Ques. Which college is better for engineering (Himachal pradesh technical university) HPTU or Chandigarh University (CU)?

● Top Answer By Satyam Purwar on 25 Oct 21

Ans. HPTU has its own popularity from some of the colleges under its name. All the colleges are not up to the mark when certain things like Faculty, placement, infrastructure, or alumni are considered. On the other hand, Chandigarh University (CU) holds a great reputation. It has great placement records in North India. So it is recommended that among the two opt for CU as it will prove to be beneficial to your career.Read more

Ques. Which is better Chandigarh University or DAV College Chandigarh?

● Top Answer By Aaditya Hari Nair on 22 Oct 21

Ans. It is dependent on the course you wish to enroll in. Some courses are quite popular at Chandigarh University, whereas others are popular at DAV College. If you are looking for better infrastructure and placements, Chandigarh University should be preferred over DAV. It has been awarded an A+ grade by NAAC and is the only state-private university to be accredited by NAAC. The curriculum followed at CU is industry-oriented and based on market standards. The level of exposure you will receive here is exceptional with numerous opportunities. Apart from this, Chandigarh University has tie-ups with international institutions. The university has recorded excellent placement records with participating companies like Microsoft, Google, Amazon, IBM, Walt Disney, Oracle, and many more.Read more

Ques. Should I take an M.Sc in chemistry admission from HPU or Chandigarh University?

● Top Answer By Aaditya Hari Nair on 11 Oct 21

Ans. Without any doubt, you should get admission to Chandigarh University for MSc in Chemistry. Here are a few reasons why.  Chandigarh University is the youngest university to get NAAC A+. The Honors Degree in Chemistry at UIS - ranked among the Top and Best BSc and MSc (Hons.) Chemistry colleges in Punjab. It gives you an advantage of the professional standards, along with the ability to tackle ethical challenges occurring in the field of modern science, and technology. Chandigarh University offers an Internship from Mid May to July (2 months) after the 2nd sem. As students start sitting in placement drives from the 3rd semester onwards, it's the best time to get such exposure so that they are well prepared to face the interviews. You can opt for internships of your related interest as CU has collaborations with many industrial or academic partners. Students get successfully placed for internships in forensic and non-forensic fields. The chemistry department also has faculty with vast Industry experience which helps students in selecting the best for them as per their future aspirations. Most faculties are from IITs, NITs, and GATE qualified with Ph.D. degrees and have at least 3-4 published research papers. Most of them also have postdoctoral degrees from renowned foreign universities. Panacea Biotech, SENTISS Pharma, Swiss Garnier LIFE SCIENCES, IIT Indore, CSIR Palampur, IISER Mohali, Indian Council of Agriculture Research (ICAR) Center, CSIR, IIIM Jammu are some of the institutions offering internships. With all these good reasons I suggest you join Chandigarh University.Read more

● Top Answer By Aaditya Hari Nair on 11 Oct 21

Ans. Having a friend studying at Chandigarh university I can tell you some reasons for joining Chandigarh University. Infrastructure: The infrastructure at CU is the best. There are classrooms and Labs/Library, university management systems (online attendance, online marks, display system, etc) with 24 hour WiFi.

There are several industrial visits, workshops, competitions, etc. throughout the year to boost your technical skills.

Ques. What are some helpful tips for students starting their first year at Chandigarh University?

● Top Answer By Aaditya Hari Nair on 04 Oct 21

Ans. According to one of my friends who studied at Chandigarh University, the pressure of studies will be lower until your first year. As the number of semesters increases, the pressure of studies and placements will increase.  Some important tips for your first year at CU are: Your first priority should be your studies. Many seniors may tell you that the CGPA you acquire is not important and that you should pursue your passion instead. But it is not true.  In the end, your academic score and skills will matter the most. Join some university clubs while you're studying, as there are plenty at Chandigarh University.  This will boost your self-esteem and improve your abilities. Never meddle with your professors as they could have bad results. If you don't pay your fees on time, you'll never know how much you'll have to pay in fines.  The University charges hefty amounts as a fine for late fee payments.  If you wish to borrow a book from the library for six months, you must have at least an 8.0 CGPA; otherwise, you can only borrow books for five days. One thing you should always remember is to take good care of your ID Card. As if you lose it, you'll have to pay a fee of INR 1000 rupees. Overall try to enjoy these first years as gradually it will get tougher.Read more
