OVERALL EXPERIENCE OF BEING AT PIMPRI CHINCHWAD COLLEGE OF ENGINEERING
Management is quiet good and responsive. They will solve your issues as soon as possible. Management is quiet strict in case of following rules and regulations.
FEE STRUCTURE AND FACILITIES
Fee structure is feasible till date. Program Fee:98000/- per year. Additional fees are taken under name of development activities by college which doesn't made sense to me till date. Also they will charge you extra at start of your course for event so called S+ and it is mandatory to pay the fees otherwise they are not going to confirm your admission. Payment can be done by RTGS, Check and through online modes. College fee breakdown is given in the receipt but it is not that transparent to me.
Placement is strong point of our college. The placement percentage of college for CS/ IT is around 95-98% which is pleasing. Many companies visits our college like Capgemini, Accenture, Interactive Brokers, Quantiphi, Directi, Yardi, Schlumberger, Tiaa and many more. Recruitment is commonly starts with aptitude and coding test followed by 1-3 technical round and then finally HR round. Training program is taken before placement season starts so you can improve your chances to get placed.
I got admission in this college through MAH- CET which is state level entrance exam for engineering and medical students. I opt for Computer Science engineering as it is my passion to become a software developer. There are many reasons one can opt for this college. The main reason I chose this college was it's placements records of previous batches which was quite good. Also complete batch of Computer/ IT was getting good opportunities in top MNC's and good exposure to future technologies. Admission procedure was completely based on how you performed in MAH-CET which is 200 marks test consist of PCM(Physics-Chemistry-Maths) subjects. I was able to score around 140.
Yes. Hostel is located in college itself so it is very convenient for hostellers to attend college in daily basis. Hostel is alloted on basis of your performance every year. The rooms are shared between 2 or 3 students depends on rooms size. Also hostel is quite good and cleaned on daily basis. Common washrooms are available for students. Room size is perfect based on their capacity. You will not regret taking the hostel rooms. Hostel charges us around 70000 per year.
College seniors are always there to help you. They will guide you when you are stuck at some point. Also they will guide you to do things so that you can benefitted from it and also they plan meeting seminars for juniors so that they can grab better opportunity in future. Also they will keep you aware about on what topic to focus mostly. So overall it's good experience interacting with them. One of my senior provide me exposure towards competitive coding which is benefitted me in future.
Faculty of college is not upto the mark. They are teaching different subjects in each sem. So you will experience lack of confidence in their teaching so you need to focus on self study rather than getting them clear from college faculty. There are some faculty who are passionate and knowledgeable so you can rely on them for clearing your doubts. But otherwise college faculty is kind of average.
Campus area is spread in 13 acres. Campus provides football court, Basketball courts also ground for cricket, table tennis tables etc. so you can enjoy playing various games in campus. Also two canteens are present in campus and food is quite good. Labs are also well equipped with all required instruments. Gender ratio is good in college as it is located in urban locality. Strict rules against ragging or racism are designed by college.
