College of Engineering Roorkeehas announced admissions to various B.Tech ....
India has several of these institutes termed as the College of Engineering, suffixed by the name of the city it is located in. These were usually started when none others existed in the entire region for the topic of engineering. Many of them are also amongst the most respected in their region. One of them is the College of Engineering in Roorkee (COER), part of Uttarakhand state. This college is relatively young within this cadre, having been founded, quite recently, in the year 1998. The Seth Roshan Lal Jain Trust has been behind the establishment of the COER. The total campus stretches over seventy- five acres of land.
The College of Engineering, Roorkee is affiliated to the Uttarakhand Technical University (UTU), based in the state capital of Dehradun. The tech courses in the institute are recognized by the AICTE (All India Council for Technical Education). In addition, some of the non- tech course are affiliated to the Sri Dev Suman University, itself located in the city of Tehri, also in Uttarakhand. All this affiliation, ensures the approval of the UGC (University Grants Commission) as well. The COER runs programmes at both the UG as well as PG levels. At the under- grad level, on offer are B. Tech programmes eight engineering areas.
These are in the engineering areas of- Civil, Applied Electronics, Information Technology, Mechanical, Computer Science, Electrical & Electronics, Plastic & Polymer and for Electronics & Telecommunication. One can undertake one’s studies here in the professional courses of the BCA and the CFA. At the master’s level, the courses get more technical and specialised. So, the M. Tech programmes are available in two of the areas so far mentioned. These are in Mechanical Engineering and for Computer Science & Engineering. A master’s can also be undertaken for an MBA or an MCA. The admissions process is quite stringent here, across the academic areas and levels.
Scores of the national- level JEE (Joint Entrance Examination) Mains are taken in to account to assess entry to the UG level programmes. The GATE (Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering) holds sway at the master’s stage. For the MBA programme, admissions is via any of the nationally- recognized entrance exams such as CAT (Common Admission Test), MAT (Management Aptitude Test), XAT (Xavier Aptitude Test), ATMA (AIMS Test for Management Admissions) or the CMAT (Common Management Aptitude Test). Post the results of these tests being declared, shortlisted students need to appear for the PI (Personal Interview)- WAT (Written Ability Test) round.
The campus has much to offer. There are hostel facilities for both boys and girls. Banking facilities with ATM are available in the campus’s vicinity. There is a sports field where cricket and football may be played. Facilities are also there for indoor sports. The gymnasium may also be used by all. A large auditorium is there to facilitate major events, at both intra and inter college level. The campus is Wi- Fi enabled. Science laboratories have the latest of equipment. A health centre is also there to cater to medical emergencies. Hygienic food is prepared at the college cafeteria.
The college even has its own transport to ferry students to and from the campus. A convenience store is also located within campus. The library here is one of the best stocked within the region. Besides the physical books on display, it also provides digital access to en number of international academic journals for research and academic purposes. The library is connected to digital interfaces such as the DELNET (Developing Library Network). Online learning is another methodology that the college strongly endorses. That is why the College of Engineering, Roorkee has also signed up for the NPTEL (National Programme on Technology Enhanced Learning).
The entire academics here at the COER is run by a cohort of ten departments, each with expertise in its own area. These are for the ten areas in which the UG programmes are run in. Eight of these, being for engineering, while the other two are for management and for computer applications. The placements have also come up at the COER. Some of the key recruiters over the recent seasons have been the likes of- Accenture, Capgemini, 99acres.com, Asahi, Capital IQ, Aspiring Minds, L&T, Cummins, Genpact, HCL, Ginger, Newgen, Mphasis, JSW, Lava, NIIT, LG, Mahindra, Infosys, Jabong, RPS, Idea Pot, Tata Motors, Honeywell and many more.
Research too plays a very important role here. For this purpose, the College of Engineering, Roorkee publishes its own in- house academic journal. It is known as the Tejas International Journal. Its contributors include the faculty members, students, as well as external contributors. There are even some external reviewers for this peer- reviewed journal. Besides Tejas, there is also another periodic journal published called Anwesh. Several collaborative deals have also been signed up with other educational institutions to help with various assignments. All this and more has prompted the Careers 360 magazine to place the COER within the AAA category among engineering colleges.
Careers360 shortlists over 5000 colleges across domains each year. Out of these colleges, only those colleges are rated/ranked which provide transparent data requested by Careers360. The cumulative scores of colleges are then calculated and they are divided into clusters as per their scores. Careers360 ranks private and government colleges separately as the support system of both types of Institutions is completely different.
Based on the individual scores secured by colleges in cumulative score that they have received.
The colleges are ranked as per the cumulative score that they have received. The college that has got the maximum cumulative score will be ranked first while the college that has got least cumulative score will be ranked last.
Institutions that are promoted by the central/state or provincial Government or Government aided agencies.
