The college is a really big(in terms of size) and the facilities provided by the college are not bad either. The college is located in outskirts of Gurgaon which makes it a close-to-nature atmosphere.Our college is providing an exposure by collaborating with IBM. College atmosphere is quite good where you'll find good friends who'll help you in long run.

The infrastructure of the college is beautiful. It gives us a feel of a British university. Corporate exposure is just nil I would say. No proper industrial exposure. The crowd is very poor as most of the crowd is from near by local villages. The college is situated in Sohna a village in the interior of Haryana. So,the college life is disastrous. The hostel is the best part of the university as it gives you an experience of a 5-star hotel but the hostel fee is more than course fee. Lastly, the faculty is very good and the teaching quality is also manageable. So,I will rate this college below average.

The infrastructure of our university is very good. Build in the laps of beautiful hills of Sohna. Well maintained classrooms, airy amphitheatre. College life here in this university is heaven. Faculty team if the university is the best. Teachers not only teaches but understands you. Well, maintained hostel rooms make us feel more comfortable. Libraries in the university have stock of thousands of book of every field weather it is engineering, law or hospitality etc. . For engineering students, well-equipment labs are there. For law students moot court is organised every year. And for hospitality, around 15 kitchens are there for students practice. Our annual fest is one of the best things to attending also. Overall good university. Come explore here, be a Goenkan. GD Goenka university from foundation to flight.

They Don't just show off but they really have that thing always take a initiative for doing best to the students , providing them funds for there projects , industrial visit in every semester , international workshops, guest lectures by professionals, signing mou's with different organisations to have different facilities , fully air conditioned , good quality of machines in labs , practical approach to learning, faculties from top most institutes and iit's every thing is excellent but lack of only sports activities and people are never free there. A every good place for career building as it offers education in different fields.

How is the study of Agriculture and whats about his placement ? Any one please solve my Doubt about G D Goenka University.

Tech. India Student Expert 31st Jul, 2019

As a general rule for placements, a lot more will depend upon your own hard work, communication & presentation skills and overall preparation. This would be true for any university you enroll in.

So,  provides a good platform for placements for all streams and programs. a separate dept which looks after placement opportunities. Apart from that, each school has its own placement coordinator who is responsible and actively works for not only calling companies to the campus, but also for preparing students for placements by giving them proper training. The same goes to Agriculture school also.

How is GD goenka university in terms of placement and teaching?

varun rathore Student Expert 26th Jun, 2019

Hello Shaan, 

I have gone through some articles and now i can say that it's a bad college. The college is made just to print money and fool students. The faculties are really bad and the placement are close to zero. The students in this college are only those who had done really poor in their exams. So i would suggest you not to join this college.

I hope you will find my answer helpful. 

All the best.
