An overrated collage. 5.0

Collage infrastructure is very poor. No prior changes after 1921 i think when it was built. Many labs are eating junk. Hostels are placed at a 3-4 km of distance from the collage. Placement wise- core branches like mech, electrical do not have expected placement.

Overview 4.0

This college stands tall among one of the best UPTU colleges. Around 100 years of establishment add to its glory. College draws crowd from nearby cities. Only issue - Accesibility. This college needs a structural makeover.

Are you a student here?

The more you express, greater is the extent to which you can help other aspiring students. Your experience is extremely valuable
