Worst Experience

Posted on 25 Mar' 18 by Ritika Deb
Batch of Jan. 1, 2018 | BE Electrical and Electronics Engineering
Hostel staffs in more no.of students in one room. Had to carry water from ground to the second floor. Poor washroom in college as well as the hostel. No food court in college. No proper arrangement and responsibility during floods. Worst hostel rules. Some staff take revenge in practical if you give poor feedback about them. The way of teaching is quite good. Lab record and observation handwritten is a total waste of time. No recharge shop is available in the hostel. Students suffer more due to writing permission to go to the medical room rather than their sickness. No freshers day. No cultural. In my final year, I still don't know my classmate's names, becoz they don't allow boy and girl interaction.

1)We did not enjoy college life here.No boys after which I realized that i dont know the name of half of my classmates. 2)Regarding teaching,all were obsessed with marks rather than learning.We studied more from course material rather than books.The worst part was writing Record and observation.Practical was more like theory. 3)No industrial visits.Hostel life sucked.We had to carry 10 lt pf can from the ground floor to 2nd floor and much more. Bad experience.

The staffs are good with good curriculum structure. the infrastructure is good with a lot of state of the art facilities like smart class and AC auditorium. The laboratory is generally without AC so its very difficult to work there. Also, The equipment is good and working well. The hostel is average and new facilities are introduced later. The overall experience was all ok not so good.

Good overall experience

Overall good atmosphere. The college provides all opportunities provided that you are ready to grab it. Management could be much better and efficient. Most of the staff is supportive except few. Placement is also good and most of the good companies visit college often. Only cons I see is its unnecessary rules. Although many of the rules are removed but their are still some frustrating rules and regulations.
