Fee structure is expensive but when compared to academic and overall facilities provided by college it seems to be feasible. The total cost of pursuing B. Tech degree in Chemical Engineering is Rs. 15, 28, 000. College accepts online mode for payment of fees i. e. by NEFT, Paytm, Netbanking etc. There is additional fees charged 2 times for Personality Enhancement Programme which helps students in improving their personality as well as prepares them how to respond during interviews at the time of placements. But there is no such additional fees charged so as to secure admission in the college. College has 3 different criterias for taking admission which are mentioned above and except them college doesn't seek any admission based on donations. Yes the college provide transparency in the fee breakdown. There is no such fear of extra money being taken by college. Everymoney you pay to college you know the reason behind it and you get printed receipt for it.

No, I haven't opted for hostel. But as far as I know college hostel has triple sharing rooms. The seats for hostel are limited and is mainly provided through merit basis in UPESEAT exam. You have to book the hostel seat same day to which you were called for counselling. The college hostel offers good hygienic food as well as takes full care of health, hygiene and sanitation of students. Ambulance service is available 24×7 for hostel students in case of emergency. Rs. 1, 57, 500/- Regular hostel for boys and girls at Bidholi and Kandoli campus. However, for girl students we also have a few additional triple sharing rooms with ad-on facilities only at the Kandoli campus as indicated below: Rs. 1, 75, 750/- for hostel room with attached washroom. Rs. 1, 97, 750/- for hostel room with attached washroom and Air conditioning. Interest free refundable Hostel Security Fee: Rs. 10, 000/-. But there is no need to panic if you didn't got a seat in hostel as there are many good hostels outside the college located within a distance of only few kilometers. Some are even providing better facilities in comparison to college hostels. Annual hostel rent of private hostel ranges from Rs 120000 to 150000. Prices may vary for single, double or triple sharing.
UPES is a campus which is Ragging free and it takes very strict actions if any action related to bullying or ragging any junior takes place. With my experience I find senior students are very helpful and friendly. You can ask them about anything, they will reply you in a friendly manner and will solve all your doubts and problems willingly. UPES alumini network is very strong as it conducts Alumini Meet every year. Alumini' s are also very helpful and during counselling you can find many UPES alumini's with whom you can talk and can clear all your doubts related to College.
I got admission to this college by clearing its entrance examination named UPESEAT in 2018. I then received a counselling letter for admission in various courses under BTech in UPES in which date and venue was available. Certain documents like 10th and 12 th marksheets etc. were to be brought for counselling along with a Demand Draft of Rs. 1 lakh. I went for Counselling in month of according to the slot and Date I was provided with. There I have to go through the counselling process in which I was asked to lock my first 3 preferred course in accordance to the seat left. As my Rank was quite good so there were plenty of seats available in my preferred course i. e. Chemical Engineering with Specialisation in Refining and Petrochemicals.
Faculty is very helpful and knowledgeable than most of the other colleges. Most of them have completed their PHD's and persued their Masters from various IIT's. They have a very good command over the subjects which they are teaching. Students complete their Minor and Major projects under the supervision of the faculty members. Also these faculty members proves to be off ultimate help as you can write and publish research paper under them. Faculty helps students in completing various research projects as well as in innovating new things.
From the last 2nd semester of your program, you will be available for placements. There will be around 200+ companies visited in 2019 like Microsoft, Samsung, Google etc, and offers made around 1000+. The highest packages are around 50 lacs while avg package lies around 10-15 lacs. 60 % of students got the placement offer as some went for higher studies. Doing the job and maybe go for MBA.
From the seventh semester, students are eligible for the campus placements. There are many companies like Infosys, Wipro, TATA, etc visit for the placements. The highest package of last year was 35lpa and the average package is 5-6lpa. The percent of students placed is 60-70 percent My plans are to get placed also.
Our curriculum is updated and includes all the recent developments in the field which makes us ready for the job provided one study with all their dedication. Whether a person will get a job or not it mostly depends on the hard work they put in. Teachers are qualified but if the student doesn't want to study no teacher can help them. I gave 7 stars because the teaching method is not up to the mark. This college takes a lot of money from students but lacking in giving that much quality. Exams aren't so much difficult one can pass the exam if they study for like 20 days before the exam. Questions came from what the teachers taught in the class and from their PPTs. So, listen to your teachers carefully and attend all the lectures.
I have no such information about campus placements. After 6th-semester students become eligible for campus placements (I think so). My plans after getting the degree would be to search for a good company with a good payout. I also thought that I would be taking the IES examination but as I am a student of CSE so I won't be able to apply for it.
There is average placement in this college for all streams of students. Approximately 70-80 percent of the students are placed in this college. The highest packages are around 35 LPA, And the average package is about 7 LPA. After getting a degree my plans are to place in good company.
