College Infrastructure
The college provides basic facilities that a college should provide such as good classrooms, proper hostel rooms, wifi, gym but contrary to that maintenance is poor, washroom seats are broken and have never been repaired the entire time I was in college and being in 8th semester I do not look forward that some changes might happen. the college does not have a proper playground, it is just a small piece of land named as a playground, provided with sharp rocks.
Academics
I am currently studying Electronics and communication engineering , as it has fascinated me since I was in high school, but the curriculum and lab facilities provided let to the dismay, faculties are good and are quite flexible with few exceptions which exists in every college. The way we are taught does not at all make us job-ready, college every year charges a PDP fee and includes a class but never actually conducts it.you may get a degree but college placement in this college is a hoax
Placements
the college has a poor placement record, rarely a company comes for recruitment, and the company is the one who you have never heard of. You have to apply on your own at pool campus organized in various other colleges situated around 150km away from your campus
Value-for-money
it cost around 2.8 lakhs for the entire degree, so the per year cost is around 70,000. Nor You get a placement neither they make you filed ready, so I really do not think its a value for money choice
Campus Life
Campus life is pretty good, various activities are organized by students only. The campus is situated near Tehri lake and provides you some of the most beautiful mornings and evenings. you get a free medical checkup at the THDC hospital which is near to campus and a district hospital around 10km away.

College Infrastructure
Well maintained hostel rooms, classrooms, laboratories, library and hostel rooms. labs and classrooms are well equipped with smart displays, projectors, lab equipments etc. but sadly no proper sports facillities, small library, no boundary of college. food depends on your hostel tenders. internet speed and common washrooms maintainence is not upto the mark.
Academics
faculty is average overall (some good some bad).but the evaluation system i.e external(utu exams) is quite annoying and unpredictable. so student are more dependent on assignment marks. curriculum: guess its not updated well. although faculties try to conduct seminars on new technology but they are not manadatory for every one.
Placements
due to bad checking or zero transparency of how exams were evaluated. cgpa/%/Gpa is low therefore it breaks the confidence of the students during first year and they get depressed, some cope with it and grab good placements(off campus) . package given is around 2-4 lpa on campus.
Value-for-money
Fees for Btech degree is quite better than private universities at dehradun with same placements or no placements.
Campus Life
due to less funds we only have one fest i.e CIESZYC . there are many clubs but they dont work in synergy with management.
Anything Else
with the support of management we as an institute can be so much more vibrant

College Infrastructure
It is pretty good.It is established in 2011 by the thdc private limited,later on it goes under the supervision of uttakhand technical university. It is fully government institute. It has total 5 buildings.
Academics
The academics of the college is quite impressive. The faculty of the college is very cooperative with the students. The college also provided the library which is very helpful to the students. Faculty also helps us in our projects.
Placements
Placements of the college needs to be improve at a very high level. Students have very less opportunities to be placed in a reputed industry. Many companies ignore the college because of its location. So the college have to work upon it.
Value-for-money
It is appropriate according to the facilities provided by the college. The fees for odd semester is 37900 and for the even semester is 34600. There is no kind of extra charge apply by the college rather the fee of a particular semester.
Campus Life
It is good .The view and the location of the college is pretty good. The hills and the dam(thdc) increases the beauty of college.
Anything Else
The environment of the college is good for the students.The library is very good and helping to the students.

College Infrastructure
College infrastructure is fine with availability of proper classrooms, laboratories, library and sports facilities and equipments. Labs do not have the updated machines and some doesn't work. Hostel with mess facility is provided and a good WiFi connection is available.
Academics
Academics: Academics is good, i am studying civil engineering and faculty is supportive and always ready to help. There needs to be more extra curricular activities for personality development and to be job ready.
Placements
Placements are not available for all and only a few of students are placed. Average salary is between 25k to 35k. As there is shortage of companies as they don't prefer hilly areas and this a bit isolated.

College Infrastructure
Infrastructure is somewhat fine but lab facilities are not up to the mark. Labs do not have proper working and advanced equipments. This is the scene of most of the government institutions and all needs to be upgraded.
Academics
Academics is not to compete with real life challenges, it's only bookish language. There are not much extra curricular activities like personality development classes on a regular basis, that is necessary to be job ready.
Placements
There are not much placements as it is situated at higher altitude and companies don't prefer to come there. Still training and placement cell of our college are hard working and provided important updates on off campus placements.

No proper schedule of anything let it be exams schedule by UTU. No extra curricular activities at all neither sports nor technical, no room for personality development. If you want to do something good no approval no appreciation. That feeling of being in college is absolutely missing. You will feel imprisoned. Different entry timings for boys and girls as tiger is better biased to eat boys only. Girls are specially told not to do this. so better opt for some private clg instead of this government. Seriously this college needs a lot of improvement and need to change it's mentality.

College days are unforgettable and in fact those days are happy days of our life professors When ever I was wrong they corrected me. They used to be very friendly with us. We used to have competitions. No matter whether we win the competition or not, but they used to tell us participation is very important. They were very supportive and encouraged us in all things to grow up in our life's.college life is so beautiful, nobody can forget those days in their life's and those days will never be back again.

THDC Institute of hydro power engineering and technology is the first hydro power technical institute in Asia. It is the constituent institute of Uttarakhand TEchnical University. Located near the famous Tehri Dam, it has a beautiful and exceptional scenic beauty which makes living in the campus more enjoyable. The institute provides separate hostels for boys and girls with good infrastructure and facilities. The main attraction for enjoyment of students is the annual fest 'Escalade', although many other programs are conducted throughout the year. As for placements, a training and placement cell is established in the college, which has been working in this direction continuously. The institute conducts regular guest seminars/lectures, workshops and is working on national/international tie-up. The faculties are highly qualified and always willing to help the students in any field, including sports. Many people don't know about the college yet, due to its less advertisement. Even though the institute is newly established, it is way better than many other colleges, with its affordable fees making it one of the best college in Uttarakhand and the nation.

Tehri is a beautiful place with a lot of scenic beauty around, therefore same goes with this college. It is located in the scenic and serenity of Uttarakhand. The college was started in 2011 and thus do not have much legacy to talk about, though the faculty here in this college is good. There are helpful faculty members, non-teaching staff, seniors and peer group. This college is a government funded college and is therefore very affordable. There is a lot of scopes to take initiatives and induce new things in the college. There is adequate infrastructure, labs and class are equipped according to the needs of students. College life is good. One can enjoy the scenic beauty around, indulge in various cultural and sports activities.

The infrastructure of the college is very good with delightful views of never ending mountains . A separate team of faculties and students is formed for providing best industrial and vocational experience of the corporate sector. Some best of the faculties of Uttarakhand state and beloved friends. Four months prior to end semester exams of final year, a whole bunch of 35 companies came to college to provide jobs. Sports and gym facilities were provided by the college administration.

What started as a promising dream turned out to be a pathetic college due to utter mismanagement by the college administration. The college has absolute zero placement support and it makes sure that it creates all troubles for students wherever possible.

This college is only recommended if you are not able to make it to top NIT's. It is similar to KEC, GBPEC and COT Pantnagar. But top level people are not good at all and are trying their best to ruin the image of the college by accepting donations for admission

The college suffers because of the people at the top positions who do not want it to grow. They want a one man show in the college. But their desires are crushed by good students who have entered the college and taking it to new heights. It is a good place to be in.

The college is backed by the government of Uttarakhand. It offers B.Tech in 4 streams. the faculty is good but there is a problem with the top level management of the college who are just taking government salaries and funding their own projects . The atmosphere is student friendly.

The College is situated in the high mountains of tehri garhwal and is certainly among the one of the most beautiful engineering colleges. The infrastructure is state of art and facilities like library, computer labs, workshop etc. are all present. But bye problem is classes are not run properly in fact in some semesters classes are not run at all. The placement is almost nil from the college and they send some students for off campus placements or joint placement with other colleges.

The first thing which will grab your attention is the awesome location of the college. It is situated near the dam site of Tehri dam which makes it one of the beautiful campus in India. But there are problems with the classes as college often witnesses strikes from different unions operating in the campus. The placement is also very bad and hardly anyone gets campus placement.

THDC-IHET is a GEC(Government Engineering College) based in Uttarakhand. It offers real good faculty and laboratory facilities, especially for Mechanical Engineering. The college is near Tehri Dam which is often used as a practical training ground for budding engineers. The only problem is lack of leadership at the top level due to which the college is not accelerating at the required pace.

The college is backed by THDC India Ltd(Ministry of Power, Gov. of India) and UTU Dehradun. The facility is trained and labs are well equipped .However the college lacks dedicated top level management . The atmosphere is cordial and you meet great tech geeks.
