Student Reviews

Bachelor of Engineering [BE] (Electrical and Electronics Engineering), batch of 2021

As the college motto says where quality and ethics matter. It's so true here. Most of the staffs have completed their doctrates and have a different methodology of teaching. The class schedules are not hectic. There's some time for other work too. Overall experience is great.


EEE Association is a technical society which organizes technical and non-technical events for students apart from it we have Institution of Engineers and IEEE Society.

Master of Engineering [ME] (Mechanical Engineering), batch of 2019

Method of teaching is very well. Good infrastructure in the college.


There are many students clubs. The sports facility is good.

Bachelor of Architecture [B.Arch.], batch of 2017

Class timings will be fine but we may have night studies. Method of teaching is very poor. Experience is good as compared to any other engineering courses.


Nothing like that Symposium is the only fest. College is not so strict regarded to architecture.
