  • 8/10Ratings

    REMARKS

    The college experience is really good. I learnt a lot and made the best friends of my life. Education quality is not at par with international standards. More qualified professors are needed.

  • ENTRANCE PREVIEW

    I took IIT JEE in 2011. My all India rank was 2446 in General Category. I had multiple friends in various IITs which helped me select my preferences. I ultimately got acceptance from IIT Kharagpur in Aerospace Engineering which I later changed to Computer Science in my second year.
  • FEE STRUCTURE AND FACILITIES

    Fee structure was feasible during my time. Tuition fees is 25000 per semester, and hostel and mess cost around 20000. This is very affordable compared to non-IITs. But recently the fees have been hiked. Per year cost is now approx 2L per annum. This is expensive but IITs have collaborated with many banks to provide interest free loan facilities.

    PLACEMENT WING

    Really good. Placement starts from dec 1 every year and CS department is placed in the first few days. Similar companies as internships visit for placements as well, additionally Companies like World Quant, Tower Research, American Express also visit. Packages vary from 14 LPA to 40 LPA in CS.

  • REMARKS

    We have an annual alumni meet where alumni from different batches come every year. Alumni also contribute by sponsoring our tech and culture festivals. There are also many inter-hostel competitions where students participate. Seniors are most helpful in these cases.

    FACULTY

    Despite offering a variety of courses, many professors are not well equipped/interested to teach the courses well. A few classes involve just reading from the slides, or inability to involve the students. That is not true of all faculty though. Most professors especially teaching system level courses are well read and explain in great detail giving interesting projects.

    CAMPUS LIFE

    Campus life is vibrant. There is nothing outside the campus (Its a village really), so students engage themselves in variety of activities. There are many tech societies like Robotics and Space Exploration, cultural clubs like Fine Arts, Dance, Drama, Western Music, Eastern Music, campus newspaper like TLS, Awaaz, and Entrepreneurship society called ECell.

  • EXAM STRUCTURE

    There are two exams per semesters for each course. Labs are weekly. There are at most 3 Labs per semester. The weekly schedule can get really hectic in second and third year. Additionally there are assignments which consume much of your weekend. In fourth year, you start working on your thesis as well, which takes additional time.

Overall it lives upto your expectations. The college has good infrastructure. All the classrooms are well-equipped with projectors and seminar halls are good.

I took AIEEE (now JEE MAINS) 2011 & scored 287 in the exam. I opted for this college because it is one of the best engineering college in India. The admission process is pretty simple; one has to qualify the entrance exam then give the preference list as per their choice of branch & college, accordingly the option is allotted to candidates as per their rank in various rounds of counselling.

Remarks -

There’s no place to be at in the vicinity of the college since it’s located off the highway and students need to travel real far to get to places.The canteen has the exact dimensions of a DTC bus (perhaps it’s even smaller) but it’s definitely more dirtier. The food is cheap but tastes awfully bad and the students are unable to suggest one good thing to an outsider.

For the admission all you need is a JEE rank and a scoreof 50%above in 12th with PCM

Unlike the engineering counterpart, attendance here is not taken lightly. 75% attendance is absolutely needed, under any condition. There have been cases where students have been debarred even at 74%, so basically it’s strict out here and you need to attend religiously. Only a dress code is compulsory, and no other specific disciplinary rules.

There are seminars held in the college round the year but not by some big corporates. Students are made to understand how business works by showing a few presentations by start ups that have made big in life in a short span.

I would highly recommend this college to all those looking out for a career in mechanical engineering because there is no such strictness on the attendance and thus you can enjoy life and study only when you feel like.

You must score an average of 55% or above to grab a seat in Amity Kolkata, along with compulsory subjects that are physics, chemistry and biology or you can have mathematics if you don't go for biology. After applying you will be called for a round of interview and an English essay to test your writing ability.
