Past few years, there have been many administrative change that may have eroded the credibility of the campus. I sincerely hope the institute takes enough steps to bring back the glorious past it had.
The course required entrance exam which was carried out at institute itself after clearing the exam students were required to under go through Group Discussion/Debate post which there were personal interview (PI). I choose the particular course to improve the Urban Development scenario in India.
The course was divided in four semester, first semester was common for all the planning students and post that individual labs and subjects were taught for 2 semester, last semester was reserved for thesis. The course also required students to undergo summer internship for two months after 2 semesters.
The course also required students to undergo summer internship for two months after 2 semesters. Various companies and organizations took students of CEPT as interns and paid accordingly, it ranged from 5000-20000/month.
Various companies and organizations came for placements and recruited students nationally as well as internationally, the package for the students were in range of CTC 3- 7 lakh. Although not all the students got placed through campus and placements.
Since the campus had students enrolling from all over India, the diversity was clearly visible as most of the festivals were celebrated with equal amount of enthusiasm and college committees were also formed so that celebrations are undertaken by students.
The only problem with the Institute was the fee structure, the institute over last few years has started levying hefty fees for each of the course, the rise over the years could be in range of 3 times than it was in 2011. It must be in range of 37,500/sem in 2011 which is now close to 1.2 lakh/sem.
The university although does not offer any loan but gives student stipend of Rs. 8000/ month to students who have cleared GATE national entrance examination. Afterwards, they may have started fee waiver scheme for some students.
It was lively campus as there used to be events, lectures from eminent persons and activities that kept campus vibrant all throughout years. The activities included sports week, celebrating various days and sometimes organizing blood donation camps. People from all region, religion were welcomed whole heartedly
The food at campus was mostly good and available at a reasonable price, after a year the contract got renewed and new company handled mess food, they started charging too much for food although their food quality was good as well. I was local so not aware much about hostel facility.
As the field of planning is not heard by many of the people, the alumni network does not have many members and most of people know everyone, the alumni es are working in various fields and they encourage companies to hire students of CEPT.
The exams were taken on systematically and required students to have in depth knowledge of particular subject, most of lab activity took too much toll on students as it required students to stay at campus for late nights, that said it made the campus more vibrant.
Initially after filling the form and sending the required documents in hard copy, I received letter from CEPT stating the procedure, timing of exam and other necessary details. The course required entrance exam which was carried out at Institute itself after clearing the exam students were required to under go through Group Discussion/Debate post which there were personal interview (PI).
The faculties were mainly helpful while conducting lectures as well as labs, they were also available all the time and you can easily go to their cabin and ask for any kind of help wrt to problems. The assignments given by them enhanced our knowledge of the subject.
As I was already doing my Bachelor's in Urban Planning from the same University so I had already planned that I will continue my Masters in Urban Planning from the same University.
Placement is well here because the Training and Placement department is having good relations with the industries and as well as with the alumni. Reliance Industries Limited, Feedback Infra, Urban Mass Transit Company Limited, Gujarat Infrastructure Development Board etc are the main recruiters.
As I had already so much interest in planning and architecture so I completed my B.Arch from Chandigarh College of Engineering and I was in the search of a good planning college and came across to this college and took admission.
Placement and Internship both the opportunities here are awesome and I got the opportunity to work in the CEPT Research & Development Foundation itself then got placed in HCP Design, Planning & Management Pvt.Ltd. as a planner.
For admission, I cleared the entrance test conducted by the University, it is known as the CEPT University Entrance Test. After clearing the entrance test, I cleared GD/PI and got the admission.
There are many placement opportunities for the planning students because every private and government organization which deals in real estate needs a planner who can plan the whole city.
The admission process is simple and easy yet because you have to only qualify an entrance exam conducted by the CEPT university and submit the document for eligibility checking and qualifying the GD/PI round, you get the admission.
Placement opportunities may vary from the private and corporate sectors to the government city and urban development authorities.
Overall this university is a very good university in everything. Every program is here taught with practical knowledge. Both the teaching and nonteaching faculties are very supportive and helpful.
After clearing the entrance test conducted by CEPT University, I went for checking the marks of the previous degree so that they can allow me for the GD/PI, after clearing the same I got the admission.
Planning a city may be a tough task for normal people but the course I pursued makes it a very easy task like a child is planning everything. I pursued the Master of Urban and Reginal Planning with a major specialization in Transportation planning.
Placement is good and it provides to get chances with well known firms or organizations after the completion of course. it may also provide the worthy payment of salary score. Many collateral institution and organizations come and give the chances to obtain the worthy and good salary job opportunity.
The subjects are so good and relevant to the course. Practical works are also focused parallel to theory. Extracurricular and non-technical events are also being done.
