NIT UTTARAKHAND is an institute of national importance and is TEQIP-3 funded. It was my home state NIT and near to my home. 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.
I chose mechanical engineering since I was fascinated by the way machines worked. This is the domain of engineering, where daily life physics is mostly observed. This was the branch I could relate the most to. Mechanical department has the greatest number faculties than any other department in the institute.Most of the faculties hope PhD from renowned IITs or NITs,while some have done their MTech from these reputed institutions.As far as my department is concerned, the teachers continue to adapt their teaching techniques to the needs of the students.This has been equally true in online classes as well.The term exams are easy to be passed or can be well scored in, if one follows the directions of the faculties.
I haven't opted for any stipend based internship yet.

There are several clubs functioning in the institute- Cultural and Fine arts club,Sports Club, Photography Club, Literary Club, Adventure Club and Technical club.All the festivals are celebrated in the institute with vigour and joy.Several competitions are hosted by various clubs throughout the year.DJ Night is organised at major events.Annual Fest Cliffesto and departmental competitions (technical in nature) were organised before we came to college as Freshers.Sports events are the majorly hosted throught the year.Classrooms are furnished with smart tecahing facilities.
No scholarship for general category students. I am not aware of any loan facility or scholarship provided by college.However, SC-ST students are provided by some scholarship by government.
WiFi facility is above average and speed is pretty good, greater than 1 MBPSIn the absence of permanent campus, size of library isn't big.Sports facilities are good but not great as compared to other NITs.Labs are well furnished with equipments.
2 roommates in a room.A bunk bed with a chair, table, a common rack, an almirah for both, two switch boards, two tubelights,two wall fans and a table fan.Mess menu is fine, if not very good.Meal quality can be rated 6/10.Registration process for hostel and affordability is very easy and convenient.
The students become eligible for campus placements after the 6th semester. Xebia, IBM are some of the companies that have ties with UPES and come for placements every year. Adobe, Microsoft, Infosys, Wipro are few other names that visited for placements. The highest package ranges to around 18-24 LPA. 98% of students get placed according to the university. For now, I am planning to secure a good job after the degree.
As the university has one of the greatest placements throughout the country in the petroleum field so I opted for the following course. The Teacher to student ratio is 9:1; teachers are helpful for academics as well as professional things. Most of the facility holds the degree of the doctorate in their field and also has great work experiences in their field. Exams are conducted two times in a semester and the rest are internals which is conducted throughout the semester. If students focus on what teachers teach in classes and can easily pass the semester examinations.
Placements in GKV are average In mechanical branch very less students get placement. From 8th-semester students become eligible for placements. Many big and small companies come here to placed students in companies like Wipro, Gail, and Infosys, etc The highest package was offered 8 LPA, the average package is 4 LPA, and the Lowest package was 2.5 LPA. In the mechanical branch around 10% of students getting placements but in CSE around 50% of students getting placements. My plans after getting the degree are to pursue my higher studies and I want to do M.Tech in automobile engineering.
From 4 to year student become eligible for the campus placement. There are many companies visited in the college but the placement is done on the very low package. Around 70 % of the students get package around 1-3 LPA. My plans after getting a degree will be to give the gate.
Students become eligible after the 5th semester to be able to apply for college placements. 5-6 companies visit every year for college placements but most companies don't offer good jobs. Around 75% of the students get placements from college campuses. My plans are to apply to big companies like Google or Amazon via gate exam or MTech.
Faculty is friendly with the students by not just academic means but also by any professional mental help. You can reach out to your teachers through their mail for their cell phone numbers. Examination conducted in each semester is in two parts, One is is mid-semester other is end semester. And the overall result for a year is displayed after two semesters.
The College provide very good placement for management students like for marketing and sales. But there are no serious placement for B.Tech, were they suggest technical students to join management company. In terms of teaching the faculty are qualified but there is regular changes in faculties so there is very less interaction between teacher and students. The practical labs are very less used for students as compared to used for online examination purpose for outsider. They are various cultural technical celebration in our College but they charges money from students who don't even participate also. College infrastructure is very good as compared to other Colleges at dehradun. But I recommended not to take admission in this College.
