Not much of international exposure, but students are more towards doing MS from foreign universities. And even Internships are provided in USC and FAU but very limited seats and cost is too high

Fees and Scholarship

Fees at our time was very less. Now the fees is INR 204,000 per annum. Think of your expenses before entering.

Placements & Internships

Internships/vocational training are purely based on the contacts of the individual. If you don't have contacts to get into a company, then the university will offer a list of companies to work with and there is no stipend. Computer and IT are the luckiest streams with highest placement ratio and even the highest package. One of the prime reasons behind this is that more IT, computer companies visit the campus compared to other branches.

Fees and Scholarship

Course fees keep on increasing every year. When I joined, it was around INR120000 per annum and now it has reached INR 140000. Scholarships are available for CM scholarship. If the loan is required, then its quite easily availed.
