Also the light fittings & fans are working efficiently to provide comfort for night study. The overall maintenance & administration was good. Average rentals was around 1500 rs per year for students.
Alumni meets are held in Navratri festival as the CEPT is also very famous for there Garba dance. The students had formed CEPT Alumni groups & forums for each department wise. Also faculty members guide students to maintain the same. I met our senior Mr. Naveen Garg (Batch 2004 passed out) during Navratri Alumni Meet.
Faculty members at CEPT was prominent & having very strong background of research as well as their on-field work experience. Many of our faculties were part of professional bodies of engineers in India. Also we were fortunate to have guidance of visiting faculties who were associated with other prime educational institutes like MICA, IIM, Pandit Dindayal University etc.

At CEPT we organised hadicraft & wire models, metal casting workshop for students for open to all. sports we encouraged cricket & football mainly. student diversity was very high.
Exam structure was mainly in written in each semester with internal & finals.but the project submission & seminar was very frequent. We were given a schedule of presentations to be prepared by our faculty members & we have to prepare a detailed structured presentation by our own having reference from books,journals,practical data & other sources.
No, internship was not provided to us in M.Tech (Construction & Project Management). but during our batch we proposed to have internship in companies near Ahmadabad with least or no stipend. But the permission was not obtained from management as their prime concern was that students should focus whole day-time in versatile study.
