UPES College review from a first year student

YT
7.5 /10

Remarks :

UPES is one of the very few colleges in India that gives their students the chance to choose a specialization(that too in collaboration with IBM and Xebia) in their branch which makes it better than other colleges. Also now it is very well growing in Computer Branch after being among the top colleges in India for Petroleum. The only drawback it holds is its campus size which is quite small for a University but I feel its scenic location balances it out. Till now I have really liked how the college focuses on giving the industry exposure to their students making them practical in their field. One thing that the college should think about is improving the overall faculty because though most of them are Ph.D. holders but still there are some who are not well experienced and knowledgeable. For taking admission in UPES one has to fill in the Application form in the month of May-June from their website for the entrance exam and after clearing that they can move forward with the admission.

Course Curriculum Overview :

I choose Btech Computer Science as per my own interest and as this college provides me with an option to choose a specialization so it helps me to master a particular field in my course. The faculty is mostly of PhD holders except a few coming from top colleges of India like IITs and NITs and holding a great experience of more than 10 years in their field of teaching. The faculty: student ratio remains different in a theory session (1:50) and different in a lab session(1:20). Overall the friendly attitude of teachers makes it very easy for students to be open about their problems with them. Talking about the exam schedule we have one mid-sem and one end-sem in a complete semester. The breakdown for marks is as follows: 20(internal assessment)+30(midsem)+50(endsem). The difficulty level of term exams is medium to hard making it a well-balanced exam for all kinds of students. For me personally, it has never been really difficult. The college is very particular in conducting them timely.

Placement Experience :

Placements are good with an average package of 4.5-5LPA for the Btech branch. These packages also differ with the branch you select. A lot of companies like Tata, Google, Amazon, Adobe, IBM, etc visits the campus every year. I don't have much experience with the placements as I am in my first year only.

Loan/ Scholarship Provisions :

The fee is quite high as it is a private university. The average fee for Btech is around 1.5-2 LPA. For different courses the fee changes. There is some scholarship for girl students. Also, students are given scholarships on their board merit or JEE score. The placement record has been good overall as a large number of companies from both mass recruiters to good product-based companies visit every year opening a great opportunity for the student to grab. Apart from this the entrepreneurship cell of the college assists in setting up a start-up after college.

Campus Life :

Some annual fests are UURJA which is the main fest of the college. Apart from this many technical fests like Prodigy are also conducted. There are many technical student chapters like ACM, UCD, CSI, etc. which students join and learn a lot of important things. These chapters also conduct various hackathons and competitions. The college offers a digital library where any student can issue a book digitally with the help of their MyUpes account. It also provides free access to Coursera courses for 2-3 months in the first year. I have not been able to experience campus life much because of Covid Lockdown.

Placement Experience :

After 6 semesters you are eligible for campus placement. Placement is not good average package goes to 3 to 4 lakhs per annum and the maximum package every year goes is 10-12lakhs per annum. Companies like Byjus, Hindustan ventures limited, hcl, Vodaphone like companies came only. Every year Byjus offers the highest-paid package i.e 10 to 12 lakhs per annum only 3 to 4 students. Students less than 50% got placed in any company and the rest of the students didn't get any jobs from the campus placement. They have to apply themselves to get placed. Now I am preparing for gate and PSUs. So after completion of the course, I want to get placed in a well-reputed company with a reputed designation and package, if I am not able to do so I will go for off-campus placement offers. Because everyone wants a job when he/she got the degree.

Placement Experience :

Coming to the placement students are eligible for campus interviews from the end of 6th semester.There is good scope for computer science engineering students to get campus placements. and other group students like ECE, EEE, and civil engineering there is less scope of getting into the campus interviews.If you are good in computer science engineering and if you have a good percent and you can get definitely good placements in the university.And every year around 70 companies visit the campus and IBM is the good brand and hire most of the students. And in 2018 the highest salary package is 32 lakhs per annum. And lowest is 7 lakhs per annum.

Also I got my preferred branch in the college so I chose to go for it.Although, it doesn't have its own permanent campus and it's remote location (in a hilly area) has always troubled students. But the faculties are well qualified and dedicated. They leave no stone unturned in delivering their be94% st.

Remarks :

Overall its a very good College and one gets proper education and a whole new life experience. The College Campus is quite good and the best thing is that the hostel is in the same campus, so no travelling and extra hustle. This is overall a good college. Only demerit is that u may have some problem with the mess food but canteen food is really good.
