Infrastructure : The infrastructure of our college is awesome. We have a circular lecture avenue where we get our lectures. The campus is very beautiful. The mess food is not bad. Non-vegetarian food is available for 6 days, but the vegetarians face some problems. There are many canteens and restaurants on the campus where you can get delicious food at a very reasonable price. The hostel rooms are fine.

Faculty : The teachers are very kind and helpful. The teaching quality is excellent; You will get industry exposure a lot, as the college always organises some workshops by previous alumni, to guide the students about their careers. The course curriculum is always helpful.

Other : We have 3 fests in a year: Nitrutsav, Innovision, and the annual sports fest.”
