Class timings are 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM. Students are free to do any kind of projects they are interested in but on the condition that project is a valid one. 2 Sessionals before semester exams and 4 to 5 assignments are given in every subject before the end of the semester.
Guest Faculty being a little inexperienced are not able to teach well but that's fine to pass a subject. Still, students on their own hand work really hard and 95% students pass all subjects in every batch. Some of the teachers are permanent and they create exciting entertaining sessions to make things interesting and enhancing the grasping ability of the students.
Till now, I learned so many things from the teachers as well as from self-training. I think that you can learn anything you want to learn if you are dedicated to it. Respect that subject and someday it is going to respect you.
Student societies such as ETSA( Engineering Technology Student Association) handles all the external and internal activities of the college to a high extent.
The main festivals are College Fest( Utkarsh ), Annual Dinner for 4th-year students and Freshers and Farewells at student's hands are taken care of. College Fest has all the technical and cultural activities for joy and exploration.
Overall Shimla is a location with exciting and wonderful spots and our college is also one of the wonders of Shimla. So, since I am from Delhi so it is like heaven for me to have my studies planned in such a location. I thank my parents for choosing this location for my studies.
