The infrastructure is old , the labs are well equipped . classrooms are spacious . The entire campus is enabled with WiFi of jio but it's very slow. The living spaces and campus surroundings are very clean but sometimes streets dogs find roaming inside the campus or even classes. The college lacks in providing good sports facilities.
Academics
Teaching quality is awesome. Hbtu really have educated teachers who has nice teaching skills and also helps students when needed. The curriculum is updated regularly and includes all the recent developments in the field.
Placements
Placements are the best in our college . The highest salary packages is like 60 LPA. There are Great recruiters .And the college has a very wide alumni network. The average salary package for all branches is 8-9 LPA . The College is also very supportive .

Not new and sophisticated instruments but old and defected instruments are available. new instruments are available in small numbers. But the environment and li ing space is clean and good enough. Library is good.
Academics
I am studying civil engineering. Quality of teaching good enough. Some teachers are very good and some are average. I do think my curriculum is updated and includes all the recent developments in the field. Yes , of course what we study makes us job ready.
Placements
Placement in my branch is not very good. Highest package goes to computer science student. And also the placement percentage of same branch is higher. Placement process is of course very easy and pleasant

Infrastructure is not that good it is ok ok as the college is about 100 years old the buildings are maintained and the labs are being renovated with modern equipments and cleanliness is maintained in the campus but canteens are not good
Academics
Faculty members are well qualified either they are PhD holder or Mtech from renowned universities, curriculum is almost same as AKTU which focuses more on theory than practicals which is a major drawback in almost all indian educational institutions
Placements
Placement records are amazing here almost 90% students get placed and in technology branches it goes as high as 100 %average placement is around 6 lakhs per annum which is a good start for a fresh engineering graduate in India
Value-for-money
135000 is the fee one pay for one year (only academic)
Campus Life
University is situated in the centre of the city so one will never be Far from KFC mcD and malls

proper cleanliness is maintained in the campus buildings are almost now 100 years old hence proper maintenance is done labs are being renovated so that to make them at par to the modern technology whole campus is secured with cctv cameras
Academics
faculty are well qualified and are phd holders i am a student of plastic technology as it is something out of the league and only few universities across the country offer this course faculty is supportive
Placements
placement is the main factors which attracts people here as per records almost 90% students get placed and few technology branches like paint plastic placements go as high as 100% and the average package is around 6 lakhs
Value-for-money
fees is high as compared to few government collages but those collages stand no where in front of HBTU taking academic fees only it is around 135000 rs per annum and that can be waived with the help of state govt scholarships
Campus Life
campus life is good as proper cleanliness is maintained in the campus and whole campus is covered with cctv cameras teachers facuty is supportive seniors are also supportive and its a huge campus to roam

College Infrastructure
The infrastructure is one the main issues of this college. But we can see slowly improvement in the infrastructure. Specially the roads inside the campus been have improved in a good pace. The buildings are painted too.
Academics
Academics has improved from year 2019 because of recruitment of faculties from TEQUIP-III. These new teachers are disciplined, punctual in classes and have a good knowledge of their subject. Even sometimes they guide for competitive exams too.
Placements
This year the placement has improved too. But we didn't got much companies in civil engineering. But we got good improvement in the salary package. Some students even got it from companies like Google too.

our college have all the basic facilities and proper cleanliness is maintained in the campus and all labs are up to the mark but being 100 years old they need renovation which is ongoing in the college .
Academics
I am a student of plastic technology branch the quality of teaching is good but depends on the professors they are well qualified and most of them are PhD holders from well known collages but as government collage it depends on your caliber
Placements
placement is the main factor which influences the students and this collage do quite well in it taking cse branch the highest packages go around 60 lakh and 48 lakh in and out campus &technology branches have 100%placement
Value-for-money
it cost around 135000 rs per year excluding hostel and overheads and it is worthy to that being a developing university and good placement and also you can get state scholarships if you are unable to pay the fees
Campus Life
we have 2 fests in a year excluding the freshers one is cultural and tech fest and second one is sports fest and you will enjoy the fullest in it apart it you will get good supportive seniors to help you around

College Infrastructure
The colleges has all basic facilities available except the sports where no maintenance or any kind of heed is given. The hostels are comparatively good and well maintained. The main building has all the basic facilities available except WIFI which has been installed in hostels from this year onwards
Academics
The teachers are decent for first year which are mostly guest lecturers but the permanent faculties are highly qualified and experienced. The curriculum is not updated but the proffesors are industry oriented.
Placements
Placements are very good in HBTU , due to its large alumni base and high reputation as the best state government College in UP. Many recruiters come for placement for Plastic Technology like Reliance , ExxonMobil and some automobile companies give placement too.
Value-for-money
The fees for college is 1,35,000 , but scholarship is provided if you are eligible for it. Hostel fees is 63,000 per year. So the total comes around 2 lakh per year which is quite high for a government College but I feel it's worth the money.
Campus Life
The campus is not very happening and there are not many activities to take part in while in college. After the college gets over there's not much up to look to in the campus except those who play some sports. Not many clubs are present.

Academics
Faculty here is good, supportive and is well qualified maximum of them are PhD holders and the new recruits are generally from. iit's curriculum is almost similar to every other college in INDIA is based on theory rather than practicals
Placements
Placements is the major role which attracts the students almost 90 % students gets placed and few branches even have 100% placements maximum package CSE students get is around 60 lakhs off campus and 48 lakhs in campus
Value-for-money
Course costs around 1.35 lakhs excluding the hostel fees and it's is worth it either if you consider placements or the facilities provided by the college. And one can easily wave the fees with the help of state scholarship
Campus Life
Campus life here is good teachers and seniors are supportive except few but all other things are good campus is situated in the centre of the city hence you will never be Far from the top outlets like KFC mc d and malls

College Infrastructure
Being an almost 100 year old college it has buildings over 50 years old which due to their age requires constant maintenance. Infrastructure is old and dated, although it's constantly being updated every year to current standards. Average quality food and above average quality sanitation is maintained. Smart classes are being constantly updated.
Academics
Most faculty is on contract basis and lacks the skills and experience required to teach. On the other hand the permanent faculty has a lot of experience and are highly respected and reputed in their field. Classes are average and are mostly taken by guest faculty, mostly ends up doing it on our own.
Placements
Placements is where the institute shines. Being an old institute it carries a certain name which comes in handy during placements. It has a large alumni base which helps too. Packages are above average for the level, figures are detailed and are not inflated by the institute.

College Infrastructure
The college has almost all the latest academic related facilities. Classrooms are equiped with samsung smart boards which are completely in use. Laboratories have modern equipments. Library has sufficient amount of books and reading space. Sports facilities(courts and equipments) are not so well maintained.wifi facility is available all over the campus and hostels. Hostels are old and are not in good condition,they have poor maintainence.
Academics
I am studying Bio-chemical engineering,its a unique and new stream which is taught only in few colleges all over india. I am studying it due to its future scope and importance in various fields(mainly in research). Quality of teaching is fine but as always no matter how good is quality of teaching students have to study by themselves. Curriculum is regularly updated and includes all the recent developments in the field and equipments which completely makes us eligible and ready for a job.
Placements
Placement record of this college has been outstanding from a very long time. Since its a very old college completing its 100 years it has a broad network of alumni which makes placement easier. Almost 85% students who sit for placements are placed.This year highest package offered was of 60 lakhs by google to a CS student. Average salary offered is around 5.30 lakhs. College is very supportive in matter of placements.
Value-for-money
In 1st year it costs 1,35,000Rs. But the fees increases as we promote to further years. I don't feel i am getting the worth of my money,there are still lack of many facilities and proper and latest infrastructure for meeting various needs of the students. Level of maintenance is also poor. I think for the amount of money we pay, we should get proper facilities and infrastructure.
Campus Life
College campus is good.since no.Of students is less therefore its peaceful and everybody is able to interact with almost everyone Which is the best thing. The complete campus is divided in to two parts which makes the main college campus a little small which is i think the worst thing. There are various activities both academic and extracurricular are conducted in college in which student can participate to improve its skill. The location of college is good, it is situated in the mid of city.
Anything Else
Overall the experience is good. No college is perfect, Every college has some problems and defects but the main experience and satisfaction is build by the people around you and by the vibe of college And this college has a very good vibe and respect. But being practical at the end placement is also important and as i told placement record of hbtu is very good. So i think this clears all.and one more fact i would like to tell that hbtu is the mother of iit kanpur so it has its own reputaion.

overall the college infrastructure is good ,we are provided with all the basic amenities which are needed like proper cleanliness , WiFi and other things which a student needs ,classrooms are now being equiped with smartboards.
Academics
HBTU is among the oldest college in the country so teaches here are well qualified maximum of them are PhD holders and they are supportive to a good extent they will guide you properly but few of them are not as good as they will seem.
Placements
placements are very good this is most important factor of this university with almost 90% placement and in few branches it goes as high as 100% with good packages comparing to which a engineering graduate gets CSE branch highest last year was 60 and 48 lakhs
Value-for-money
fees is around 1.35 lakhs per year excluding hostel and mess fees which will cost you about 60000 more . If you are not from a good background you can apply for state government scholarship which will help you wipe out the academic fee
Anything Else
campus life depends on what kind of people you will meet and your friends you will enjoy being here it is a huge campus to roam around but i can bet if you will join here majority of your time will be spent in college canteens and outside auditorium.

The placements of cs it and et branch are average and if you want a decent placement on a company then my friend you must work on coding and software part. The avg placement is about 6-7 lpa and highest varies.This year we secured a package of 30lpa...last year Shubham sir secured a package of 37 lpa in Microsoft. Placement is good in paint and oil technology rest are average.
Value-for-money
Good college and good atmosphere.i agree that it is not any IIT or nit but my friend you will never regret infront of anybody to tell your college that you are a student of hbtu.the college has completed its 100 years and has a very good fame in education feild.

College Infrastructure
Neither good nor bad.labs are ok,cafeteria very bad, library ok, classrooms ok, auditorium very small,very few people can accomodate,main building is nice but some renewation needed,some branches have combined classes that should be separate
Academics
Academics is fine, some teachers are very good you will understand Everything but some are moderate,you cannot depend on teacher only,you have to study also,marking in exams is tough,many Students got back in many subjects some get year back to
Placements
Best thing about college is placement,it is better then many nit and iiit highest package 43 lacs in Amazon, placement in non core branches is fine specially in paint and plastic technology,cs has approximately 100% placement
Value-for-money
Fees increasing every year but zero value of money,10% fres is increased every year,hostel and news feed is very high but give very bad food at mess, sometimes the sweet dish are finished if you go late in mess,the mess workers keep for themselve
Campus Life
Zero campus life,two campus East campus and West campus both are not good, there is nothing in the campus you can enjoy just sit in the hostel or play in the group which also not maintained, there is nothing in the comous to see
Anything Else
Only placement is fine.No campus life,very old infrastructure and very bad, academics is fine,many students get good rank in gate and IES,if you only want placement then you can join but if you want campus life then it is not for you

College Infrastructure
The infrastructure being old is quite poor and the washrooms are not well maintained.Presently they follow smart class system by using digital board. Their is garbage split everywhere around college with no dustbins. The facilities and Equipments are also not well maintained
Academics
The teachers are experienced and have enough knowledge about their subjects. But some of the Facilities don't know the way to taught the students. Their is enough politics among teachers regarding students. The curriculum is updated and studies are conducted in proper sincere manner
Placements
The placements of 3-4 CSE students is very good but rrest on an average the placements are ok. They offer 100% Placements to Paint tech Students. But the average package is not too good among the Students
Value-for-money
The fees for first year students is 1,25,000 and it is worth taken.. The fees is not high and not too low.
Campus Life
Overall the college is full of experiences and passion among students is long lasting. Due to the students confident nature the expectations from the college is very high in terms of fests or other Events held by the college. The location of the college is safe. It may handle emergencies too. Students can engage in extra curricular activities a lot and due to enough time after the college students can prepare for other examinations very easily
Anything Else
Overall the college is good and the experience is above expectations till now. In terms of money like in fests and other Events don't expect anything from college.. It is a good experiencing college only because of Students

College Infrastructure
Infrastructure has been always a weak point for HBTU. Recently we have seen some positive changes like installation of smart boards in classroom and WiFi and it's improving day by day. Still some improvements are required to make it a better infrastructure.
Academics
I am a first year B.Tech. student of Plastic Technology which is a branch of school of chemical technology. The quality of teaching is good here. The syllabus is updated and similar to AKTU formerly known as UPTU.
Placements
The placement scenario in Hbtu is good. It's outstanding in branches like CSE and chemical engineering. Paint, plastic, oil and information technology have also very good placement. Overall we can say that placement in hbtu is quite good.
Value-for-money
It's Rs 135000 per year. It is the new fee system applied from 2019 with the condition of 10% increase in fee every year.
Campus Life
Campus life in hbtu is amazing. You will surely love the environment here.

College Infrastructure
Our college have all necessary things, infrastructure, facilities and equipments. But except one thing - a gym for 1st year students. We don't have WiFi. Living spaces are very clean and hygienic. Food is good in 1st year. Hostels have very old infrastructure, which is worst part of this college.
Academics
Academics are good. Quality of teaching is moderate. Yes absolutely it makes us job ready . But you have develope some skills for your placement. It gives you an edge in interview . Keep learning is art of living.
Placements
Quality of placements are moderate. Every branch have their own percentage of placements. Highest salary was offered in computer science and engineering which was 60 lakh per annum. Average salary offered was around 8.5 lakh per annum. Which is quite good than some NITs.
Value-for-money
It costs 1.35 lakh per annum.
Campus Life
Campus life is outstanding because you will get so much time to have fun and you can learn anything what you can. Location is fine. It is very safe.

College Infrastructure
The college has average to substandard laboratories and other facilities. The classrooms are now equipped with electronic boards. The campus has wifi powered by jio obviously slow. The campus is clean on the outside but dogs can be seen roaming inside even the classrooms.
Academics
You will need to study everything on your own atleast in the first year. The teacher will explain you anything to you if you approach them but the classes are not very helpful. The facilities are guest faculty for first year students.
Placements
If you maintain a decent score and complete your internship properly you have a fairly high chance to get placed. The placements are higher for computer science, chemical engineering, and mechanical engineering, and paint technology.
Value-for-money
The course cost 1,35,000 rupees in the first year and the fee increases 10% every year. The college is not exactly worth the money but it is not as bad as people say it is. However if you get any of the core branches in this college you should go for it.
Campus Life
All the sports activities are limited to hosteilers because they commence during the late hours. The doctor is only available for two hours a day so for any medical emergency you would need to visit a hospital.

Our college infrastructure is quite old and less maintained as its one of the oldest engineering college in the country. Our classrooms are now having smart boards and wifi but somehow we lack in our sports facility
Academics
Our academics is good , being in first year I am not the right person to answer this but faculty here is highly educated but quality of teaching and behavior changes from teacher to teacher and some of them are really helpful and kind
Placements
College placement depends on branch to branch most and highest placement goes from CS as other colleges but then we can see the dominance of non core branches like paint technology and plastic technology
Value-for-money
You won't realise that it's a government college when you will see it's fees , HBTU charges 1,35,000/- this year this fees may further rise in upcoming years and hostel fees of 65,000 /- it's really high and nearly equal to those of private college
Campus Life
We have a really poor campus life. You won't spot ant one after 5 , we have two campus , east campus comprises of 1 year boys hostel , girls hostel of every year and educational structures were as 2nd,3rd and final year hostels are in West campus

Building purani hai lekin achhi hai, Kafi maza aata hai. The infrastructure and the building design totally explains that building is hundred year old.Apart from the structure, hygiene is also commendable.
Academics
Teaching quality is awesome with experienced teachers. Concepts are taught in a good manner with no hurry.Due to good quality education , placements are higher which is one of the great proof. In nutshell HBTU provide good education.
Placements
Placements are best as compared to other colleges. Actually HBTU is known for its good placements . Computer Science placements are between 48 lakhs per annum to 60 lakhs per annum. Average for all branches is 7 to 8 lakh per annum
Value-for-money
Course cost is little bit higher, but it Worth's.

In this aspect the college might seem to you not that value for money as the fees is high for first year it is almost 1lakh 40 thousand excluding hostel fee which you might find high compared to other colleges
Campus Life
You will very well enjoy the campus life being at this college with supportive and friendly seniors and also as the campus is situated in the centre of the city which means you will always be surrounded by malls theaters and many food outlets to hangout.

College Infrastructure
Despite college’s reputation and history, it’s infrastructure is nothing compared to that of any other college in India. Wifi is available. Labs are accessible, classroom are fine. Library is resourceful but cannot be accessed for 24 Hrs. If you are a real sportsperson then you are really gonna get disappointed since the sports facilities are not that good. Canteen needs some maintenance.
Academics
The college offers various courses but the syllabus being the same not updated one. Course and exam structure is well maintained. Labs and workshop are quite accessible. Also many internship opportunities are available for the students.
Placements
HBTU is one of the oldest and finest college of India which has its own dignity and privilege. It has a very strong Alumni network. Placement are pretty good and vary for branch to branch. There are a few great recruiters along with the good ones.

College Infrastructure
Infrastructure of this old renowned institution dated back to 1921 when it was started, is still maintained by the authorities. Not so out of the box infra to expect, but the college has labs of NBA accredited level, smart boards are newly installed in every classrooms, gym and other sports arena in the hostels and West campus of the university. Library has sufficient books, Wifi in campus area but with restrictions. Enough of greenery to expect .
Academics
I am an undergraduate in Chemical Technology specialisation Paint here in HBTU. This course deals with the coatings, and advanced development of paints in both core and other automobile industries. It's the only University to offer the course in India apart from one other college. Due to limited course, the quality of teaching here is good with all qualified proffesors . The curriculum of all the branches here is well designed and structured in competence with the current industry.
Placements
Placements have been increasing rigoursly in the past few years. Computer science and Paint Technology students here are 100% placed. Average package ranges from 6-8 lacs of overall branches. Talking about CS , avg. Goes to 11 lacs and above . Since , the college has a wide alumni network both in India and abroad , students find it easy to approach in placement cells and internships.
Value-for-money
Pretty much the fees in all government colleges for B.tech is near and around the same. Overall 4 years can take a lumpsum of 8 lacs here. Though the amount of money taken, infra and sports facilities need to be improved, but the wide alumni network you get of HBTI and one of the top engineering institutions in UP after IITs, NITs , it's pretty decent to enroll into.
Campus Life
The college is placed inside the Agricultural Institute (CSA) in a good region of Kanpur surrounded by various leisure locations. Since day scholars also constitute most part of this college, you can also opt for motorcycles etc in clg for hostellers for daily commute. Life on campus is pretty happening with various cultural, technical and sports fest every year. Various clubs are there as of dramatics, aeroclub ( for aerospace and stuff) quizzing club ( Q frat), dance ,debate etc.
Anything Else
Overall the college is good to take admission if you want a good college in UP near to home, and a good alumni network to grow yourself more . The academic gradings are absolute to provide rigorous competition among students and campus life is good. Still a freshie here in H BTU, i have a lot to take count on and make my best 4 years of life a memorable one.

College Infrastructure
The infrastructure is comparatively older and not suitable for modern education. Old equipments for lab and overall dusty workshops is just not beneficial for the education of students. Smart classes are not conducted.
Academics
Academics are full time concentrated and students strive to achieve perfection in studies because attendace requirement is 75% for all students and it goes as low as 60% if there is a valid medical certificate for those in need.
Placements
Placements are very well suited to the capabilities of a students. Not every branch gets nice placements but at the end it's what we want to do in future, i.e. pursue masters or look for a job either through on campus or off campus placements.
Value-for-money
The infrastructure and the extra curricular activities are not given much importance.
Campus Life
Campus life is pretty good and meeting new people just makes it even more interesting.
Anything Else
Overall the college is nice and at the end it's what you make of it. Ample of free time and motivation will get you to the top.

College Infrastructure
Yes in my college all the necessary infrastructure facilities and equipments.the facilities in workshop and laborities are safety tools and etc and now there is smart classes will started and in every class there is a smart board.
Academics
The quality of teaching is very good. Teacher tells us many new type of things or new inventions and related to our branch. Such as my branch is plastic technology then we all know about the placements and companies regarding plastic product companies.
Placements
The quality of placement is very high and good. The maximum percentage of students were placed in many companies.the highest salary package in computer science and engineering is about 40 lakkhs. And there is placement in chemical engineering stream. Average salary package will be about to 5-6 lakh per annum.
Value-for-money
Now money is very high.one lakh thirty five thousand per year.yes my money is worth because of we all know about the maintance ofcollege and other facilities.
Campus Life
The college campus is good not very bad. As wee see the earlier situation of the college it is bad campus but now it becomes better.they can handle emergencies in every situation.

College Infrastructure
College is good on basic infrastructure. Although it requires constant repairs and maintenance (main building and academic section is more than 50 years old) some classes are equipped with smart boards and all. There's free WiFi for students with a daily cap of 1 gigs. Hostels are old but we'll maintained.
Academics
Academics is okay. Most teachers are now guest faculties or temporary through world bank funding (cost saving measure due to cuts in funding) curriculum is updated and made for industry (but not quite up to the mark yet)
Placements
College holds a good reputation among corporations. Being an old institute it has a huge alumni base which are well connected and help out the institute and it's students in placements. Mostly good and elite companies visit campus and provide an above average compensation for Engineering.
Value-for-money
It's outstanding in its value for money. College fee is less than other colleges of same league and institute name and reputation goes a long way. It's a well known and reputed institute with a long standing history.
Campus Life
Campus life is quite active during college hours but nothing much to say after that. Most clubs and committees are student run with least or none investment from faculties and/or institution. There are few clubs under college that are run by both students and faculty members.
Anything Else
I would recommend to have this as your safe school or as your primary. You wouldn't regret it either way.

College Infrastructure
Our college is on the verge of completing 100 years of serving the world hence the infrastructure is old but is maintained timely so no issues are there, as a part of swachh bharat mission cleanliness is maintained in the whole university. The only place where you will feel disappointed is the in campus canteen but the are improving it. And also due to the location of the university in the centre of the city You will never be far from the most of the deemed restaurant and outlets from McD to KFC
Academics
Quality of teaching is similar to any other government colleges either you go to an IIT or NIT nothing changes it totally depends on your capabilities. College got a huge multi story library to sit back and learn with tones of books
Placements
Placements are quite good you can get the exact values on the official site. Almost 90% students get placed with good packages. The highest package that a student got last year was 60 lakhs in Microsoft.
Value-for-money
135000/- per annum is the fees for Btech. You may find it a little higher compared to other govt. Colleges.
Campus Life
Overall campus life is good. But the fests are not that good, as officials don't provide much funds.

College Infrastructure
College infrastructure is quite low because there r old buildings and roads r quite dirty and the sometimes we can se shed over the road, the college provides short roads which get filled with water during rain.
Academics
I am studying btech electronic engineering becayse i was interested in it nd i have no option rather than to join the college because of low fees. No the study provided ove r here is poor faculty members do not provide support.
Placements
Placement r good but not that much which you compare from iits nd nits. The placement r good at some fields but they r bad at some too, average placement can be set as 4-5 lakhs depending upon the field whch u r studying
Value-for-money
Yes due to less fees compared to other colleges the value is better but then faculty do not provide what a student maybe needing . So a lot of money is wasted liek no wifi available here but its money is taken so it is only one bad point
Campus Life
Campus has all the things but due to strictp policies sometimes it becomes boring, although the faculty knows very well to entertain students my life is going very well because the location of campus and support of other faculty members is good so i am enjoying it
Anything Else
HBTU is a good college if u are seeking at low budhet but yess it has some bad points too but overall it can be said as a college for gaining experience nd having a better college lifestyle with a healthy environment present over there.. 🙃

College Infrastructure
The age old institute has old infrastructure , facilities and equipment but the faculties are very experienced and highly qualified .Classrooms are equipped with smart boards and there is a huge library . The hostels are relatively clean and the food is hygienic .
Academics
Electrical engineering is a core engineering branch . And since it is one of the earliest departments established in HBTU so it has some of well known faculties. The institute is famous mainly for the non-core technology branches which sets is apart from other colleges at par .
Placements
The placements are upto the mark and a high percentage of students are placed from non - core tech branches in the institute .The placements from computer science branch is good and relatively a higher percentage of students are placed .
Value-for-money
The total cost per year is about 1.35 lakh approximately . Given the college's strong alumni network I think the institute is worth the money. Being a goverment college there are many options for various kinds of scholarship for the education .
Campus Life
Campus Life be it any college is always great as it is created by friends. The hostel Life is fun and the greenery of the campus makes it very enjoyable .Simply strolling through the campus is leisure .
Anything Else
Overall the institute is nice . Every institute has some pros and cons and this institute is no exception . The college was started way back in 1921 and since then the infrastructure has not been refurbished which is something the government need to do something about .But other than that the place is good .
