    June 23, 2020 1:05:43

    Overall: I am a pass out from B.Sc. in Computer Science from Fergusson College and I can say it is one of the best colleges for this course. Our faculty members were very good who were available 24X7 to answer all the course-related queries. Moreover, if you are weak in a specific subject, you can also attend the extra classes organised by Fergusson College. I got placed from campus placement at Fergusson College. It has a very good placement record and almost all of my classmates were placed in top-notch companies of India. You also get a lot of internship opportunities with reputed companies in India at this college. The best thing which I can tell you about this college is that it not only emphasises on the curriculum of the course but also motivates students to get involved in various extracurricular activities within the campus. Whenever you get bored with studies, you can always wander at the beautiful campus and take part in various cultural fests organised by the college. All in all, if you want to make a fair choice for your career in B.Sc. in Computer Science, Fergusson college is the best choice for you.
