Recommends this college
The college is really very good and is lying in the lap of nature.Basically it is located 9 kilometres above the city in the hilly region.The faculties here are highly experienced, mostly graduated from prestigious institutes like IITS, Stanford, top government engineering colleges and are ready to help students every time.Along with the college studies they also guide students for the competitive exams like GATE, ISRO, IES,etc. The college provides you various curricular activities and chapters which helps students to develop their skills and personality. Various sports are available like cricket, basketball, football, table tennis, volleyball, badminton,etc. One big auditorium is also here in which dance and gym facilities are also there along with trainers. A big 3 floored food court is also there which provides a vide variety of dishes like south indian, Chinese, pastries, hot dogs, rolls, juices ,etc. The college hostel is good but there are some restrictions like strict rules, fixed timings,etc. So most of the students stay outside the campus in private hostels because of less restrictions and less hostel fees. One major problem here is transportation facility after 6pm as the college is above the city in hilly region and 9 kilometers away. So after 6pm students or local people take lifts from others or use their personal bikes or scooters. Those who are thinking to take admission must definitely join this college because of best faculties and good study environment. The salary packages are also very good specially for petroleum and computer science branch.
