The college hostel is not up to the mark as the lodging and food provided is not nice. Generally, students prefer PG or flat instead of living in a hostel. The rent varies around from 1000-5000. The food provided in the canteen is good compared to the locality. Mostly it is fast food and pinches the pocket quite less. The quality of the classroom and the labs are not up to the mark. They give a feeling of the early 2000s or late 1990s. The library is of the state of the art which is 24 hours open and have a got a huge collection of books. There is no dining hall. The college has modern fire fighting equipment and the wifi is provided by jio. All the computer have Linux on them and also have a strong LAN connection.

8 /10

College life is similar to school. There are lots of rules and there is an aura of decorum and discipline. We have morning prayer, to begin with, and bunking college is quite tough after making into the college premise. The atmosphere in the classroom is fun. There are two fests cultural and technical organized by the college and are quite a hit in this region. There is only a club known as the e-cell or the entrepreneurial cell which is very active and organizes a lot of events and have a lab sponsored by the government of India.

Bachelor of Technology [B.Tech] (Electronics & Communication Engineering), batch of 2020 2/10
  • Class timings : 9AM-4PM,(You are not allowed to enter after 9 even if it was just 10 min late).
  • Quality of teaching is really poor. Lots of rules and regulations are attached with this college, so one should check those before joining this college.
