College life is fun at DCE

Posted on 10 Sep' 16 by Arvind
Batch of Jan. 1, 2016 | BE Electronics and Communication Engineering
I did my B.E in Dhanalakshmi college of engineering. It has one of the best infrastructures.The campus is really large and good. Canteen food is good. Faculties are also really good . There were 50-60 students in a classroom. College life is really fun.Especially the culturals. It is really entertaining . Fees is affordable. My personal concern is that other than college bus , there can be other means of transport before the college. As the college is too inside the city, it is not that easy when it comes to transportation. But it's a good college to study your UG

Worst experience with the college

Posted on 13 May' 16 by Sneha
Batch of Jan. 1, 2015 | B.Tech Information Technology
There is no proper bus facility. Also, the college has stringent rules on hair, makeup and dress code. The college does not provide air conditioned laboratories. Dhanalakshmi jail of engineering is a prompt title for the college. There is no gender variability. Boys and girls not allowed to talk to each other. Also, no electronic gadgets like cell phones are allowed. Worst experience with worst placements.
