Regarding Projects we have B. Tech & M. Tech Project, which goes on a year long. We have two tests for every subject every semester on called the midsemester and the other called the end semester.Every semester we are given the choice to choose our courses.. For my interest in Finance I have taken additional courses like Machine Learning, R studio, etc.. We also have well equipped labs to encourage us for scientific research.The Quality of Teaching is very good. The methodology is same as any premiere institute in the world. We choose the most advanced books followed in every premiere institute. The research done at the institute is world class.The professors are very friendly and encourage doubts. We can always knock the door of a professor and ask for doubts. They also reply to the emails.Overall, It is a world class Institute for education.
