ACADEMICS & FACULTY:

The Daily routine is good. The basic policy is that if it's working day, at least 3 lectures (of any subjects) should be delivered to each class. Though, sometimes the department fails to adhere to such basic places and then entire day passes out without doing anything productive. Assignments are given on regular basis but since we have 12-13 subjects, it is burdensome sometimes. Projects are usually given in the last 2 months of the semesters and such projects do give us an opportunity to learn more about the subject.

 

The quality of teaching is average. Some professors are clear with the concepts they teach while others are not so good at teaching. So, we have 12-13 subjects, this means that 12-13 teachers are assigned to one class for teaching their respective subjects but barely 3-4 turnout to be professors who are good at teaching, whose classes are worth attending. Still, teachers try their best by taking us to labs, providing books and notes, showing powerpoint presentations and videos during the lectures. 

The overall experience at the college is average. What's disappointing is that even though amity provides state of the art services, there is no regular maintenance of the infrastructure. They have literally overcrowded the campus, teachers teach us subjects in which they have no specialisations (except few), so many assignments labs are rarely used so there's more focused on the theoretical part of the curriculum but the practical part is not given any attention. Good thing is that they force us to prepare research papers which allow us to learn new, they encourage us to conduct primary research and get it published, plus it's also mandatory to intern during summer holidays so it's the student's responsibility to learn by himself/herself to apply what is being taught but they do not teach us how to apply what we learn.

ACADEMICS & FACULTY:
  • Amity Institute of Biotechnology provides us with a wide range of subjects to be studied.
  • The laboratories, as well as the classrooms, are well maintained. Unlike govt colleges, teachers here cover all the topics and are fully dedicated to their work. They provide us with study materials, assignments etc that prove out to be helpful.
  • The internal assessments are held a month before the externals , the duration is 1 hour.
  • Classes are regularly held till evening and attendance count a lot. we are ought to maintain 75% attendance to appear in the exams.
  • And yeah, outside the classrooms we are free to clear our doubts with seniors or teachers. The entire Amity family is very friendly and kind , helpful in every way.
  • Lastly, I would like to mention that I'm pursuing a dual degree i.e. Btech+ MTech from here, it is a 5-year duration course and unlike the single degrees, I'd be completing my masters in 5 years.
  • And I must tell you guys , that if you wanna pursue BTech ( I don't know about BSc) in biotechnology, it's better you go for the dual degree i.e. the integrated program.
  • It not only saves a year but is valuable as well. And Amity should be your only choice.

ACADEMICS & FACULTY:
  • Amity University follows a Semester System which is in conformity with the global practices and standards.
  • The Course curriculum of one year is taught in two semesters. Semester Grade Point Average (SGPA) & Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) are calculated based on the students' performance in Semester(s).
  • Attendance is a topic of hue and cry as 75% is a must to appear in exams. Syllabus and evaluation system is clearly posted on amazon(portal like a bulletin board to be accessed by faculties and students for attendance, important dates etc). There are added subjects of Behavioral Science and foreign language for your entire time span at amity.
  • Amity is not academia based institution. Focus is on sports, events, fests, international exposure and overall development. Thus, no one actually comes to amity to ‘study’.
  • The quality of faculty is really important in any institution. 50% of the faculties at ASET are really talented and dedicated to their duty of providing us with the best application based gyaan.
  • While others are also amongst our favourites as they give you attendance and not make you suffer through 50mins of a lecture on the daily basis.
  • I love the approach of faculties from business school (ABS), they are the most chilled out ones and take you to the real world rather than just making you cram up from their given notes.
  • Overall, I would say, you will meet each and every hue and all of them teach you some things or the other.

FEES AND SCHOLARSHIP:
  • Much like an private university, Amity also charges a fair amount for all its courses. With a huge campus and every facility one can think of, students are asked to pay around Rs 1.2 Lakh per semester which goes upto Rs 1.4 Lakh in the final semester.
  • However, the scholarships available are very helpful to students who score well. From 50% scholarship for students scoring 85-90% in their boards  to a complete 100% scholarship for scoreres above 90%, Amity is very rewarding in terms of academic success. Not only that, sporting achivements are equally rewarded with similar scholarships once the course has begun. 
  • In my batch, around 60% students were on scholarships and that is a big number for any college.
  • Loans are not really needed since the university is very helpful to strong students with financial issues.

FEES AND SCHOLARSHIP:
  • The course fee is Rs 90,000 per year which is extremely high and might be unaffordable to majority of students who are seeking psychology. It's better to take admission at delhi university because paying so much for a liberal arts degree is not practical.
  • Scholarships are available to students who have score 85%-100% in their boards. They can get their scholarships renewed each year if they continue to score excellent.
  • There's 50%scholarship available for students who are hardworking and belong from economically weaker sections. Usually, from a class of 60 students, 5-7 do manage to get a scholarship and they are awarded at an  annual function chaired especially by the founder president. 
  • One can opt for student loans and some do because of expensive tution fee, amity has connections with some banks and that's make it a bit easier to get loans.

PLACEMENTS & ALUMNI NETWORK:
  • Internships are a must for all engineering students and the university encourages the students to get one from the first year summer holidays. While there are still In-House projects to be done, you must look for internships and report back to your teachers. In the final year, the university helps out in getting the best internships by recommending companies like HCL to let them hire you.
  • Wipro, IBM, Capgemini and HCL are the primary recruiters for placements which are compulsory for all students.
  • The average salaries range from Rs 3.5 LPA to as high as Rs 12.5 LPA. There are two phases of placement sessions, one in each semester of the final year. Around 70% of the batch gets placed in the first phase and the remaining in the second. The university makes sure every student is placed at the end of the year.
  • The Alumnus is really helpful if you can get in touch with them on time. Make sure to check out the website of the university and reach out to all former passouts for any of your questions.

PLACEMENTS & ALUMNI NETWORK:
  • Internships are the vital part of the entire curriculum. The department has made it mandatory to intern during summer holidays, so in a 3-year programme, a student interns at least twice at different organisations. However, our department encourages students to intern at weekends as well or after college. One can easily get the recommendation letter required for internships. 
  • Placements are great, Amity invites members and representatives of many companies to have a look at their campus and the quality training they provide to their students. Engineering, law and other departments do manage to get attention from various companies of India and abroad and they do come to college for conducting their personalised evaluation. However, when it's about the placements of  the department of psychology, since it's such a small department, only toppers are allowed to sit for placements. 
  • Amity even has an online portal to keep in touch with former students but it's not so effective.

INFRASTRUCTURE & TRANSPORTATION:
  • There are entire blocks dedicated to hostels. There are 5-7 blocks of hostels which have AC and NonAC rooms. However, the size of Non-AC rooms is too small for 3 students and despite bad-average level of conditions which prevail at hostels, hostel fees is extremely high. For AC room, it's cost is Rs 1,40,000 per year for one person and for Non-AC room is Rs 70,000 per year for one person. 
  • PGs located near to the college are great and they provide basic facilities with spacious rooms. However, these days luxury PGs too have come up which provide rooms with great interior design, wifi, gym and other facilities. 
  • In college, there are many places which serve food, we have our own dominoes and CCD. The cafeteria where majority of students prefer to eat daily vegetarian food is good, they take great care of hygiene and food tastes fine. It usually costs Rs 50-60 per meal but if you go to any restaurants or pizza centre, over there it's expensive. 
  • Quality is classrooms is good. All classes are centrally air conditioned with comfortable seats. Some classes are amphitheatre-styled with installed projectors.                                                                                                                                        Library is beautiful but sometimes, it's difficult to find a book which one needs but they do keep on adding more books in shelves dedicated to each department. They try to keep the latest version of magazines and other journals available to students, there's also access to amity's digital library which is connected to prestigious academic institutions, so their journals and publications are easily available. Wi-Fi works great and provides speedy access to internet.

Plus, we have a huge ground dedicated to people who are interested in sports. There are tennis courts, swimming pool and sports equipments accessible to all students.

  • The campus is like a small fortress protected with Z-level security.

  • All the buildings are centrally air-conditioned and all the facilities that may ever be needed in a college are there.
  • There is a separate library for each department and each library has an ample number of books.
  • There’s also something called as an e-library and it can be accessed through the college intranet.
  • There’s Wi-Fi connectivity all over the campus, but when everyone is simultaneously online, the net speed is terribly reduced due to bandwidth sharing.

CLUBS & ASSOCIATIONS:
  • There are many student societies and clubs on campus which recruit very heavily all throughout the year. From Inertia, the famous dance society to Alfaas, the dramatic society, Amity University has a growing bunch of associations where students can participate. Technical societies like eDC, ACE club and EMC are the place to be for all future IT gurus and budding entrepreneurs.
  • The main two festivals on campus are the Amity Youty Fest, the 3 day gala event with all sorts of competetions and cultural events ending with a live concert, held mainy in February and the Sangathan event, which is a sports meeting from August-October. While there are a lot of other festivals in the university, these two are the biggest and most heavily participated. Students are able to obtain medals and certificates in both events and these go a long way in aiding their profiles in terms of extra curricular activites.
  • College life in general is pretty chill for students. There is general hectic nature to the engineering batches, sure, but it mellows down as you get into your third and fourth years. the teachers are respectful and chill as well and let the students be.

CLUBS & ASSOCIATIONS:
  • Each department has their own clubs and committees where students can participate, do something productive and socialise with the other students. However, University-level clubs too exist in which students from different departments head and become members of the club. 
  • Plus, as reported by my friends who live in the hostels, campus life is good. Amity celebrated all religious festivals within the campus, it also celebrates annual fest known as "amity youth fest" in which celebrities are invited, camps and stalls are set up and interesting workshops take place in all departments. Celebrities are invited in every few months. Plus, an intra-university sports competition is too held annually which allows sports loving people to participate and win medals/trophies. 
  • The college life, in general, is better and allows students to have some great time with their friends but strict attendance policy, burdensome responsibilities never fail to disappoint.
