Ayushi TripathiB.E.(Hons.) Computer Science | 2024 | Feb 28, 2024 19:25:36
It is a tier 1 college, obviously one of the best in the country for pursuing engineering and sciences. The placements are better than offered by most engineering colleges, which is crucial given the current job market. Student life is also full of fun and never dull. Strict policies against bullying and sexual harassment are also implemented. The campus feels safe and also begins to feel like home in the years spent here. The food, although could never beat that consumed at home, is actually edible and good, contrary to most food served in hostels nationwide.
