College Infrastructure
The infrastructure is good and the atmosphere is very flexible for studies. We have WiFi facilities in the campus especially in the south campus of AU. The only drawback there is still they are implementing convensional method of teaching.
Academics
I have studied masters in pharmacy which is a noble profession. As of my knowledge the Curriculum is not updated and the quality of teaching is also average. It can be improved by implementing modern methods of teaching including micro teaching.
Placements
The placement history is negligible here. But the faculty will help in finding the job of our interest, they are very supportive. During my study period with the help of alumni we have arranged a campus drive morethan 40% of the strength have been placed out of 360 candidates from vizag.
Value-for-money
I have completed my course of masters with the minimum fee i.e., only 20000 per sem where as in other institutions the fee is upto 75000 per sem. That too they provide admissions through national eligibility exams like GATE and GPAT through which students will get a stipend of 12400 monthly( as of 2018)
Campus Life
More than education the person will get the social responsibility, communication, self leaning here.

Au college is very big college. Faculty are highly qualified . Campus placements are average. Students should be parallel to the faculty so that they can easily understand the topics. There is hostel facility. Hostel food is average . We can enjoy the most .We will know what life is .

There is lots of freedom. One has a lot of time at hand to discover new areas of interest. But no spoon feeding. Right from academics to sports and other activities are more of self interest with little or no involvement from the faculty. Those who work will shine those who complain will find it miserable here

One of the major setbacks of this college is regarding placements.In today's world, it is known that getting a job is very difficult, that to it is even more difficult if we try offline.So we all depend mostly on campus recruitment placements.I think the college must ponder upon this matter and try for more placement companies.

At first college life was boring and uninteresting but slowly it got interesting with seniors and parties and a lot of enjoyment.But the drawback of the college is it lacks in exposure,and the kind of educational system is very old and does not sync with the today's fast growing latest technology

Au gave me the space to think about my life in a proper way, faculty and infrastructure are okay, the college is too big, it's a beautiful place for students who prefer self-study, in a year the college will be closed for 3 to 4 months . The hostel environment is good ,though the hostels look bad. I can say one can get a good exposure about life . Regarding studies, I can't guarantee you that how much you can learn with the help of people around you.

Affordability is the only positive thing to rejoice here in andhra university.Besides that nothing is there, the students here are either too bright or too dull,exposure to practical applications is minimal. The campus lacks in proper infrastructure ,management,planning and in various crucial aspects that a worthy college must have.

Except for affordability my college is behind in every other aspect. Bad infrastructure , a dearth of placements , poor faculty ,etc are the main drawbacks of this college.Hostel facility is even worse with a lack of hygiene living.I think the college must first of all try to provide good infrastructure and then must march to fill up other loopholes

Good college with nice curriculum and enough infrastructure with nice hostel facility but one thing is to be kept in mind that for our course we have very nice faculty who fight in between themseles. Playing with is and the junior faculty are so good at torturing than teaching .... But interaction with seniors and college participation in other student events is good

My college is the oldest government college in the state and does boast of its superiority. But that was all passé. Now the college does not have a sufficient number of teaching staff. The professor-student ratio is low. Laboratory equipment is old and is in poor condition. Because of which pursuing research is next to impossible. Library does not have a sufficient number of technical books and magazines. It is not open at all times. No proper wi-fi in the campus. The student does not have access to technical journals and their websites. The food and the facilities available in the hostel is a mess. Student council does exist to run the hostel but they do not have the authority to bring the necessary changes without approval from higher authorities, who would never accept such changes in the name lack of funds. No significant placements in recent years apart from few software companies. Bad placement record from the past 4 years is a clear indication of this. Only once in my 4 years of college life was a cultural event organised and that was a disaster. National level technical events do happen but notable people never attend them. College fee is low and is highly affordable to all classes of the society. College accepts students on a reservation quota basis and so all sections and classes of people have good chances of securing a seat in the college. This makes the college highly diversified.

The campus has very good infrastructure but the buildings are quiet old. The best part is the faculty, they are very friendly are their teaching is very good. Talking about the placements, there are very few core companies that come for the placements and most of the companies that come are mostly related to it.

I'm currently pursuing 3rd year here. Placements are the added benefits here.one can get best college life experience. most of the working days are holidays in the last year due to strikes and rallies, In those times, we have to cover syllabus ourselves. Infrastructure is good.Ragging will be there generally but not so serious. even I've got ragged by my seniors in my 1st year.

In our college, we have all kinds of sports facilities and also, we have a lot of freedom of doing what we want. Faculty are also good but not up to the mark as they hardly attend the classes. Infrastructure is moderate. The administration is really pathetic. Placements are excellent.

For people in Andhra Pradesh, it is good opportunity to study in Andhra university it is having good facilities. All the faculty are the Ph.D candidate with experience in the subject. People from other countries also come to the university for Ph.D. programme. As it has two campuses called south and north located in 1800 acre's near RK beach. It's really a wonderful pleasure to me to study there.

This college is a proper engineering college. You will get everything that is needed in a good engineering college at this place. The college infrastructure is really good, all the labs, class rooms, equipments have been up to the mark. The college life was really fun, with really good extra curricular activities, academic as well as non academic. The college placements were good and the teaching faculty was one of the best. The industry exposure however could have been better and the college hostel needed improvement.

College life will be okay,worst placement record for dual degree course students when compared to regular b.tech's..worst administration system,infrastructure..hostels are too worse with very less space for anyone to stay..labs,restrooms etc maintenance is way bad..talented faculty,but won't come regularly to teach except very few.. Despite all the negatives,certification is the best..
