College Infrastructure
The Infrastructure college is my good. Though we do not have sufficient amount of hostels. yet the accommodation is good. The class buildings and classrooms are well maintained. So over all infrastructure is very good
Academics
Our college is the second most old college in India and has a rich heritage in terms of academics. But some times some teachers get hasty in finishing the syllabus rater "teaching" us. But I think that happens in every college I assume. Very few subjects follow stone age syllabus. All the departments are up to dated.
Placements

You also have chances in MNIT Jaipur.

For example,
