Bachelor of Technology [B.Tech] (Computer Science and Engineering), batch of 2018
6/10
ACADEMICS & FACULTY
  • The class timings are from 9 am to 5 pm. Students have to work on a project in their final year for which they have to give a demonstration in 6th semester. Lab exams and assignments are conducted every semester.
  • The permanent faculty which includes professors and HODs are excellent tutors while those deployed on contractual basis are somewhat above average. Overall, the quality of teaching is pretty good.
  • The overall experience is good.

CLUBS & ASSOCIATIONS
  • Due to its location in a bit reserved part of the country, the clubs are active on the campus but they don't get opportunities to showcase the talents outside the college campus. Although the college organizes its tech fest called Techvaganza manually but it doesn't garner some appreciable footfall even on conducting visits of famous personalities from the valley as well as from the country.
  • The college students celebrate all the major festivals like Holi, Diwali, Eid, Janmashtami, etc.
