The infrastructure is good though the clg doesn't have a seperate building University of delhi provided the indore stadium building it ofcourse has all the facilities like good computer labs and classrooms ith decent wifi but we don't have hostel facility but for girls there is .
Academics
The best thing about CIC is the curriculum they follow it's so nice and the lecturers are well profiled and the way of approaching to every student is good. The seniors teach us too here as we work with them the whole year.
Placements
Though the CIC doesn't help you to get placements on campus as it's an innovation centre but the alumni has the students who got a job of good packages.the package as I heard was nearly 12-14 lakhs per annum
Value-for-money
The semester fee is 5k and it's totally worth it as it's a central government institution the fee is way too less
Campus Life
Since I'm a covid batch student I couldn't get a chance to enjoy the clg life but the seniors are very friendly and they help you in every situation actually we learn more from them than the lecturers
Anything Else
One of the underrated colleges in india

Beautiful infrastructure with all the facilities. Yes there is a rugby ground , library, laboratories and many more . There is a engineering kitchen in the campus . Modern technology equipment for practicals.
Academics
I'm currently pursuing my btech in IT and MI. The quality of teaching online is that great . There is a lot to know about cic please go through the brochure you will know more about clg. Go through the brochure or website to know more.
Placements
There is no placement cell in this college , as the primary focus of this college is to bring Innovations, start-ups and great minds. But with the knowledge and the brand value of the college you can crack a job easily.
Value-for-money
5000 per semester is the fee . It is the best thing about cic.
Campus Life
You get to meet many students from different parts of the country and great diversity . You get lot of support from faculty and seniors aswell.
Anything Else
CIC is a great college , if your primary focus is Innovation and entrepreneurship this is the best place👍

College Infrastructure
College has a centralised AC which doesn't work, there's no staff for washroom cleaning, faulty electrical lines. Hopes these issues get sorted soon. (Writing this in July 2020). Once resolved, the infrastructure is first rate, modern and post colonialist.
Academics
The curriculum in CIC for every course is research centric, so there's one paper dedicated to semester long research for four semester over the span of six semesters of BA. With one of the best mentors and the intensive research we get to do, we're enabled with the ability to become one of the finest undergraduate researchers which will help those looking forward to a career in research. But I wouldn't recommend CIC if you're looking for a regular college and thinking to change stream after UG.
Placements
There is no placement cell. However you can opt for off campus placement. If you're looking for placements, studying more than six papers of a discipline over your entire course, don't like dissertation/research/practicals every semester, want to change stream after undergraduate, this is not the place for you.
Value-for-money
Amazing! Every course is available for 5k per sem, cheapest college in DU.
Campus Life
Since CIC is a CENTRE for innovation offering research centric courses, we lack extra-curricular activities. We have a music society and a quiz society but they aren't recognized. So, consider it a research centre rather than a college. But we somehow try to arrange fresher's and farewell.

College Infrastructure
No sports for students, No vantilastion , Classes and corridor are clean, wifi facility is there in every class with high speed, good view from the canteen, computer lab is good, other required labs are available too.
Academics
You are own your own if you are not connected with your seniors. After coming to college you do not ask for queries again and again like you do in school life, here make friends ask for help and do by yourself
Placements
In CIC, there is no placement cell till now, students have to find jobs by their own, actuallyafter completing the studies from cic students don't need any reference as in course here we have to do internship so this makes resume very attractive and can get jobs easily (if available)
Value-for-money
Totally value for money
Campus Life
Not bad not good

Cluster 'Innovation' Centre and you will get to know why "Innovation" while being a part of the institution. Probably you all for once had surely thought of being a boss and having your own company which is exactly the purpose of this institution, having ample startups coming from their institution. Its course content is very nice. It has an excellent infrastructure for students. Also, you have to do internship every even semester with a minimum of 6 weeks and semester-long projects every odd semester, which I feel is quite helpful for me. Teachers are very supportive, they will give you the time to do your own project without the boundation of attending classes. It has a very peaceful atmosphere.

Its a good concept as it brings the meta college concept to India. Work needs to be done in terms of logistics and cultural societies among some other things. Considering that its been just 3 years since this course started, we can expect an improved course in the future.

Infrastructure: Top class. Centrally air-conditioned building, well-equipped Computer Lab and Robotics Lab. Best facilities available. Corporate Exposure: Various MoUs have been signed with organizations like DRDO, Tata Power Delhi Distribution Limited, and National Innovation Foundation. These organizations regularly take in students from CIC, for internships and projects. Moreover, the course curriculum of CIC itself includes internships at the end of each even semester, and a semester long industrial training in the final (8th) semester. This provides students with extremely valuable industrial exposure. College Life: The college is relatively new, as it was set up in 2011. While many student initiatives exist within the college, such as a drama society, a music society, and a photography society, there is still a long way to go! Placements: The ideology of CIC does not support placement. However, what is highly promoted here is the culture of entrepreneurship. Regular seminars and talks are organized with various well-established people from the industry, who are willing to take in CIC students to support their work. Moreover, students have set up several startups within the college, with the help of funding from its own incubation center. Apart from this, a student run placement cell is under development, as of 2016, and is expected to by functional by the summer of 2017. Individual placement offers (off-campus) include people joining IBM Research, Pitney Bowes, McKinzey, and various other reputed companies. Additionally, many students from the previous batches have chosen to pursue post graduate studies, pursuing a variety of degrees including M.S. and M.B.A., from elite institutions like UC Berkeley, ISB Hyderabad, Trinity College and Oxford University among many others. Hostels: The college does not currently have any hostels, and students are accommodated in Delhi University Hostels present near the campus. These hostels are few of the best available hostels in the University, with all facilities lined up nearby. The specifics of each hostel vary. Faculty: The ideology of the college has always been being self-dependent and hard working, to achieve one's goals. Students here, in turn, are often found working on various big projects by themselves, and making it big in the industry. The college provides exposure and environment for the same. The faculty here, however, is mixed. There are some who have tremendous experience in their fields, and are just what you can dream of, while there are others who lack considerable experience and knowledge. This mix, as it seems, is present in most colleges. And hence, it is the student's willingness to make it big, that the result would be determined. Student/Peer Group: One of the major highlights of this place is the peer group. Students joining CIC are often self-motivated to do things that any other college might not allow them to. This is the primary reason CIC provides much flexibility in terms of course and work. Students here have often built up associations with big names in the industry and have maintained the atmosphere of "Innovation and Creativity" within the campus. Peer learning is particularly emphasized upon here, and a majority of the clubs and societies are student run, with little intervention from faculty members or authorities. Fee: Delhi University colleges offer most degree programs at extremely affordable rates. While most engineering colleges cost a student about 5-10 lakhs in the duration of 4 years, the fees here is a mere Rs. 5000 per semester, totaling up to Rs. 40,000 for the 4-year program. Moreover, there are almost no overhead expenses in college, as the Central Science Library of Delhi University is open for the students to issue any books they might need.
