Remarks

My brother did his undergraduate at the same institute, he inspired me about the progress one gains at CEG. CEG also allows people to excel their passion in many domains like sports cultural activites or it could even be technical activities. One could get more exposure if they are really willing to do so.

Remarks

It is one of the top universities in the country with a great alumni background. A very impressive campus and of course a very spectacular social life. I, being a student from the central board (CBSE) had a mindset that getting into such a university was impossible because of my cut off marks. Yes, and that's how the admission takes place, the admission procedure is a long process taken into consideration based on the board cut off marks. Students interested in taking major departments like CSE, EEE, Civil, Mech., should have a minimum cut off above 187 in the respective boards. The counseling is entirely online and usually occurs in the month of July. I preferred this college over NIT because of the college's remarkable alumni and campus life.
