I appeared for IPU CET entrance exam and applied to this college through IPU Centralised Counselling. Now the admissions are done on the basis of rank obtained in Jee Mains. Also, the main point to note that starting next year or maybe after 2 years it will be made as a separate University along with other colleges under Government Of NCT of Delhi as Skill Development Centre. Those seeking admission must regularly check the important dates and details on the IP University website, www.ipu.ac.in.
The main reason I chose Mechatronics over regular CS/IT/Mech degree was that this degree was gonna be the need of the future. Well, this field is definitely gaining attention in Countries like Japan, Germany, Singapore etc and so will happen in India in the coming years. Now talking about the course, The curriculum is good but I noticed that some of the things in this curriculum are old and are not updated to match the current technology. The syllabus was last updated in 2014. The faculty is good overall with a teacher student ratio of 1:65. Now, this ratio is decreasing every year as students mainly focus on core streams and not a hybrid of them.
Placement drives usually start from September for students who are in the 7th Semester. Currently, no company has come for recruitment in our college because of the COVID 19 pandemic. Also, our seniors who were placed lost their jobs because of the same. Speaking generally Maruti Suzuki is the biggest recruiter in our college, they hire on the basis of test and PI. Sadly most of the companies that come in our college recruit only tool engineers which is another discipline being offered by our college. Although there is very less scope for Mechatronics engineer still we can approach off-campus placements provided our educational record is good.
Talking about the fees, it's very less as compared to other engineering colleges. The year, I took admission in i.e 2017 the fees was 60k for the first year and 57k for subsequent years. Now the fees have increased to approx 86k per year for new admissions. Also, there are various scholarships schemes available to students given that it is a government college. One can apply to both the Central Government and Delhi Government scholarship schemes. Scholarships are awarded on the basis of merit, social categories, disabilities and also to students with parents having a defence background. So if anyone wants to apply for the scholarship. They can contact the college admin or visit the respected govt websites to know the eligibility and benefits for the same.
Well, this section is enough to break the dreams of students wanting to have a happening college life. The college campus is very small with a little ground that is utilised for all the sports (like gully sports). The college has a space of 5 acres but most of it is unusable because of dense vegetation, hill type slopes and also the remaining flat area that was left is being utilised to build an incubation centre for startups talking about the fests, there is an annual cultural fest conducted by GGSIPU namely ANOOGUNJ, also tech fests happen in the college by the name ENNOGY provided students take the responsibility to organise them and have enough patience and energy to keep asking college authorities to fund them. Also, there are no active clubs in the college right now. Talking about the classes are okay with proper ventilation and a lot of dust. Library along with book bank has almost all the books mentioned in the curriculum but not enough to cater to every student.
The campus Placements of our college is excellent. Many companies such as Flipkart, Walmart, google, Accenture, uber, etc visit the campus for placements and internships. 90% of the students get placed in the campus including both tech and nontech categories. The highest package was 16 LPA and avg package was 5.5 LPA.
The students are eligible for replacement from the 6th semester. The companies visited in our college are Infosys, ZS associates, Deloitte, TCS, etc. Day offer around 3 to 4 LPA. The highest package was 1.5 crore from Amazon and the profiles of the students are mainly from the computer science branch. Around 75% of student get placed every year. My plans after the degree are to pursue higher education from abroad.
Campus placement records are very good in this college. The college provides almost 90% placement in every branch. Special job fairs are organised every year for students in which prestigious companies like Tata TCS, TATA MOTORS, HYUNDAI, LNT, Tata tea, Pepsi co. and many more.
From 3 sem students become eligible for campus placements. Honeywell and adobe are the companies visited at that time. Students above 88 and 90 % are getting good jobs at that time. The highest package was almost 78 lakhs and the average was almost 9 lakhs.
Placement cell is giving better performance every year. Various companies for all the courses visit the campus every year. College starts placement activities in the 7th semester and preparation begin as soon as 6th semester. Recently Amazon web service offered 30 lac packages to 5 students but keep in mind that placement packages depend on skills acquired by students for which you will have to do courses from outside institutes. Average for CSE is around 3-4 lac but is getting better. CSE has better placement record as compared to other departments. College also conducts classes to help students in placement.
I choose computer Science because of my interest in the same. The amount of knowledge dissipated to u is the best thing and also having 2-3 practice lab periods really help you make ready for industry. The college can offer internships to their students which would be of great help. There are no. Of opportunities in terms of events technical and non technical that take place.
The college is more like a school but you'll eventually adapt to it. You'll learn how to adjust. Keep your expectations very very low, so that you don't feel bad. The college is academically focused, very strict with attendance and assignments. You can join it if you're academically focused.
