SSCBS, New Delhi
College staff is helpful and polite but they need to more active in doing their work. Regarding the faculty they need to be proactive and more practical towards their teaching approach. About the infra I would say itﾒs a thumbs up now as the college has taken a huge acres of land in Dwarka and is shifting their very soon.
Being a Delhi University College you have to fill a common application form for all the colleges. No entrance is required admission is on the basis of your 12th Percentage. Cut-off goes around 92% which does drop a bit in the second cut-off. Also there is a 5% rebate for Science students. I got in with 87% percent in best four subjects in 2010.
FEE STRUCTURE AND FACILITIES
Fee structure very much feasible as it is a DU college compared to all other computer courses from private universities the fees was very very less. It was around 25 thousand per year which is nothing for a computer course where you have cost involved in the lab facilities as well.
The most important thing that i realized was that this course is not a replacement of B.Tech. You will not have many placement opportunities and they are not that good also after all it is just a Graduation course not a professional degree. I had to do an MCA to get better IT opportunities. So think before all the aspects before taking any decision. Also there are many financial courses in the college which has a entrance and has lot of placement opportunities as well but Comp. Sc. over here is not given that much focus.
No hostels were there in the college but there were PG facilities nearby the college which were not difficult to find no mess food you have to arrange the food by yourself but there were many options outside the college. The locality around college is very good although it is not located in north campus. There are many malls and multiplexes close by so you would not feel secluded.
This is a very disappointing fact that the college does not do anything to be in touch with the alumni or exploit their experience in any way it completely depends on you to be in touch with your seniors or alumni for any advice or experience.
Faculty is knowledgeable but they need to be updated with the latest technologies going on and not just focus on theory and delivering their lectures. I will have to say that some faculty is willing to help and have the knowledge but not all. You will have to work hard on your own in some of the subjects as they exams are pretty difficult in DU.
The locality around college is very good although it is not located in North Campus. There are many Malls and multiplexes close by so you would not feel secluded. Lab facility is very good but the infrastructure of the college is not very promising. You will feel disappointed at once after looking at the college infra but the college is getting shifted in Dwarka now with a huge campus so you would not face the glitch now. There is a Tech Fest that takes place in the college which was very good and interesting. Events like Lan Gaming, Programming, Dancing, Singing and various other games.
Yes too many exams and assignments as it is semester course you will have difficult times and exams are pretty hard so you need to prepare well. Each semester had 5 subjects and practicalﾒs associated with them. The practical exams were in the college itself by an external from some other college and the for the theory exams there was a center in some other DU college.
COURSE CURRICULUM OVERVIEW
The course curriculum is historic and is focused on research and math more rather than computers. The course needs to be revised according the current IT industry needs and needs to be more practical oriented but course curriculum's do not change easily in DU.
No internships provided as such i remember a Session by HCL was organized in summer vacation about learning JAVA which was good and practical and the college took a little amount of fees for that but was very less and was completely worth.Need to have more of such sessions.
There was a tech fest that took place in the college which was very good and interesting. Events like Lan Gaming, Programming, Dancing, Singing and various other games but as the college is not located in north campus you wonﾒt have that much fun over here.
LOAN/ SCHOLARSHIP PROVISIONS
I do not think there's any loan facility for the General category students yes scholarship was provided to the student who came first, second and third in the university but the amount was not much. It was more about recognition for your hard work.
