College Infrastructure
Yes , the college infrastructure is really good it seems like a top education centre and the libraries are good they provide almost all required books and sports complex is the best part it is excellent and well maintained.
Academics
I am pursuing btech in computer science becuz I have interest in coding or programming from 11 class .I am also interested in web development and developing in things . The curriculum is updated and includes all the recent developments. The quality of teaching is preety good.
Placements
Placements are good ,but only for CS only m more than 70 percent students get placed in CS batch . And the average salary offered to them is like 6-7 Lpa. For other branches placement quality is need a high change to improve Their salary package rest depends on you and your skills if you want you can also apply for off campus placement .

College Infrastructure
SDM college has well infrastructure, facilities and equipments. The facilities in classroom, laboratories, libraries,sports centers and hostels are extremely good. Placements are not up to the mark for mechanical and civil branch.
Academics
The academics of the college is not so good... lectures are not up to the mark...just the infrastructure of the college is good and placements for IT'S are good where as placements for civil and mechanical branch are not good
Placements
The quality of placements of SDM college is average... because during our period there was not even a single placement for civil branch.. placements are good only for ITs. The average salary offered was around 3 lakh per anum.

This college always plays not only a college role but its like second home to every student who studies there. Great experience to study in this institution. It transfers a student into a professional engineer. Professors are too good and teach not only the syllabus but also the life lessons. Nice campus, great mess and hostel. Free buses for localities is the greatest thing. Includes all main engineering branches with good teaching and non-teaching staff. The college drags a little when it comes to the placement. It is having the excellent environment and one of the calmest places in Dharwad which help for study environment. The unforgettable and most lovable thing by all at SDM is Chola Batura and Rhonda soup. Coming to academics, the teaching staff is excellent and almost all are in the same field for more than 20 years in our branch and are too much friendly with students which help students to talk with them without any hesitation and clarify their doubts. Every year they will conduct College fest and no one can match that level of celebration in Karnataka.

It's shit. No good looking girls at the college. It's a total waste of time and money coming to the college. I'd rather sleep in a poultry than in my hostel room. I'd rather talk with a cow than a faculty of this college. This system is horrible and bad.

As I said in my title sdmcet dharwad is one of the best colleges you can find in north Karnataka. The college has the huge campus and beautiful garden. Hostel facility is fabulous . Mess and hostels are maintained neat and clean. Food which is served has good quality and taste. The college has a big library with many good books. The placement rate is increasing exponentially every year. So I suggest sdmcet which will give value for your money.

* The teachers of CSE department are not good . * NO campus placement for IS and Mechanical dept . * Approach of teaching is not up to the mark . * The college faculties are not interested in conducting co- curriculum activities . *The college is treated as the school . * The College timing is 8 - 5 ,which makes u bore and headache.

1. Infrastructure of the department could be improved as it was an old building 2. Encouragement for the internship of students incorporate could be done to provide more exposure for them which will help them in their career 3. Technical festivals which helped greatly in exposure of technical talent was more enjoyable 4. More placements for students of EC department is required 5. Professors could stress more on practical learning 6. Placements are good and it has been recognised as a zero ragging college

Faculty was the first thing for which I decided this college although placement was poor. The college has lost many of the good professors now. The autonomy of the college has degraded the college. But on the other side college is very good in extracurricular and co-curricular activities.

Its a really college for studying Mechanical Engineering. Located outside the city so away from city crowd. Well connected to city by college buses. Good hostel. Friendly faculty. Good scope for extracurricular activities. Good practical exposure. Good placements. Big library with huge collection of books.

One of the top college in north Karnataka. Now an autonomous institute with very good infrastructure and state of art facilities. Very competitive staff with great experience. Located in the education hub of Karnataka and also an emerging industrial belt in the state.

"this is not some canvas or advertise my college. But its one of t best in Karnataka It comes under top 50 private college in the entire country . The college has good infrastructure. Syllabus is self designed. The autonomous nature will surely help students. Experienced and expertised faculty is the best thing one can get. Hostels are separate for boys and girls. 3 each for them. Indoor playground for table tennis, badminton and outdoor basketball court, cricket ground etc will help in keeping the mind refreshing There is a huge well equipped laboratory for ea ch course Library is one of the best in north Karnataka More than that there is digital library and 24*7 browsing center to aid learning. Coming to placements, its very good. Top MNCs visit the campus and about 85% of conversion rate. Especially computer science and electronic communication have 100%. Overall u can shape a good career out of here. "

SDMCET is an autonomous institution.. It is one among the top ten in Karnataka. The infrastructure is really great. Separate and spacious blocks for every department with well-maintained and equipped library and laboratory healthy learning atmosphere. Well maintained lawn and garden.. The placements are pretty good companies such as TCS, infosys, informatics, persistent system are regular visitors this year sdmcet had Sony too. Separate hostels for boys and girls with well-maintained mess. Apart from the mess two canteens and one bakery within the campus.. A Karnataka branch along with ATM is also located inside the campus lots of encouragement for sports and extracurricular activities.. Portions are completed well within time and the exam system is really great. Attendance is strict the overall administration is good any official or clerical work is done quickly.
