My Experience in GNDEC

Posted on 07 Apr' 20 by VIPUL SHARMA

College Infrastructure
The college infrastructure is almost average. It is almost in the exact condition as that of the institution's establishment i.e. 1956. The labs of Civil, Mechanical, production Department are very good and one of its kind. But labs of departments such as Computer Science, IT, ECE are way backward and are almost obsolete. The classes have no special feature just old uncomfortable benches, and slow rotating fans. And most importantly there is nice provision for Sports Oriented People in college.
The quality of studies declines as one gets promoted to a higher semester. Though the focus of teachers in the college is on getting higher grades and ultimately on better placements. But the least focus is given on the Main Point of Understanding the Subject and on Research. Though with the given grace of TEQIP-3, college's academic pattern is changing and moving towards the holistic growth of the student.
The college placement has been driven fairly so far. **Caution they aren't in any way comparable to the Top Tier Institutions i**. The highest placement offer was of Rs 16Lakh by Samsung (**only one student was selected from ECE**). Companies like Infosys, TCS, Accenture, TechMahindra are the major recruiters giving an average salary package of Rs 3 lakh to 3.5 lakh. Almost every dedicated and hardworking guy can get placed, given that he/she has no active backlogs during the placement time.
So for a Bachelor's of Technology, one will have a Tuition Fee around Rs 40k-45k per semester. And the hostel costs around Rs 10k- 13k per semester. So in total, it costs Rs 90k (approx) per year for Day Scholars and Rs 110k (approx) for Hostelers, excluding mess fee (**around Rs 2500 per month). The fee and expenses are pretty moderate as compared to other institutions, but I believe that there's a lot of scope of improvement.
Campus Life
Frankly, there is no college life in this college. **Caution- Don't take admission here, thinking that all sorts of Fancy Stuff would happen here just like in the Heavy Budget Films**. Social life in college is dead. I've been to many colleges like IIT-Bombay, Delhi, Ropar ,DTU, NSIT. In these colleges, you could see a lot of hustle-bustle even after classes are over. But over here there are no active clubs or societies. One could only engage in sports activities to soothe the mind.
Anything Else
In total, the college is good with nice fame from early times. One could easily get admission over here (**maybe not in top branches**). The college has a decent environment, but not competitive. If you don't have any option then take admission over here and take this as a Catalyst for future propulsion.

College Infrastructure
My college have neccessary equipment but in some department there in not enough Equipments are avialiable. Facilities of our college quiet good. My class is good and wifi provided to all students as well as hostlers.
I am studying Btech with computer science beacause i have lot of intrest in computer languages even i learnt two courses related to that. I want to create some new ideas and my main focus is on my job .
Quality of placement of our college is not goid. Companies approach to my college not so good. companies gave low annual income to students that is not suffient for his living .so student applied outside campus for job interview
I have to pay about ONE LAKH ruppes per year include my hostel fees and my meal fees is diffent which we have to pay monthly . Sometime i feel my money that my money is waste ,not beacause of study beacause of hostel facilities.
Campus Life
Our college campus is good not too large not too small .my college campus have 3 play ground ,2 basket ball field and batminton field etc. There is lots of facilities for physical exercise . One college gym is also provided for us.
Anything Else
Overall we want to tell our college is good and quiet comfoartable.

In recent years, the college placement has improved. In the last year, the package offered has gone high as 30 CPA. The college does not face the problem of placements due to less number of students present in college. Getting placement from this college is pretty easier. On an average, the package offered to the students was 8 CPA to 9 CPA. I got 15 CPA but still i am not satisfied.

Shivangi Kumari 28th Feb, 2020
Hey Nitesh,

Yes it is possible to take the admission in GNDEC , Ludhiana. The Punjab government reserves 85% of the seats for Home students but 15% of the seats shall be made available for the students from All India or other State Quota. There are two methods to get admission into the college:-  One is you should have appeared in JEE main examination.  Other is direct admission ,by which also you can make it to GNDEC.

Hope this helps!

Sir hamko guru nanak Dev engineering college Ludhiana me cse Mila hai.and mmm gorakhpur me civil Branch Mila hai Kya behtar hoga hamae liye

Aditya Agarwal 11th Jul, 2019

Hi aspirant, thanks for your query.

First of all, you should choose the branch which interests you most because colleges are good. MMM gorakhpur is a state university and Guru Nanak Dev Engineering College is an autonomous college, this way gorakhpur is best but choose your passion which is most important. Visit the following link for comparing both the colleges:

Hope this helps!

GNDEC, ludhiyana kaisa college h for

chandni nandy 17th Jun, 2019

Rishi, whenever you want to decide if a college is good for you or not check its placement assistance and its ROI. The top recruiters in GNDEC are Accenture, Capgemini, Jivo Wellness, Nestle India, Wipro, Infosys, Mahindra & Mahindra, CTS etc. The average package is around 3.2lpa. The highest package is around 10lpa. And the lowest package is around 1.8lpa. The fees for the four year course is INR 406,000/- for four years without hostel facility. ROI (Return on Investment) is good enough to go for B.Tech. I would recommend you can consider this college.

Let me know if you have any more doubts.
