I had not done any internship yet as I am in 1st year but I have heard from my seniors that internship done through our university are pretty good and provide a good practical exposure. Sincerely not so many companies had come to hire but there are some local companies. Don't know about the figure as this activity is not so progressive in our university and university is working on it, so hope for the good. Alumni network is great there are some seminars in which alumni participate and is a kinda good activity which helps us to develop our mindset about the world and give nurturing to our developing ideas.

Fees and Scholarship

INR 48,000 per year excluding bus fee and hostel fee. There is a number of ways by which scholarships are being provided to the students that is pretty much good and appreciable. Loans are not needed by the students as the University provides a good number of scholarships to the students.
