I choose this college because of its improvement every year. It was only established in 2010 and has become very famous for its placements. All the facilities (like classes, labs, hostels) are excellent. The faculty is very helpful. Just one concern that the number of students taking admission is increasing rapidly each year. In 2018, about 900 students took admission then about 1400 students in 2019, and now 3500+ students in 2020!! (only engineering) Admission process : Chitkara University doesn't conduct any entrance exams. You can take admission based on 12th or JEE scores.
I am in CSE. I choose this course because the maximum number of companies coming for recruitment is from the IT sector. There is one mentor over a class of 50 students. The teaching method is good like the teacher first teaches the concept thoroughly and then shows its practical code (or anything) on the whiteboard. In each semester, there is one End Term Examination (ETE) at the end of the semester of each subject and 2-3 Sessional tests (ST) and 3-4 FAs. In online mode, they are of MCQ pattern which is easy to solve.
A CSE student can get an on-campus internship in the third year and an on-campus placement in the fourth year. Other than on-campus, we can find intership ourselves on apps like Internshala, freelancer, etc. Several companies visit the campus for internship purposes. We can also apply for off-campus internships.
Our university is famous for its placements. No. of companies visiting the campus for recruitment is more than 1000. The most known companies which recruit from our university are Google, Microsoft, Infosys, Wipro, and many more. A CSE student can get an on-campus internship in the third year and an on-campus placement in the fourth year.

The fee for BE/BTech is 82k per sem. And for a hostel, it is around 50k per sem (including mess and laundry). It remains the same throughout the course. Chitkara University does not provide any kind of scholarship in the first year, however, from 2nd year onwards, you can avail yourself scholarships based on 1st year's result.
Rangrezz is the annual fest of Chitkara Univeristy. The algorithm is the annual cultural fest and Bienvenue is the fresher's party. Apart from these annual fests, DJ nights are arranged once a month. Books and journals are always available in the library. Classrooms are really largely consisting of large round-shaped benches. Each classroom has 3 slidable blackboards and a projector. Sports is the best thing in our university. For indoor games, there is a hall named "Sportorium". We can get any game carrom, chess, Foosball table, badminton issued with an identity card. And for outdoor sports, we have "Sports Arena" which has volleyball, basketball and football ground. And a really large cricket ground named Omega zone in front of hostels. There are a number of clubs for dance, tech, non-tech, and many more.
Hostels are really appreciable. They provide 4 beds, 4 almirahs, 4 study tables (small light above each table), 4 chairs, 4 shelves, curtains, a dustbin, 2 fans, 2 tube lights, a cooler/ac (as opted) in a 4 seater room. There are only 4 seater rooms available for fresher. Till now we were having only common washrooms, but the new hostel with attached washrooms is ready and some students have been shifted to it. Each girl's hostel has its own mess but boys hostels have only one common mess. We get 4 meals a day (Breakfast, Lunch, Evening Tea with snacks, and dinner). Food quality is good (obviously not as good as home food).

More students and more competition. Less chances of getting good jobs.
CGC Landran | CSE
Very bad infrastructure facilities. Only 1 girls hostel (oldest) having accommodation for 1200 girls.
LPU being a fairly new university has made their name in such a short time and the main reason being their good placement drives. Big companies like Amazon, Cognizant , Capgemini, TCS, Flipkart etc. have visited and selected from the university. The highest package offered have gone above 30 LPA . More than 40 companies have offered dream packages or so said. A great number of students opt for higher studies and get great jobs in companies like google , apple etc.
Since I am in first year so I can't tell anything by experience but I can list the things that I've read and heard. A lot of companies visit the campus and major placements are from the B.tech branch of CSE where 80% of students get placed and if you want a good package so make sure you've done the efforts to earn it from your side. If you've made so good efforts and made your time count in the university, there are higher chances of you bagging a good package.
As soon 4th semester starts, B.Tech students are eligible for placements and placements to start. 4th is more of placements rather than study. The highest package is 42 LPA, and for most, it is 7-8+ LPA. I plan to get a job after the degree.
Basically, you will get more placement opportunities for IT companies and they offer a decent package to students. Companies like Amazon and TCS also visit campus and take 5-10 students with an excellent package. But students must have good skills to get selected. The highest packages are offered by amazon on average 25 lakh. But you can get more good packages by applying off-campus placement drives. Other streams have very few placement opportunities as very few companies visit. So you must aim to get a good CGPA Of 8+ score so that you must be eligible to get eligible for every companies placement drive. If you have plans to go abroad for higher studies, you can avail this opportunity in LPU as many programs offer this service by going to partner universities of LPU in the respective country. So you must be aware of all the available opportunities on the campus to have a good carrier.
Here a total of 800 students per year & about 450 students gets college campus placement. Or no. Getting a job in the armed force or other gov. Jobs. Upto 65 companies visit. Here like Infosys,coca cola, Amazon, hero, Tata, Mahindra, etc. 55% of students get placement.
Placement rates are very good highest placement provided was of 42 lpa and 39 lpa. Generally, 89% of students get placed from this branch. The number of students is fairly high in each branch but then also the university doesn't disappoint in providing placement to a maximum number of students.
I have lived there for Four years and i am proud of my decision to choose LPU. There is nothing to regret about. All i can say is everything is fine. Infrastructure of the college is exceptionally beautiful and mind blowing. Faculties, senior students all are really helpful.
Everthing is good except the staff. The staff should be well educated. And tge students should have the right to wether come to college and wether not means the 75% attendance rule should be changed.
