The first year fees is around 2 Lakh INR. The placement records are decent and you will experience an average college life.

I will suggest you to go for Dr. MGR institute as it is a old college. It is also a private college but fees is very decent for the courses it offers.

As you are interested in B.Tech with Artificial Intelligence. It is available with computer science branch. The AI/ML branch is more focused machine learning and it's techniques while AI/DS is more focused on Data Science. Data science is somewhat more vast than machine learning as you will have statistics in depth on your mathematics syllabus. It is the branch for those interested to become a data scientist in future.

While Machine Learning involved one to understand many algorithms available inthe market. In this field, the mathematics do not have as much statistics as DS but logic building courses are included for understanding the algorithms.

I suggest you to go for one, which interest you more either statistics (DS) or algorithms (ML).

Thank you?

Hi there,

Both colleges are equally good. One must has to go through some points before selecting any particular college. These selection criteria includes:

  • Placememts
  • Internship opportunities
  • Academics
  • Environment
  • Faculty

See, in my opinionI would suggest you go with Remo international college of aviation. See, the reason for selectingthis college is due to its high availability of courses. Also, the fees structure is very minimal with good placements in various aviation companies.

no doubt, facilities are much better in vels but one must go through placements for sure.

I hope this information will help you.

Thank you:)
