    Remarks -

    The college is good ofcourse, an institution of national importance. But it is located in remote area and that's why many companies don't prefer to do campus job placements. That's a negative aspect for us. The positive aspect is our College stands at 10th position among all NITs in terms of MHRD ranking over quality of life.

    Remarks -

    The infrastructure is good but the if the older building are painted regularly they will look much better. Some of the uneccessary subjects should be removed from the curriculum. The shops in the campus should be questioned for charging more than what is charged in the town.
