyball and many competition are also held. There are sports club, debate club, right to information club and many other.

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.
