Chitkara University is a private institution with quality teachers and opportunities for every student who has an aim for a good job after completion of a degree. Of course, its a private institute so it would be unfair to compare with govt backed colleges, but as per my experience the teaching level and exposure is at par with leading private colleges in the country. I personally opted for this college as I wanted to be as close to my hometown, but couldn't get into PEC, Chd. Yet after spending 2 years of my life in this college, I have realized that student can achieve, gain exposure, be in the top brass if he has the zest to prove himself and needs to achieve something worthy than a degree. I can assure you, there is no ragging ( realized on my first day of college), clean campuses, hostels are in a good condition too. There would be ample time to pursue your ambitions, time to evaluate, find what you are truly made for if one makes time for it.
I am currently in the second year, but as I am in contact with my seniors, they really are satisfied with training for campus placements. Verbal and nonverbal training. Personality development is given special focus. During the placements and I have seen, that both core and noncore companies come for recruitment. Again, that's on the student if he cracks the interview. We have a special building and faculty for startups and we are highly encouraged to start our own startup if we have an idea. Chitkara fully supports the student if the idea is feasible. As successful startups can and will enhance the image of the college, especially a private college
Campus life is too good at Chitkara. As I am from the Solan campus, the surroundings are peaceful, picturesque views. I am having many friends who study at the Rajpura campus and they are all praises for the maintenance and beautification of the campus. Libraries are fully equipped with the latest journals, scientific papers, and books from various authors on every subject a student needs for his/her studies. There are noncore and fictional books too, which are fun to read during long weekends. Classrooms are all smart with projectors, mics, and whiteboards, and benches are arranged in such a way that even the student on the back, could view the board without any problem.
COURSE CURRICULUM OVERVIEW
Honestly, the teachers are kind of mixed bag, of highly educated professors who have industrial and professional experience in their respective fields and basic textbook crammers. Though, again I emphasize, that its totally on the student, what he chooses of the teacher. Either, he could go with the flow or takes extra efforts to reach out to the more experienced teacher, if he feels so. Believe me, it's very easy to approach to the requisite teacher at Chitkara if you have desire or doubts. Teachers are open to criticism, free to approach, and are a well of knowledge. They will go out of their field, if needed and clear up your doubts.
