College Infrastructure
Our college has all necessary infrastructure, facilities and equipments. Our classroom are smart classroom some of our classroom are ai conditioner. Our university provide us WiFi connection which is totally free only we have to fill a form for that. Our university are always be neat and clean, greenries are over there in every faculty and also on roads of our university which looks very pretty.
Academics
I am here from nursery class now I m studying in engg clg. According to me this is the best University in teaching about academic. The teachers are give there best, they always wants that we understand what they taught us.
Placements
The placement of our college is good. But not too good. In this year I think the highest package is 7_8lkh p.a and this package gives to the computer engg student. Average salary is about 25000 p.m. Yes our college is supportive.
Value-for-money
My course fee is 25000 per year. And yes I feel that our money's worth. There are many labs in every field which is very helpful because only academic is not necessary practical field knowledge also worth.

College Infrastructure
The college is very big and spread out. All the faculties have different labs required by students for their work and practice which are well equipped with new technologies. The buildings are a little old but that doesn't really affect the students.
Academics
Teachers are quite knowledgeable and usually regular classes are held. Examination system is pretty good and doesn't put too much unnecessary pressure on the students. The courses are up to date with the UGC.
Placements
The placements of ZHCET are mediocre. Most of the students of core branches get good opportunities and get placed but a lot of major companies also don't come here for placements meaning students miss out on bigger placements.
Value-for-money
The fees for this college is extremely low(being a govt of India aided college). It costs around 15k per year only and additional 2-3k if you opt in for hostels.
Campus Life
Campus life is almost usually boring. There aren't that many fests and the ones that are held are pretty small scale. There aren't much fun activities for students. There are however sports facilities for students in other locations. The location is very safe and nice with a hospital nearby which provides to students first.
Anything Else
The college is pretty good considering its price and level of academics but doesn't have that great of an academic environment and a mediocre placement drive.

College Infrastructure
Yes, College has all necessary facilities and equipments. Aligarh Muslim University has largest library in Asia. College has fully equipped with WIFI. Even hostels has WIFI. Living places in College is well maintained and food quality is better other than any place. AMU has its own medical hospital where quality treatment is provided. Almost every Health check up is free for students and staffs. Doctor's are also very experienced and qualified.
Academics
I has completed M.tech in Electrical Engineering. I don't know about other courses but my course has old curriculum that needs to be updated. Also quality of teaching is average because mostly teacher's are busy in some other works and they didn't get enough time to teach well. From teaching point of view, this course does not make you job ready.
Placements
Placement of Zakir Husain college of engineering and technology especially Electrical Engineering is not so good. But All other courses in Aligarh Muslim University has good placement records. Well i actually didn't know percentage of students who got placed because there wasn't enough companies that come for recruitment.
Value-for-money
Well it has most economic fees structure among others college. M.tech has fees of 12,000 rupees per year that is economic. Also in M.TECH we got 13,000 per month of scholarship if you Qualify Gate Exam. Yes it will worth it because the quality of teaching is good enough to gain knowledge and we can go outside of college to pursue our dreams.
Campus Life
College Campus is extremely beautiful. People outside the city come to visit our College campus. It's best feature is that fees for every course is very less, people with poor economic background can be able to study here. All Campus is filled with greenery. Well i am not sure about teacher's but our seniors and alumini is always ready to help and support us. It's location is safe in my point of view. Yes it can handle emergencies.

Disclaimer : The views I share here are my own and have nothing to do with my employer or any other person involved. I am going to sum up the review across these domains: College Life - The review title pretty much sums it up. I have learnt a lot more in this period of my life than before. Infrastructure - It is at par with other colleges in India. But, it is getting better at a good rate. Faculty - Can't say much about the faculty. It is a mixed bag of good and bad. You have to yourself explore about your field otherwise you are doomed. Placements - Condition is bad compared to other colleges. Probably because of the geographical location.

When a close friend of mine asked me to write a review for our college, I felt 250 words are too few to describe our great institution. Studying at ZHCET is quite an experience. The most unique thing about our college is that we have maintained a perfect equilibrium between being modern and retaining our core values, or tehzeeb, as it is referred to in these circles. What really makes our college stand out is the fact we have a very strong network of alumni, who are still very much active, and contribute to the college in every possible way. We have a program called the Sir Syed Emerging Scholar Award, which provides financial aid and mentoring to the bright students of our college, who wish to study abroad. Teaching is of a high quality, and the syllabus is set according to the GATE syllabus, so that students don't have to look elsewhere for their preparation. Of late, there have been efforts to make the students familiar with the latest industrial trends, with several workshops on hot topics like Internet of Things and Big Data, organised over the last 4-5 months. There are a number of student clubs like SAE, Roboclub, ASCE, EDC and IEEE , which encourage technical and entrepreneurial activities. Professors over here highly encourage research activities, and enthusiastically guide students who show an interest in working under them. ZHCET has to be one of the most economical places of study in India, with an annual fee as small as 5k rupees, which include hostel accommodation. Students come from all over India, and there is a nice intermixing of cultures here. The only area where we lag behind is the placements, and there are plans to open a training and placement office in the NCR region, which will definitely boost the placement drive. Overall, ZHCET is a stellar institution, and as our rapid rise in our rankings show, we are a force to be reckoned with.

With additional services such as free health checkups etc, for all students.relaxing classes schedule, calm campus atmosphere. Well equipped laboratories, proper method of evaluation and weekly assessment.

Zakir Hussain College of Engineering and Technology is an institution under the governing body of Aligarh Muslim University. Th fee structure of the college is cheapest in India. The college provides quality education and has top notch faculty in the field of Engineering and Research. The environment and culture of college is best with communal peace and there is no hatred among the students regarding sect, religion,etc. Infrastructureof the college is of the 1940s but is still the best. We love our college and are a proud ZHCETian and a proud Alig.

My college provides lots of facilities with very fewer fees along with the scholarships for serious students i.e..that's the speciality of my college.Infrastructure is too good but for better industry exposure I think the internal quota that;s give a very big opportunity for internal students who don't deserve admission.College life can be more happening if VC allows dance in the campus.Dance is not allowed in our University.I expected some dance party along with good seminars/workshops in College's hostels.College Professors are very cooperative.My college is much affordable because the fees structure of my college is too low, even a poor person can do their whole engineering only in 40000 rupees along with scholarships (serious students).

My college having an excellent infrastructure that reminds me of the Mughal era monument. Students of my college are a good competitor that makes every possible hurdle which creates a very good healthy competition in us. My hostel is also very well known for its infrastructure as my college. Placement is good but still the candidates of our college might expect more. Candidates from our college deserve more because they are excel in their field.

I started my college life on 3 Aug 2015.Initially, college seems to be a weird place because of some rules and regulations that I never noticed anywhere but by the time I came to know about the tradition of AMU. The College in every aspect is a very good place with world class infrastructure facilities, excellent and experienced faculty, library facilities and most important the Tahzeeb and Adab at AMU. The College attract students from every corner of the world and manage a respectable and reputed status in India and across the globe. The Hostel facilities are excellent that you will not find anywhere in the world at such a low cost. Overall the university is good for engineering and other courses.

The College life is matchless, you'll get full freedom to do anything you want, be it study, sports or any other cultural activities, you name it. The Infrastructure is outstanding, even better than some IITs. The Mechanical workshop has more than 30 Lathe Machines which I believe is the most number of Lathe machines in a college in India. Every Laboratory is fully fledged. Most of the Faculties are PhD's from abroad and some from IITs, The Faculty to Student ratio is considerably higher. Out of the 19 Halls of residence in the university, 3 halls are allocated to Engineering students. These Halls are equipped with all types of facilities like WiFi, Reading rooms, Common Rooms, TV Rooms, Different types of Sports facilities etc. In addition to these, The University Sports Complex includes an Indoor Swimming Pool, 7-8 Tennis Courts, 1 Cricket Ground, 1 Football Ground, 2 Basketball Courts, Indoor Badminton Court, Gymnasium etc. The Central Library in the University is the Asia's 2nd largest Library. The Best thing in ZHCET, AMU is its fees, which I believe is the least among any colleges in India.

ZHCET is an amazing crossroad of life and technology. It has some of the best faculty members in the country and enjoys a massive alumni support. Under the tutelage of AMU, it inherits the unique tehzeeb and sherwani culture of the university, something that is unparalleled in the entire country. People come from all parts of the country (and abroad) and leave only as Aligs forever. Its often said that the students here learn not only about technology but also about culture and tradition, all of which forms the core of the very idea of the establishment of the university itself (which by the way is famously known to be the Cambridge of the East). The students interact with not only students from their own faculty but also from all other faculties too. Hence it is generally accepted that the Alig fraternity is 28k strong family. Coming to college placements, ZHCET usually boasts of 100% placements each year. However, a lot of the students choose to opt for M.tech, MBA, IAS,IES and other such courses for higher studies hence placements do not take a very central position in the issues list. All in all, this is one campus that not only prepares you for your career ahead but also for life. #yehmerachaman

Z.H.C.E.T. is one of the oldest institute of india founded in 1938 in one of the best university of India i.e. AMU. The college offers courses at the ug, pg and research level. The college infrastructure is old but well built and well maintained. Many big companies visits the placement cell of the college and recruit most students. College has a book bank and seminar libraries in each department and the university has asia's second largest library "Maulana Azad Library" with a capacity of about 8,000 students and the library's collection includes about 1,400,000 books, along with periodicals, pamphlets, manuscripts, paintings and photographs. Well now about the hostels; every student in the hostel has an access to internet and the whole campus is wifi enabled, every hostel has a reading room and a common room. The mess food is only the bad thing in the hostel. Well the best part among these is the fees which is around Rs. 30,000 for the whole 4 yrs including the hostel fees. So this college is a blessing to us and we are proud to be in this college
