This is the best part of the college. Almost 90 % of the batch gets placed. Around 35-40% students get placed on 3rd year 2nd sem itself. The average package would be around 4 lacs. Alumini network is one of the biggest asset of Pict

HOSTELS & FOOD
8/10
On campus accommodation is limited. However, there are a lot of reasonable and good quality options available for accommodation in the neighboring areas which are all walking distance from the college. Since the entire area has a dominant student demographic, all the facilities required by students are available nearby at reasonable prices. There are a huge number of options for food around the campus. However, as expected the college food is best avoided.

7/10
The college is located at a very convenient location in the city thus commuting to the campus is very easy.The classes are fitted with projectors to help teachers to explain a topic in detail, the campus is fully WiFi and the labs are equipped with all the latest machines.The library has a very good collection of books.

As the college specializes in computer science, it attracts attention of all major IT companies in india. 95% of the batch gets placed by the end of final year. The average salary offered is about Rs 4 lacs per annum.

FEES AND SCHOLARSHIP
8/10
The Institution accept the general reservation criteria applied to the state of Maharashtra. This is beneficial for some of the students. Also, institution gives an average sum as part of annual awards and scholarship; But unfortunately, this applies to only the student who are toppers for particular subjects or for whole academic year. I had never heard of any other financial aid and/or scholarships provided by the college. Needful students do avail scholarships and freeships schemes.

FOREIGN EXCHANGE & INTERNATIONAL EXPOSURE
3/10
The strong alumni network of PICT gives an opportunity to maximum students for internships abroad. There is no such exchange programs from the college. Some students get good international experience by visiting research conferences and seminars.

ACADEMICS & FACULTY
7/10
The college is affiliated to University of Pune. The academic schedule is fairly regular. Recently it has become stricter. There is a University of Pune specified combination for classes. E&TC; department is very strict wrt attendance, assignments etc compared to CS and IT. Some of the faculty is really good while some others are average.

INFRASTRUCTURE & TRANSPORTATION
3/10
This is a slight downside for the institution. Considering the reputation the college has, its infra-structure is not appealing. Class-rooms are average and same applies to Computer Labs. Dinning halls and Auditoriums are not spacious. Commuting facilities are good because of the location. College library is better in terms of space, books and ambiance.

PLACEMENTS & ALUMNI NETWORK
8/10
The Institution is very helpful throughout the placement season and sure is ranked above average in terms of college placement offers and internship opportunities, compared to Non-IIT colleges in Maharashtra. If you are willing to do some good coursework and take up your curriculum seriously, you have a high chance of getting to work in Amdocs Innovation Lab, College Level projects e.g. Building college alumni site. These are pre-Final Year opportunities which are not available at many institutions. Also some big players come for placements and offers competent salaries and positions. Some of the Project Internship offers also turn into permanent jobs. College has TNP cell which is helpful.

FEES AND SCHOLARSHIP

The Institution accept the general reservation criteria applied to the state of Maharashtra. This is beneficial for some of the students. Also, institution gives an average sum as part of annual awards and scholarship; But unfortunately, this applies to only the student who are toppers for particular subjects or for whole academic year. I had never heard of any other financial aid and/or scholarships provided by the college. This means the institution does not have any or does not take sufficient efforts to spread the word.

FOREIGN EXCHANGE & INTERNATIONAL EXPOSURE
2/10
This general point is not, unfortunately, considered as a point of comparison for non-IIT colleges in Maharashtra. As there were few institutions which offer such exposure until I graduated (2011). But this college has a positive side of strong alumni network. Many students go for M.S, MBA and Jobs outside in their immediate post-college career. If the college can decide and take initiative, it can definitely come up with plans for, not Exchange programs probably, but for short-term International opportunities. Also, for now, college encourages students to present papers in International conferences and may provide partial aid for the presentation and travel.
