PEC is a great place to study engineering and probably one of the few engineering colleges with the perfect mix of fun and studies. The Campus being in the lovely city of Chandigarh is a rich experience to have. Most reputed event in North indian colleges PEC fest is organised every year with great enthusiasm and a lot of students from all major colleges in the country come to participate in the various cultural and technical events organised over a 3 day period.
Wonderful social life we had enjoyed at PEC. We had over 10 offical clubs and societies, and more than a dozen unofficial societies. We had PEC Fest, Tech Fest, other regular events, we had a happening sector 11 market of chandigarh just a few walks away from our hostels. natural chandigarh beauty with lively environment. In total, I enjoyed my days at PEC, and I miss those wonderful days.
College Management is excellent one of the best Engineering College in India. Backs good ranks in surveys.
Being an alumni, i would say that the college is an awesome amalgamation of academics and fun though 100% perfection is not possible, but i would say that being associated with pec gave me the best moments of my life.
Every college makes an unforgettable impression to its students and PEC has a good reputation among its alumni. I have seen a lot of Ups and Downs in the 4 years of my college life but overall, I have a very positive impression of my college in my mind. Big plus to Campus life, Clubs, Fests, Sports, Hostel Life and few negatives to Century old buildings and curriculum, Lazy faculties and Non-decisive management.
