Management, infrastructure and facilities, all are pretty good and enough as per student's requirement, placement opportunities are good and it depends upon student how they make good use out of it. Hostel facilities are good and fees is reasonable, mess provides good and hygienic food which are up to the mark with taste and quality as per casual Indian dishes. Alumni are good and supportive towards their junior (but "actually" it really depends upon you, that how do you treat the second party so as to respond respectively).

CGC Landran is one of those colleges that was at the top of the list when i was preparing to fill forms for colleges last year. State of the art infrastructure and supportive faculty are the plus points of the college. Hostel life can be a bit messy at times, so a good flat or pg with friends near mohali is strongly suggested. A lot of things keep happening in campus (example MTV colours of youth) and many more club activities of which one can be a part. And placements are always based upon what one does in the four years of engineering. College brings you the top companies, you must have the ability to grab them.

The college is good or bad on your basics... 1~ the campus location is the best one can get with shops just outside the campus and transport facility is also really good 2~ the college infrastructure is above average and crowd is sort of average but not an issue 3~ the faculty is good 4 those who relly want to study but afterall its not an IIT.. 4~ the college is really strict on attendence issues and 75% attendence is must... but teachers sometimes get humble.. only sometimes 5~ hostel life... if u r confuse between pg or hostel then hostel life is far better..food is average but still good at sometimes.. And u should be in campus before 9:30..and all and all college life will depend on how u live it... for me its at its best!! Also the college is having two buildings Cgc and Coe... so u should ask them to tell u about that

Which is better Chandigarh University or cgc , academic wise , faculty wise , mainly placement and reputation

Vanam Nikhil 10th Jun, 2018

Chandigarh University is an Emerging university which has a good reputation among students. I can’t say the same for the recruiters. Its placements are average. The batch size in mechanical department was 800 when I was there. I don’t have actual data but I guess as much as 15–20 students were placed in core companies. Around 70–80 were placed in IT, KPO’s and BPO’s. They might say that they have 100 Percent placement but don’t buy it. The placement in Chandigarh university is around 20–30% Max. (I know about Mechanical Stream)
