UCONNECT is proudly announced by UPES as part of its commitment to assisting alumni in all facets of their professional lives. UPES will provide assistance to alumni in many areas as part of the university initiative.
Some of the UPES notable alumni are:
Overall: I am Jagannath Community College (JCC) Rohini alumni Rishabh Yadav. I graduated from JCC with a Bachelor of Commerce degree in 2018, and I can tell with absolute certainty that it was one of the finest choices I have made for my academic career. JCC is a community of people who share the same passion for learning and personal development; it is not merely a college or university. The emphasis JCC places on helping students improve their entrepreneurial talents is among its most distinctive features. The school's Center for Entrepreneurship gives students the tools and encouragement they need to start their enterprises. I had the good fortune to take part in the Center's yearly business plan competition, which allowed me to polish my venture and present it to an investor panel. JCC's thriving cultural scene is another intriguing aspect. Every year, the institute puts on a cultural event named "Verve" to display the many artistic abilities of its students in the performing arts (music, dance, and theatre). The event draws participants from all around the nation and offers them a fantastic venue to present their talents and connect with like-minded people. The JCC faculty stands out for going above and beyond to serve their students. One time when I was having trouble with a certain subject, my professor took the time to sit down with me and go over the ideas until I fully grasped them. I have seldom encountered this kind of individualized care and attention in other educational settings.

Overall: The eligibility for the UPES Dehradun course required either taking the UPESAT with a valid score or attending a PI at one of the nearest centers. UPES Dehradun Application forms for all courses are available and can be downloaded from their website. A brochure with the fees, a detailed breakdown, and an application form is available for download. Some supportive deans and professors are concealing some information. As a result of this pandemic scenario, the college held an entrance test both offline and online. I was not eligible for any benefits because I belonged to the General Category. There are no reservation benefits, but the measurements are based on the student’s ability, as demonstrated by their performance in entrance and the concealment done by college authorities. There should be some improvements made to the UPES Dehradun admissions process, and they should provide some support to the reservation and assistance to students who are in desperate need of the type of education that they can receive there. However, other classmates have taken advantage of the reservation benefits information, which is also available on their university brochure. With an educational counsellor on hand during the PI, the University of Petroleum and Energy Studies Dehradun admission process can be rated as good overall.

Overall: The knowledge shared by our faculty in the classes is very practical and makes your ready for the industry. All of our lecturers and professors were well-qualified and some were from very prestigious backgrounds. They ensured that classes were interactive and students participated in classroom discussions and also pushed us towards extracurricular activities. I gained a lot of confidence and experience at the industry which is helping me out in my current workplace. UPES is also very popular for its amazing location surrounded by the mountains on all sides. That is an added bonus. The facilities available are also great and classrooms give very modern feel with all of the amenities are well-kept and the campus is kept very clean. Placements for BBA are good but as I have seen they are better for the MBA students. However, our batch got good placements and overall salary was also OK.
Overall: The university has a great campus overall surrounded by mountains and greenery. It gives the place a pleasant vibe. The campus atmosphere is energetic and there is some activity or the other going on but it still is very calm and great for studies. UPES also has very nice facilities available. The campus buildings are all very modern and classrooms are equipped with projectors. The faculty members are from prestigious institutes and have practical experience too. They are very knowledgeable and willing to help students at every step. The library is also very nice with good collection of course books. You can find all reputed and recommended books in the library here. The hostel facilities are good and many private hostels can also be found near campus, which are OK. The placements are Okayish. Most of our class got internships and placements but core companies are not that many. The placements can definitely be better but otherwise I would totally recommend this place to any nature-loving person!
