DEGREE @ DATTA MEGHE
Overall good college for degree specially for its good placement ration. Only slight bit of improvisation scope with regards to labs, library, some staff, post graduate studies support needs to be improvised a lot. Placements can still yield better opportunities if streamlined for students branch/specialization wise.
No specific entrance, Admitted on PCM Group ( Physics, Chemistry, Maths ) Score of H.S.C. Exam. Couldn't get into first two rounds but made it in third round.
FEE STRUCTURE AND FACILITIES
Slightly expensive for lower middle/middle class but still marginally manageable. But fees paid are not worth the facilities provided. Labs & its instruments can be better.
Placements are good. However All streams are exposed to all category of companies For e.g. Mechanical & Civil Engineers are getting placed to I.T. industry. Placement is not channelled and narrowed to stream specific.
No hostel facilities were available at our time. Am not sure about now but I guess its still the same outside students need to manage their accommodation on their own.
Alumni meet had happened only once or twice after passing out within 8 years there on. 1 I attended but the response was dull so another I dint attend.
Faculty associated specifically with Mechanical Engineering was overall good but for Production. Design & Thermal Engineering Faculty was good enough.
As mentioned in earlier sections campus life was kind of ok neither so great nor so bad. Cultural & Technical fests were organized only once in a year. Labs can really be better so can the library be.
Exams were Semester pattern being bound to Mumbai University and hence in accordance with its structure. Students used to get preparation leave before exams commencement so it was lesser hectic.
COURSE CURRICULUM OVERVIEW
Course curriculum is affiliated to Mumbai University so defined by Mumbai University. It has 3 main sub branches Design, Production, Thermal Engineering & courses for three are evenly divided over 8 semesters with all mandatory subjects but just for 2 electives in final semester.
No Internship as such. Thereby no companies come for interviewing students for within the term/semester internship. However final two semesters students have freedom of choosing a project within any of the companies but college assists the least in this.
Technical fests occur once every year once. So also cultural fests occur once every year. However it isn't all that very enthusiastic happening thing.
LOAN/ SCHOLARSHIP PROVISIONS
Hardly any scholarships or funding agencies were entertained. Mostly it used to be self sponsored education for almost every student.
