The college location is in Alandi so during the Yatra there is a lot of chaos at that time. The area is governed mainly by localites and Tapkirs. So, if there is any fight or anything you can never complain against them.
The Course Curriculum is designed considered the modern approach towards the tools and techniques of engineering. Beginning right from the freshman year a lot of projects are given to students for various subjects. The submission process for the assignments is online and periodic unlike the university pattern. There is continuous assessment of students in all the courses. The exam pattern is currently semester. There is an In Semester Exam and End Semester Exam for each course. The In Semester Exam is of 50 marks, these are converted to out of 30 and End Semester Exam is of 100 marks that are converted to 40, thus the student has to pass in the exam out of 70 marks for each subject. The remaining 30 marks are of internal assessment. This consists of quizzes, assignments, tests and classroom activities. The passing for this is seperate but the marks are combined for grading. The passing for all the courses is at 40%.
Teh placements are really good for Computer Science, IT, ENTC compared to core branches like mechanical, chemical, civil. Internships are okay, some internships provide stipends while some have no stipend.
Different events like Freshers party, farewell party, annual gathering, traditional day, Bollywood day, saree day, tie day and festivals like Ganesh Chaturthi, Lohri, Dandiya are celebrated in the college.
The fee structure is quite expensive compared to other colleges in Pune University. But the fee can be paid in installments and many scholarships are available as well. If you are a candidate from OBC, SC, SBC, ST, etc. then the fees are affordable.
I have availed the TFWS scholarship. It is the Tution fee waiver scheme. It reduces the college fee to almost 10%. For benefitting from the scholarship, your score should be in the top 5 percentile of college and you should belong to the non creamy layer. This scholarship is for all candidates, even open category students. Other scholarships like EBC and caste schemes are there. Then scholarships for girls and merit students is also available.
The sports committee includes games like chess, carom, basketball, football, cricket, volleyball, athletics, kho kho,etc. There are many other events and fests in the college. Some lab infrastructure is missing in the college for certain practicals though.
I was in the college girls' hostel for 1 year. The hostel has facilities like washing machine, oven, fridge, parking space, television, WiFi, daily room cleaning service, pest control. It is a furnished hostel.
The alumni network is really helpful. Many of the senior students are doing well. They give guidance about the placements, companies, market scenarios, internships, exams and college related activities as well which is very helpful and makes things easier.
I had appeared for Maharashtra CET for Engineering, then filled the form for the CAP round and gave the preference for college choices. In 2nd round I got admission in the college. CET is common entrance test and CAP is Centralised Admission Process.
Some faculties are really good and they are well versed in their subject. But there are some teachers who are unable to cope with the autonomous system of the college. Some teachers are really supportive in research work and extra curricular activities of students.
For BTech students, it begins from 8th sem, though the interview occurs in 7th sem. For a dual degree, it happens at the end of the 10th sem. A lot of companies do visit and a lot of offers are made, so I think the highest package was 1.5crore offered to a student of our college. Usually, these students have a cpi of above 9.5. I personally haven't planned anything yet.
From 7th semester students are eligible to sit in placement activities Cognizant , Capegemini, Tech Mahindra, TCS ,Infochips, Infoceps , Serium, Delta and many more. Average package is 4 lacks and highest is 7.5 lacs. CGPA requires 7 for eligibility 95% of the students are placed in very good companies. My plan is to work with a multinational company.
The college aims to 100% placements with an average package of over 3.5lacs/annum. The students are eligible for the placement by third-year second semester and so on. The highest packages range from 18-24 lacs/annum for a fresher. The training and placement cell is proactive and has worked towards bringing good placement opportunities for the students. Last year packages ranging from 18-24 lacs were offered by Japanese companies and by many other companies.
Very good college but a minute problem is that shegaon is not a very big marketplace but its a holy place blessed by sant gajanan maharaj. College has very good atmosphere and the best thing that i liked is the cleanliness in college premises. Also gym, atm, hospital is available inside the campus. There is direct route to railway station or bus station via auto. Only 20 rs.
The events are organised by students themselves. The faculty help in that. There is no as such campus crowd. The extracurricular activities are good, but few people support it. The technical fest of the college is organised by students committee which is not much impressive.
