Placement Experience :

During the third semester, the training starts. In this, students are supposed to go to a 5-star hotel for their industrial training. Usually, there is some stipend offered along with other facilities. After 3 years, when the course is completed, you have plenty of options to choose from. From Mcdonald's and Starbucks to Oberoi and Marriott, it's all open to you. Going for a master's degree after this is not required as this is sufficient.

Placement Experience :

Placements are not that good but teachers' recommendations play an inevitable role in getting jobs. Some of the top notch companies like KPMG, Boston Consulting Group do come but recruit only a few students and that too at a low package (approx.4-5 lacs).

Placement Experience :

From semester 6 the students become eligible for placements. Minimum 60% (average of preceding semesters) is needed for placements. The percentage of students getting place varies every year. My plan is to get a good-paying job and also to do MTech degree. I'm in third year currently, will be going to final year in August/September once this COVID situation gets litter better. The placements have not yet started because the college has not yet reopened.

Remarks :

Very good college with good faculty and lots of exposure due to high number of patients, both coming to outpatient department as well as those getting admitted for treatment or surgery. Life in the hostel is pretty chill. During exams it gets a bit hectic

Remarks :

Only good things are their in the college but as we all know nothing is perfect. It just depends on students expectations and how much work he,she puts in to achieve it. The faculties have set different criteria to judge students. Normally the marks are given based on Attendance,Assignments,Quizzes and the end term Exam and project report. As i told earlier the classes schedule is hectic but you will get acquainted to it and will very well learn how to manage your time.
