The pros of AEC are that it provides a wide range of branches for pursuing BTech, which are not available in other colleges, and also other amenities within the reach, as AEC is situated in the metropolitan, Guwahati City. Cons are not as such, but the boys and girls hostel ratio is 7:1, hence accommodation for girls becomes a little problem in the 1st year, though it gets resolved after that. The admission process is based on the Assam CEE examination score. While going for the selection of colleges, we need to give our preferences, i.e; the branch along with the college in sequence, based on which we are allotted according to the vacancy. Scoring a high rank gives you more assurance of getting the most preferred branch. There are total 7 government engineering colleges in Assam, as follows- 1.AEC 2.JEC 3.BBEC 4.JIST 5.BVEC 6.GEC 7.DEC. AEC is considered to be one of the best colleges in Assam, it is the first preference for pursuing B.Tech for almost all.
I am currently pursuing B.Tech in Civil Engineering from AEC, and I chose Civil Branch cause I love it. The foremost reason for Choosing Civil was because that my father is an Executive Engineer, from the Civil department itself. And to be mentioned, Civil is one of the most demanding branches for government jobs in Assam, and too in the foreign sectors. I am not much sure about The faculty: student ratio, qualification of the faculties, review teaching methods, and conduction of timely exams, as I am appearing for my 1st semester currently, which went in the lockdown itself and we have not attended any offline classes yet. But according to the previous records, the faculties the good, with a pretty good number of teachers in each department, and too, includes guest faculties as well. Major exams were conducted as mid-sem and end-sem exams, and class tests and assignments were being given within the semester period.
The college provides at least 3 internships to all students. Also, many other companies come to college and provide internships. online internships are also done by the students of this college. College faculties help the students and advise them about these.
Placements are for 4th-year students. That is, students in the 4th year become eligible for going for placements, and according to previous records, AEC provides no. of placements to students, and from these, students are selected for different posts. This year, for the post of Assistant Engineers, all 33 students are selected from AEC.
The annual fees of AEC are 11,000/year, though this year, we were exempted from the admission fees as the Assam government decided to waive off admission fees at universities, colleges and higher secondary schools in the state in the wake of the hardships and loss of income in families due to coronavirus (COVID-19) and lockdown. Being a 1st-year student, we are not yet been provided with any kind of financial assistance, cause we are not required to. But pretty much sure, to receive such kinds further.
Every year annual fest of AEC, 'Pyrokinesis' is conducted in the month of February, and this year, because of the pandemic, the fest was not held. But, it might be conducted in the month of May or June, if not any further restrictions are imposed. This is the fest, of which every student eagerly keeps on waiting. We have a library in the main AEC administrative building, which consists of myriads of book. We are also provided with a library card, so as to bring books whenever required. The basic amenities, which are required for a classroom are new benches, large boards, fans and dice for the teacher to present to us, and these are all present in AEC, well-furnished. AEC provides you with a number of fields for your talent to be presented, be it sports or co-curricular activities. It consists of a drama club, jam club, photography club, nature club and a lot more, to develop and bring out the hidden talents of students.
For 1st-year students, dormitories are provided, consisting of 6-12 students, as there is only 1 girls hostel. From the 2nd year onwards, we are provided with rooms, consisting of 2-3 students. The dormitories are nice, having a bed and table for one student, and 3-4 racks to keep the baggage. The meal is quite good and is freshly prepared and served. Breakfast is provided between 7-9 with different items including bread, chowmein, fried rice, poori, rajma, etc. Lunch is provided between 12-2, with rice and veg items. Dinner is given between 9-10, with egg, fish, chicken, paneer on different days. Hostel dormitories are provided based upon the rank of the student in CEE, and local students of Guwahati are not allotted in the first until the students from far places get a bed booked in the Dormy. The admission fees for a hostel is 11,000, paid one time only, for 4 years, security money 2000, and mess dues 2000 rps every month.
The placement scenario is very good. The training and placement cell is responsible for bringing in more companies. The maximum placement is done in IT sectors and the CSE department gets the maximum paid jobs. The highest pay goes up to 35LPA and the average is 8LPA. Most of the students are placed in IT companies. Few core companies also visit but for that, the competition is very high. In CSE almost 100% of students get placement with an average of 10LPA. For other departments, the percentage of placement is a little less but more or less every decent student will get the placement if they work a little hard. My plan after The degree is to get a job from college. I shall be continuing my job for 2 years or so and meanwhile, I'll prepare for some other competitive exams like MBA or IES.
From 6th semester students can become eligible for placements. As I am in 1st year I don't know so much about the companies but I have heard that wipro and Oil India Limited came. Percentage of students getting a placement is average but if you are good in your filed their is a possibility that you can get the job.
From 5th semester students become eligible fir campus placement. The companies like ONGC, NRL, OIL, APDCL, etc. have visited the college and offered a lot of seats to the students. Highest 150000 per month package and average 80000 per month package are in record of the offer . More than 40% students get placement from this college every year. I would like to go for higher studies after completing my degree in this college.
Students get their placements from the 7th semester onward. Companies like COGNIZANT, VEDANTA, WIPRO, TCS, INFOSYS, HUL come here every year. Also PSUs like OIL, ONGC, APDCL come here for placements. In CSE around 80% of students get placed every year. In mechanical around 40%, in electrical around 45%, and in civil around 30% get placed every year.
The placement for CSE is good. Around 70% of students are getting placed every year. Wipro, TCS and many other companies and IT companies hire students from the CSE branch. In mechanical placement is average around 40% of students get placed every year. OIL, NRL, APDCL, IOCL etc PSU's came and hire students from the mechanical branch along with the privet companies. Placement of CIVIL is not so good and electrical is quite average. In IE placement in not so good.
My admission was through CEE exam whose Counselling process is automated & we just give college preferences. Then according to ranks we are allotted to different colleges in Assam. So I was allotted to this Institution. Some other factors are:-1. Guwahati is a beautiful city with a lot of professional exposure.2. Gauhati University is the topmost state-owned University in Assam. 3. The campus is beautiful with lush green environment.4. The professors are always reachable & guide us through any difficult situation we face.All in all I'm satisfied to have joined GUIST.
Placements are not as good as other colleges, rather the studies are better than the others. Most of the people opt for higher studies & among the rest, last year 90% got placed in companies like Wipro, TCS, Indian Oil, M&M, and some other companies either through the placement cell or direct interviews. As I know, highest salary was 12lakhs per annum(CSE) & lowest was around 3.5lakhs PA(ECE) & average salary was around 4.5lakhs-6lakhs(actual figure unknown).
This college was recommended by my brother. Campus infrastructure is good. The library is surely very good, it has a lot of books, which can be issued by students or teachers of the college through their library cards.
Very poor. Good companies do not come for placements, only few private companies come and take maybe few students.
I choose this Institute as it was something I wanted to opt for my career. As it has got the disciplinary which I wanted to opt for my degree. And the campus here is pretty good. There are lots of facility and infrastructure for the convenient of Dayscholar students too. The campus is a residential campus with a central Library for the students. And the college give a immense area for the Cocurriculam activities for the student to maintain a physical and mental health of the student.
Placement here are good. There are quite a good number of companies visited to college. The placement department here is good. The alumni of the Institute are very free frank and helpful. Every alumni of our college is quite reachable.
The student who wants to take admission to 4 years Full-time B.Tech Program should have passed 10+2 with PCM with a minimum aggregate of 50% marks from a recognized board. It requires clearing the entrance examination JEE-MAINS to enroll.
Placement and job opportunities are average. It changes from year to year and depends on the capability and activeness of the Training and Placement Cell in the college. An internship is provided by the college which is compulsory for all and helps in practice and learns things well.
College should improve alot in every aspects like teaching, placement, ragging free, and other facilities like canteen and hostels of their own. And obviously the wifi and internet facility is quite poor. Even we can't receive any signals in our phone network in particular operators like vodafone-idea, bsnl. Jio and airtel has a very little network.
