College is good but the fees is a little too high and the state quota lowers it's quality as panjabis with low score gets better branch then others. The internet speed here is very bad and there is no night live here.
Exam structure is divided into 1 odd semester and 1 even semester each having a Mid Semester. Odd semester is in December and even semester is in April. Mid semesters are in September and February. Syllabus is provided at the beginning of the semesters.
Placements are really good in thapar. The average package is around 7 lakh per annum INR. Highest package goes around 40-45 lakhs. Companies like Amazon, Microsoft , Adobe etc gives placement offers here. College do provide internships. I'm going on an internship to Indonesia by AISEC.

Fee structure is very expensive. Overall one have to spend around 20 lakhs to pay tuition fees, hostel and mess fees excluding any extra expenses bore by the students which include stationary, daily items , travelling or eating out.
There are scholarship facilities here. If you score more then 8.5 GPA and are in top 10 percentile of your batch then you are entitled to get scholarship upto 1 lakh per annum. Bank easily give loan to study in this college especially SBI and ICICI bank.
Extracurricular activities are good here. We have well made, sperate grounds for football, cricket , hockey and courts for lawn tennis , badminton, volleyball,basketball and table tennis. There are societies which help students in horning their skills and labs are well equipped.
I opted for Hostel-B. Infrastructure is fine but facilities are not upto mark. WiFi speed is very bad. Mess is good. There are 3 lawns in hostel, a table tennis room, reading room and a canteen which opens during evening and night.
Alumni network is really good here as many are placed in top companies like Amazon , Google, Microsoft, Flipkart ,Adobe etc. The interaction between seniors and first year students is rare. Alumni network are helpful to get into good companies.
I first gave IIT-JEE mains and I got admission based on my all India rank. I had to apply the online form of Thapar after the results and then came to campus to verify my documents and got the admission letter.
The faculty is good and experienced. Tutorial are taken by PDH students. Lectures are taken by professors with experience of more then 15-20 years. Labs are taken by PHD students and a lab incharge. Professors are highly Knowledgeable.
The campus placements of college are quite good with many companies coming including Samsung, Airtel, JP Morgan etc. The recent collaboration of college with NVidia for some of its courses has also included it in potential recruiters for upcoming years. Although I have never gone through the placements myself (2nd year), I can't say much about it.
GNDU has one of the best on campus placements in Punjab and in India too. Many multinational visit for campus recruitments like Amazon, Naggaro, TCS, Infosys, Capgemini etc. The highest package till now is 12 LPA and the average package is almost 3.5 LPA. Every year almost 88% of students of GNDU get placed. I will also be appearing for a placement drive on the main campus.
3rd year, company visiting our campus are Capgemini, Tata consultancy services and Godrej Nestle Mahindra Infosys and many others companies. The highest package is placement is not more than 16 LPA. About 70% of students get placed. After my degree, I want to do civil services.
Overall our college is one of the best colleges to study engineering. The environment, faculties, labs, infrastructure is really awesome. The job opportunity is a little less, but if you Gain good knowledge then you definitely get placed in a well-reputed company.
