College Infrastructure
The college is in a very small building of only 7 floors in which floor no 5 & 6 is of another symbi college. The infrastructure is poor consisting old furniture, broken doors, non-working fan and lights etc.
Academics
The curriculum design is pretty good but the teaching quality is not good, the teachers are very knowledgeable but lacks in teaching skills. The curriculum structure is very wide and latest but mostly students have to study on their own.
Placements
The quality of placements is average, undergraduate degree holders face difficulty but the postgraduate students have a variety of options. I don't know much about the percentage of students placed, the average package for post-graduate students is 6.5 lakhs.
Value-for-money
The college seems a bit expensive due to its poor infrastructure and poor quality of education. For BCA 2018-21 batch the fee per semester is around 85000 per semester and the fee for 3 years is 5.2 lakhs approx.
Campus Life
The campus life is very miserable and terrible. There is no campus and it seems like a coaching center than a college. The college building is very old and their is only a canteen with limited seating and a reading room only

College Infrastructure
The campus consists of a single building of 7 floors including a parking space with can accommodate numerous vehicles at once. The campus is always well maintained as cleanliness is one of the mottos of the college. The food provided the in the canteen is hygienic and of variety so that students get to choose from a variety of eatables. The campus is covered with a large WiFi network available to students and faculty.
Academics
The curriculum of BBA-IT is A class as it provides a lot of knowledge . The faculty avails a lot of workshops and assignments for students to choose as per their interest. The curriculum is up to date with today's trends. The curriculum is a blend of two major aspects, Business and IT.
Placements
The college is supportive in terms of placements for the students attending a master degree. Variety of companies approach our campus for recruitments. The undergraduates are often encouraged to either start up a business or pursue a higher degree. The college is bringing in more recruitments this year for undergrads as well.
Value-for-money
The course coated 4lakh per annum as I entered through the NRI quota. I feel the college provides an experience that no student can deny to by providing most of the amenities a student would need. The curriculum is A class which makes it stand out of the crowd.
Campus Life
College campus has always a lively feel with students engaging themselves in plenty of activities such as workshops, sports events and other extracurricular activities such as flash mobs where students perform their field of interest. The campus is located in the middle of model colony where most of the amenities are present that a student would need.
Anything Else
I had a great experience in this college die to the helpful and supportive faculty who are always there for you at all times.

College Infrastructure
The college campus consists of one building which comprises of classrooms that are spacious enough to accomodate its students. The food served in the canteen is hugienic at all times as vleanliness is one of themain mottos of the college. The campus has a hugh broadband of wireless network which each and every student as well as faculty can avail.
Academics
The major plus point of SICSR is its amazing curriculum and faculty who provide students with practical experience with more emphasise in theoretical knowledge. The curriculum consists of two main aspects of today’s world, Business and Information Technology. The college helps us in making us job ready by providing ample of workshops to students and factory visits which would enable students to the real world.
Placements
Placements are not emphasized much on for students pursuing their graduate studies. Instead they are often encouraged to oursue a hugher degree or engage themselves in startups. The students pursuing Masters degree have a high acceptance for campus placements as leading companies come for campus recruitments. The college is supportive enough to students and help thwm pursue their goals.
Value-for-money
The course that i pursue consists of a cost of 3lakhs per annum. Due to the amazing and supportive staff and faculty along with the high exposure to knowledge provided by college i feel it is a value for money. I would recommend taking up this course of study.
Campus Life
The campus life is pretty lively with events happening involving fests, quizes and workshops which enable student to the real world. Faculty always engages students in activities apart from their studies to keep them active and sporty at all times.
Anything Else
My experience in this college has been great as it has helped me upgrade myself in terms of attitude,knowledge snd various other aspects that would help me in the future.

College Infrastructure
SICSR consists of spacious classrooms with libraries offering variety of books. The college consists of a huge broadband of wirless networks which only students and faculty have access to. The college campus is always kept clean being one of the main mottos of the college. The campus consists of one building that has 7 floors among which 2 floors are accomodated for Geology students and the rest for Computer Science students.
Academics
The course I'm pursuing is BBA-IT which consists of two main aspects in today's world, Business and Information Technology. The faculty has excellent knowledge in their field of study. There is a lot of theoretical and practical knowledge that a student inculcates by graduation which is often achieved with the help of faculty.
Placements
Placements are not usually there in the campus . Emphasis is more on pursuing a master's degree for the bachelor's while the master's students get a wide range of campus recruitments. There must be more practice of campus placements for the rest of the other batches too.
Value-for-money
The college is of a great value for money as a lot of knowledge has been put into students by the time they graduate . The college prepares students to stand strong in the real world by providing workshops similar to situations in the real world. The course I am pursuing costs 3lakh per annum for a period of 3 years. I feel it's worth as the faculty is very supportive
Campus Life
Campus Life is always lively with students engaging themselves in activities provided by the college such as fests, sports activities and workshops. The location is student friendly as it provides an ambience of student life with all the amenities in close proximity to the college.
Anything Else
My experience in this college until now has been great and would sury recommend students to take up this course.

College Infrastructure
College has week WiFi, not much use of smart boards. Les campus area constituting of only 1 building. Symbiosis hostel in SB road doesn't provide good food to consume and is often complained at. The food isn't a lot hygienic. Our college has facilities but can be improved a lot.
Academics
The course I'm pursuing is a blend of business and information technology, the two main aspects of today and the future world of business and upgrading tech. It provides us with the basic business concepts such as HR, finance, marketing etc along with java, python, c++ and other important computer languages. The curriculum as well as faculty is updated with the current trends . I feel there's a need for more practical than theoretical knowledge need to be provided by the college.
Placements
Placements until now are not upto the mark. There's no quality as well as quantity of companies/organisations that come to the college. Campus recruitments are not seen much in my college. College isn't very supportive of placing their students instead pursue future studies or startup a business. Students feel there's a need for a more support in the area of campus recruitment and placement.
Value-for-money
4.5 lakhs is the fees paid by me . I don't feel it's worth enough for the money being paid as there is not exposure which is very important for a college student such as myself. The college provides great theoretical knowledge but not much of practical knowledge which would be the main factor in the area of jobs for the future. Campus life is also not very great due to the absence of a campus instead of one single building.
Campus Life
Campus life is average as student are drawn to more studies than other activities. Location is safe but not very much commutable due to road congestion often caused. College fest's do happen which boost students which help in doing something different other than the daily life.
Anything Else
I would recommend this college if it had more infrastructure along with emphasis on practical knowledge more than theoretical. Campus recruitment and placement being one of the most important aspects of a student in college is not present much or encouraged much which is another down point . The major up point of the college is the great faculty and reputation it has. The course is a major up point as it covers most of the important aspects a student needs in today's world.

Symbiosis Institute of Computer Studies and Research is an educational institute located in Pune, India. It offers postgraduate and undergraduate degrees in the fields of computer and information technology and is part of the Symbiosis Society. Yes, we do have the internship in the last semester - 6 months. And, the stipend is around 15K - 25K. Ours is an IT institute. So, companies like - Cognizant, Capgemini, iBexy, HSBC and much more come to our college for internship and placement. The average salary is - Rs 6 lakhs p.a. Highest is Rs 8 - 9 lakhs p.a. Almost 90% of the batch gets placed in good companies. Alumni network is huge. We have alumni meet every year so that we make contacts and get the Business Card. This college is best for BCA. I'm glad to be a student here. A pioneer in IT education. Personality enhancer, Symbiosis is one of a kind.

Looking at the infrastructure of the college you'll only see a six-floor building, but there's much more in it. The computer labs are well equipped with the latest technology. Coming to the faculty, most of them are visiting faculties so this makes it difficult for students to contact them. The management of the college is not up to the mark. The schedule/time table of the college is quite rigorous which prepares you to for the hectic corporate life coming ahead in student's life. Hostel is low on available, it serves as the first come first basis due to which many students have to rent a PG or flat. Coming to this college you'll be learning important lessons in your life.

The college is overall good. The three years passed in an instance. The best thing about the course structure is that they update it every year according to the industry needs. About faculty , many of them are visiting faculties so it is a bit difficult contacting them. Coming to hostels the availability is low. Most of the students have to rent a flat or a PG. I didn't find the management of the college up to the mark. Overall I would rate 3 out of 5 for SICSR.

MBA IT after BCA is a good option. MBA IT graduates are employed by IT in Presales support, Account Management , Sales & Business Analyst roles. Sometimes you get Resource Management and executive assistant role to Senior leaders also. IT industry does not have designations because of flat org structures. Placement record is not bad. It's good. However, to be true, college doesn't set any requirement criteria to companies for all students to sit in placements. Even a student with 50% is allowed for placements. That is why package sometimes goes a bit low. As per current statistics 5-7 lacs is the average package.

SICSR is one of the leading colleges in India for the Computer Applications stream. Falling under the umbrella of Symbiosis International University, it attracts students from all over the country and others as well. Recently, their BCA programme was rated fifth best in India. I must say that their MSc programme, which I am a student of, doesn't fall too far behind. The college has an excellent IT infrastructure, which provides students with a stable platform to learn and build. The faculty is a mix of seasoned professionals and experienced personnel, bringing in a certain level of industry exposure into classrooms. SICSR is also one of the pioneers in Open Source Technologies, with initiatives and events attracting leaders of the Open Source Community like Mozilla and the kind. To sum up my experience in this college, SICSR doesn't only teach you new things, it teaches you how to learn things on your own. All in all, a place to be if you are looking to make a career in the IT industry.

I graduated from BCA from SICSR. One of the best colleges for BCA. Infact better than Engineering. I got placed at HSBC GLTi. The syllabus is based more on the industrial approach than traditional. They use better technology than normal traditional methods.
