Remarks :

The location and place of the university was the most important factor. Also heard good reviews of this university, so went for it. I really like the faculty of my department. They are very helpful. There are different programs that the department carries out. I opted for this course because I always had an interest towards psychology and I took master's because I wanted to delve more into the field and broaden my knowledge base from such experienced faculties.

College Events :

The events and activities are big. They celebrate Onam festival and Ganpati festival. It is huge and big. The college also celebrates events like marathons with energy. Students from our department as well as other departments do show a lot of participation in extra curricular activities. They are mostly energetic and like to engage in such activities. Any festival that is celebrated in the college is done with full energy.

Placement Experience :

I am still in my second year of college and currently in 3rd semester. Placement happens in 4th semester so I really don't know about the companies that will come and how many students will be placed. Right now we all are specialising in our respective fields i.e clinical psychology, counseling psychology and industrial psychology. I don't know much about the placement process.

Course Curriculum Overview :

I chose this university for Bangalore weather and the university's green environment. I found this university in shiksha and Google which was ranked one of the best universities in Bangalore. The students were mostly from Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, Kerala and Tamil Nadu. It's really a friendly environment from faculties to the office staffs. curriculum is not pressuring and the exams actually encourage you towards concept learning.

Loan/ Scholarship Provisions :

Fee Structure is comparatively better than other universities. Since it's a growing University, it's acceptable. But placements are literally bad. Very bad. Specifically for Biotechnology students. No companies come for placements. I wouldn't suggest people to study Biotechnology over there. But it's very good for engineering. Placements are very good for engineering students.

Campus Life :

So many fests happen but only related to engineering. Not much for Biotechnology. Culturals are not enjoyable. They just happen to show that it happens. Just for publicity. The central library has lots of collection of books for students to study. It's the only amenity for Biotechnology.
