I have had a wonderful experience, with loads of learning, new friends etc. There were issues around placements and managements handling them but eventually it turned out fine for a lot of the classmates one way or the other.
I feel that every institute evolves with time. The course content, curriculum should be in sync with what the students are actually going to face in the market. Also the program need to have futuristic vision while ensuring that the capability of the students to visualise their careers 5-10 years down the line is improved and clear.
The college keeps you stressed out, but pushes you to give in your best. The professors are very approachable and the director is the best.
