Student Reviews

Bachelor of Technology [B.Tech] (Electronics & Communication Engineering), batch of 2018

The college has a rather congested daily routine with classes beginning as early as 8 AM to all through 5:30 PM. Hour-long classes with small breaks in between are quite tiresome and dull.

There are weekly quizzes conducted on a surprise basis however they come off as more of a shock instead. There are 2 internal assessment tests in the middle of the semester and account for half the final result.


The campus has a large student community involved in every activity that is possible to have. From gaming to astronomy to dramatics to fine arts, every kind of student group is available on the campus.

The campus holds two main student festivals, a tech fest and a cultural one. Both of these festivals are completely student-organized and provide great exposure to students in terms of learning and organizing by themselves. 

The college life after 5:30 PM is generally easy going with a vast options of activities to choose from. The student community is huge and it's hard to feel left out even if you have an extremely niche of interests. There's also a club solely for the purpose of watching movies. So there's something for everyone to do.

Master of Technology [M.Tech] (Electrical Engineering), batch of 2018
  • The Assignment quality is very good helps us to solve real time problems class timing varies fro8 am to 7pm. Per day four hours class will be there. Remaining time need to spend in labs

  • There are Two main festivals celebrated. Holi is one of the best happenings in the institute.
  • In general best College one can have to get grateful here
