    Remarks -

    Every undergraduate student gets Rs. 3000 credited for the books bought every semester under the scheme of "book grant". And library provides textbooks to all students at the start of the sem and collects them back after end sem exams. This is the only space university in entire India. So you will leave the campus with a unique degree and get a tag of scientist if you get placed in ISRO even if you work very less there.

    7.3/10 student satisfactory rating
    Since this Institute is focussed on producing Scientists, so some students more than 60 out of 120 after completing B.Tech from here on, ISRO absorbs them and other got to go for higher studies and research. Toppers of Aerospace department have given the opportunity to go for California Technology on the funding of Govt. of India. For M.Tech students, they go for PhD since the referral from here on is very good.
