This college was totally within my CET score limits and also it had a reasonable fee structure. That's why I chose it. As compared to other colleges, PCCOE absolutely has no shortcomings. It is an autonomous institute permanently affiliated to SPPU (like COEP, etc). It's ranked in the top 50 in India among all private engineering institute. Every year around 300-400 students get placed through campus placement. It also has excellent academic records with toppers in SPPU coming from this college. PCCOE has good laboratories, workshops with up-to-date machines and tools, some even advanced like VMC. The teachers are dedicated and experienced in their respective domains. Coming to the admission process, the admission here is through entrance exams and management quota. Entrance exams that are considered are MH CET & JEE- Mains. Seats are alloted based on cut-off and merit list. After selection, you have to bring in the required documents and go through 6-7 steps for completing the admission.
I am currently in Electronics and Telecommunication branch. I chose this curriculum because it has vast scope and application in the real world. Also, my passion for hardware is another factor behind choosing this curriculum. The faculty to students ratio in EnTC Department is around 1:6.5 and this is the same with all other departments in PCCOE. The faculty is really dedicated and hardworking. They are experienced in their own fields. Some have obtained a PhD and all are M.E. The main focus is given on practical teaching. Thorough preparations for exams are conducted. Lessons are taught with the view of industrial and real-life application. Also, some teacher teaches from GATE point of view. Whenever be the term exams, the faculty will be ready to support your preparations and throughout the exam. As my batch i.e. 2022 batch, is under SPPU, the exams are conducted according to their timetable and with timely efforts and preparations, it is simple to pass and score good marks.
The internship is mostly off-campus. You have to find internship and apply for them on your own. Some companies, like Adobe, Bentley, Goldman Sachs, provide on-campus internships for Software Engineering with a stipend of 15000 to 26000 provided their criteria are met and you have performed well in their tests. It is mostly for CS/IT branch. For other branches, Paid internship is offered by the college in collaboration with other firms and institutions.
PCCOE has one of the highest campus placements in Maharashtra and I can proudly say that. Students in Third Year 6th Sem onwards become eligible for the placements. Companies that visit our campus include Tata Motors, TCS, Wipro, Capgemini, Infosys, IBM, Adobe, Goldman Sachs, Bentley, Samsung, Accenture, Amdocs, Sony, KPIT, Godrej and Boyce, SAE, Mahindra, MindTree, and many more. The highest package offered was 32 LPA by SAE India for an Automobile engineer profile. The highest for Software engineer is 12 LPA and the average is 5 LPA. The overall average package is 4 LPA for all profiles. Around 85% of students get placed every year. I plan to go for placement and a job in Embedded systems after the completion of my degree.
As it is a private college, it will have a slightly higher fee structure but no worries as the scholarship opportunities save you from the fees. The annual college fees are around Rs. 1.20 lacs. You get various government and private scholarships and freeships which you can apply for. The college doesn't have its own scholarship. Scholarships like EBC, TFWS, Lila Poonawala, Cummins, Girlscript, IET, etc are provided. The admin staff is highly supportive during the entire scholarship process throughout the year. You can earn on campus by applying to the EARN AND LEARN scheme of the college, where you can work in the college offices after college hours. It provides an hourly stipend for the work done.
The best part of PCCOE is its plethora of clubs, & activities available for students. Extracurricular and sports activities are greatly encouraged and supported by the college. There are many clubs like Art circle, Coding club, Physics club, Maths club, Sports teams and clubs. Intercollegiate competition teams like SAE BAJA, SAE SUPRA, Robocon, SAE TIFAN, ESVC team, IIT BOMBAY e-Yantra team. Also a Google Developer Students Club is run by the students where tech enthusiasts can learn and arrange events related to it. Every year tech events are conducted. The two main events are SPEKTRUM and TECHNOFEST. Conducted in the month of January and March. It has 2 libraries and 1 Digital Library and a great range of books, journals, magazine. All the materials needed for exam preparation and everything. The college infrastructure is good. Classrooms are equipped with projectors, a sound system, good benches. WiFi facility is available throughout the campus. In short, campus life is wonderful.
For BTech students, it begins from 8th sem, though the interview occurs in 7th sem. For a dual degree, it happens at the end of the 10th sem. A lot of companies do visit and a lot of offers are made, so I think the highest package was 1.5crore offered to a student of our college. Usually, these students have a cpi of above 9.5. I personally haven't planned anything yet.
From 7th semester students are eligible to sit in placement activities Cognizant , Capegemini, Tech Mahindra, TCS ,Infochips, Infoceps , Serium, Delta and many more. Average package is 4 lacks and highest is 7.5 lacs. CGPA requires 7 for eligibility 95% of the students are placed in very good companies. My plan is to work with a multinational company.
The college aims to 100% placements with an average package of over 3.5lacs/annum. The students are eligible for the placement by third-year second semester and so on. The highest packages range from 18-24 lacs/annum for a fresher. The training and placement cell is proactive and has worked towards bringing good placement opportunities for the students. Last year packages ranging from 18-24 lacs were offered by Japanese companies and by many other companies.
Very good college but a minute problem is that shegaon is not a very big marketplace but its a holy place blessed by sant gajanan maharaj. College has very good atmosphere and the best thing that i liked is the cleanliness in college premises. Also gym, atm, hospital is available inside the campus. There is direct route to railway station or bus station via auto. Only 20 rs.
The events are organised by students themselves. The faculty help in that. There is no as such campus crowd. The extracurricular activities are good, but few people support it. The technical fest of the college is organised by students committee which is not much impressive.
