A lot of facilities are provided. It is amazing to be a part of this family. The college has a good security and a night canteen as well. We can roam around whenever we want. The hostel rooms are not that good. The college gives us the freedom to learn whatever we want and do whatever we want. Good machinery is provided. The placement opportunities are very good here. The faculty is not so interactive and industry based knowledge is not their primary concern.
