Student Reviews

Bachelor of Technology [B.Tech], batch of 2021

Assignments are given regularly. Excellent teaching professionals are here.

Bachelor of Science [B.Sc], batch of 2019
  • Every student has to stay in the hostel and its compulsory, class starts at 9 in the morning till 4:50 pm with 8 periods and lunch break from 1 to 2.
  • The teaching at IMA is of poor quality and the teachers are new and barely know how to teach.
  • The head of our department will make the students fail for no reason and nothing can be done.
  • The standards set by the college is quite low.

  • The only program that takes place here is maritime day and the cultural events related to this.
  • Ragging is taking place inside the college.
  • Generally, the life in this college is very bad and I recommend no students to join in this college
