I am writing this , read the entire thing and then decide for urself. From my opinion,I would not say that it is not a bad place to study. But it doesnt have the standard that it should have had for that CENTRAL Tag in its name. It is neither good nor bad But it is THE PERFECT PLACE for Plastic technology. But things are changing, it is trying to be on par with top instituitions faster. If you are about to get SSN, CEG, MIT, ACT, PSG, CIT, ACCET, THIAGARAJAR, KONGU, BIT, SREE KRISHNA, dont choose CIPET (Because of its Central name). Coz Not much standards are here in CIPET. And if you choose you will get disappointed and you will end up writing like this. Inside and outside campus Being a new campus and being inside city, the campus is very small, extending about for only 2 acres. Not much big cafeteria inside the campus but people can go outside the campus during interval and lunch time and have food and drinks in bakeries and shops outside the campus. There is only canteen inside the campus which caters Breakfast like idly,dosa,pongal for morning , TEA during breaks, AND Veg food for lunch. And wed & sun only non-veg served.But the canteen is available only during their respective timings. Unlike most other engineering colleges in chennai, people can come to college in any kind of bikes and cars and can park inside the college premises. Another pro about CIPET is metro train access from alandur to koyembedu and Suburban railway is just 500metres away from the institute. Library What is there? * Got all academic books. * Got journals and newspapers regarding general sciences, plastic manufacturing and mechanical science. What is not there ? * Bad e library. * No reprography facility.(Photocopying facility available for only library books. Cant photocopy own books.But people can go to ekkatuthangal for photocopying them). Labs: *Has got good labs with working equipments. *But when it comes to lab, the Attitude of most professor remains the same like other foul engineering colleges. * Faculties judge you only by your capability to submit observations and records. Not about Loving and experimenting science. * In some labs, people are not allowed to repeat the lab experiments and in some cases they are not allowed to enter inside labs and they ll give E grade final exams irrespective of testing what students are capable of. Some people behave as if they were Nicola Tesla or Einstein or Niels Bohr.(happens mostly in first and second years) * But in some labs people can repeat their experiments if the faculties have time. Class timings: The academic timing is from 9am - 5pm. Each lecture period is one hour as it follows central Government pattern of academic timing comparing to other engineering colleges and anna unversity its 2o mins more for every period. Most classes will happen till 4 o clock. and In case of afternoon labs, the labs will happen upto 5 o clock mostly. And in some afternoon labs you can leave once you complete the experiment. And you ll get about 6-7 free hours every week. Programmes and Admission Criteria: Cipet offers two Bachelors in engineering and technology courses namely BE Manufacturing engg and BTech Plastic Technology. Affiliated to anna university. Admission to BE and BTech is based on single window councelling of anna university. Lapsed seats of BE and Btech are filled by applying directly to CIPET ACADEMIC OFFICE. Academics: Most professors are very lenient and a few of them are very strict. FOR THE CENTRALNAME, you cant enjoy the campus life like other central government colleges like CECRI,CLRI,NIT or even like anna university. Students can come late for class 5 mins or 10mins late. In first and Second Years Students must take notes and if a professor sees you not taking notes, you will be sent out of the class. In third years, you can be on your own and the faculties wont compel you to study. Few of the plastic department faculties are strict . Like everyone 40% of the students here has joined engineering just for a degree and dont know what engg is and just wanna complete their degree to write TNPSC UPSC IBPS etc.. PS Applies to only 40% of the students. Classes won't be like lectures . And no attendance burden at all. You can sit for classes on your interest, though classes wont be interesting. You are asked to maintain 70% attendance if you have proper medical reasons or OD permissions. Campus Life. You can be free inside the campus. Free to roam inside and around the campus during class hours. No one you ll question you. Because of the size of the campus and less amenities, you cant enjoy much about the campus. But can enjoy being in the campus. You can proudly say that you're a CIPETIAN but Also can proudly say that you can come in and come out of the college any time. You can't say that you have a big playground, but you can say that you have a very easy access to Phoenix , Forum mall and theatres like UDAYAM, JOTHI and besant nagar beach. May be cipet's name is not known to all, but you can say that you have a COLLEGE ID CARD THAT HAS ""GOVT OF INDIA"" MENTIONED IN IT. Not much big campus fests and techno fests but has got a symposium(NEGHIZHI, URUVAKKAM) and a techno cultural event(CIPOFEST) for 2days, butYou will get OD for participating in other college fests and technical events. The most horrible thing is the UNIFORM OF CIPET. Have told about 80% cipet. Still need more information visit the campus and ask 5-6 students and then decide
