Entrance Preview :

This is the best last option for me, as the environment here is great and due to great discipline, I opted UPES as my college for engineering. Also, the teacher here is good as compared to other colleges. But I drawback here is that fee here is too high, otherwise college is great

Course Curriculum Overview :

The course curriculum here is good as students here are well disciplined. As I'm studying in automotive design Engineering, so the course they have provided in my course is good enough. And teacher here is also too supported, hence making course curriculum great.

Internships Opportunities :

Yes, my college does provide an internship but not to all students. They are providing internship to a mechanical student in the marketing field, which is not good.

Placement Experience :

Placement of computer science branches are great, but in branches other than computer science, the scenario is opposite, placement is not there, mechanical engineer getting placed in a marketing company which is too bad for the students and as well as for college

College Events :

We've 2 types of events. One is uurja. Uurja is our cultural fest in which there is dance, singing, fun events, celebrity performance, DJ etc It was full of fun It is of 2 days Second is ignite Ignite is our technical fest in which we've to show our technical skills and we can win prizes

Fee Structure And Facilities :

This I must say, the fee structure of UPES is way-way too high, it is one of the most expensive colleges in India. The average fee in an Indian College is around 70k/semester but at UPES, you've to pay 1.50+Lakhs/semester, this is a huge amount and I must say, for a student like me, coming from average family is too difficult.

Loan/ Scholarship Provisions :

The scholarship is offered to the students scoring above 90% in CBSE boards and in college, you've to be in top 5 students of the college to avail scholarship.

Campus Life :

Campus life here is normal as we've to attend too many classes so we're not that much involved in campus life, the gender ratio is also not that much good because on an average we've 10:1, a number of boys in our college are way too much than girls in our college.

Hostel Facilities :

The hostel here is too good, well disciplined and is present on campus. The food quality is normal, not too much good but above average than other hostels. We've grills on the balcony so that no one can jump(in worst cases) and a hostel is in campus, no alcohol is allowed.

Alumni/Alumna :

We are connected on social media with the alumni. But sometimes our college organizes alumnae meat so that we can interact with our seniors.

Exam Structure :

Our college decided the 100% in 3 ways 1st is mid-sem-Your 20% of mid sem will be added in your final marks 2nd is internal-Your 30% will be added by your respective teacher 3rd- is end sem-Your 50% of end sem is added in your final marks. This how our college calculates our makes

Admission :

First I had given JEE PRE and UPSEAT exam by which I got 565 ranks in UPSEAT. Then the counseling process was there in which rank wise we have to select our branch (in which we want to study) and accordingly admission process was taking place. It was nice and well managed.

Faculty :

The faculty here are of two types, one which is very helpful and with a good attitude, second is the worse kind, they keep demotivating us, put unwanted backlogs, not giving well deserving marks. So we've both kinds of faculties. The teachers which help students like me are great and we have this kind of teachers here

Placement Experience :

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.

Course Curriculum Overview :

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.

Placement Experience :

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.

Placement Experience :

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.

Remarks :

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.
