College Infrastructure
The college provides all the facilities to their students, this is well known college having a great infrastructure and equipments. The professors are great at their subjects. The hostels are very spacious with very hygienic food and clean rooms.
Academics
The teachers are very knowledgeable, they provide all the stuff to their students. The faculty is experienced. The practical knowledge which is given by the professors to their students makes them job ready.
Placements
The placements are according to the course in which student has enrolled. The highest salary package offered was 10 lakh P.A. in the agricultural field. The avg. Salary offered is 6 lakh P.A., the college manages all the things at high level with all the ease.
Value-for-money
My course costs 1,20000 per year. It depends upon how much I'll earn by the job. It would be worth if I'll get my job according to my expectations and a handsome salary too, then only it would be worth.
Campus Life
The campus life at SHUATS is kinda good, I would say it's the best life at the campus. The activities have a very big list, many kinds of sports, quizzes etc held there. The teachers were always enrolled in the activities with students, with safe location (only in the campus).
Anything Else
The college provides all the stuff and a great campus life at which students can live with joy. The exams conducted have quality questions and the practical knowledge is gives to their students which helps them to maintain their goal.

College Infrastructure
The laboratories of the college are well-equipped with all the required types of equipment, the library is the finest place to spend time at, with a vivid collection of books and study materials. The hostel rooms are big enough to prevent the feeling of suffocation with sanitation concern up to the mark and the food of the mess is just satisfactory, turning us nostalgic with every bite, with the imagination of mom's hand-cooked food.
Academics
The academics is very good the very well-crafted curriculum. The practicals are well performed by the highly qualified professionals with fully-updated syllabus. But there are lack in extra curricular activities which makes the life a bit tedious and boring.
Placements
The placement cell functions very actively, with the process of linking the college with some of the reputed companies of the country. I am a FN (Foreign National), so I returned back to my home country - Nepal and got to work at the country's no.1 dairy brand (DDC) with the annual package NRs. 8 lakhs. The reason behind getting an opportunity to work at top-notch company is the academics of the college.
Value-for-money
I got admitted to my college through an Indian Embassy Scholarship Scheme name ICCR that allows me to full-academic fee waiver with stipend, so I cannot comment regarding the value-for-money as this is blessing to study with full scholarship. But based on my peers opinion, the college do offer value for money with the annual fee of IRs. 5 lakhs including the hostel and mess facilities.
Campus Life
The campus life was really amazing, that has created many moments in the gallery of memories. The teachers are very supportive providing help at any moment, the students are very co-operative and are of friendly nature where as the staffs are very generous. The location is safe away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

The beauty of the college is that it is situated on the bank of Yamuna river and the campus us full of greenery. We have the best infrastructure in our college but the classes are not frequently conducted. The campus life is the best. Student crowd is amazing.

Shiats is one of the oldest agriculture college in India, you can find the best infrastructure and experienced faculty over here. The main strength lies in the diversity of students from across India and around the world. The faculty is quite friendly and supportive. Alumni is the backbone of our university working around the world

Faculties are good and have long teaching experiences but the institute lacks facilities of practical conduct either due to equipment's malfunction or absence. As compared to the fee structure, the infrastructure didn't met the standards. Sad to describe, at present scenario there are only few or no campus placements.

SHiats has a very prestigeous part in our life. it gives us a way that who we can study going beyond the concept. Campus life in SHIATS is very expensive. fee structure of cource like engineering is very high bus the campus overview brings the intrect of students towards study here at any cost.

The infrastructural development of the college is good. More companies should be called to do the industrial exposure of the students. The college life inside the campus is enjoyable due to no of students from all over the corners of India. The placement of the college is good at graduation level.

Higher education has never been more accessible, and there have never been more options for every type of budget, learning style, and goal. Having so many options is great, with one caveat.The infrastructure of the college is very developed. The campus surroundings are quiet and healthy which is helpful for studies. There are some departments under development to accommodate a large number of students. The classrooms are well constructed, air conditioned and have a space for about 150 students. It has well-organized library with easy book search and reading facility. The college has an excellent hostel and sports facility. Placements are sure for students with average standard especially Mechanical, Computer Science, Electrical, Meteorology, Mining, Ceramic has high placement options. The faculty here is good and supportive, teachings are done with modern methods like power point presentation and practical views experimentation.

When it comes to faculty, friends and the environment that surrounds you it's good but when it comes to the literal meaning of college that is college giving career opportunities for growth of students it's not at all good. The exposure that a student should get for his/her career is not satisfactory. Placement is NIL

Infra could have been a bit better. Industry exposure should me maximized. More companies should be invited in for final placements and there should also be a student body taking care of the placement process. The college is affordable but join the quality of education is not appropriate.

As per ex-student of SHIATS & completing my graduation in the field of biotech, it gives me an opportunity to express my ideas in the technical field and grab different opportunities. My first day in college feels like heaven. Excellent faculty members with no. of facilities and good hostel life are very important to point of enjoyable college life. SHIATS also conduct its first college fest INNOVATATION-2015 which is a good platform for us. but when we come to placement prospect I personally feel that the administration has to do a lot of work in this area. Companies which came for placement gives low package about 20000 which is not acceptable for biotech students especially for b.tech students.

I had a great experience with friends. College placement was zero but still I am working at Infosys got off campus placement. If u don't want to take a gap in the academic year then you can join this college but don't expect placement from this college.

College campus is big but its infrastructure is not so good, not so much trained teachers are there. Teachers come and go by only giving. Notes Few local companies come and college also doesn't take responsibility for campus selection. Whatever you have to do is do with ur own.

First institute in India which started a degree of agricultural engineering. The campus situated outside of the city. Infrastructure is okay but campus is green. Well equipped labs and a big central library. Naini bridge for hangout and amazing sunset view. Placement is average. Industry exposure is quite good.

It is a nice college. But the management of the college is not very good. There should be better facilities for student in accordance with the infrastructure. The faculties are not very well educated. Partiality is done on the basis of religion. Christianity is promoted in one or the other way.
