Bachelor of Technology [B.Tech] (Mechanical Engineering), batch of 2021

The daily routine is like classes typically start at 9:10 am and finishes at around 5:30 pm. There are 4 exams in a semester and usually, the 3rd one is assignment type. Quality of teaching is good because of most of the teachers are from the Ph.D. background. 


NSS is one main organization under NSS, there are many more initiatives like gyanmalini etc. Each department have their own club like own mechanical engineering have SAE club, computer science engineering have IEEE club and there is also dance club, photography club etc. The main festival is "Techxetra" held in October then there is "Arnaswat" humanities and social sciences and many others. Life, in general, is very good.

Master of Science [M.Sc] (Mathematics), batch of 2012
  • Classes generally start from 9 A.M and end by 4.30 P.M. Each lecture is of 2 hours and a break of 1 hour in between.
  • The teachers are very qualified and have a great grasp of knowledge of the subject. We have blackboard based lectures. But do not expect any extra help out of the classes. Very few teachers do that. 
  • I can say my experience in college was mediocre. Though I enjoyed my classes, but I felt most of the teachers were partial towards few students.

  • Most of the clubs in the University are dormant.
  • Main festival is Techxetra (Tech festival). We also haVE sports week and Cultural week.
  • College life is good. You can showcase you talent in various festivals. Being a closed campus, the college helps to maintain a friendly atmosphere. Every festival is enjoyed by the students.
