Think twice before joining

My college experience was average. faculty is fine, classes are taken with ppts and notes. college is more money oriented. though the infrastructure is very good, campus is equipped with free wifi and air conditioned classes. being a north indian i faced partiality at every thing, from academics to extra curricular activities, south indian are given more preference . hostel facility is average too, hostel is strict but food is horrible. college fees is feasible compared to other private colleges in chennai.

I haven't been to such an institution in my life this is not a good institution for the growth and development of students it's for the growth and development of the management . This institution is running completely on money rules here, faculties in this institution are the worst eligible people to teach the students, infrastructure is just fine , no one shares correct information the people in the institution is always changing what they said

This university has a good reputation for Courses like Marine Engineering, Pharma, Visual communication and other science and humanity Degrees...An MBA degree from this university is very much valuable....But engineering course in this college is relatively new and also lacks the necessary facilities and faculties...You don't expect a Non Engineering degree holder, Recently passed out faculty to take class for you and also punish you for silly reasons in the first year...In short, It will take time for engineering in this college to grow....About the fellow students, Some are decent and good, Most behaves like rogues and rowdies and also there are many students from some unknown villages, Who expect that we adapt to their culture and bow down to them....Mind you, If you are a Hindu speaking guy, There is no problem because There are many North Indians here as well as some locals who know Hindi well...Overall it's an average college for engineering....

This college is good for arts and science and also for MBA. but for engineering, it is not good. the faculties are average and are not strict.. if your are an academically weak person or economically weak person, then this college does provide you with an opportunity to study engineering. I am still regretting choosing this college.

Sir. I am studying in vels university for 1st year I want to change the university for 2nd year. It is possible to change deemed university

Monish Basaniwal Student Expert 11th Aug, 2019

Hello Sam,

We understand your concern. Pleas enote that most deemed universities do not allow change of college after just the first year as they would be having all your original documents, and before releasing them, they will ask you to pay the fees in full. I recommend you to contact your university on this and ask them directly.All the best!

Is VELS college,Chennai good to join

Anuj Pawar Student Expert 19th Jul, 2019

Hi there

I think VELS College, Chennai is a good option

Placements in college are very good. BPO companies visit the campus for placements. The college trains students for the better trail for campus interviews.

The infrastructure of the college is very good. The campus is spread over 10 acres at Pallavaram. Shivalaya auditorium is a hall with a seating capacity of 1500 people at a time. The campus is fully air-conditioned. The law block is air-conditioned and has lecture halls. Hence, VELS is a good place for studies and other activities.

Hope this helps

Hi Arjun,

This is some info about placements of both the colleges:

  • VELS University has an astounding record for grounds arrangements the nation over 
  • VELS University has a well-working Placement and Training Cell
  • The University has risen as a favored goal for some national and global associations to enlist the crisp ability. The superb situation foundation like pre-arrangement talks, composed tests, bunch dialogs, and meetings has taught in the understudies a profound established mechanical learning. The reliable position record outlines the dedication of the University towards its understudies 

The most significant pay offer relies upon the understudy's scholarly foundation and meeting execution, and it shifts between $ 85,000 to $ 153,500. It is an awesome school and fundamentally, the best Marine school in South India The school gives great positions for the most part from great organizations like Maersk and DA-Desk. At the point when contrasted with different universities, our situation was great.
