There are good placements and job opportunities as far as mechanical engineering is considered. All the students who had no back papers has got a placement. The main recruiter is Tata Consultancy Services. The college doesn't directly provide any internships but the college has many connections with companies which provides internships.
I wrote an entrance exam named KEAM. The authorities of CEE-Commissioner for Entrance Examinations equalised the scores in the entrance examination and the 12th marks and added and based on the marks a rank list will be published. Admission to the college is based on the rank list;those who have lower ranks will have higher priority. I could have chose Computer Science and Engineering which has more demand, but I chose Mechanical Engineering because I wanted to a mechanical engineer.
As the hostel seats are few. I got myself as a PG. There the rent is 6000 ? per person including food but no laundry. The rooms are shared by three persons. The room is somewhat okay. There is an attached bathroom with the room also.
The seniors are very helpful and friendly. There is no ragging at all. We can approach them with any doubt at any time. Also the alumnis are very helpful. They bring placements from the companies to which they're posted.
All the teachers are experts in their subjects. Almost everyone has a phd from IITs or NITs. All the faculties are very friendly and they'll repeat every single word for even a single student to understand.
In Mechanical Engineering the boys-girls ratio is 59:4. Its common in Mechanical Engineering. In other regards students has a variety of categories of people. And yes there are many workshops conducted in the college. There are many sports activities conducted here. Both intercollegiate and intracollegiate matches of football, cricket, basketball, etc are conducted. And there is an annual sports meet also. The labs are awesome. They're in good conditions.
COURSE CURRICULUM OVERVIEW
The course structure is research oriented and application oriented. There are frequent labs and exams(both for labs and theory). It helps in maintaining a hectic situation for students. But the questions in exams should be answered in such a way that there is also important to the path not only for the answers.
There is a cultural festival called melange conducted in our college every fourth year and it's going to happen this year. There is a tech fest next year. As I'm a first year student I haven't experienced any of the fests so I don't know much about it.
LOAN/ SCHOLARSHIP PROVISIONS
I don't know about any scholarships given by the college. As it's a government college only scholarships by government are given here. and I think there are scholarships from various alumni Associations and all but it starts from 2nd year.
