Bachelor of Technology [B.Tech] Reviews

Bachelor of Technology [B.Tech] (Computer Science and Engineering), batch of 2018
  • There are 2 hostels for boys and 2 hostels for girls at JK Institute of Applied Physics and Technology that accommodate students studying in this college. Although there are 2 hostels for boys, 99% of the students get accommodated in one hostel, the other hostel is old, small and so very few get accommodated there. But there is a point to be noted. Since JK Institute is a part of the University of Allahabad, students of other departments of the University of Allahabad also live in that hostel.
  • There are single rooms and double rooms in the hostel. We can choose in which room we can live. But generally 1st-year students are accommodated in double rooms, most of the students change into single rooms when they come to 2nd year.
  • Hostel rooms are comfortable with all basic necessities (a table, a chair, a cot and an Internet link, an almirah, sockets) with no attached bathrooms. Bathrooms are shared. There are bathrooms in each block.
  • Hostel fee is Rs. 11,000 for single rooms and Rs. 9000 for double rooms. But not all students who apply for hostel are accommodated. There is a shortage of rooms in a hostel, but you can stay with your friends on an adjustment basis by getting permission from a warden.
  •  There are many PGs around hostel most of them charging Rs. 2000-3000 per month. There is a mess in a hostel which charges Rs. 2500 every month.
  • The quality of food is fine or just average. The food is mostly North Indian.
  • Infrastructure is one of the weakest links of this college.
  • Quality of classrooms is just fine with spacious classrooms, good quality benches or seats(in some lecture halls), a sufficient number of tube lights and fans, but the condition of projectors is very poor in most of the classrooms.
  • Though the projectors are not much used, but when it is to be used we have to switch classrooms.
  • Library is small, it contains a few books that are recommended by professors of that college. There won't be much variety or more books on same subjects.
  • Computer labs are well equipped but electronics labs do not have the number of equipment that a lab is supposed to have.
  • College and Hostels are powered by high-speed Wi-Fi, it can be used by only those who study in this college. A form is to be submitted to prove that we are students of this college, and then a user_name and password is emailed to us, with which we can access that wifi.

  • Hostels are also provided by the university during admissions . They are very good and fees vary hostel to hostel . But max fees is Rs. 10000 only per year . Hostel campus is very good with a lot of security .
  • There is a regular mess with a good food. Food charges are not included in the fee . It has been given on monthly basis .
